CraftEire ... and other stuff!!

Oh, I had such a fabulous time at CraftEire!! I got to meet so many lovely ladies ... some new faces, some not so new! The hotel was gorgeous and we had a beautiful dinner there on the Friday night. On Saturday, (after some more top nosh for breakfast :) I did four classes and also got to spend plenty of time in the crop room chatting, shopping .... and a bit of crafting too. (I even got to sit at the same table as Jane Dean! ) My first class was at 9am with Eva, but it was well worth the early start. We made a vase of K&Co flowers with a mini lo on one of the stems ... it was just beautiful! I also did both of Elisa's classes ... a very cool wall hanging with mini los in four frames, and a lovely lo with some bright and funky Cherry Arte papers. My last class was with Jane Dean where we made a lo with a very cool popup house. Of course, I didn't finish anything (I'm the slowest scrapper ever!) but I will post photos when I get things finished. I probably wont get to finish them until I'm finished my SA stuff for this month (just got a big package of gorgeous stuff at the end of last week ... lots of ribbons :) but I definitely will finish them coz I love them all:)

I got the new issue of Creativity life today in Inspiring Ideas. Our other los (the ones that didn't appear on the Creativity Life blog) are in there.

I'll leave you with a few cards I made in the crop room at the weekend. I just adore these Japanese doll stamps from hero arts and was inspired to use them after seeing a gorgeous card on Jackies blog. (Jackie did some fabulous make and takes in the crop room at the weekend too!)
