THE RETREAT - PART 2

So Saturday dawned....after getting the room set up on the Friday night we were all relaxed on Saturday morning and enjoyed a lovely breakfast...needing to build our energy !!
Our room was lovely, so spacious...


Here's one side....


Here's part of the other...oh and there was a bit in the middle.....so here's a panoramic view of the whole thing..


Here's a few more of our lovely ladies slaving away....

















Sam kindly bought everyone a CARAMAC...


Sara kindly shared her birthday with us :) so we MADE her stand up while we belted out 'Happy Birthday'
Our first project was a gorgeous mini album, a nice little starter for the weekend...


Here's Alison working on page three..
We then went on to make the 'BIG BOY'....this was rather special...


And they all loved the set of stamps they got with it !!!
This project took us till the end of the evening, but not before they all made a ring using the Melt-It and silicone moulds. It was then onto dinner and the bar to finish the evening off....ready to start all again tomorrow....... More to follow...

Happy December everyone Marion xxx
