Great British Craft Workshop...

Morning folks...oh boy did Enfys and I have a FUN FUN FUN day at our Great British Craft Workshop at Craftwork Cards with 53 lovely super duper crafty girls...a big thank you to you all for coming along and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. I'll be sharing all the projects and lots of photos over the next few days but first we had to get to Leeds and you know me...there has to be a bit of a saga involved...a chilly soggy adventure of delayed and broken down trains...taxi drivers who didn't know where they were going before we finally arrived at Craftwork Cards on Friday afternoon...most of the kitting and setting up had already been done...just a few bits and pieces for Enfys Julie and yours truly to pop into the kits...
 all set up...
Sue and Julie ran us back to our hotel (probably thought it was safer than letting us loose in Leeds unescorted)
for a yummy dinner followed by a Costa Fortune coffee...crikey at £4.50 each they must have milked a sacred cow...
time to tuck ourselves up in bed and have a good giggle about the day's travel adventures...we slept like logs and managed to make our way back for the workshop despite the train breaking down and another mad changing platforms sprint around Leeds station ready to meet up with all our wonderful crafty buddies...
 who were oohing and aahing over all the goodies in the shop...
and checking out the gorgeous samples...
time to get the show on the road kicking off with the first project...
my table decoration using the Blush Rose Papers and die cuts flowers...lots of glitter and a bit of Frantage fun...
followed by a card designed by Enfys using the beautiful Flying High Collection...
and doesn't time fly when you're having fun...before we knew it was time to break for lunch and very yummy it was too but I'll be back tomorrow to share what we made in the afternoon...

Hi Kath certainly looks like fun was had by all and makes up for the travel chaos. The pictures are great thanks for sharing them. Think Costa a lot for coffee would be a better name. Thanks everyone for the congrats yesterday, still on a high Take care x

Looks like a fun time was had by all, despite train mishaps! Although, the mishaps are all part of the fun aren't they?

Hi Kath, I bet the crafters were fair cuffed with your creation and the card, the air balloons are nice for a blokes card. Look forward to hearing about your escapades...Trish
