An Altered Book!...

Just thought I would share with you our latest workshop project, using the gorgeous Graphics 45 paper and embelishments. Everyone brought in their own book, which most picked up in charity shops! (Great place to find all sorts!!).

O.M.G has it really been that long!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess it has been that long since I've been on this, my first original blog! Although the blog has been quiet all this time, I certainly haven't been quiet - quite the opposite, I just moved on to doing other things and have been non stop with workshops/demos and Retreats all thrown in - workshops in various locations and our very own Altered Paperie Retreat which although our AP blog is also lacking you will still be able to see some pics. Our last retreat having just been in October 2013, date for the next one, which will be around October time (2014) we will let you know asap.

In the meantime, I just thought I would let you know of some regular up and coming workshops:

So Proud!!!......and a "little" news?!

Once again, I find myself so behind with my blogging! - I have to admit that a few weeks ago I had a little set back with it, some of you will know why :-( - I'm not going to bother with the details 'cause its just too crazy!! - BUT, I have just been itching to post this blog, for which I put together very quickly, this 'cricket' card.

Last week my oldest was selected to play cricket for the youths (u17) England team :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) (lots of smiley faces!!!). We are proud parents anyway, but after all the hard work, training etc that he has put in, its just such an achievement - he's excited and we are all excited for him too.......hence the reason why I had to put together this card so quickly, as we found out Tuesday (pm) and were going out for dinner Thursday to celebrate- not to mention how lucky I was to come across a cricket stamp plate, as I didnt have one and trying to find a card in the shops (yes, I'm afraid I have to admitt that I often find myself having to buy cards....a little thing called 'lack of time'!!! - except really special occassions!) was a dead end! - Anyway, I found one and managed to get it made by Thursday!....

Now I also do have a 'little' news, and if you're one of my friends/followers on facebook - (there's a FB link on side), you'll be able to see what I'm talking about! - sorry bloggers!!! - just takes too long to download pics on here!.

Anyway, all for now - hope to be back soon (always hoping!!!!) with some new Xmas projects...yes, I did say "Xmas" lol xx
