This weekend I had the pleasure of spending time in the the company of one of my scrapping idols - the truly inspirational and oh so bloomin talented Debs - not only does she blow me away with her amazing designs, but her friendship is one that I have treasured for the past couple of years.....I just wish we had more opportunities to hang out together, as time spent with her is always just sooo darn funny.
We spent the weekend together in one of the quaintest Cornish villages - St Agnes, as we had been invited to go and teach at Scrap Angels Summer Scrapfest.
Our weekend from start to finish was a blast.
We battled our way through rain storms on Saturday, as we drove along the Atlantic highway before finally arriving at our destination - which was a little guest house set in the heart of the village.
We booked in, sorted ourselves out and then headed over to Scrap Angels HQ, where Rebbecca was waiting to greet us.
If you are ever in the area you must call in and spend some time visiting this treasure chest of scrapping delights.....Rebbecca has so many wonderful projects, which she has lovingly created, on display - they are sure to fire up your creative juices and set your imagination cogs a whirring....I know they did mine as I looked through her array of stunning minibooks and altered projects.
Anyways - Debs and I took a look around the store and somehow a few bits and pieces seemed to drop into our baskets - I'm not quite sure how that happened, but I'm sure glad it did ;)
After a hearty Sunday morning fry up, Debs and I headed over to the hotel and prepared ourselves for the day ahead.
Meeting all of the 41 ladies at the workshop was a complete pleasure. Everyone was so warm and friendly which made Debs and I feel so very welcome.
Debbie taught two stunning layout classes using KI Bloom and Crate Caitlin - which had everyone "ohhing" and "ahhing" as her classes were truly divine.
I taught a hinged layout class using Sassafras papers
and then funked things up a little by combining a little Heidi Swapp, Scenic Route, Prima and Chatterbox together.
It was really encouraging for both of us to hear that our classes had been well received, and that delegates had reported back to Rebbecca that they felt that they had learned new techniques and design principles which they will use again on future projects :D
Its always nice to hear positive feedback from your classes and I know we were both blown away by the wonderful comments which had been left - it really made our day :D
Debs and I both thoroughly enjoyed our time spent with everyone and at the end of the day left the event on such a high.
Debs is making her way home now, which is kinda sad, because we both wished we had had more time to spend together....maybe next time eh?
I'm planning on spending the rest of the day playing with my weekend purchases and can't wait to start attacking the papers :)
Its been an amazing weekend - thanks to Debs, Rebbecca and all of the wonderful ladies we got the chance to meet.....so a big big THANK YOU to you all from me.
