Scrapping really has taken a bit of a back burner - however I have managed to grab a few sessions in my scrap room as and when time (and my Mojo) has allowed.
At the beginning of October I attended The Fairytale event in Amsterdam. My decision to attend was made after lots of careful thought and consideration.....Hubs was in the hospital being cared for - my family were all visiting to help out with the guys etc - so with their blessing I took myself off for a couple of days - it was really difficult to leave the family, but I needed to have a break away from the upheaval at home.
The event took place in an old Dutch castle - which was the most amazing setting. It was fun to meet up with some of my Dutch pals and spend time with them - however my mind was elsewhere and I will confess to having to disappear a few times to go and have a little cry.
Truike, enough for her amazing hospitality and her words of support when I began to feel emotional and was missing being home.
Details of next years event will be available soon - if you fancy a scrapbooking weekend away I would highly recommend checking out The FairyTale Event - the classes were all amazing with kits filled to overflowing......plus the Dutch scrappers are such a friendly and welcoming bunch of girls - you'd have a great time - guaranteed!
We have had lots of family visiting - all wanting to spend time with his Nibs.
My Sis and her clan came to stay for a few days and then my Lil Sis and her family followed. (I'm extremely proud of my Lil Sis as she recently won The 2010 Pixel Awards for The UK's BEST Independent Photographic Mini Lab.)
Bobs has been busy surfing lots and J - well as if Hubs injuries haven't been enough to cope with - J decided to come off his bike and fall head first into a bramble bush! OUCH!We were picking thorns out of his face for days!
Normal service resumed :D
