No matter what happens or what arrangements we make we always end up teararsing round the studio before a weekend.Something always crops up to throw a spanner in the works.  And today was no exception.I finally parked my bum at 7pm which gave me 10 mins of quiet time to colour, lol. I then suddenly died, and was querying my sanity at fitting in all these weekends. Then the ladies started arriving, and what a fabby bunch they bare. Well, thats one way to perk me up. They are lively and also very lovely. Unfortunately the lovely Anne Marie is sat at home with a face on as she was diagnosed with mumps earlier today. How pissed would you feel if that was you. You booked a course months before, couldnt wait for the day, even rang up all excited 2 days ago and then get told you cant come cos you,ve got mumps..??? And to make it worse your mates you were going with are there without you..!!! Nightmare. Just get well and I,ll bump you onto the next available space, promise..

#Heres the survival kits waiting to go out.

Heres all the lovely lovely ladies busy priming their pages.

And lucky old me has received more gorgeous gifts
The lovely Anne brought me my faves, Thorntons toffee.

The lovely Emma really surprised me with a new colouring book to make up for the fact that this year Mum couldn,t ( really touched at that x)

And look at this beauty from thr lovely Jude all the way from Inverurie (hope I spelt it right??). Yes its an Emma Bridgewater mug.

But not just any Emma Bridgewater mug, Jude had this one commissioned especially for me, How frikkin cool is that..???

The more wine drank the louder they became , I hope they get a good nights sleep an didn't carry on the banter in the pub. They will need clear heads in the morning.

It is a pleasure to show you these next two pages from the lovely SuzyQ. she hasnt journaled for a while and relished getting stuck in on Sunday. She has just discover my downloads and is loving them. Just look at the result.

so cool..!!!

Heres another journal page from me

Enjoy xx
