Scrapbooking Tuesday - Well nearly....WOYWW

Hello Friends

I have not got a layout to share with you today, but I though I might share some pictures that WILL be going in to a layout/mini very soon!

As some of you may by now know, I and 17 WOYWW friends had a gathering on Saturday in Sunny - yes I did say SUNNY, Burbage with the lovely Hostess Julia and her (equally lovely) co-Hostess Jan (aka LLJ).  So here is the gang photo, taken by the Gorgeous Gordon....

I have to say that not an awful lot of scrapbooking, quilting, painting, lacemaking, quilting, stamping actually took place, but an awful lot of nattering, "taking inspiration" walks (aka being nosey - but isn't that what WOYWW is all about!), hugging and making friends did take place.  

I even managed to catch a rare photo of Julia sitting down, not fretting, and managing the Big Shot die cutting!!  Oh yes!  Julia did manage to trim her nails on the guillotine too!

I took time to stop on the way out of Burbage to take some photos of the chocolate box houses including this one.....I need to rename my Cottage!

And who could resist taking a picture of these guys!!   Obviously feeling quite smug that they are now safe as a certain advert has now been banned!

The food was fantastic, the company was great and we are ALL looking forward to Crop III.  I am sure Julia will announce the date of the next Crop early so be sure to make a note in your diary when it happens! 

Now then.....what papers shall I use and will it be a mini album or layout?.........last seen on the floor looking through papers in her craft room!

Hettie, I am getting greener with every photo of the crop that is coming in my blog feed! This is torture as I couldn't come.
Looks like a great time was had by all. ;-)

I would have loved to be there but alas! It would have taken me about 20 hours to get there! So thanks for giving us a glimpse of the fun ! Patsy

Nice gnomes!! I bet the folk who live at the top end of the village were wondering what the hell you were doing!!
It was a fab weekend....busy but fun...and all the better for being able to sit out in the sun!
See ya soon,

Perhaps at Crop III Julia and LLJ should advise everyone NOT to take anything crafty to do . . . it'll just be nattering and eating!!!! LOL!

Glad you all had a marvellous time.
