WOYWW - Playing Nicely With Friends !

Well just a short post tonight as I have spent a long couple of days flying over to Ireland & travelling to just north of Cork for a meeting today.

But I did get to spend some happy crafty times with friends this past week !

Last Wednesday we were very industrious at our little Scrapclub as we turned to a bit of non-scrappy crafting !

We each had a small sturdy box to alter - it was great to see how everyone took a completely different tack - each box looked totally different as we all have our own style !

Here's how my box turned out - we're hoping to get a photo of them all together finished at some stage !

And on Saturday as Much Beloved headed to Manchester to watch footie Lynda was kind enough to come over for a playdate !

We decided to create a little canvas in the Finnabair style - each in very different colours - we had great fun getting very painty & gluey !!

Here's the original blank canvas !

And this is where we got them to on Saturday - just some Treasured Gold to add !

And I finally got a bunch of ATC's underway for the 5th WOYWW anniversary !
Just got to finish them now !!
Have a great crafty week Ali
