We're back from our holidays and gearing up for the crop....

For those of you who didn't know we have just returned from our annual summer holiday - this year we went off to the Costa del Sol where it became exceedingly hot in the last of our two weeks there!! The day we went off to Gibraltar it was a sizzling 40 degrees and walking down the main shopping street where there was little if any breeze, made it feel like you were in an oven!!! Our holiday this year was quite different to our usual holidays where we are off out sightseeing most days - this year we decided that as I had been having lots of health problems before we went and Gary was very tired from work, we would have a much more restful time. Our apartment opened up onto the pool deck so we had sunbeds available for us each day and it was lovely to chill out on those but to be able to go back onto our covered patio area when it got a bit too hot!! The complex where we stayed was lovely and in a good position and the main pool area had recently been refurbished which was brilliant. So we're all refreshed and gearing up for our monthly Brent Knoll Crop this coming Saturday.

Design Team member May is doing both the Scrapbooking Class and the Cardmaking Class this month as I wouldn't have had time to create a class due to my holiday. The Card Class is going to be a Never ending Card, the colourway is Black and White and you can bring along any co-ordinating embellishments you want as long as they are not too dimensional or it will interfere with the working of the card. I'm sure this is going to be a real fun class to take!!

The Scrapbook Class is using resist stamping with Glimmer Mists and will require a photo either 6" x 4" landscape format or if you wish you could use a 7" x 5" landscape size. The papers being used are not yet finalised but will be Basic Grey Arabella and either Basic Grey Windermere or Making Memories Rouge Big Dot. Either way it will be a pink and green page so please select a photo that will go with those papers. This page will be a great page to do and with numbers limited please make sure that you have purchased your Class if you want to take part - it may be that we won't have any spare places to offer on the day as we usually do. So don't miss out if you want to do it.....

My mum is bringing along some of her fabulous Mince Pies this month so you can get your tastebuds going for those..... I'm sure we will have another fun day on Saturday so pack up your bags and we'll see you there.........
