ArtCards Christmas Crop

Well can you believe it?  It's almost the end of 2010 which can only mean one thing........... the final ArtCards crop of the year and its party time!!!!  Saturday 4th December in The Parish Hall, Brent Knoll, Somerset from 10am - 4pm we will be having a blast with challenges, a hot & cold buffet lunch and the ArtCards shop with not only some yummy NEW goodies but lots of SALE bargains too!!  

So for anyone who hasn't yet booked their place and who wants to come along and join in the fun you can book HERE - please note however that crop booking will be closing shortly as personalised items are created for all Xmas crop attendees and these cannot be done at very short notice.

If you are joining us then you can look forward to a Card Challenge, Scrapbook Challenge and one other challenge as yet not fully finalised - sure to be loads of fun and with our Secret Santa as well what possible reason could you have for not coming along...........  See you there on Saturday.

A few more layouts to share!!

Just before I give you details of the very last ArtCards crop of 2010 I thought I would share a couple more layouts with you that I have managed to finish over the last few weeks!!  The first one is of me clambering up 'The Wall' on our recent cruise on Navigator of the Seas from Royal Caribbean!!  It seemed like such a good idea when I mentioned that I wanted to try it now that I have lost so much weight, but when I was stood at the bottom in the harness, it seemed like a really stupid idea!!!  Anyway not wanting to lose face, I decided I had to do it and managed to get half way up before my arms were killing me and I simply had to give up and absail down (that was fun!!).  I was totally exhilarated despite my arms and legs shaking from the effort but I will try again next time I am on another RCCL cruise..........

The next one is one that I have wanted to create for a long time - ever since returning from northern France in the summer of 2008, I wanted to scrap this photo!!  In historic Rouen we wandered down a back street and came across this stunning Cake Shop - well we managed to resist the temptation of the goodies inside but the outside was so gorgeous that it had to be photographed!  Finally with the help of some Basic Grey Doilies and various Bazzill ribbons etc. it has taken shape.  I hope you like it although the photo of the finished layout was taken on a very dark day so I will rephotograph as soon as the light is better.

Don't forget the very last ArtCards crop of 2010 is being held on Saturday 4th December in Somerset - details available on the website......  Hope to see you there......

September's Crop Class by Cleo

Sorry its a bit late but finally I have found a couple of minutes to post my version of Cleo Jarvis' crop class from the ArtCards September Crop.  As you can see it was a beautiful layout where the title is on a flap that flips open to reveal more photos and journalling inside.  The flowers and swirl were cut from a sheet that was collaged with some of the yummy papers and I think you will agree that it was a truly lovely class so Thank You Cleo.

The great news is that Cleo will be returning to teach at the ArtCards crop in February 2011 so make sure you don't miss that one......
