Make 'n Takes from Guildford.

Only just over a week late but better late than never - *LOL*.

Twenty southern members (plus one!) of the imag-e-nation forum had a meet in Guildford last Saturday. Beautifully organised by Greta who commandeered the local Scout hut and had one of her sons lay on a buffet for lunch. Think they thought they were feeding the 5000 there was so much food and it was delicious. I organised a draw which meant that everybody went home with a mini goodie bag - some good stuff and some not so good but that was the luck of the draw. Most seemed happy with what they ended up with though. Greta also arranged for her 'local' Stampin' Up demonstrator to join us for the day. Did I say 'local'? Well, if you consider a 4 hour train journey to get to us (a slightly quicker one home) and an overnight stay with Greta so that she made it on time then I guess she's local .... *LOL!* Our Toni decided to join us all the way from Tamworth, making 21 if us in total and, as she is an SU demonstrator she agreed to do some make 'n takes for us to fill part of the day. I made the card on the day, the other cuties - made from punched shapes - I made at home.

All made with SU products

The rest of the day was filled with stamping images, making a box as per the tutorial here (but left for the maker to embellish in their own way and there were a fair few different versions!), Copic and watercolouring demonstrations from Toni and Jackie, digi-scrapbooking demo courtesy of Helen (who also ran a sale, giveaway & swap table) and die-cutting. I'm sure there were other things ... oh yes, chatting!!

A great day was had by all and we're all looking forward to the next one ........... *grin!*
