Happy Birthday & Thank You... Lindsay.

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. The weather has been awful here... like back to winter but it didn't spoil my weekend! I spent Saturday in the company of some really fabulous ladies. It's a shame it was over all too quickly!

I went to a Ranger's Technique workshop by Lindsay Mason held at Dawn Bibby's Design Studio & met up with some fantastic Bloggers! The time just flew by & it was over far too quickly!

A little birdie told me a while ago it's Lindsay's Birthday today! I had so much fun making this little handy notepad for Lindsay.

Happy Birthday Lindsay.xx

We didn't have much time for photos. We were really busy. I think Lindsay went above & beyond to make our workshop a total success in everyway.
Well Done & Thank You Lindsay.xx

Some of my Atc technique samples, first attempts!

I was lucky enough to swap a couple of Atc's. I took some with me to say Hi..... & wasn't expecting any in return so that was a lovely surprise!

I also have a lovely story to share!

A couple of months ago I was lucky enough to win a stamp on Ebay & it appeared on my Wednesday workspace & She got in touch when she noticed it! & low & behold it was the same stamp she had just sold! How lucky is that! I got a gorgeous stamp & a beautiful new friend!

..... it started with a stamp!

Oh my gosh!!!!! my hair was a mess after arriving in the rain & goodness, I said my pregnacy fat hadn't gone far.... I wasn't joking... ~blushing~ like mad!

It was great fun meeting up with She, Lindsay, Heather & Joanne. What a talented bunch of ladies.

Whenever I see Mushroom Adirondack colour wash spray!!!! (me & Joanne kept ending up with it! :) I will always think of my fabulous afternoon with these very kind, creative ladies. Thanks for a fun afternoon. Gez.xx

Thanks for calling by my blog & a BIG Thank You if you get the chance to leave a comment. Have a great week. Hugs, Gez.xx

  10. It was lovely to meet up with you on Saturday and yes, we did have a lot of fun, didn't we, and came away with lots of new techniques & ideas! Lindsay's notebook looks beautiful too, maybe I'll get to see it when I meet up with her on Friday. Lovely pic of you and She, by the way! Heather x

  11. I've just gone through your list of followers to see if I joined as I thought I had ages ago, but no!! I have now, so sorry. My memory lapses are allowed now I'm an OAP!! Thank you again for the beautiful ATC an d the thought behind it, but more so, thanks for your wonderful company on Saturday. I have never had such fun in a very long time believe me. I hope we can all get together again for another wonderfully 'mad' day. Wish we could all book Lindsay for ourselves, now that would be fun.
