Tim Holtz workshop

Hi all and what a whirlwind I have had the last few days! But they were good ones. Travelled up to Coventry with my good buddy Sandra involving a car,four trains, four train stations and two taxi's to attend the long awaited workshop.
On arrival we met up with BJ who I met in blogland.

And we had a chance to look around,grab a drink and nosey around the shop and meet of course Tim and Mario before the workshop :-)

And I passed on a little pressie via Mario

And also the lovely Dyan

And so next down to business and this was our table ready for action

And we were all given a apron to keep which I promptly went and got signed as it would have been rude not too lol

And the fun began, Tim is a taskmaster but so fun and enthusiastic about his art and him and Mario were so helpful and the ladies from Personal Impressions who organised this were lovely and we had the table at the front :-)

Sandra, Jackie and Sue getting ready to craft

We had so many goodies to use to make our tags

Yes I was getting messy and crafting

And Sandra was so brave wearing white lol

Ad of course we needed help from Mario :-)

And look at Angie's smile

My finished book and phew I was worn out

L to R are Jackie,Sandra, Sue, Me and Angie

And all the above ladies and the lovely BJ and Sue I can still see you lol

And this has to be one of my fave pics as its all those special peeps of mine

And once we had finished making our tag book and getting over the shock of being given so many yummy goodies also to keep from making the project

They presented us all with these fab goodies, a fab messenger bag to hold our goodies,a signed copy of his book and a scrubby to get clean

And of course it would have been rude not buy something and am looking forward to playing with them

And finally my tag book which I so adored making and using all the fab embellishments and getting inky

A quick glimpse of inside,need to print of my photos and add and finish embellishing with all my goodies

And me and Sandra finished off the day in the bar before crashing out in our hotel room

So that was my big adventure,can't quite believe it was real and still on a high.x
