Botancical Tea Party

Yesterday saw our first Graphic 45 workshop with the marvellous Clare Charvill, the only UK member of the 
Graphic 45 Design Team. 
We were so excited, kits were all packed up days ago, lots of G45 Botanical Tea papers, ready for the great 'you have to cut it up' day.
Early Sunday morning the tables looked like this, nicely set out, clean and tidy, some nibbles to help keep the blood sugar up too. 
First to arrive were these two...........
Lovely friends Caz and Miriam, they promised to be 
good which is a first!!!
Lovley tutor Clare, she is sooooo organised this lady.
Oh, Pauline too, this was right up her street being a G45 No1 fan.
and the they were off, tables were a wreck in minutes, I dare not show you the floor! Glue and paper everywhere LOL
 but oh what fun.
Cutting a straight line is essential so Miriam is 
concentrating hard here
Caz was soooo scared of cutting up the paper, I mean I understand that perfectly well, G45 is for stroking, isn't it? No? Oh you can cut it up.............just as well then.........
Oh yes, a lovely pile of cut up paper
Gloria's front cover............
after making the kraft card album the ladies then 
used the papers to decorate
I can't show you each and every page but I am sure Miriam won't mind me showing you a couple of her pages, this is the front cover
a double page spread
and the back cover..............just fantastic I can tell you.
and after a long day of cutting and sticking, here they all are, apart from Yvonne who was camera shy (unlike me it seems!)
Clare will be back in July and we have a few spaces so if you want to come and cut up Graphic 45 papers then you know what to do
thanks for popping by!

It was a great day - we definitely got over our unwillingness to cut the G45 papers!
Lovely project with plenty of space for photos and/or journaling.
And we kept our promise and were good for the day - even with Ruth at our end of the table!
Looking forward to July's workshop now. :-)
