Last weekend my crafty buddy Francesca and I went to the NEC, it was a pretty exhausting weekend mainly due to lack of sleep: firstly from the excitement the night before we left, then the very early start on Saturday morning to get there in time. Saturday was MANIC in the NEC so much so that they stopped people entering on two occasions during the day. Sunday was a much calmer day; people didn't seem so frantic and a fair nights sleep helped.

Oh my goodness me, as I was looking at top photo before uploading I realised that I hadn't included the pieces from the mini workshops plus a few more purchases:
Saturday using Pan Pastels, Graph-it pens, a shimmery medium (sorry I can't remember the name of it)
Sunday we managed to get onto two workshops firstly with Graphic 45 and lastly WOW. I'm looking forward to the weekend when I'll hopefully get a chance to play ;-)
