Aww, we come to the end again...

So here we go with day 3 of the Fabby Dabby and surprisingly they were all bright and breezy..!!! And even breezier when they were filled with tea and crumpets...

Just look at the mess they made...

Here's their finished tags all done with the Claudine Hellmuth products.

And don't the sleighs look fabulous lined up like this..??

We had a draw at the end of the day for the Tree painting. The lovely Katie pulled out Pandora's name.

Way to go Pandora....

This is the lovely Jackie, whos husband bought this weekend for her as a birthday treat. Now that's my kind of treat...

And here's four  missing from yesterdays sleigh show and tell.

Alix,Jackie, Paula and Katy.

So thats it another fabuloso weekend  over. I love them but I am absolutely drained when they are over. So after clearing up, I came home and fell in the bath with a bottle of Becks. I am now sat on the couch whilst J is cooking my tea....Ooooh could get used to this, lmao.

Enjoy xx

Ooooh getting there slowly..!!!

Ha ha, cant work out the placing of you can see from yesterday. And, I hasten to add, I only had 2 sips of the wine whilst blogging, so it wasnt that. I have corrected it as best I can but its still wonky, lol. Big big thanks to the lovely Lyn who set me off on the right track in the first place. You can see her fabby blog HERE 
I am knee deep in kits for this weekends fabby dabby, which is a sell out. Love my weekends and they are all sold out through to March..!!! I promise to give you some new dates soon and then you can earmark them to people as Christmas gifts, lol....
The Tuesday ladies are busy making their tags, its not step by step, and has confused them totally..!!! Well they,ve only been coming for 5 years, lmao..!!! Heres the tags.

I had to take J somewhere today which involved me sitting in the car for 2 hours.I threw some journaling bits in a bag, but had no paint, no scissors...So I was severely limited in what I could do, lol. So one torn pair of eyes and bags of doodling later heres the result.

Well thats it for tonight, sorry, but I,ve got a long day tomorrow.... See you then.
