Welcome to Saturday and it's challenge day +

Plus what I hear you cry ...... plus PIX! I met a new crafting friend (well, we've been blogging buddy's for quite a while) on Thursday when she came to visit. We went out to dinner on Thursday evening along with the husbands and then crafted together all day Friday. We went to a local watering hole where the menu was quite interesting, the service good and the staff friendly - no pix though, too interested in getting to know one another! Sorry!.... want to see what we got up to? 

Ready to get cracking, all we need is Sarn!

First of all we laid out our dimensional embellishments

Sarn wore purple socks in my honour!

Sarn applying gesso, with gusto!

Sarn, thank you so much for making the trip and for the flowers and pastries too! - I had a blast and I hope you did too. AND you NOW appreciate just how TITCHY my work space is .... compact and bijou doesn't come close but it IS crammed with goodies isn't it?!?!? How lucky am I? I will share more pix and details over the coming few days so I hope you will stop by and check it out

Anyway, back to challenge day .....
