Aberdeen - Still Buzzing!

Well, I am back from a truly amazing few days in Aberdeen!
It was brilliant - I really loved every minute of it.
Lots of pictures to share with you all so, here goes............
The fantastic B&B that I stayed at "Waldies" in Aberdeen! It was just a 10 minute stroll into Aberdeen - which was great. The bed's were SO comfy - the breakfast was perfect and the homemade chocolate krispie cakes, to die for!!! If you ever take a trip to Aberdeen - be sure to stay there!

I was teaching all day on the Friday to a lovely group of ladies!

It was Alcohol Inks in the morning and then stamping techniques in the afternoon - we had a blast and everyone was amazed to make 5 cards in the morning and 4 more in the afternoon! We had a busy day - but lots of laughter and chatter! Perfect!

The lovely Susan - who had never been on a workshop before and she was completely thrilled by what she acheived. She also made lots of new crafty friends - Don't you just love it when that happens! Meet new friends with the same interests! Love it!
Gill & Lisa - was so lovely to finally meet you both! Thankyou so much for the beautiful flowers and the lift to the B&B. You were both a complete joy to meet and teach. You supplied me with lots of giggles & bling!! LOL xx
The shop, Papeterie in Aberdeen is HUGE! It is connected to a working paper mill - therefore, they do amazing offers on boxes of card - Fill a box for a certain price. But, on top of all that, they stock some of the biggest names in craft and an amazing collection of Rubber Stamps including Stampendous; Hero Arts; Tim Holtz; Gorjuss; Woodware; EK Success; Martha Stewart together with Kanban; Nestabilities - the list goes on and on and on!

On the Saturday I was demonstrating instore using some of my favourite products from Woodware which included some of the most beautiful Stampendous stamps! I was so in love with the stamps I was using and everyone else was too - I had completely sold out by 12 o'clock of all of my favourites!!! Great Day!

Will post pictures of my finished cards from the workshops and demo day tomorrow together with information on the next time I will be back in Aberdeen!!
Yes, I am going back very soon and I am completely thrilled about it as everyone was asking me to book in more dates - so, will be back tomorrow with the full info!!
Watch this space.............................
Big Hugs

Thanks for coming all the way up to Aberdeen to see us. We all had a great time, and yes I have made new crafty chums. Also spent a fortune buying alcohol inks, Distress Inks, etc, etc. AND I went back out on Sunday and did the same again!! I learned so much. If you've never been to a workshop before, you should go...I had an amazing day xx
