Drive home :(

This weekend has gone so quick!! :( I've had an amazing time though got very little scrapping done lol. The hotel was amazing and the staff so helpful. Cant wait until next year! Hopefully there will be a big enough gap I can stay the Sunday night too as I think that would have allowed me to relax a bit more. Still had fun though :) Last night was bingo and fancy dress, I didn't dress up but OMG the costumes of those who did were amazing! I don't have any pictures which is odd as I'm sure I took some but will put some up after the ladies put them on facebook. :) Gave us all a giggle when they walked though the lobby as they got some odd looks!
back to scrapping this was my attempt at the challenge. There was a cd envelope inside so I added that and used it to put the tickets and map of Disney inside. I didn't bother entering it in the end as it was nowhere near the standard but at least its done :)
Now this I was proud of :) For the third challenge Leslie gave us a wooden door hanger to alter. As soon as I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I came back last weekend with lots of scraps and crafty bits to give to Caitlin so wanted to make a minecraft themed door hanger for Cameron. Think it turned out quite well :)
Didn't win but the standard of the others was amazing so I wasn't surprised lol.
After a lovely morning I set off. Earlier than I intended but I was getting myself into such a state worrying about the drive I was worried about working myself up into a full blown panic attack. :( I haven't had one in a long time but I didn't want to risk it. Luckily the drive was nowhere near as bad as before. The roads were busy and it took almost an hour longer than usual but it wasn't so hectic and there wern't as many trucks driving what seemed like inches from my side. Glad to be home but sad that I won't see any of the girls for another year :(
The kids were excited to see me :) Scamp going mad as he did last time lol. Cameron was thrilled with his door hanger so was made up :) It's hard to make things for him as he's a boy and most crafty things are girly so was pleased to make this for him :) Good thing I left today in the end as I'm pretty much ready for bed lol. Amazing how tiring a weekend doing nothing can be!


  1. Sounds like you had a fab time, I love that door hanger, both my kids still love minecraft :)

  2. Glad you got home safe and had a less stressful drive home. Brilliant idea to use the CD case for leaflets and tickets - and I love the stepped PPs. Your doorhanger was lovely too - hope Cameron liked it!

  3. You need to have more confidence in your work Gemma!!!
    Glad you enjoyed it and the journey home wasn't bad and sorry you can't make it to the next one :(


Thanks for your comments. :)
