I spent a couple of days this week with Glenda, Lynn and the rest of the team from Elusive Images. it was actually just two days. I set off Monday morning and was back early evening on Tuesday but it felt like a week. Lots of other people there I knew, Like Lynn and Nicki from Flutterby Crafts and Gillian from Stamp to your Arts Content.
Gillian is from a company that makes stamps in a place very near where I was born and it is always nice to see her. She is always full of tips and always willing to share, a true crafter.
Lynn and Nicki are girls I have met at Stitches over the years. I am really looking forward to going down to the Artstamps Show at Newbury so we can get together again (watch out Newbury) As I had gone along on my own this time Lynn and Nicki looked after me ( a lot!!) well done girls
Another face I was very pleased to see was Craole Ingram. Carole works for another well know stamper Paddy!, but we met when she came along to demonstrate Elusive Images at the Craft Place in Beverley a couple of year ago. We met again recently when she visited our stand at Post Sunlight Stamp Show. Carole is another real Crafter, and I was lucky enough to have her in the same group as Gillian and myself. So lots of inspiration there.
but that is only 4 out of 40 people on the "retreat". Everyone attending had lots to offer and I made more new friends.
Then we had The Elusive Images team headed up by Glenda and Lynn. Add into this mix 4 big tables groaning with Elusive Images products, super food including homemade biscuits in the breaks, and the most fantastic setting.
How much more can one girl take? well it not over yet, we had a lovely good bag for attending full of Eluisve Images stamps. Spot prizes through the two days, a trip to the warehouse to bag some bargins and a shopping list of excellent new products. I just can't wait for mine to arrive. I have bought lots of glimmer mists so if you are going to see us at the scrappers Charity day ( check out www.beverleyscrapper.blogspot.com ) or at Artstamps Newbury then you might just be able to get some glimmer mists or tinkabella inks for yourself!! You may interested to know I donated several of the stamp sets from My goody Bag to the Charity Craft Day, so go look at Beverley Scrappers Blog to find out how you could win them for yourself!!!
Sorry I don't have any pictures from the retreat but I had other things to do!! check out Glendas pictures on her blog
