Summer came early for Easter...

Wow what a fabulous day today- the sun was out early so we decided to make a day of it in the garden. First we had some fun on the trampoline and after last weekend's escapades it was just one at a time and well supervised!

Then Annamarie arrived with her family and we had an early Easter Egg hunt using a €5 kit from Tesco which gave hours of fun for the little ones. They insisted on us hiding the same chocolate stash a few times in a row as the chase was more fun than the reward.

While all this was going on Annamarie and I got a chance to scrap a little. I finished preparing my class for next weekend's Easter Party Crop in Le Cheile centre, Donnycarney. I will be teaching a scrapbook layout using Jenni Bowlin's 'Trendy' range of papers. The event will be run all day from 10am -5pm and it'll be a fun packed day with classes, prizes and craic!

Jennie Bowlin 'Trendy' Collection - the kit includes all of the above ;-)

And here's a little sneak peak of what we will be making. It's a double LO with an open theme. You will need to bring just one large photo (5x7 or a little larger in landscape format) to suit the papers. B&W will sit well with this range.

Annamarie from The Scrapbook Store has created a fabulous LO using Pink Paislee Winsome Fascinating papers and they are just gorgeous!

And Caroline Moore will be teaching you how to make a handmade journal. These photos show you a finished journal but the class will involve the making of the journal which you can decorate yourself afterwards. More details of Caroline's class are available on the forum:

And here is a sneak preview of her kit for the class...
