The best Easter ever …


… well maybe not ever … there was a pretty good one a few thousand years back … but this one has worked out pretty well for me in other ways.


I decided to spend Easter in Dunedin visiting family, with the added bonus of getting to watch this master artist at work. It was pretty fun watching her play with paints, sprays and tea bags …


And then getting to play myself …


Some serious concentrating took place … and a bit of meeting some nice people who up until now have only lived inside my computer.


Here’s the final layout from the ‘Tea for Two’ class.


Named cos we used real life teabags to colour/age it a bit.


There was a serious amount of product in the kit … so much that I really only used leftovers from the first class to complete this layout … I did add a few bits I’d brought from my own collection … but more because they were ‘meaningful’ extras.


The other class we did was the journal covers. I need to wait till I get home to re-punch the holes and put it together … a little bit more complicated because I managed to make my back cover upside down … duh!


I’ve used a few bits from my own collection again … just to make it more meaningful to me.


Not so happy with the way the colours turned out but I enjoyed the process … a lot!


And here’s a couple of group shots I’ve pinched from Finnabair.








Today has been all hot cross buns and easter eggs and a Church service to keep it all in perspective!


Hope your weekend is going equally as well.
