Happy Saturday crafting with Papertrey Ink and Stamp-a-faire 2012.

 A little cottage down by the bridge.
 Road signs in Ireland dont always make a lot of sense but if you follow them you'll get there sometime, somehow !

 The beach last night lovely and quiet.  We took this lovely photo of  The little local shop that sells almost everything. It is where I got to spend my pocket money as a kid on sweet and icecreams.   A piece of my childhood....

 All set out  and ready in one of the tiny bedrooms in the mobile home.  Huh ! Read on....

We had a lovely trip to Wicklow yesterday afternoon. No heavy traffic, lovely sunshine and the promise of a lovely weekend. The journey took less than an hour and after a quick unpack of the car we went for walk to enjoy the weather and took some photos.  Later  I laid out all my bits and bobs on one of the beds in one of the tiny bedrooms ready for today.

After a nice cup of tea we tested the broadband strength and it looked promising. However trying to view videos was a challenge to say the least. I was able to tune into and post on the meet and greet thread on the forum and then to link to my blog. However it was very difficult to see the videos. I got to see Nichole's opening and the beginning of Melissa Philips but then it stopped and it looked like it would take forever to download. I was happy to stay and just use the blog posts but hubby pressed me to come back home and enjoy all the festivities in full.  With a lot of laughter we packed the car again this morning and drove back home.  Why or why can't I ever take the easy road......

Anyway now that I'm settled again I'm having the time of my life at Stamp-a-faire. The tutorials and videos are out of this world. The effort and hard work put into the event by everyone at Papertrey Ink really shows. Thank you all so much.

This is my card from the Make-n-take

Thank you Nichole for a wonderful tutorial. You made everything so straight forward and simple. I really enjoyed taking part in this. I just love this stamp set.

and this is my entry for the Ribbon Techniques Challenge

Can you see the little camp badge ?

Friends and family will  tell you I have a real thing for notebooks. I could n't tell you how many I have made since I first saw them on michellewooderson's blog. I was very happy to partake in Michelle's ribbon tutorial  today. I have been a great fan of her work and am very grateful for all the wonderful inspiration over the past years. Thank you Michelle.
