Today im posting the scrapbook pages that i completed after attending the Crafters Companion Craftaganza in Darlington 2009 - it was a fantastic jam packed week that i had away from home and managed to fit in 2 days for shopping in Newcastle at the Metro centre before and after the event.

Now on for the photos - sorry but some of them are a little out of focus as my camera is playing up today.

Meg from CC who orgnised the whole event.

The one and only Sara Davies.

Anthony Minnis from (now) Pinflair but at the time (dufex).

The one and only queen of inkyness Sheena Douglass. I have the priviledge of being on this talented lady's design team! This was also the very first time we met.

This pic shows me with Leann Chivers from CC.

Another CC staff member - this time Claire Hamer.

This photo shows me with the Hougie board creator - Kay Rutter.

I really like this photo as its a smiley jolly one. Its with Mrs Flowersoft - Noreen Mckee

Such a  "cute" photo of me with Jayne Nestorenko.

Sara showing off her award she won from the night before.

I was sitting at the naughty table this particular night as i had all the worshop hosts. This night after dinner they were all presented with lovely flowers from all of us who took part in the extravaganza as a token of appreciation for their time, efforts, support and friendship throughout the event.

On children in need night some of us wore appropriate head gear!! The pic on the RHS shows my table  we were the naughty rowdy ones - im up the top on the Left with my ears on, Carol is on the right pointing to somone  and Jacqui Dennis on the bottom left. 
sorry but i cant remember everyone elses names.

At the end of the event we all got presented by Sara with a certificate of attendance an a lovely Hand Created by stamp with your initials - in the CC colours!

It was a great event, very well organised.  The hotel was brilliant, the food excellent and the staff very accomodating to us loud rabble!!  The CC staff were to be commended for putting up with us all too.
There was of course a shop for us to purchase CC items from their website - it was also double club points too. Needless to say i stocked up on PLENTY stash.
The nights were spent with a drink or 2 in hand and a few other goings on that (cough cough) 
cannot be repeated !!!
