All day crop

  I spent Saturday with these lovely ladies.
you'd never know these are all scrapbookers - not one of them posed for a photograph for me lol!
 and these lovely young ladies.

Recently I was very much inspired by Julie Kirk's postal series and was also very fortunate to win her postal themed giveaway.
Before the crop I prepared these money envelopes using the postal stamp punches.

There were two challenges were the punches and stamps were used over and over...

....the first one was to create six 4x6 postcards, here are my ones......the front....
 and the back.
(postcards by Jackie, Ruth, Charlene and Tracy)

  Some joined in and this is what they came up with. Ruth's postcards were fantastic, she has recently purchased an DSLR camera and her very autumnal photos were fabulous. Jackie went with a Christmas theme and has decided to use these for her Christmas Journal this year, when she will add a 4 x6 photo on the reverse. Tracy and Charlene created postcards to show a holiday and a day out!

Well done to Tracy who won the challenge and received a page kit.

The second challenge was to create a 12x12 page to sit with the postcards. Here is my one....

 and here is what the ladies created...
Gitte, Sally, Tracy and Charlene......
Sam, Jackie and Ruth.

Congratulations to Sally who received a page kit for winning this challenge.....

......and a HUGE thank you to everyone who came along for the day.
I'm looking forward to the next one.
