Finn Workshop: BEST WEEKEND EVER {Pic Heavy}

So as you may already know a whole bunch of us were lucky enough to get places on the
UK Debut class of
It was Ania's very 1st time teaching here in the UK but i'm sure it won't be the last.
And it was A-MAZ-ING, The most intensive 2 days crafting of my life but the most enjoyable too.
Day 1 was broken into 2 classes,
I got stuck sitting next to some right dodgy people
 my bezzy Gillian
mischief maker Alison, with Emma hiding in the background.
And deep in the process Sam
We did a layout in the morning.. This is mine
I had to make mine with no photo {I added it when I got home coz I totally forgot to print any}
Then in the afternoon we made a canvas
Finn was on top form
Here is my canvas..
Ania was kind enough to give some of us without pics a photo of her to use.. 
{I had brought an SD card but the printer was dead}
Group shoot...Everyone say cheese.
Day 2 was Getting Inky with Prima
We started in the morning by decorating a prima journal cover
front and back 
Then in the afternoon we did a couple of pages
The printer was working again so I managed to get a couple of pics. {thanks Don}
 This was a great learning curve, especially as it involves all those left over scraps.
I didn't get a proper chance to finish page 2 but it still looks ok and I now know what i'm doing thanks to the wonderful teachings of Ania. Seriously this lady is Uber talented and Uber sweet too.
After class a few of us kidnapped Ania for a meal
{OK i'm kidding, she came willingly although i'm not sure she knew what she was letting herself in for! lol
 I finally got to meet several online friends in person which was a real pleasure.
Along with many other friends old and new.
I'd like to thank everyone for making it an awesome weekend to remember.
I was very sad to say goodbye to everyone.
Roll on Ally Pally :)
Stay Inky
