Listen very carefully.........

......I will say this only once!!!

Spring cleaning can be fun!!!
(But only when enjoyed in the company of the fabulous Gogo girls)

Yesterday was the Spring Clean day event and as well as cards and a card organiser we made these cute little LO's.
I played with some new techniques and scrapped in styles not usually mine, but the day was extremely enjoyable and the other ladies whom I met and chatted with were enormous fun!
I would recommend anyone to go go!

It was really enjoyable to just sit and chat and scrap - not something I normally do as I am singing along to music on my own generally, but it was also nice to not have to spend ages shuffling through my stash trying to find matching embellies etc. Everything was right there and I could sit and get on with it almost without thinking!
Today was back to my normal shuffling through stuff as I have made another couple of pages to share later!

Sadly my journey home was not as pleasant as the rest of my trip. Two serious car crashes meant road closures in London and a HUGE detour and extra hour and a half added to my journey! I was not a happy bunny as I was tired and hungry and just wanted to get home to snuggle the ratties!

When I did eventually arrive I was greeted with lots of snuffling and squeaks and hugs ratty-styley (they only have short arms and really cold feet), but they were lovely and the boys didn't seem to mind being left alone for a night. I treated them to toast corners and some grapes and we snuggled for an hour or so before bedtime!

I have been good and not gone to Ally Pally today - I spent a fair amount in the Gogo shop yesterday. But as I have had a mini adventure and made some new chums I feel I have made good use of my weekend for once! I can always go to the next one?
Hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed the lovely sun?

Your weekend sounds great, Sarah, How lovely just to be able to sit and scrap. A real luxury and the LO's you've created are stunning. I especially like the Secret garden, the dark background works brilliantly with that gorgeous photo.
Glad you got home safely in the end.
