All the ladies attending the weekend were asked to bring along a project for each person. Over the next few days I will show you some of the finished items In no particular order. Most of the ladies brought multiple kits and ideas so we were kept very busy on Saturday and Sunday.

We made a very cute little handbag, a buckle card and very cute and clever paper clip angels
