Thanks so much

For your lovely messages of support after yesterdays dizzy spell and fall. Thankfully today has been fine which I am seriously glad about as it was the ATC meet in Skipton I was hosting.
We have had a fantastic day meeting old friends from the docrafts forum and sharing ideas, talents and of course atcs. I really must give huge thanks to Michelle for demonstrating encaustic wax, Liz for fabulous things with a loo roll, Emma for the kinetic atcs, Katy for the cusie arty demo and Joyce for the fab acetate atc demo. Everyone was kept busy and time just flew!
We have raised in excess of £100 I know but am not sure about the final figure. The raffle was very well supported with everyone attending bringing a prize but also Paper collections and embossing powders and a mini book from the fabulous Dyan Reavely shop here Vouchers, mini books and cards from the Stampmans team shop here And the Amazingly talented Mr Tim Holtz for a fabulous tag won by Karen (Flowers) on the docraft forum.
These ladies travelled from all over to chat, swap and learn new techniques whilst also raisimg money for a great cause. All the money goes to the place I work, The Ghyll, Children's Resource Centre in Skipton. We have been raising money to revamp the outdoor area making it more friendly and appealing to the learning disabled young people who use this repite service. We plan not only to have play equipment but raised flower beds and gardening areas that the young people can get involved with.
So massive thanks to all who came, gave, shared and had fun to help with raising this money. ((((((((applause)))))))))
