Crafty break over....





Back home this afternoon after a week caravanning and crafting with Jan and her husband. We had a plan of what we would be working on but after a visit to a local craft store ( funny how it just happens to be near where we stay) we changed plans to something entirely different so I'm sorry Viv, but the Gothic Arches never got finished (or even started) The pictures are of a wooden box that I had taken with me,one for each of to alter, it's covered with a(very expensive) paper napkin (from Norway), collaged with printed images and mod podged, distress ink was added around the edges and a gold line to finish off.
The other picture is Jan and I taken this morning just before we left for home.

You obviously choose your holiday locations with craft supplies in mind! The box is beautiful and that's a lovely photo of you and Jan. Sounds like a great weekend.
