Before I resume my tale a quick apology, my website had to move home unexpectedly over the last couple of days, it meant the scheduled posts didn’t happen and bizarrely a post from April was sent out on the google reader today……..
I hope that it is all sorted now and normal service has been resumed.
So we got up bright and early on Friday morning, breakfast was amazing, in fact it was rather tricky deciding what to eat. Lovely coffee, fresh fruit platter and then my favourite pancakes, bacon and maple syrup, Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmmm.
Now we knew we where going to the castle but of course this is Stampin’ Up! world and nothing is ever as it seems. We walked a little way and along came two 100 year old trams that usually live in a museum. We were taken on a tour of the city before we stopped at the Castle.
Ivana was our guide, she had a tough job keeping us all on time and together but somehow she managed it. Her knowledge was incredible as was every building.
The views from the castle if anything were even more spectacular.
After the most delicious lunch in a restaurant that had crystal grapes hanging from the ceiling we spent some time sightseeing and shopping. Now I have to say at this point we got seriously lost……….We knew we needed to get back to the river, shame we ended up 4 bridges the wrong way!
A rest, wash and brush up and off to our Stampin’ Pyjama party !
First up was swapping, I am going to do a separate post about the swaps, they were incredible, the best swaps I have ever seen. So many ideas from so many talented women, I feel very blessed.
The we entered the stamping room, now I am surprised you didn’t hear the screams from here on each chair was a personalised apron, you will see me wearing it at every event from now on ! The screams just got louder as we realised on the table was a bag of goodies for us too!
I can’t show you what was in the bag or the projects we made as they are using new goodies from the October 2011 catalogue, I love them and you will too!
I did manage to sneak in a picture with the lovely Shelli.
More adventures soon!
