The Papeterie set up a video camera to film the demos from the day (I made 20 cards that were then raffled off for their charity). If you are interested in getting one of the DVD's, please contact Charlotte at The Papeterie in Aberdeen (ph. 01224 802337). The cost is £6 with the proceeds going to their charity called Archway.
After the demo, I met a few ladies that are regulars on my blog. This is "Fluffy Cat" (under my left arm)and "Diane and Chipps" (under my right arm)(at least these are the names that I know them by! I really enjoyed meeting some of the people that I see around the blog, it is great fun to finally put faces with the names! Charlotte and her staff put together a great big hamper filled with amazing Scottish sweets and biscuits (she knew that I have a real sweet tooth!) I am not sure who Aunt Tilly was, but she makes the best fudge I have ever had. It didn't last the trip!
I really want to thank all of the people that came to the demo and joined in for the raffle as we raised a fair bit of money and put The Papeterie over their goal. The day was scorching hot and the room had glass windows all the way around it so it really heated up! Unfortunately with a building that is over a hundred years old, there was no air conditioning, but everyone was so good humoured about it. Charlotte has asked me back for next year so hopefully we can turn it into a real event with demos and workshops next time! I loved my visit there and there is still more that I would like to see up that way as well!
One of the buildings in Edinburgh. Look at that sky, it looks like a painting!
Hadrian's Wall. This was one of the longest sections of the wall and the countryside was so pretty around there.
And lastly, a stop at The Angel Of The North statue in Gateshead, outside of Newcastle. I have wanted to see this for ages so we included it in the route we took home on the last day. There I am next to it, can you see?
I took so many pics of the scenery as it was gorgeous! I can't understand why everyone always says that the Scottish weather is bad! We didn't have a drop of rain the entire week and temperatures were above 20 degress C every day! LOL Yes, I do know, I lucked out, it was so pretty the whole way there and back. I will fondly remember my week in July in Scotland!
By the way, tomorrow I'll post a sneak peek for my show on Sunday so don't forget to check back!
All for now, Sue x
