Welcome to the t'pouch...

My post this week at The Scrappy Tree :)

Welcome to your weekend and the world of the t'pouch!  Last weekend I was lucky enough not only to attend a great class at the Stamp Attic with Hels Sheridan, but I also got to spend time with Stamp Attic owner Wendy.  What a lovely weekend! Lots of chat, plenty of coffee, and some inking to boot; who could ask for more!
As before I made cakes to take with me to the workshop, and once again I forgot to take pics LOL but I took a pic of the raspberry brownies before they ever left the baking tin (or the house!) and here they are...
I can't even tell you how gorgeous and gooey these were, I shall be making them again!  I also made a banana marble cake, but to be honest those brownies, oh the brownies!!

So I travelled up on Saturday afternoon and spent the evening with Wendy and her family, which was wonderful :) we ate, we chatted, we got vocal at the telly while The Voice and BGT were on: great fun!!  And I visited Wendy's craft room which is truly a cave of wonders!  Wendy's having a little revamp at the moment so no pics LOL

On Sunday we went to the Stamp Attic and met with Hels and the other ladies (and gent!) taking the workshop, charged ourselves up with plenty of coffee, cake and other goodies, and proceeded to ink and glue like our lives depended on it!

This was a tag class with a difference; tags on tags on tags in a pouch!  You can see Hels' blog post here for more information on how we made and embellished the tags and t'pouch (tag pouch), and Wendy has also blogged here with pics of all the tags made in class :)  And here's my effort!

Lately I am totally obsessed with tags and inking, so this class was right up my street!  (see, I did say on Friday I'd be right back on the tags after that card post LOL).  Was also really feeling the sunshiney colours this weekend, and at the time I didn't realise it but this is also Hels' Sunday stamper theme so it must be getting to that time of year :)

On a different note, in case you missed Julie's post last week you can see it hereit's important to us to make sure we can support causes that are near to our hearts.  We'd love to hear your comments :)

Happy scrapping!
