I had the utter joy this Saturday to meet up with some dear blog friends.
Some of these ladies I had followed for a few months. Others have known me since I was 17.
I spent the day catching up with project life, completing a paper scrapbook challenge which was a challenge in itself seeing as I am not au fait with paper anymore! I also drank copious amounts of tea and chatted and chatted.
There is something magical about meeting up with people you feel you know so well online.
They were just as I imagined in real life. In the middle of photo shoot madness I managed to capture a few indiviudal shots with some of the other bloggers there.
The dear Alexa. We sat next to each other all day and had the most wonderful talks about digital scrapbooking, about creating a clean style and about the pros and cons of photo books. She is an inspiration.
Jo and I have been meaning to meet up for many years. We finally got the chance this weekend. What a fun and bubbly personality she is- even if she did have to duck for a photo owing to the height difference!
Lizzie felt like my second mum whilst I was there for the day! What a caring soul she is. Seeing her book binding in person was amazing. She is talented for sure!
Finally the sweet Jackie. I so enjoyed seeing her photos and layouts in person and again someone I feel I have known for years and who it was so wonderful to finally hug!
We got a few fun group shots and tried to emulate the style of Miss Smith and get a 'from the ground' shot. I may need a bit more practice!
The internet can sometimes be scary but in my experience it is more often than not magical.
As Deb often says, "blog friends are the best".
Thank you Jemma for all you did to organise the weekend. I so enjoyed my day with you all.
