Forget the forecast

For the whole of last week, the weather forecast for this area was snow.  Disruption to travel and freezing conditions.  But as all us Brits know, the weather forecasts are often wrong and I was doubly grateful on this occasion because not only was it the Enfield Scrapmates crop yesterday but Scrappi Sandi was going to be there.  I've been reading Sandi's blog  for years now but despite living within an hour of each other, we've never met - until yesterday!  I was so looking forward to meeting her properly and hoping so much that the weather wouldn't put paid to my plans.  I needn't have worried, forecast wrong again!
And here's the proof, a group shot of Denise, me and Sandi.  It was a great day and time flew by so fast.  I even managed to get both of the classes finished 

I love Ann's style of layouts, she manages to pack so much into a small amount of patterned paper and yet it is so effective.  It was great to meet up with so many blog friends like Denise, Karen, and the other Sandie.  
In amongst the crafty business there was much other discussion to be had.  Like an impending visiting from another couple of blog-friends from the other side of the Atlantic ...

We also get wrong weather forecasts here in the U.S. Most of the time I am happy they got it wrong. Nice that you got to meet Sandi and have so much fun.

We are due to get it tonight so I know the feeling. Mind you the sky was looking an ominous yellow colour as we drove home today. A snow day would be lovely :0)
