Becky Fleck Workshop

A BIG thank you to one and all , especially to our most loyal customers who attended our first event...we are just over the moon that it was a huge success!!!
All the seats for Becky Fleck's workshop were quickly taken up within a few days of registration opening and we needed an additional afternoon class to accomodate more. Everyone loved their finished layouts and we want to thank Ms Becky Fleck for a wonderful and amazing workshop she prepared for us all and and all the scrapbooking techniques she shared in conversation with many of us !!!

Here are some photos of the fun and that we had on Becky's Class, if you weren't able to join us!

:: Saturday Class

Becky signing her popular book (the hottest reading material at the moment) which we sold out again and didn't even last for Sunday's class.

With all the serious scrapping done... it was time for a break ... sweet and yummy treats from our very own Sweet Lane ...

Delicious, sweet cakes freshly baked from Sweet Lane kitchen ... yummmm! Thanks to our chef for preparing and baking these with so much love!

And with everyone's tummies filled, it was time to get back to class for the second layout.

Becky discussing a variety of scrapbook design related issues ...

Paper Lane princesses, Alia and Maryam with Becky... even our kids were so excited to meet the Pagemap Queen!!!

:: Sunday Class

We saw lots of new faces and many who have traveled hours from Abu Dhabi and Oman to be there.

Another set of freshly baked cakes from our in-house cake shop!

Becky and some ladies having a serious and interesting conversation , discussing how delicious the Sweet Lane cakes are . . . I suspect... ; )

The ladies expressed that Sweet Lane cakes not only looked good but tasted good as well!!

Thanks to our chef and his assistants for these yummy sweets, it sustained us through the day when the hunger pangs hit!!!

Dalya and our lovely girls, all smiles even after a long hard week preparing for this event...

And huge thanks to my dh who helped me and Dalya to make this event a reality, he arranged everything from their arrival at the airport to their hotel accomodation and to newspaper advertisement...thanks Baba!

Judging from the smiles on their faces, it's safe to say they all have an amazing time with Becky .

I'll have this one of Becky, Dalya and I for posterity's sake . . . I am so gonna scrap this!

Dalya and I would like to thank all who made this event special with your presence, we really hope you had as much fun if not more fun than we had organizing this event and really had a fabulous time!!! Thanks so much for taking time off your busy schedules to show up and give Becky a truly warm Dubai welcome at Paper Lane!!!

And so 'till our next event!
