Chocolate Quente 2014! Part 1 of 3

I finally get round to edit the 500+ photos I took from my trip to Porto - Portugal - to teach at Chocolate Quente, one of the best scrapbooking events in Europe. It is organised by the fabulous Patricia Villa-Boas. I was one of the tutors among the fabulous Teresa Collins, Beth Kingston, Jeff Filimoehala from Graphic 45 , and Patricia Villa-Boas herself. To be honest, I felt a bit out of place alongside those great talents! 

I arrived late the friday afternoon, greeted by a non-portuguese type of weather, but I still fell in love immediately with the beautiful city of Porto. We visited churches and the Palacio da Bolsa.

Spending time with Teresa, Beth, Jeff and Joao Pedro (Patricias husband) was fabulous and the hot chocolate was amazing!

The next morning we started the workshops. On the left you can see the project I taught using Basic Grey Indian Market papers and stickers.

The last class of the first day. Almost all spanish ladies! I loved all five groups they were all fantastic!

There was some shopping to be done...

Including Sizzix dies...

And I stole a few minutes from Manoli Picatua - a fellow paper crafter tutor from Spain - to captured this photos.

As I did with Nuno Raposeiro and Toñy Hernandez. I love happy faces!

Filipe, Patricia's son, took this photo of me while I was taking the photos. Yes, I was that happy!

And the official photos of the five tutors!

This says it all!
