ProzArt - a wonderful event

Are you wondering what I was doing the last few days? Well... I've been having fun with such sweet ladies during an event that happened in Czempin, a small town in Poland. The event was fantastic. Words can't really describe the atmosphere there. I enjoyed it very much!
Va intrebati ce am facut in ultimele zile? Ultimele zile le-am petrecut cu niste doamne minunate la o intalnire ce a avut loc in Czempin, un mic orasel din Polonia. Intalnireea a fost minunata. Cuvintele nu pot descrie cu adevarat atmosfera de acolo. Mi-a placut la nebunie!
It was a 4 day scrapbook event organized by sweet Ewa, smiley Eliza and fantastic grunge teacher Finn. Let me tell you, they are all fantastic ladies with such a dedication and such attention to details! 
A fost o intalnire de scrapbooking de 4 zile organizata de simpatica Ewa  zambitoarea Eliza  si fantastica profesoara de grunge Finn.  Si lasati-ma sa va spun ca sunt niste fete fantastice, dedicate in tot ceea ce fac si cu mare atentie la detalii! 
During this 4 days we had 3 classes, 1 photosession with a great local photographer Marcin, lots of creative challenges and lots of time for ourselves. It was the perfect long weekend!
In aceste 4 zile am avut 3 cursuri, o sesiune foto cu un foarte bun fotograf local Marcin, multe provocari creative si mult timp pentru noi. A fost weekendul perfect!
Unfortunately you will have to wait a little bit for the photos from this event because I didn't had my camera with me and also I will be sharing the layouts that we made in other posts. Today I will share some bits and pieces from ProzArt.
Din pacate va trebui sa asteptati putin pentru fotografiile din acest minunat weekend intrucat nu am avut aparatul foto. De asemenea voi posta layout-urile in alte posturi. Azi voi impartasi cate ceva de pe la ProzArt.
Let's begin with day one. I arrived there on thursday evening. Finn as kind enough to peek up the international guests from Poznan so I got to meet the international girls during the ride from Poznan to Czempin. The weather was fantastic. The venue was very nice. The welcome that we got was unbelievable. Prima flowers were waiting for us on the beds. What an excitement! During dinner I got to meet the other polish participants. After that the organization team gave us unique presents. Eliza was so sweet to prepare us personalized envelopes. Each envelope with vintage goodies was labeled with our name on it and with an distinct message. Here is mine:
Sa incepem cu prima zi. Am ajuns acolo joi dupa-masa. Finn fost draguta si a asteptat in Poznan echipa internationala asa ca pe fetele din alte tari decat Polonia le-am cunoscut in timpul calatoriei dintre Poznan si Czempin. Vremea a fost minunata, iar locul de cazare foarte frumos. Primirea de care am avut parte a fost minunata. Flori Prima ne asteptau pe fiecare pat. Cat entuziasm! In timpul cinei am facut cunostinta si cu participantele poloneze. Apoi, organizatoarele ne-au cadorisit pe fiecare cu cadouri unice. Eliza a fost atat de draguta incat ne-a pregatit la fiecare plicuri personalizate pe care era scris numele nostru impreuna cu un mesaj distinct. Uitati aici plicul meu:
They made me feel so special!
M-au facut sa ma simt speciala!
The evening ended with arranging the craft space and sharing impressions. And then a much deserved sleep.
Seara s-a incheiat cu aranjarea locului de mesterit si impartasirea impresiilor. Si apoi un bine meritat somn.
Day two began with a big breakfast. And of course, surprises were waiting for us on the table. There where nice packs with sweet messages and of course Prima flowers. My message was saying I should relax ;) so I did. The whole day was planned for photo shoots with Marcin. Each of us got to stay 30 minutes face to face with the photographer. And of course everybody loved that moment. In the meantime the girls challenged us to look for tags with challenges and make projects from each of the tag we found. I had so much fun collecting tags! 
Ziua doi a inceput cu un mic dejun mare. Si bineinteles, surprizele ne asteptau pe masa. La fiecare loc erau pachetele deagute cu mesaje incurajatoare si bineinteles flori Prima. Mesajul meu imi recomanda sa ma relaxez ;) asa ca asta am si facut. Toata ziua a fost planificata cu sedinte foto cu Marcin. Fiecare din noi a avut 30 de minute fata in fata cu fotograful. Si bineinteles tuturor le-a placut momentul. Intre timp fetele ne-au provocat sa cautam prin curte biletele cu provocari si sa facem cate un proiect pentru fiecare biletel gasit. Mi-a placut foarte mult sa colectez biletelele!

I got to do 6 challenged and because of this I won a prize at the end of the day. I was super excited. Then, from all the projects that we did the jury had to peek the best 8 and I was so happy to see that one of them was mine! And the last big challenge of the day was to work in teams of 4 and make a collage. I was in the same team with Linda, Minna and Elina and we created this collage. The girls decided that I should keep the collage and I am soo happy for that! We won the 3rd place! Wohoo!
Am reusit sa fac 6 proiecte si din aceasta cauza am castigat un premiu la finalul zilei. Am fost foarte entuziasmata! Apoi, din toate proiectele juriul a ales cele mai bune 8 proiecte si am fost foarte fericita sa vad ca unul din ele era al meu! Si marea provocare a zilei a fost sa lucram in echipe de cate 4 si sa facem un colaj. In echipa cu mine au fost Linda  Minna  si Elina  i am creat acest colaj. La final fetele au decis ca eu sa pastrez colajul! Si am castigat locul 3! Woohoo!

Day three was full of workshops. First we had the workshop with Karola and after that with Finnabair. They both are such talented ladies! It was so great to meet them! In the evening the surprise was the bonfire! We got to fry sausages over the bonfire and eat outside. Was such a wonderful time!
Ziua a treia a fost plina de cursuri. Primul curs l-am avut cu Karola iar urmatorul a fost cu Finnabair. Sunt niste fete atat de talentate! Mi-a parut bine sa le cunosc! Seara am avut parte de o surpriza: foc de tabara! Ne-am preparat singure cina deasupra focului si am mancat afara. A fost un timp minunat!
Day four was the last day of the event. In the morning we had an workshop with Kasia and after the lunch we said goodbye and went back to Poznan from where we returned at our homes. On the way back I got to read all the messages that the girls left for me in my "mailbox". Thank you girls!
Ziua a patra a fost ultima zi a evenimentului. De dimineata am avut curs cu Kasia iar imediat dupa pranz am fost nevoite sa ne zicem la revedere si sa plecam inapoi la Poznan de unde fiecare s-a intors acasa. Pe drumul de intoarcere am citit mesajele pe care fetele mi le-au lasat in "cutiuta postala". Multumesc fetelor!
And this was the mail box:
Si aceasta a fost cutia postala:

It was such a great event! Can't wait for next year already! What we did in classes you will find out in the next days!
A fost un eveniment asa de reusit incat abea astept pe urmatorul! Ce am facut la cursuri veti afla in urmatoarele zile.

Happy crafting!
Spor la creat!
