I have been on my second scrapping retreat!!!!

Oh wow did I learn alot on this retreat!!! I had a huge space to scrap in and I just went for it... Took way too much with me but that is what happens when I am still learning what to take, but then again if I didn't take it would you believe that would be the first thing that I need!!! I had the time of my life sleeping dormitory style like in my school days, dealing with millipeads yik! Plus meeting lots of new friends. Can't wait to attend this retreat again over the course of the coming year as it is rather close to home no flying this time unless low flying is involved...hahaha...

I completed nine layouts over the two days which for me is a lot as I normally am lucky to get three done here at home but then again those two days were no interruptions from the little ones in this house!

The first layout I completed at retreat...this page was for a challenge of spritz and sparkle - well isn't that just me??? I used PinkPaislee Mist.a.bles papers and hit is with three dylysion inks then I used a Heidi Swapp banner and title Sparkle and Shine using the same dylusion inks. Also three flowers inked too plus added bling and a Heidi Swapp sparkle heart and my page is complete. Will add journaling later.

The second layout that I created pretty quickly - photo taken last christmas - it is special when as a family we can decorate the tree together. I painted the background with Luminarte paints and used my spellbinders to frame the photo.

And lastly this one was completed for the White With One challenge site... The challenge was White with Greens + Chevron... I found the biggest chevron which was Heidi Swapp Resist paper and spritz it!! Used my new Whimsy Farm Twine, and I also changed the colour of the white Tin embellishment in the top left corner with copies. Honestly I got bogged down on the layout and literally threw it aside over night. When i got up the next morning looked at the layout that I had literally chucked aside I was happy where everything was sitting so stuck it down!

So until our crazy week slows down and I can find my desk under all the skating costumes and scrap crap that I threw on there from retreat, I can create some more and finish off projects to show you! 

Have a lovely week and find the positive in everyday and tell those you love That you Love them!
