ScrapaGoGo Retreat

ScrapaGoGo retreat number 11 was this last weekend!!

Here are a few of the class layouts that I succeeded in finishing!!!

This was a Sam Ball class.....using ornamental pegs and lots of 'fussy' cutting!!!

This was an Eileen Webdale class.....hand decorated buttons and lots of 'fussy' cutting!!!

This one was Rebekah Brumby class.....moving spiders!!  Love it!!!!

This class was Sheena Rowlands.... paper press embellishments...using toilet paper!!! Love it!!!!!!  Will definitely do this again but must use Andrex!!!

Another class with Rebekah Brumby....pop-up people!!  Didn't actually do the pop-up as my pages never come out of my albums.....and I don't like cutting holes in the protectors....but loved it as just a layout!!

I enjoyed all the classes...loved all the papers etc that we used and will probably try some of the techniques again!!!  Especially the toilet paper one!!!  LOL
Lots of fun at the retreat...looking forward to the next one now in March 2014!!!!!!!

Thank you for visiting!!

I have never done a mixed media canvas thought I would start small!!!  Might do a bigger one now....really had fun with this and got messy!!!

I am entering it into the challenge at Embellish Me Happy.
The requirement was 'Doing It Yourself'....and I think I did that!! LOL

The Scrappy Friends Challenges

This is my layout for the Scrappy Friends challenges....

Every month they do a challenge each and if you incorporate all of them you get entered into another 4 chances to win with one layout!!!

For August this is Brenda's sketch....
Rochelle required a 'Travel' theme...

Kristi's recipe was....wood, stripes and mixed alphas.

I followed the sketch, and it is definitely travel related as Alex and Cassie were probably travelling at 30,000ft!!! The wooden embellishments are the 'vacation' tag, 'camera' tag and the pennant with the date...I think the stripes and alpha are obvious!!! LOL
