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!!

Scrap Our Stash

This is my layout for the challenge at Scrap Our was a TicTacToe and I chose the column of chipboard, arrows and twine.

The arrows are obvious..the chipboard is the 'Fun' title and the twine is across the bottom and also tied in the button.   I started the layout with a sketch by Brenshevia but I veered it didn't look much like it by the time I had finished!!  It was a 'FUN' to do layout!! LOL

Lots of time to enter...the challenge ends on the 29th October!
