Lots of layouts and some fun with friends

Well I haven't blogged for over a week. Not sure why I didn't come on here earlier in the week but the week has now gone.

Last Friday saw my team and I at a scrapbooking retreat, just us in this lovely cottage near Malvern. Hidelow House Tithe Barn

lovely setting and a lovely hot tub too. It was a little cramped so if we decide to go there again we will ask for the bigger place at least we will have more time to save.

I successfully did two paper and glue layouts while there
This one is from the Mystery Kit made up by Weety, thanks Weety it was a lovely kit the only thing I added was one button and a couple of the smaller flowers and the alpha for the title
Nana's boy

this one was a challenge not to have any card stock showing and use a sketch
Love You IRL

since I have come home I have not felt too good, just so tired and worn out. but I have to be fit for next week, going up to my daughter's for the birth of her second child.

I have managed to digi scrap though of course. It doesn't take too much effort to sit at the computer and produce a page I am pleased with.

this one for a ready steady scrap challenge which was to use brads, chipboard & acetate, all easily reproduced in digital time. I had to use blue somewhere and also to dry emboss, now that is not so easy but I managed it.

these next two were scraplifted from the new Spring issue of Scrapbook Trends

Wonderful layouts, Mary! I just got back from two scrappin' retreats and I'm not sure I was as productive as you! I'm envious!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
