Weekend Retreat

I have had a lovely weekend away, with like minded people from UKScrappers we have been in a lovely big room with plenty of space around up we had a table each to spread out on so no need to keep having to search for stash.
We had 7 classes/challenges altogether and I managed to do 6 of them, I hope to do the other one, a minibook in a box, at some time soon.
Going picture heavy now as I want to put all the pages I have produced.
The first class was Marvellous Mask-erade in which we could and did get messy spraying misty paint over a mask or two to make our background paper
Rudi (IRL)

in this one we used part of the mask to cut cardstock to add as embellishments
Autumn Splendour (ASDA carpark)

Next was the minibook in a box (the one I haven't as yet done)

Saturday we did Good Times a lovely 6x12 format on an easel with a stunning flower and easel trim made from a beer or coke can
Mittens (on an easel)
Mittens (embellishment)

then a teeny tiny envelope album
Bristol Zoo Minibook

Sketch challenge
Hammans Clan

then on Sunday a beautiful class to create a stamped border by masking a circle or oval and stamping around so that when you removed the mask you were left with a frame.
Emeline Blanche (IRL)

and finally a speed scrap for this one we were given instruction in 6 parts at 10 minute intervals
Ben & Daddy

We had plenty of spare time too to get on with other projects and I managed to finish off one I had started some time ago
Swing Your Partner

I didn't sleep all that well the first night and finally gave up trying to get back to sleep at 5.00 so sat in bed and did a digi page
It's a set up

Thank you for being patient with me and ploughing through all these

Wow you were certainly busy Mary - some beautiful layout - as always! And nice to some real life work from you! Not that I have room to talk! ;-)

All lovely Mary. I love the pale coloured alpha you used on the title on the vintage one.

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
