Been Scrappin....

Well I have just returned from another awesome retreat run by Paula Cook and Michele Humphreys and i once again had a BLAST!!!! Those ladies are the most amazing people and I love catching upwith each and everyone of them!! Vik you Rok!!!!!! you make me smile...........even though not everything was "my cupof tea"!!! And your Vikki philosophies ...well lets just say you need to write a book!!!!!
So I travelled with thegorgeous Tracey and OMG I walked into her awesome store at Ballarat  (Imagination Factory!)and HAD to spend up big time!!!!!!!!! (LOL!!!)
So I conducted a blind scrap for the ladies  and I think they loved doing this so here is my Layout for the blind scrap. its a LO of Maya. Maya always tells me she loves me several times a day.....just out of the blue, anywhere any place and it melts my heart each and every time she says it.
The next was a sample I did for  a mini technique class. We played with paint, creating the cool cardstock paper as a featue instead of patterned paper, some distressing and just different ways to create layouts using a sketch as a guide.
While at the retreat I also created these LOs for various challenges...
Thisone is for the White with one challenge. This month the challenge is to add brown and vintage items.
This one is for Kraft it up. this month was a color combo challenge. The colors were orange, blue and black.

Then I did the first February sketch at Stuck Sketches.This is of Will and his best friend Archer.
I also completed the challenge for scrap the girls BUT I decided after completing the layout that it needed some misting and I got some on my photos...grrrrr. So will reprint photos tomorrow and post then!!
Heres another one I did...just cause!
Well now I have overloaded your brain...Ill go and hopefully be back tomorrow!!!
