the photo in the previous post that is....
Nik challenged me at our scrap retreat to create a layout with no patterned paper. I went to use some Basic Grey tags & wasn't allowed to use them either!! - if they are patterned paper why are they called tags?
Anyway I like what resulted from the challenge :-)
The retreat was fantastic - hot - but heaps of fun with many laughs! A few early mornings - like to bed early in the morning & up only a little later - but 8am is a sleep in for a mum! I got 15 layouts completed which was pretty good - but Louise got 23 pages done (of some paper bag albums) - what an amazing effort. Have the total number of pages coming which I'll post on the retreat blog - when I get around to it! The retreat was sooo good we are adding a Friday onto the next one for those who can get away for an extra day.
The make & takes wen't down really well. They were sponsored by the Scrapbook Outlet & Scrapbook Essentials - both these stores also gave us bits for goodie bags & prizes too. Our next one is at the end of July.
A few Scrapbook Outlet comps on the go at the moment....
