Have been absent for the past week and have a few challenges to share which I managed to create at the Wicked Princess Retreat on the weekend. Had an amazing time and met so many wonderful ladies. Krissy did the most awesome job organising her 1st retreat.. everything was just perfect and she's just the most beautiful person.. such a sweetie. Was so happy to finally meet Karen Grose who is on the Bird Is The Word DT with me, what a gorgeous girl!! Has some fabulous conversations and she & Tam had me in stitches over the weekend. Some of the other girls I also had the pleasure to meet in person and see their gorgeous creations up close were Lauren Bell who is on the KIU CT with me, Anne Patterson who's work I admire on Scrapmatts, Lisa K, and Barb Turner. I don't think there was much sleep had by all and I am so dreading seeing what some of the pics taken of me will look like. My mojo wasn't really flowing, so I didn't create as many LO's as I would have liked and there were so many lovely ladies to chat with, that I kept getting distracted. Can't wait to attend Krissy's next retreat.. should be a pro the 2nd time around.
Stuck Sketches 15 May
This was one of the LO's I created at the retreat for Stuck Sketches. Decided to go for a bit of grunge on this one. Used some very old FP pp for the background which I masked with a Prima mask and some Tim Holtz ink then overlayed with some sapphire glimmermist. Distressed, inked and punched the side strips using 7 Gypsies, WRMK & Scrap Within Reach pp's. Added a few rubons and some hessian bits and also some Tim Holz tape which I purchased from Krissy on the weekend which I absolutely adore.
Show Us Your Stuff - May Sketch
Another LO created on the weekend for SUYS. Found this very old pic of Brittany which I just adore and used some gorgeous Girls Paperie pp's and a felt frame to accent the photo. Created the little banner from the paper using a circle punch, twine and buttons. Just LOVE these new Prima tulle flowers, and had to add one on my LO as it was just the perfect finishing touch. The adorable felt heart I purchased from Tracy at My2Angels they come in a pack of 4, she also has the felt frames in black.
