The weekend has to be the most inspiring experience I have ever had- wow what a talented group of girlies we had there, I did a total of 7 layouts which is a 1st for me (I am a slow scrapper!) The atmosphere was amazing and so fun !!! the tables were just covered with scrapping and chocolate the whole weekend!!!! I cant wait to do it again!! Th ehostel reminded me of a cottage from a horror film as it was set in a forest and was beautiful but was scary having to go to the loo (in a seperate block ) in the dark!! I scrapped til gone 3 on the first night- I was so tired the next night I went to bed about 11, but we were all up by 9 scrapping again!!!!!!
I can only show you 4 of my layouts atm , but will show the others when I can!!
Anyone else think this is soooooooo bare for me ?? I was being inspired by soem of the girls and decided to go for the minimal look - there is WHITE SPACE -lots of white space!! I really loved puckering up the fabric for this one of James- I have even used clip on earings on this one!!!!!! SJ took a fab pic of me which I am now using as my profile pic!!! More coming soon - as well as some exciting news about my kits!!!!!

Yesterday Jayne came to visit with her daughter Keira. We had great fun with the 2 of them playing with playdoh!! (and me and Jayne too!!!) But we didnt expect Evan to do this!! - Evan was playing with Keira upstairs with some beads (hama beads to iron!!) Evan walked down the stairs mumbleing something and the he showed me the bead that was stuck up his nose!! Poor little thing just wanted it out and kept poking his finger up his nose pushing the bead further!! So Jayne held his hands and I got some tweesers!! - It didnt work !! So we had to teach him to blow his nose. And after 3 hard blows the bead flew out shooting my leg which Evan thought was hilarious!!!! He was fine through the whole thing and actually thought it was funny!!! Well just a typical afternoon in my house !!! Jayne couldnt have realised what she was in for !!!
So the kit - I have been working on!!! Here are a couple of sneek peeks for you, as I said before the kit is a double project kit with 2 projects to work on !!!
This one is a mini book to make an A-Z of me and the other is
a layout/ home decor (its up to you to decide which) more pics soon but I do have to say these papers are LUSH!!!!! I hope you like polka dots!!! Right I have to get ready to get up the school for the 3rd time today!!!
