Me again

I got some really fab papers a couple of weeks ago, they are really bright and colourful and include images of those russian dolls that slot inside each other.Anyway,I have used one if the flowery ones and some lacy ribbon and a butterfly on a page with one of my fave photos from the shoot.


Scrappy Evening and Alice In Wonderland

Whilst hopping around on the net tonight I came across this - looks very interesting!

Himself and our eldest son have gone to see AC/DC again this evening and as the other two are not in, I decided to have a scrappy evening.I got some 'Webster' pages the other week and had an idea to do a page with them and the Topiary photos.


A GoGo Paper Bag Book

I am not a lover of green as anyone who knows me knows,but in the shop at the retreat I absolutely loved the vibrant limey citrus green they had there.So of course I had to get some of the bits and have made a little paper bag mini book including some of the photos from the weekend.Some of the photos are a bit fuzzy -sorry bout that !..


CJ is a genius

When I went to the GoGo retreat recently I had (as did many others) a photoshoot again with CJ at Feelgoodphotos She did a wonderful job again as last year and I was very pleased with them again.

Terriffic Topiary

Isn't it amazing? I have lived in this area for 29 years and never knew that at the local bowling green there are such terriffic topiary examples.
My dad mentioned that he had wandered round there the other day and said how nice it was so one evening I walked down there with camera in hand and found some beautifully kept gardens.There was the Owl and the Pussycat, a train, some kings and a teapot. Might have to scrap these soon!....


Been Cropping

It was the monthly Craftystash crop today which was spent in the company of three good friends.There were two pages to do today,one of which was an 'Interactive' which I haven't quite finished yet as I need to find some photos of the boys when they were younger,and the other which was 'summer' themed.
I'm still needing to finish a page from the retreat last weekend which came and went so quickly.It was great to catch up with my friend Hilary again.


Shimelle's GoGo Class

Here is the book that we did in Shimelle's class on Saturday. It's finished but I haven't done the stitching on the pages round the edges. I don't have a sewing machine but my good friend Deb has offered to let me use hers (hope she realises what a naff sewer I am !).So will have to post pics here without the stitching.


More GoGo pics

Here are a couple more pics from the Getaway- the doodled frame on the white background was a make and take by SJ which I loved, I then did another version - and SJ very kindly doodled a flower on the background for me which I duly painted - loved the idea of these frames, very simple but very versatile and effective.


GoGo Getaway

Well I am back from a truly amazing weekend of seeing friends and making new ones and generally having a fun time at the Scrapagogo retreat.It was great to have a weekend of just having food put in front of me - no washing up, no cooking and total scrapping.
I loved all the classes and managed to get quite a few layouts done.
This one was by Fiona
There were two layouts for this class but I havent finished the second one yet.
The next one was a gorgeous 8x8 book class with Shimelle- I havent photographed it yet.

Then we did a great class with

Jane also spent some time with me starting out on art journaling which I loved - some of her stuff is amazing and I loved what I did, I'm inspired to carry on and do some more now.

Then it was a workshop on Sunday again with Jane Dean which I also really enjoyed.
I think that's all for now, will post some more pics tomorrow.
