ScrapBoutique Cybercrop

I decided to join in with the ScrapBoutique CC this weekend as I was looking for some challenges. I have completed two so far but can only upload one here as the other is also my DT submission for the next Scrap That Poetry challenge.

Can you hear the song commercial "Sunshine, lollipops ..... rainbows ...." ? I don't know the words but that was the general inspiration, with a few extra criteria, for this LO! I used the very colourful Echo Park - 'Life Is Good' range. Nice!!!!

PS: The frog in Holly's mouth is not real!!

A Little Bit of Vintage

I bought a beautiful little vintage kit from Carol (Honeywine's) Etsy Shop - 'tatteredinspirations' and used it to create thisLO.

The picture is my mum when she was 18 months old. This is my first vintage LO ever. I would love to explore this style more!

Some Scrapping "aHappening" !!!

How much do I just love going to the Little Scrapbook Retreat every year. It is a delightful retreat with lots of fantastic ladies, lots of fun and just a great break away from the every day! I always come home wishing I was still there! I was so glad meet my lovely friend DebiJ finally and had the privelege of her company for another week on my holiday to Coffs!

Here are some the creations from the classes at the retreat. I loved them all.

The very talented Belinda Comerford has us rolling our own paper roses for this LO using the divine Sassafrass Lass 'Indie Girl' range. I just worked out that I have rolled my roses inside out - but I like them that way!! We also created a square card - but I forgot to photograph it!

The equally talented Kerryn Leworthy taught a class including the creation of two wonderful LOs using the Basic Grey "Olivia" range. I am yet to finish the second LO.

We were then treated to this OTP class by Sherry Mendoza - Technical Editor of Scrapbooking Memories. It is a two sided calendar that you write all of the birthdays and anniversaries you don't want to forget on it! I have mine hanging in the living area of my home where I walk past it every day. I still have to fill it in. I actually don't want to write on it, it is so nice but I will eventually get over that I'm sure!

Here are some cards I created using the leftovers from Belle's class. I just love the Indie Girl range!

Thanks for looking. I have had a lovely two weeks off work to create and relax, but it all comes to an end tomorrow and I am back to it!
