Had to take a photo to prove I did actually make it down to the beach!
So calm and peaceful
Wyatt, lovin' his Easter haul!
Really love this line from Pink Paislee. There is hidden jounalling that explains that my youngest will only eat pickles when we tell him we found one with his name on it.
I won a collection pack of papers from MME (I did a high kick in pj bottoms to win this!! lol) I couldn't wait to use it to do a layout of my friend's daughter, Oceane.
Holden, future Clark Kent. I used all stickers on this except for the background and one small strip of paper.
My friend took this photo of Wyatt and I love it. I was inspired by a layout from an '09 Creating Keepsakes page.
More Pink Paislee. I made the acordian fold flowers and they were the hit of the table. Have to do a Friendzy Friday on these I guess!
Joanne has started creating sketches and I really loved the one we all had to use for a little friendly competition at the retreat.
For this one I used some Fancy Pants 'rusted sun' papers which is a very beachy theme. Just goes to show that you can use themed papers beyond what they are intended for. (gotta love double-sided paper!)
There is a lot of prep work that goes in to making these retreats smooth and enjoyable. By the look of all the smiling ladies at the retreat I'd say it was a huge success. I am signed up for the Fall retreat and cannot wait for it to come. Better get snapping lots of photos!
