All Packed Up and Ready to GOGO!!!

Ok so today is the day... the day Ive been waiting for since I booked my cancellation space in September!!! Its time for the March Scrapagogo Getaway at Theobolds Park and I'm super excited. Ive done all the prep work making sure I have a selcetion of photographs for each of the seven classes I'm taking. As well as creating my name badge and doing both the layout challenges. I had the near impossible task of packing!!! umm deciding what needs to be packed and what I can live without for one weekend was very difficult, especially when I realised that I don't have any storage bags to transport my stash lol but never fear I realise a couple of weeks ago so I had enough time to treat myself to a tote and a papermaina organiser bag with are both fantastic. so heres all the goodies Im taking with me..........

for some reason the smalles bag is my colothes!!!! in the navey spotted bag.
Happy Scrapping everyone

Year to go

I was just buzzing to have a go at challenge 3 for the scrapagogo getaway in only 12 Days time :-) however I was very stumped when i got home got out all my photographs and stated to think of a idea as for the challenge it set to use 8 diffident elements of scrapbook materials including 8 letters so I got a little suck with the title as that had to fit with a photograph........ anyway I found the photo I took of my wedding countdown app on my IPhone which made a screen shot of when it was exactly a year to go until our wedding so the title blended its self well to this photograph. I used robins egg blue and silver letting as this coincided with our wedding theme of Tiffany blue sparkles :-)it was only last month when this photograph was taken and a lot happened on that day i put a deposit on my dream wedding dress as well as having another viewing at our venue and lovely Sunday lunch with chris' parents to sample the cuisine, also I was surprised that my dad had paid some extra money towards the wedding and we have paid half now :-)

I used some Disney Princess sandylion sticker which I had in my stash to fit the fairytale feel of the page as well as layered ribbons and a stamped image of the love birds stamp form February scrapagogo kit.

These chipboard letters were all dressed up from DCWV in silver glitter.... Lush

Enjoy Katie xxxx

Ice-cream factory

I took some really great photos of me and my friend Lauren on Tuesday night after weight watchers we had our weekly treat and this week we had a ice-cream factory like we used to have a pizza hut before we stated to look too silly :-p I also decided to have a go at the scrapagogo pre-retreat challenge 2 :-) which was a sketch layout with 8 photos, 8 lines of journaling and 8 embellishments.

I used a teal piece of card stock for the background and a piece of doodlebug sweet treats paper which I brought ages ago and was saving for the right photographs :-)

I used doodlebug brads to embellish the page as well as some coloured adhesive gems and cut out circles and scallops from patented paper. Also I inked around the edge of the journaling to blend with the teal frame.

Enjoy Katie xxx

GoGoGetaway Badge Challenge

After days of thinking about what I wanted to do and staring at the template Ive come up with this I used a picture of me and my man while we were walking in Hylands park last April :-) and found some jellybean alphabet stickers which went well with the dotty doodlebug paper and ribbon. I really loved Debra Li's badge/desk tidy which she posted on the gogogang facebook page she used a spinning wheel style to showcase all the classes she was taking so I decided to have a pull down section of my badge listing my own class choices as i lose everything and it would be perfect on my cupcake craft apron :-)
I printed out the collage of class pictures that Nicola Kerriadge put onto the facebook page and cut out my class choices adding the numbers to which ones I was doing.
As well as typing out my class list and times...
I used a ribbon and brad to secure the badge when the information needed to be stored. hope you all like take care for now xxx Katie xxx
