To have and to hold

This was also a sketch challenge this time the page needed to include some products from the American crafts- lucky Charm range from Dear Lizzy. If you liked the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan range then your love this paper. This was my favourite range on sale in the GoGo shop at the getaway and I managed to pick up a lovely Jar Stamp so I can recreate my own jars filled with all sorts of paper treats :-). But for this layout I cut the jar saying love you to the stars and back! Which was fitting for this photograph of me and Chris relaxing after the wedding ceremony :-)

I also used some very lovely Mr and Mrs washie tape from east of India which I picked up from my local scrapbook supply shop sugar and spice based at Barleylands Billericay perfect.

Cherish the moment

This was one of the sketch challenges from Fancy Pants Designs- swagger that I created last weekend at scrapagogo retreat. I just love the effect of the orange and brown papers it suits this photograph of my brother and his girlfriend on our wedding day perfectly.

GOGO Getaway 2013

So I spent this weekend at Theobolds park with GoGo Getaway, organised by the lovely Janice and Lorraine and there Design Team :-) I had a fantastic time eating lovely food, creating fab layouts and catching up the old friends and making some new ones too!!!

This was my cute gift waiting on my desk in the crop room :-) I love it. It was filled with chocolate eggs and a Lindt bunny I'm planing to use it as a new pen pot.

This was my first class of the weekend called The heat is on By Rebekah Day it was a really good class using vibrant colours and crayons that litrally drip off the page!
This was my second class called Madam Buterfly by Sheena Rowlands this was the first time I have had Sheena teach me a class and it was fantastic I love her scrapbook style and her class was very enjoyable I created these beautiful decorative pins and little fiddley but defiantly worth the overall look!

Next was Mini Memories with Sam Ball it looks complicated but its atually a simple way to add a mini book to your 12x12 layout and include lots more pictures. I used black and white pictures of my hen party and my title was Oi Oi Sailor!, I had such a giggle in this class with Sarah and Rubina thanks girls :-)

I had Sam again for this class called Natures Trappings, I Love Sams layouts this was a lovely earthy woodland wonder, i used photographs of my walk to the wedding venue and wasa given a great Tilte by the lovely Lisa Griffin "single steps" how perfect is that!! love the intricate weaving effect of this layout.

My last class of the saturday was the lovely Janice Warren with 'charmed im sure' this class was nice and rexaing at the end of the day creating this charm bracelet emblishment. I used a black and whit picture of very own Prince Charming!

'Once upon a time' with Sam Ball thsi class had a very fairy tail air about it which jumps from the pages into relaity I learnt how to create this lovely page marker I love this page thanks Sam xxxx

Last but not lease this was my final class of the weekend with Rebekah, however by this point I had truned into a giggle girl and lost the plot with the measurement and putting the class together lol sorry Rebekah. in this class we created filmo apple emblishments yummy.

all in all I had an amazing weekend and also created 9 layouts as challenges across the weekend which i will post in another blog entry.
 all that is left to say is a HUGE thankyou to Janice, Lorraine, Katie, Nicola, Eileen, Sam, Sheena, Rebekah, Pam, Lisa and Louise. I had the best time ever this weekend you passion of crafting is amazing and you have given me lots of insperation to get making
