The slide show above is of Shimelle’s class to make a mini book from scratch..
I didn’t have the photo’s with me on the retreat but did know what I wanted to use so was determent to finish it last night [didn’t go to bed till 1.30am!]
I wanted to make this mini book all about my surprise trip to Venice for my birthday last year.. and I still got tonnes more pictures left so i will add to it when I get to it 🙂
On Sunday we attended a class by Mary-Ann.. to make a hanging frame, this was such a fab project [even after the initial confusion in the lesson.. lol] and am thrilled with the result.
In the close up you can see that the spaces for the photo’s are actually recessed making them really stand out.
Again I didn’t have matching photo’s with me so Caz kindly printed one out for me of the two of us
and the close up of me was taken on last years GoGo retreat by Cheryl
[who has done my Boudoir one this year!]
And aren’t those flowers fab?? Expect to see some on my cards real soon!!
Next we have my take on the class by Jane,
this really went with a “Pop”
Again had to finish this project when I was back as we were having alot of work done to the house the past few weeks and it is now [nearly] finished..
This workshop had the little pop up house that folds flat and fits in the pocket that is the label shape on the front.
There are lots of labels, tags and pockets to put journaling and mini photo’s so I was able to take pictures of all the rooms in the house and incorporate it on one Layout!!
I loved the drawing & doodling I was able to do on this project 🙂
Then there were 4 more LO’s I was able to complete… here are two of them:
I’m so pleased with myself that I was able to do 8 layouts,
a mini book and the frame over the weekend, it’s just been so worthwhile!
I haven’t made any cards at all..
I suppose after not having made any scrap projects all year
I kinda got consumed with it over at Scrapagogo..
But I should be back with a vengeanceby the end of this week! LOL
So sorry for this long post.. but I did have lots to show you!!
I’ll leave you with a little warning…
I just found out there has been alot of fraudulent activity on my account
which is going to take ages to sort out!
Apparently my card has been cloned and a camera was used to get my pin
Please, please take care when withdrawing money from cash machines
or use on the Internet on sites you are not 100% sure off..
Have a wonderful evening everyone!
