Online class

I've just uploaded a shaker box class on to Purplescraps. Hopefully they will all be able to follow my instructions. Happy halloween to my readers.
At the retreat I met Mel Nunn whose work I have admired for ages on Scrapboxx and in the magazines.I think she thought i was a stalker cause i kept going over and looking at her creations but it is good to watch how talented people come up with ideas.

Best layout I've done in ages.

I recently made a layout for "white with one' blog using a colour I detest...Orange.I threw everything orange I had at it and surprised myself by creating a really good layout (in my eyes anyway) I used a shaker box,several flowers,lace flowers I've had for years,painted chipboard and buttons. I photoshopped a coloured photo into a black and white one. The whole layout came together beautifully.

Layouts from the retreat

Here are 4 I did at the retreat. More will follow soon.

The A challenge

With this one we had to make all the embellishments start with A.I used a photo of umbrellas my mother has had for 90 years.I'm happy with the colourscheme and have received many favourable comments on this one.

Be prepared!

I'm off to the imagination factory retreat next weekend at Cave Hill Creek, Beaufort(near Ballarat,Vic). I've just had a heap of photos developed and I'm starting to pack layout kits so I can be prepared when I get there.As there won't be a scrapping store there selling stuff I have stocked up on cardstock, patterned paper etc and will pack ribbons,buttons,rhinestones etc to take with me.Luckily there is a spare bed here that I can make piles of stuff on until I pack.I'm really looking forward to it!

Kaisercraft ribbon box

Last year at a retreat I won a Kaisercraft ribbon box kit complete with papers and paint.I bought extra ribbon spools and have most of my ribbons organised on to them now. I finally finished the box over the weekend.It is colourful and easy to find in my craft cupboard.
