Kilcoy Retreat

On the long weekend in May I went to a retreat at Kilcoy for four days.
Was lovely to get away with like-minded girls and we had a wonderful time.
So much laughing and frivolity!!
Thought it might be cold but we had beautiful weather. One night was down to 7 degrees and the next night was colder so I think probably about 5. I loved it as I really feel the heat.
Anyway, we did a class with the lovely Gail Lindner. Mine doesn't have any photos on it yet but you can get the idea.

I liked the design of this so much that with Gail's permission I decided to do another layout in softer colours, only this time I used one larger photo and I love how it turned out. This little sweetheart is the daughter of my nephew.

Sketches with a Twist

I really enjoyed doing this LO for Sketches with a Twist. The twist this month was to use sewing so I punched around the edge and stitched all around as well.

Handmade by Suzanne

I did the sketch for Handmade by Suzann this month as well.

Scrapboutique ay Challenges

I've managed to get these challenges done this month plus a couple of others.
The first one we had to do a LO based on how much we love our Mum or alternatively one on how much we love being a Mum.
Had to also have LOVE in the title.

The next one is a sketch challenge.

The third one is the Stash Stompers. I always like doing this challenge as it helps to use up a lot of things hanging around in our stash. This month we had to use Alphas in a different way other than a title.
