Scrappin Patch Retreat and a beautiful Canvas

Hi folks,

Just wanted to quickly share a beautiful class that i  did at the recent Scrappin Patch retreat . This was taught by the awesomely talented Megan Gourlay. A 12 by 12 canvas that featured texture pasting and stamping and beautiful Marion Smith papers and of course Prima flowers! We were able to keep the stencil and the stamp from the class for future use which was great too!

Love the colours on this one! And nice to scrap a photo of hubby and me too! This one was taken at my 40th back in October.


And some close ups



 some lovely dies and fussy cutting



The retreat was fabulous fun and this time we had 4 days instead of three which meant that it was a great social occasion and we heaps of time to relax and socialise as well as scrap and do classes. The next one rolls around in Sept so that will be here before i know it!

Here is a photo of the retreat ladies - a huge 50 plus ladies made it this time - the largest group we have ever had!


And some of my best scrappin buddies - we usually meet on a Wednesday night to catch up and tomorrow we are off on a roadtrip to Timaru to visit ArtFull Crafts for their monthly crop day. Can;t wait to get into it again i have done nothing at all since retreat! Notice me and Megan still in our slippers !





 I had a great time experimenting a little and my stamps got a real work out this retreat. Stamping is not something that i have really embraced but just about every layout i did featured stamping gesso this time! Can't wait to show you some of my layouts as they are a little different to my normal style!

Well had better get organised for this crop day tomorrow - back soon with some Stationers Desk from Prima and lots of stamping!

Lovely Canvas. Hope your crop day at Artful Crafts went well.
Our Embellish It one is tomorrow, Sunday - you could have made a weekend of it lol. Look forward to seeing what you have done with Stationers Desk.

As you asked!! Love the new look and especially that you have linked "your" shops of choice. Hope the day went well down south.
