Some of my layouts from the Condi Retreat

I did more but I will probably enter them into the Esperance Show so I thought I had better not publish them on the blog

Recent Condingup Retreat Layouts

Some examples of the layouts I completed at our recent Retreat. Karen Smith was our tutor and we did layouts to include ten or more photos; use of alcoholic inks, use of and application of grommets, and the use of a label maker. Also some "make and take" gift boxes (off the page project). It was a great weekend with friends, old and new!!!

Cousins Layout

Finally found a layout to do using up papers that Karen Smith gave us as a gift at the last Condingup Retreat. Added a 'Cousins' paper split one quarter so can sit in an album as a double page.

Some Great Drawings by Fred

My first go at using Sizzix lettering and the Xyron Sticker maker. It was a bit sticky and fiddly, but definitely worth the effort!

Little William

Another simple layout of my friend's baby, William at 13 days old.
Used "Making Memories" Animal Crackers (Ella Giraffes) paper and cut into strips and taped onto to bazzill with little gaps between. Finished it off with little embellishments and ribbon.

Peas In A Pod

A simple layout completed on a "Making Memories" printed die-cut page.
I cut the scrolls out to frame the photo and bring the detailed scrolling into focus.

Its been a while

My life has been pretty hectic lately but i have tried to get some layo9uts done nothing fancy just simple(the way i like it) havent caught up with the girls for ages but hopefully will get togehter with them soon (sorry girls).
This layout i did i love it is all about my motherinlaw who is very special to me i was experimenting with circles and frames I LOVE CIRCLES im right into them at the moment i think they look real effective.

This layout is of my boy and the different personalties he has he is definetly one of a kind, but i wouldnt have it any other way. the paper embellishments i have used i won at a recent TLC workshop i attended they were just right for the job.

Nice simple layout of my daughter who is always asking WHY i experimented with my photos and even tore the paper really happy with the end result.

Dorothy the Dinosaur...

When we visited Dreamworld on a recent trip to Queensland. Darcy saw Dorothy ran up and gave her a big hug... Only problem being that he jumped the queue of kids waiting by the time his turn came up he was over it and wouldn't go anywhere near

Baby Layout- William John

I completed this layout last night, first for awhile. It is of a friend's (Joanne) baby, William. He is ten hours old and a real cutie! Joanne has joined our group from time to time to scrapbook.

Patchwork Quilt for future grandchild

This is why I haven't completed any scrapbooking layouts lately. I've been busy trying to complete this quilt as our grandchild is due next month. Just need to add a couple of pigs and a rooster to the farmyard scene, some eyes to the people and animals, then sew a coloured stripey border on and red binding. Thanks to Belinda for your help and advice on a border fabric. So watch this post for the finished article.
