Another layout of our trip, this one of myself meeting "Slim Newton"- a country and western singer, in Tamworth at his launch of the CD - 'Redback On The Toilet Seat'. The paper I used was a "On This Day -Webster paper".

After the retreat that I have been going on about for the last few blog entries I called in at Karen Smiths shop at Hyden on the way home. After a short conversation Amy questioned whether I shouldnt be sick of scrapbooking after a whole weekend of it and I must say I actually find them inspiring they get the creative juices flowing again. Here are another 3 layouts I have done since I have got home, I think I am always going to make kits from now on

Seal Bay

Quite like how this one turned out! Split a large star, divided it and added the photos etc.
These seals are in a colony on Kangaroo Island, we were on a guided tour (only way to do it), so were able to get down onto the beach to view them within metres!

On our trip around Australia, we visited my Grandma in Buberim, Q'ld. She is 94 years old now and still has her memory and sense of humour! One amazing woman!!
For the layout I used up some scrap papers & bits - something I should do a bit more often!

Double layouts from the retreat

This is the last of my retreat layouts, as you can see I got alot done. This was due to the fact that I preorganised my photos and papers into kits and used pagemaps from Becky Flecks website.
I have a few kits left over so I will be completing those over the next few weeks

Mt Isa Tourist Mine

A simple layout of us at the Hard Times Mine, just about to go underground on a mine tour, dressed in the mining outfit, safety gear, head lamp etc.

The Pelican Man

A double page layout of some holiday photos of pelicans that we fed on Kangaroo Island, S.A. Quite happy with how the pages turned out, after getting an idea from one of Gayle's layouts recently!

Mietta's 1st Birthday

Last night we celebrated Mietta's belated first birthday! Granny (me) made her a butterfly cake. She thought the coloured lollies were okay!
