Do you know that I laughed so much at my scrapbooking retreat over the weekend that my tummy still hurts?! We had a wonderful time and I'll be sharing some pictures very soon.
I've not been able to get into my craft room for any actual crafting since then so my desk is basically a half unpacked crop bag! Sarah brought my order for 4 new American Crafts albums so I can file that stack of layouts that I completed even though I nearly forgot to pack any photos! I keep a not of the layouts before I file them so I know which ones need putting on the blog so that's what I'd been doing here having just photographed them in the garden... in the dry... in the sun!!!
The layout on the right there was finished a few seconds before I left on Friday morning and so that one needed photographing too. This one was for the S J Papercrafts challenge for March which involved us all using a set of photographs as inspiration. If you fancy a challenge thn pop over and see what inspires you from the pictures too. There is also another prize on offer this month from another WOYWW-er, the lovely Annie. Personally I was inspired to use the colours and textures from the pictures to create this windy beach layout using Crate Paper's Pier collection. Louis was just over a year old in this picture from his first beach trip in Newport, Pembrokeshire. Even then we knew he'd love it more and more as he got older and he certainly has!
Bye for now
