Stay at home with Emilie

That's just what we did. Our first retreat at home. (What a joy to not have to worry about whether we had packed this, that or the other because we were going home at night and could get what we needed for the next day. Bliss).
We had the talented Emilie Chamel come for the weekend and teach us various techniques to use on our scrapbooking layouts. Emilie is on the design team for Merly Impressions and has her own unique style. So here are the layouts we produced:

 Day 1.

These first 3 used the Maggie Holmes Collection. Most of us had time to fit it another un-scheduled one:

Day 2 was all about stamping to make our own papers.
Lots of patience required here to colour the white card and then stamp all over but extremely enjoyable.

A great time was had and I can't wait for the next time we do something like this.
Emilie, if you are reading this " Many thanks".
