and we are off-round 1

I spent last weekend with a group of girlies at a retreat in Frodsham. It was great-great food, great company, great chat.
I thought I'd better split the products of the weekend into several posts to avoid a picture heavy loooooooong post. So first up are the challenges we were set. This first one had to use a white piece of card, the camera and the two pins as well as a gold polka-dot straw which you can just see tucked behind the photo and the camera. The photo is one of many of Son no.2 and my niece. I have had to scrap them all twice- one for each album.

This next one was also a challenge. We had to use the mannequin die cuts. It seemed very fitting to use them on a layout of Sarah.

 The third layout was also a challenge. This was a sketch challenge made by some of the girls being blindfolded and sticking various elements to a board making up a sketch. Clever idea but difficult sketch to follow. I rotated it and used a photo of a steel water ball taken at the Art and Architecture Festival at Wirksworth.

Will load some more in the next couple of days.


  1. Cracking layouts :) Glad you had a fun retreat with lots of girly chat lol :D P x

  2. Oh, the colours and patterns in that steel ball layout are perfect ... A lovely threesome, and those challenges sound, well, quite unusual and challenging! Glad you had such a nice time :).

  3. It was a great weekend, wasn't it! I love all the LO's you did for the challenges, but the bottom one is my favourite - fab photo and lovely combination of papers/embellishments.
