OK - lo's are here........

Look - I'm blogging again ALREADY!!LOL. Thought I'd better share some of my retreat creations.
This one was done using the Urban Prairie range from Basic Grey which we did in Nic Anderson's class. LOVE that we stitched around in really thick cotton - called topstitch apparently - next time I get to Spotlight I'm going 'topstitch' hunting! This one was really cute I thought - and suited my station photos better than I thought it would as the description was bright and funky. I love it (also done in Nic's class).

This one was done in Mardi Winen's class using the new Sass Lass stuff - love the colour combo on this one.

Another one done in Mardi's class - we actually did another LO and a mini-album in this class but I put them away in the right albums when I got home so now I have to dig them out to photograph them (I know, I know - organisation??what WAS I thinking?? Only leads to confusion!) These are colours I normally wouldn't have put together myself but I really love these pages.

Oh - and throughout the weekend we were given 5 challenge packs with which you had to make a LO using all the stuff included - you could add but couldn't take away. This is my take on the first challenge and I won it - YAY!!


I was a scrapping geek - and finished all my LO's for the classes and 4 of the 5 challenges - it actually made a nice change from when I normally get home and have a bunch of unfinished stuff which I think I will get straight onto when I get home - but then I don't!
Oh - and check this out from Anna's - wish I could enter - these prizes are fabulous - and there's SO many of them!!
