2011 retreat!

well i have been offline due to a virus in my computer for so long i nearly forgot how to do this...LOL....yeah right! our 2011 retreat was awesome...great company with loads of mojo flowing...the one sad thing about the weekend was that the gorgeous Kate had to go home ill on friday night...we missed you honey and thought about you lots!.... i sincerely hope you are all better now and that we can catch up for a scrap again soon...xxxx sandy put this little collage together for you all to check out...i think a great weekend was had by all...i didn't get as many pages done as i had hoped but i am really happy with what i did make especially the 8.5 x 11 pages....the first 3 pages here i did in 12 x 12 cause i needed them for my family album...after that i stuck to the 8.5 x 11 challenge of the weekend.....
this page started out as a great idea then drove me nuts!!!!!! the 6 lines of hand stitching proved very time consuming...LOL....but i got there in the end...this photo is my mum and her older sister doris in stanthorpe many many years
i LOVE this one and it is a complete scraplift from michelle...THANKS SO MUCH for allowing me to copy michelle and for the gorgeous key charm....i just LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!! this is my mum and her great-grandmother emma hicks.
this gorgeous photo is of my mum's uncle and his wife on their wedding gorgeous is Esme's dress...i LOVE it!!! all that lace is stunning!
miss ebony's 3rd birthday party....i love the prima butterflies!!
OMG i painted!!!!!! inspired by Kate and the painting she does so beautifully on her layouts i just had to give it another previous attempts with paint were total messes...yuck! but this i LOVE...i managed to get great coverage with the glitter paints which i think went really well with the photo of ebony and loopy the clown at ebony's 5th birthday party.
this quicky is of chantelle playing with her bubbles at maitland park when we had a family picnic for christmas back in of all ages just seem to love bubbles don't they???....thanks for the pearls sandy....they totally finished the page off...xxxxx
some more dance concert photos of ebony....i love my new martha stewart butterfly punch!!!

ok i am off to do some shopping but i will be back with reunion pages and the class kits details for my april class later make sure you come back and check things out.....see you soon ...xxxxxxxx
