A Creative Weekend

Last weekend was spent here at this years Scrap-a-Mia. A full weekend (very full) of creating. There was much inking, sticking and cutting going on.
First class to get messy in was Dina Wakely's - Curly Wurlys included. A crafter needs to keep her energy levels up
I used photos from my 40th birthday last year to make a canvas bunting album
Some of Dina's fabulous stencil and mask collection. I'm on the hunt for plastic doilies now. 
Snapped mid cut by Sonja during Michelle's class I think we were laughing at how tall Michelle is and how short I am :-)


Two layouts I made with Webster's Pages designed and taught by Emma Trout. I also made a cute minibook in Celine Navarro's class. She had some of her work with her and her ideas for minibooks are really different.

I can't believe that a week has nearly passed since I set off to pick Sonja up from the airport and we had a leisurely stroll along the prom in the sunshine.

Here's to blog friendships

Loved seeing the results of your very productive weekend, and nice to see photos of you IRL. :) Your pages are most impressive - that looks like a lot of very careful work, and the subtle effect is delightful, and just suits the photo ...

I had a great time and the prom was fab. It's scary a week has passed already. I have finished Emma's 8 x 8 although I have mislaid the crown ! It was on my desk and now it's nowhere to be seen.
