mini retreat 2011....

I have just had the most awesomest weekend away at the mini e2c retreat, with 37 of the most wonderful creative scrappers!! Totally amazing, i tell you!! I didn't have alot of scrapping mojo....but that is just me and scrapping away from home! But i did manage 4 layouts that i am going to share here with you. And once again my favourite subject.....my grandies....

You little rascal
with some paint splatting, creative cutting, and usage of some yummy washi (wasabi) tape....thanks to the lovely Amanda :)


Welcome
using some chipboard loveliness that i think i purchased at the March retreat!!


lub you baby Binn
i love this little boy when he snuggles in close to his new baby brother and says "lub you baby Binn" .... he can't say love or Finn properly yet. He says this to Finn every day....he is such a cute 2 year old!!
I have used some new Studio Calico chip shapes....oh, their ranges are so yummy!!!



turning four
my orange and brown layout....and when i was browsing around late saturday....Brigette S had also done a page using the same papers and almost the same design....by complete accident!! we laughed alot at that!!

Yes, all in all a wonderful weekend!! Thanks to Amanda & Meredith, my co-organisers....you girls do a fab job and i love sitting with you guys for the laughs alone....and the inspiration!! And to Tanya & Val who shared a table with us too....you girls are so much fun!!


Thanks to Kathryn (and your bunch of lovely helpers) for such yummy food.....i now need to detox or fast for the next week!! You do such a fab job too!!


And today, i am wishing i was sitting on that beach watching the waves again, Trinity is a great venue, and the weekend never seems long enough.........i so love the sea!!!


Hope you all had a great weekend too,


Sue xx

Love your LOs Sue, you are so very clever. What a fun weekend it was. I still pinch myself at times to realize I DO live by the sea now LOL :)
