E2C mini retreat layouts...

Two weekends ago I went to the Escape2create mini retreat at Trinity....and tried to scrap up some pages. After discovering I haven't scrapped for some time or taken many photos in the later part of this year...it was time for some scrappy catch-up. Birthdays a plenty.... to get the mojo happening I copied  the Gina Rogers class from the big retreat in March this year.

This was a photo from Rob's birthday shared with the Lukin boys...
Love this moment:
I used some pretty papers with this one, and added a touch a gold...with gold washi, and put some gold card stock through the dymo labeller to make some little word strips.
Then onto one of my favourite times and pics with the boys, when we went tadpole hunting at the waterhole.
The tadpole hunt:

I went for a smaller size page for this one....and felt that the page fills up way too quickly for me!! Quick and easier way to scrap I guess...I think I prefer 12 x 12 still, but it suited the smaller photos.

Will be back soon with some more from that scrappy weekend away.

Thanks for popping on by and hope you find some time to scrap this weekend,

Turning 10 today...

Finally quite time to finish this off and post it up...

Mr Ethan, who turned 10 back in January!!

I haven't scrapped in such a long time- I just pulled out some patterned paper, and started sticking, adding whatever I found within reach - no rules but it came together better than I first was imagining!!!
Now this week to begin getting organised for the mini retreat....I haven't printed any photos off since Feb 2014,  So i have gotten out my cameras....and ummm...yep there are some pics n more birthdays awaiting for me to scrap.- and that doesn't even included any travel photos!!  Off to the print shop i go!!!

Well, hope you are having a nice long weekend,

Thanks for popping by,
