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,

Sue xx

love those colours in love this moment. I hadn't thought of using the dymo on gold card. that's a winner idea. I'll be sure to credit you if I get round to scrapping and use that idea. ;)
