Have I got scrap for you October Challenge

Hi All

Another quick post sharing a layout for a UKS Challenge.  Niki Rowland of Being Scrappy set a challenge to use homemade embellishments.  I created some little embellishments using parts of the patterned papers I was using.  Niki also provided a sketch which I really enjoyed working with.

The papers used are all American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan range, I bought this paper pad in TK Maxx recently as I thought it was so pretty, I then got home and discovered I already had it - whoops!

Creative Craft World Retreat

Hello blog world

I was very lucky to be able to go on a great craft retreat weekend before last and wanted to share all the layouts I did.

This first layout was for a sketch challenge set by sue, her blog is here

This layout was done in a watercolour workshop run by Morag, really enjoyed using paint in a new way.

This layout was done in a washi tape workshop again run by Sue, my washi collection needs to grow!

This last layout was done in a workshop run by Niki, her blog is here do check it out as she puts together a great monthly scrapbooking kit.

I also took part in a workshop run by Lou, owner of Creative Craft World, where we made these lovely photo holders

I also did a couple of layouts in my free time:

It was certainly a packed weekend and great fun.
