Retreat Thank You cards

Wow, we had our first ever team retreat a couple of weeks ago. It was great, and we all had the best time, meeting each other for the first time and creating fabulous projects. I never had created so many projects in so little time all at once. Can't wait for the the next one. It was so successful that we are making it an annual event.
I just received these 2 beautiful cards from my wonderful down line.
Lyn Sambell created this first card. Just love it Lyn thanks so much. But it was truly a pleasure to help with organising the retreat with Pam
Cheryl Algie created this lovely card. Thank you Cheryl its is lovely, and such a great treat to have a fluttering butterfly. A must have set.

Looking forward to our next retreat with our team. So if you missed out this time, you will want to be aboard next year, so much fun.

Stampin' Friends Blog Hop

No automatic alt text available.

Welcome to Kelly's Friends Blog Hop, showcasing HAPPY. Firstly I would like to congratulate Kelly on her 5th year anniversary with Stampin' Up! Great effort Kel.
My project is a scrap layout of our handsome grand-son Oscar.  He is very happy when he plays with little motor cars, driving them over the furniture. I must admit I created this simply layout from a sketch on Pinterest for our up coming Team Retreat. I wanted to use the great set Eastern Beauty Bundle. Fifteen of us have to create this layout quickly so thought this highlighted the happy snaps with a less is better layout. A few punched circles, a little stamping, bigshot work, little bit of tearing the Designer Series Paper and a small shaker.

Full layout, so simply but effective.
Little shaker to have some fun with.
Highlight the HAPPY in your life.

Enjoy the Blog Hop and thanks for stopping by.  Click on the next button below to keep hopping on - and visit Kelly's blog.

Paisleys and Posies - Stampin' Up!

I was lucky enough to receive this lovely frame from a very dear friend., Lisa Jalocha. I have posted this before, but I have had so many lovely comments on this and have been asked for a class. I thought I would also try and put a different twist on it, so participants have a choice.

Lisa's masterpiece.
My effort at something a little different.

I liked this idea so much, thought I would try and do a card. My sister-in-law and her husband are celebrating forty years marriage very soon and thought it make for a great card.

 Card inside.

I am holding a class for the frames, on the 17th June 2017. at 1pm, so if you are interested get in contact with me, as I have limited spaces left.

Stamps for your Scrap Booking Layouts - Stampin' Up!

Back again, here are the wonderful layouts that everyone completed in my recent Scrap Booking Class.

This first one is Linda's pages, with her gorgeous little grandson playing at the park.

Sue has scrapped her handsome big grandson out fishing for her first layout, and Beautiful little Amelia (grand-daughter) with her daughter Fi. So sweet.

Bev and Adele high lighted Adele's birthday and still looking for photo's for their second one.

Noleen show cased her talented grand-daughter at her dance concert.

Carol was very proud of her grand-daughter who has recently done her deb, and they look great.

So many different photos and subjects, but the same layout looks great. Thanks ladies for a lovely afternoon scrapping with you.
