Finally, I am getting a chance to share a few photos with you of the wonderful ReLay for Life *Cropping for a Cure* 2 Day Scrapbook Retreat last weekend! What an EVENT! The above photo was taken during my class on creating a "Winter Wonderland" scrapbook page. Pictured is one of the event organizers ~ Jen Carlisle (right) and one of the smiling participants ~ Barb Gubbels (left). They were so creative and we had a fantastic time!
Originally, I was asked to do a 6 x 6 layout and below is a photo of my example. As it was, most of the ladies prefer 12 x 12 pages so we went with that and modified my original idea. I think I learned more than they did! :)
Below is a photo of the other event organizer ~ Kim Hoffman. Here she is holding a 2-page layout of her youngest daughter Brooklyn ~ nicknamed Baby Bird. Kim used the Stampin' Up! 2-Step Bird punch in a coordinating designer paper to embellish her page. You wouldn't believe how many fabulous scrapbook pages she created over the weekend and I really wish I could show you all of them! If Kimmy looks a wee bit tired, she probably is, as this photo was taken late on the second day and I think she only had about 4 hours sleep the night before!
My other class was called "Cardmaking with your Scrapbooking Scraps" and each participant created two cards like the ones below. I showed them a variety of ways to use their scraps of designer paper and cardstock to create some quick and simple greeting cards.
This was such a great fundraiser for a worthwhile cause and everyone attending had a fabulous time! I was a little nervous about doing this, but I met so many sweet ladies and was inspired by their creativity! Now I'm hoping they'll ask me back again next time!
That's all for tonight folks! I need to catch up on visiting a few of my favorite bloggers! Take care and do come back again soon, ok?!
Smiles 2 U ~
Quote for Today ~
I could keep on scrappin'
or I could go to bed,
but then what would I do
with all these layouts in my head?
Nice photos, Pam, and I love your scrap cards! Great idea!
ohhhh!It looked like you had such a great time!! Wish I could have gone :( Your cards are great and the winter layout - fun! I liked how you tucked the journaling behind the picture. I bet you have LOTS of winter pictures you can scrap this year!!
