Announcement! BW2 Design Team Member!

I have been holding on to this and finally the date has arrived to announce that I have 
accepted a position on the "Black With 2" Challenge Blog DESIGN TEAM along with an 
amazing team of talented ladies!

I'm hoping that we inspire you to create and participate in the monthly challenges.

Here's the Mood Board challenge for May!

My take on the challenge!

Looking forward to seeing your entries for May!

I Won!

I forgot to come back and post the results from the Castle Hill Show.
I won 1st and 2nd place for my Scrapbooking! SO exciting!

Feeling Sketchy

I loved the simplicity of this month's Feeling Sketchy sketch and tried to 
reflect that in my layout by not going overboard with embellishments. 
Sometimes it's nice to show restraint!

The sketch!

My layout!

Thanks for stopping by to take a look and leave some love!

A Weekend In Paris

Tattered Inspirations run the best scrapbooking retreats and the last one titled "Parisian Romance" (a couple of weekends ago) would have to have been the best one yet! Awesome company, superb catering and great shopping, not to mention the fabulous group of ladies to scrap with too!
Here are some shots from the weekend. I was thrilled to be awarded "Retreat Champion" 
behind Kerry Smith was awarded Retreat Grand Champion.

A bumpy start getting my scrap stash into the car!

 The Parisian Ladies!

My awesome table buddy - the lovely Kim Kendell.

 Ray (the official photographer) snapped this candid shot!

My Champion layout!

 Another challenge layout I created.

 My certificates (minus the prizes I forgot to photograph!)
Very grateful for the beautiful prizes.

What a TOPS weekend away and a great way to start the school holidays!
