I thought I would show you some of my photos from the ATDML Retreat, we stay at a gorgeous hotel ...and when you walk into our crop room the first thing that tells me we are on the retreat is the smell of paper in the shop! It smell a bit like raw silk (ok...it could just be me!!!). You then get some help from Jane to find your desk and there is a bag of goodies to get you going, details of all the challenges and your classes.
I took along a newbie scrapper - who was very worried that she wouldn't be able to keep up with everyone else, she made her first pages at the retreat and did a super job and loved it, and wants to go on another one - so here is a shot of her (my Mum) in her first classes - I'll speak to her nicely and see if I can photo her page to show you.
Karen Moss made us some gorgeous cakes for her last class....so what more could you want - cake, tea and lovely papers.
Here's my Mum hard at work on Karen's page
This is my small mountain of food for Sunday lunch which was delicious.
Onto a few of my creations - this is one of my pages from Ann Freeman's 24/7 class - I used the washing line to style to hang lots of animal photos from the Wild Animal Park at Disney last year. There was lots of cutting and layering.
This is the other page using 24/7 that we did with Ann- a beautiful hexagon paper that we cut out, and then we made some twine flowers - I like the journalling in the hexagons idea too - so this is one of a few shots that we have of the Disney Castle
I have lots more pages to show you from it, so I'll be back soon.
