Getting scrappy

Hi guys. I'm sure you are all aware of the magic of modeling paste and how it can add such a gorgeous dimension to your layout without taking over. Well I love it! My problem is that I don't have a lot of masks to use so I'm making my own on the Silhouette, which is great as it means I can use a variety of different designs I have in my Silhouette library.

For the latest challenge at 123 Get Scrappy, I chose the row of Tree/Rhinestones/Washi. It was a great chance to try out my woodgrain design (hence the tree theme) from the Silhouette. I also do have a stash of the gorgeous new Washi from the MME Chalk Studio collection which I've been procrastinating about too, so this Challenge kicked me into gear for that too.

This is a special photo, my gorgeous James with his Grandad, my Dad, who we love to bits. The quote seemed to fit just so well.

Unfortunately the photos probably don't give the woodgrain design justice, but I hope you like...

Love Bee

Retreat time again...

I have just come back from the Scrappin Patch Retreat at Glentui over the weekend and I'm still in Scrapbooking heaven. 2 days of uninterrupted scrapbooking. I missed my children, I did, but there is something to be said for surrounding yourself for a time with women who all have that common churn out as many layouts as they can. It was fabulous. And it was a great chance to give my 12x12's a bit more attention. So with 16 achieved, here are my results, not a bad weekend's effort really..
