grab a seat and a snack this is going to be a long one LOL

finally got round to unpacking my bags from the sarahs cards retreat last week (was having dinner this time last week LOL) and i also got round to taking lots of photo's so get yourself comfy cos here we go LOL

first up was actually my classrooms last class, a vintage distressed class by rachael elliott, so not me but it turned out gorgeous but then again what else is to be expected it's a rachael class LOL next is this lovely class by lianne mawer, it was to use lacy paper and has given me an idea of what to do with it so i can use up the hoards i have now :) it was using the dear lizzy papers by american crafts and is another gorgeous one (ok word of warning now, i'm gonna use gorgeous a lot LOL) this one is by claire wheatley and is using websters pages, i saw the kit and nearly passed out as this is so not me and i avoid websters pages like the plague but it turned out to be one of my favourite classes i just love it :) gorgeous innit ??? LOL this one was our first class of the retreat by vanessa, an old crop friend from a while ago, it was lovely to see her and this class was right up my street :) of course i never follow the class instructions to the letter but vanessa knows me from old and was quite happy to let me go off on a tangent LOL and it had some gorgeous papers to use with the loveliest bunting :)
this next one was by lou and is another stunner and one i would never have thought of doing, a see through lay out, how cool is that ? loved the papers on this one too and more gorgeous bunting :) don't ya just love a bit of bunting LOL this is the last class i've got to upload but these are probably my favourite papers of the entire retreat, gorgeous colours and cute owls, what more can a girl want LOL the class was by nat and we got to sew a cute little embellie :) the rest are the layouts i completed over the weekend, last year including classes i managed 17 so this year i wanted to better that and was dead chuffed to manage 18, mind you in november i'm not going for 19 that would just be silly LOL so there you go, all 18, hope you like and i haven't bored you to death by now LOL
