Scrapaholix Retreat Class LOs - my LOs

A class I went to led by Mandy - making the ribbon flowers as well as the LO. The photo is of Mathew and his girlfriend Amy on their first valentines together in 2009

A class again led by Mandy - lots of gutting and cutting out swirls but lots of fun! The photo is of my great grand parents arriving at the church for my wedding.

This class was led by Carolyn - I added the gems on after they werent in the class kit! lol. This is another photo from my wedding and is of great grand parents and grandparents with James and me.

Another Mandy Class with more papers suitable for my wedding photos - the photo is of my sister in law who was my chief bridesmaid. The large cream flower was hand made from cream and blue cardstock

My favourite class of the weekend had to be this one - my favourite papers at the moment from BoBunny and making more flowers by hand! Again the papers were just right for another wedding photo!

More LOs from the scrapaholix retreat crop room

Another LO from our weekend away in Brighton to celebrate James's 50th birthday - i hand made the flowers from some old cardstock.

Yet another LO for my wedding album - the swirls of pearls were hand done pearl by pearl lol

I loved these BoBunny papers from my Sarahscards monthly kit and so did another LO for my wedding album

The LO of my boys was a scraplift from a class I did during the scrapaholix retreat led by Carolyn (see above) but putting my slant on it! lol

Big Drip - Ben after a water fight with his cousin Billy - using more papers from a monthly kit and adding 3D paint pearls as drips of water!

More papers using the same monthly kit from Sarahscards as Big Drip (above) and showing Jow trying to kiss a crab (not sure why though lol)

After finally finishing the revamping of my craft room and having a good sort out I finally started to get down to scrapping again last week. I was sorting out photos and papers to take away with me to the scrapaholix retreat this last weekend but found some photos I wanted to use on some Total Papercraft kits I had and hadnt used yet. Here are the LOs I made last week ...

The above is the LHS and below the RHS of a DLO about a time spent in Cornwall back in 2008
