Super scrappy weekend

I had an amazing weekend away at the Scrap Boutique retreat, spending some fun girly time with my 'old' friends, meeting some online friends in person for the first time, and meeting some new friends too.  Lots of scrapping, relaxing, and lots of laughing too. 

I lost count of how many layouts and cards I created... too busy just getting into the zone and enjoying the process.  I finished off some design team projects, completed a few challenges, made some Christmas cards and gifts, and caught up on quite a few older photographs.

I haven't photographed everything yet, but here's the first installment:

# Design Dollies ~ Colour Challenge ~ black and turquoise
I used: Coredinations black cardstock, Delish paper, 'Midnight Blue' Glimmermist, Petaloo flowers, American Crafts brad, Prima packaging, Martha Stewart 'Arch Lattice' border punch, Maya Road ribbon, MME diecut alphas, Kaisercraft flower, Blueye Dezines flower, Signo gel pens, Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Labels 8' die

Next, a few cards.  Both of them were made using some white cardstock, offcuts of Bo Bunny 'Alissa' papers, and a Cuttlebug embossing folder:

# Caardvarks ~ Circle of Friends ~ Create a new round card with pizazz!
I used Spellbinders Nestabilities scalloped circles die to create the round shape.  The 'pizazz' factor is the touches of glitter glue in the flower centres, which is really hard to see in the photograph.

# Simon Says ~ Thinking of you
