Retreat update - wish you were here x

Day two of the Spring 2011 retreat and we are all having a lovely time. One of the delegates Rachel had to pop home to bake a cupcake order and bought these back for us all! (I just viewed in awe!!)

Mel's first class used the delicious "Its the Little things" paper collection from Fancy Pants. A multi photo layout that was a great way to start of our creative weekend.

Jane then had everyone making this stunning Graphic 45 envelope minibook which she had made into her planner for the weekend also! (neat idea!)

Debbie closed the afternoon yesterday with an introduction to decopatch class (photos to follow) which everyone enjoyed and found very therapeutic.

After a good nights sleep in our lovely hotel rooms it was my turn to teach this morning and we undertook lots of detailed cutting and layering of the Prima Madeline papers, and then stitched and flocked! Photos of our delegates creating...
Jane was back in the classroom after me teaching her AMAZING birdhouse card holder (and a second example as an easter egg holder!!). Guess how many eggs are left?!! All of them as we are being fed and watered very well during our stay!

Mel then taught her patchwork layout class, followed by Debbie doing some pretty snazzy stuff with Sassafrass. More images to follow tomorrow, until then...there is paper to be cut my friends, I'm back to the crop room!
