Photo taken at our scrapping retreat in April of this year. This is another layout I did as guest designer for Scrapbucks. K and Company papers. I used the EK Success large scallop punch for the inside borders. Punched one in the rust and one in white and layered them. Then I constructed the frame on another piece of the ppr. The flowers were cut from another piece of the papers. Then I added a little chipboard and bling to the flower center. I also added some stickles to the flower and leaves for a little sparkle. The flower is pop-dotted for dimension. There are 3 bling brads that I placed through some chipboard circles and put them under the photo. Journaling is tucked behind the striped mat and reads:
April 3-5, 2009…A weekend we'll all remember. I had previous met Julie (retrojulie), and of course, Betty is my sister, but getting to meet Susan (scrappySusan) and Robbie was definitely a “treat.” I have to say that everyone was exactly as I had imagined them to be! I'm not usually a retreat kind of person, but I'm really glad that I went to this one, because after meeting these girls, Lord only knows what they would have been up to if I hadn't been there to keep them straight!

All scrapping supplies (except for solid cardstock) are from Scrapbuck. Thanks, Laura!
