Best Weekend EVER!!

I have just returned from what would have to be the best retreat I have ever been on. I flew to Sydney to go to the Little Scrapbook Shop retreat at Kurrajong. All of the ladies are so lovely (and a little bit naughty! lol). I have not laughed so hard in a long time. I'd like to say a big thank you to Cath & Nic for all their hard work organising the weekend. The goodies we received were just amazing - we were each given a laptop bag and mountains of scrappy goodness!!

Cath asked me to teach a layout class at this years retreat. I've never taught a class before, so I was really nervous but the ladies seemed to enjoy it. We used the gorgeous Cosmo Cricket 'Odds & Ends' papers and made the flower using fabric and Glubers. Here it is:
I managed to scrap 18 layouts over the weekend! The shop was choc-full of new goodies and I spent waaaay too much but it was worth it! I won't bombard you with all 18 layouts at once so here are a few. The photo on this layout was given to me by the gorgeous Lisa Oxley - she took it at Camp Mojo.

I scrapped Lachlan's official school photo from this year. I've used the Fancy Pants range 'Off to School' on this one - love, love, love it!

This one is using the same range and a little bit of Echo Park 'Happy Days':

I love these photos of Michala - she sure looks like she's having fun! I've used another Fancy Pants range on this one. It's called 'It's the Little Things':

And again on this one:

I'll share the others over the next few days. Thanks so much for stopping by...


  1. Wow Lauren, what awesome layouts. By the looks of things you really did scrap up a storm while on retreat. Can't wait to see the rest.

  2. 18 layouts! WOW! That's a pretty fair effort ;).

    These pages are awesome!!!!

  3. I can't wait to go retreating in a few weeks, fingers crossed I can scrap up an awesome storm like these layouts


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment! I love reading them. :)
