Today we decided to have a day at the beach in Mojacar, as the weather is getting cooler and more pleasant, its still in the late 70's here and October has been a lovely month.

Albie and I had a run on the beach and in the sea and it was still nice and warm. He was not too sure about the waves he prefers to run on dry land.

Here are a few of the layouts from my fabby weekend in Leeds at the Scrapstars retreat, I still have a few of the projects to finish but,
I have been a little bit poorly, with a bad chest and cold and today is the
only day I have felt like doing any scrapping and felt like I am back in the land of living again!!!

This class was taught by the ever talented lady, Kirsty Wiseman. It is a canvas using cosmic glimmer mists, love the colours and I think they go so well with my photo of my ever gorgeous dog Albie.

This is the layout from Rachael Elliot's class, she is such an inspiration,check out her blog. I love her work, like all the handcutting and the velum on this page. My photo is of my Niece Sophie, using the gorgeous Websters pages.


This class was taught by another talented lady, Emma Trout. I found her class very exciting, loved the concept of this class with the idea of the memory jar on the page, the layout is of my dearly beloved dog Travis who sadly I lost this year in May, this page will definitely be treasured.

Another class by Emma Trout, using the ever gorgous Websters pages, my layout is of a recent trip to Egypt in a hot air balloon.

Balloon Trip - Journey

Hope you have enjoyed my layouts and thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.

It's so nice to back home, missed my boys and I suppose I missed the old man, we celebrated our wedding anniversary on Friday the 30th, 28 years.

I spent 6 days in the UK, at the weekend I was in Leeds at the Scrapstars retreat and had a great time, scrapping, eating and lots of talking. It was so lovely to meet old friends from past retreats and make new friends who I had only spoke to over the Internet.

The weekend was packed with 8 classes starting on the Friday night through to the Sunday, and the classes and teachers were amazing with their stunning creations. I only managed to complete 2 of the classes, might have been because I spent more time chatting and eating, I had a fab time and will definitely do it all again.
