Hola Ladies,hope everyone is enjoying the summer and getting plenty of sunshine, well here it has been hotter than ever again, so I decided to take myself off to do some scrapping to escape the heat. I want to share with you my layout I have made for June's My Creative Scrapbook challenge. The photo is of my dear Niece Ruby when she was only 11 months old and now she is 3, growing so fast. The papers I have used are Pink Paislee from my monthly kit from My Creative Scrapbook, the kits are jam packed each month with beautiful co-ordinated papers, lots of lovely prima flowers and lots of yummy embellishments, I do so love getting my monthly kits, stalking the postie now for next months kit.

A bit of this and a bit of that!!!!

As the weather has been extremely hot here, I have been spending most of my time in the pool cooling down, hope you like the photos of my swimming pool and my beautiful oyster bed.

When not spending time in the pool chilling, I have been getting around to finishing off a couple of projects, from my last couple of scrapbooking retreats.
My first project is a fabulous album I made at Scrapstars retreat in Leeds back in April, this class was taught by the lovely Jolanda Meurs, it is such a pretty album, I like the felt flowers and bo bunny embellishments and paper we used.

In May I went back to England to visit family and friends and also went to a retreat in Derbyshire, Creative Heart and Soul, it was my first time at this retreat, it was a fab weekend meeting up with new and old friends, the next retreat is in October and I will certainly be looking forward to that.

Here are a few of my finished classes, still have a couple to finish off.

This class was taught by Tracie Hudson, it was a double layout class and I enjoyed doing this one, loved all the fussy cutting.

This class was taught by Jen Starr from the United States of America, she was so lovely, loved her accent and she taught an amazing class with distress inks and so many different ink techniques.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog and your comments are very much appreciated.

Muchas Gracias xxx

Well the title says it all, doesn't it.

This is my layout I did for this months sketch over on U. K. Scrappers. A few months ago I was invited to join a sketch group called scrap a sketch, they are a wonderful group of ladies some I have met at scrapbooking retreats and some only on line, they are truly a talented group of ladies.
