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
