GoGo Getaway October 2017

Hello dear neglected blog. Sorry I haven't visited in a while.

I went to my first GoGo Getaway retreat last month and it was a-ma-zing! I’m already booked for another one on March.

This page wasn’t actually a class on our weekend but was one taught by Flora @floramfarkas at the Haydock retreat. I was totally inspired by this page and a scraplift was definitely called for.

The roses were stamped with Versamark ink then painted with Hobbycraft pearlescent paints. I then fussy cut the roses and stuck them to the painted heart shape, most raised on foam dots. The rose was from this set on AliExpress

LGCG July Sketch

Here is the sketch I did for our crop last weekend and the page I made with the crop kit.

JULY 17 birds of a feather

The journalling explains that, as any mini owner will know, minis attract each other in car parks. On this occasion I returned to find Gertie’s twin parked next to her. She is a two-seater Mini Roadster and there aren’t many of those about.

Some recent scrapping

When we were away in Cornwall a couple of weeks ago I did a lot of scrapping – it amazed me just how much I could get done with so little equipment! LOL
