on retreat ...

so I went to a crafting retreat, hosted by my dear friend Sue.  all of my scrap friends were able to attend so it was an absolute hoot!

The strange thing, is that me ... who takes photos by the millions ... actually forgot to take many pictures ... but i did take a few!

I designed and taught a mini album class, and forgot to take photos ... it was cool, and somewhat masculine ... but i have it locked away in my head so at least i have that!

I designed this fab little christmas bunting class with my friend Sue, and I taught the class ... it was loads of fun! The products are all Stampin Up ... their new scalloped tulle is so easy and fun to play with!

My other friend Sue, and Iris both took the class!  It was fab to have friends in the room!!!

Sue and I also designed and taught this fab tag class ... it was my kind of fun, all messy and grungy!
 i created this little christmas house for the display table.
 The wreath is made from satin ribbon that has been "fringed" and heated so that bits of it melt.
 An easy peasy card for the display table ... punched out flocked velvet acetate sheet that is folded for dimension.

 I made lots of these little vintage style paper ornaments for the christmas tree!

A gathered fabric tree!  Stampin Up has some very cool fabrics and trim, loved this sweater trim!

and finally i made this little house for display ... i think i need to make a whole village of these!

Diane and I win the 50/50 ... even Sue is amazed!!!  what a hoot!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
