now...cause i have been slack

anywhoooo...just a few layouts from the Long Point retreat...(not too many..and those who know me, know seven is a huge amount for me from a retreat these days!..I have too much fun, laughing, chatting and catching up to scrap)
And so here they no particular order....All contain WOW chipboard

 This is a photo of Tom and Keke..I have used a Hambley screen print as a overlay with lots of stitching. These two were born on the same day, kelly is toms godmum and sometimes, we often think he is her kid, they are very alike. I have used a WOW chip circle and butterfly with as usual the old fav....Tim Holtz Vintage photo ink.

 Another photo of new baby girl, Maddison. Here I have used a WOW flourish frame and a few of the chipboard doves, simply inked and added a Prima stem. ( as they say, when in doubt..add Prima!)

 A quickie that was actually done at the end of retreat ( and yes i know the buttons are naked, this shall be fixed as soon i finish typing)....Its a photo of my fav drink..purple Vok. I have added a WOW owl and flouirsh, bit of ink and coloured the owls belly with texta and then glossy accents.

 Whooooo Love you...little Miss Ali, how fast this angel is growing. Heres I have added a WOW flourish, sprayed white with Mr Hueys mist ( love their coverage on chip), and a Owl, whom i coloured in and then glossy accented.

 ...and talking of angels...heres my Olivia. This page was our 45 min challenge at the retreat, funny how a time limit challenge can make you work quicker These chipboard roses from WOW come in 2 pieces, the bottom solid piece, i have sprayed with a grey glimmermist and the top are hueys red mist. I love this effect especially with the pearls. Heres a little close up.

 These two page are using Bellas new 'paper girl' range. they are fun and bright and for obvious reason make me do the 2 princess above dancing in the garden, and the beautiful photo of Maddy in the layout below.

 A quick layout using the Bella new 'paper boy' range, of Tom when he was about 3 yrs old. A fun thing i like to do sometimes is to grab some old photos of years go by and scrap the darling little son i used to have....Have i mentioned yet how 11 is a painful age!!! lol

This page of baby Maddison is a cute one of her playing peek a boo under a hood. Lots and lots of ink all over this page to make it look a wee bit vintage. Some handmade roses and a WOW chipboard circle with flourish and small name plate. These name plates are so delicate and pretty, they make it easy to layer some chip for effect.

This last layout has already made its way to the internet via the WOW blog, but i really like it, so i will share it here too. Its the newest 12x12 frames from WOW, simply inked on top of a Studio Calico paper and some handmade an distressed roses on a WOW chipboard flourish....and a small photo of Miss Ali that I snapped of her without her knowing ( you get some lovely shots like that) at Toms birthday party.

So that will have to do for now....hope you enjoyed passing by
I am off to retreat with Scrap Girls this weekend to hopefully I may have a few layouts to share on my return!! ( but dont hold your breath...we do a lot of chatting when we are together)

Cheers happy
