We had a brilliant day at our August Scrapbooking Retreat yesterday in The Silver Bear Centre, Bawnboy in the County of Cavan. Even though the weather didn't live up to expectations it was warm with a few bits of sunshine. I don't think many of the scrappers noticed though because they hardly left their seats! It was a very productive day and everyone seemed to be getting loads done.
One of Julie's stunning LO's:
A sample of Linda's gorgeous cards:
The class was a 12" x 12" boy themed layout using the gorgeous Crate Paper Zoom Collection and the finished layouts looked amazing. The mini book in a CD tin class used the same papers and again the finished books and tins looked fantastic.
Even though we were there from early morning until after 6pm the hours flew by. I don't know how much tea and coffee we all drank but we got through about 3 litres of milk between 20 of us. I think I had about half a dozen cups myself!! That must've been what kept everyone going, that and the chocolate, buns and craic :-)
Many thanks to everyone who travelled from near and far to make the day so special. We had scrappers from Cavan, Kildare, Dublin, Louth, Galway, Belfast and Donegal and what a brilliant crafty bunch you all were. I hope I'll get to meet you all again soon. Thanks also to Linda K who brought along her shop packed with mini books and other goodies.
