I have some exciting news. Manor House Creations is sponsoring a new scrapping retreat! It's coming up in October and I'll be there as part of the teaching team. I'll be doing Make and Takes, while Karen Shady, Beck Beattie and Trudi Harrison will be taking classes.
I've been to see the venue - it's terrific. It's near Bacchus Marsh and is set in a gorgeous rural setting. The accommodation is basic but comfy, there is plenty of scrapping space and you won't have to cook or look after anyone but yourself all weekend! We have got plenty of great ideas to make sure you have a great time. This is going to be so much fun!
Here's a flyer.
Now, seeing we're talking Manor House Creations, here's a recent layout I made featuring their drop-dead-gorgeous flowers.
The paper is Prima and I love it! The banner is cut from one of the Prima sheets then I added the decorative trim around the edges of each flag. I made use of the bird near the top left corner and made it look like it's carrying the string of the banner in its beak.
Here's a close up of the main flower cluster.
I've used five different Manor House flowers here - Rue (watermelon), Wild Rose (sherbet), glitter mini roses (pink), Hayley (white) and Meadows. I've left the wire stems on some of the flowers and twisted them around a small paintbrush to create tendrils.
I hope you're inspired to find a beautiful friend or family member and make a memorable page about them!
Bye for now.
