I created this layout at the Scrapbook Fantasies Retreat last weekend. This was the 10th Retreat I have hosted and by far the best. The ladies who attended were so lovely, kind and creative. They have truely changed my life and helped me to regain a lot of confidence. Thanks to their inspiration I really enjoyed the creative process of “Creating for the Pleasure of Creating” with this particular layout.
I haven’t done this for quite a while, and as most of you know the reasons are mostly business related. So I have some good news…and not just that my Creativity is returning to normal…yes we are a step closer to having a new home for Scrapbook Fantasies, however I can’t share the location, date or details just yet. Rest assured that I will post the good news here as soon as I can.
Anyway onto my layout, some details and a couple of close-ups.
