Paper Symphony Spring Break

Last weekend was the Paper Symphony Spring Break Scrapbooking Retreat. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to go. It had been 4 1/2 weeks since Scotts operation & he had a wisdom tooth pulled out on Friday! He was in agony & ended up going to ED for some voltarin on top of his Codine & panadol. He felt much better after that & said I could still go away. Aint he lovely! I really needed the break. The retreat was in Waves Motel in Orewa. I was an hour or so late because we had to wait for the pharmacy to open so Scott could fill his perscription. It was a nice small group of only 8 ladies (including me) & the tables were set up so we could all talk & socialise.
First class was by Melissa on Saturday morning. Here is mine:
I love the ribbon frill & had my first go at using alchol inks on the flowers & butterfly. I also found my Marrakech stickers were the right colour too! We made up some glimmer mist from ink & perfect pearl to spray the Buzz & Bloom corners with. I love the alchol inks, so much fun! I had to get some!!!!!! The picture is of my 'Year 0" class. I drew a cirle with kindy glitz around me cos I don't know anything else about that school, I was not there for long.

I took all the kids school class photos I have lying around cos I have been a bit stumped on how to scrap them, so that was my goal for the weekend. So I didn't do Janines class on Sunday, but took kit home & will upload it when I am done. I am very pleased with getting the kids 2009 school photos done, 1 double LO for Nicola & a single for Daniel. I used my favourite Kaiser Bohemian paper (think I only have 1 or 2 sheets left :-(
