Sorry very dark photo taken Tuesday evening. I am finally unpacking from the retreat at the weekend. Not sure how many layouts I have done , there are definitely a few to be completed and I have LOADS of inspiration to carry on- shame I had to go back to work! The top page is from a wonderful class taught by the FAB Katherine Sutton . I promise to photograph properly at the weekend. The papers are from kaisercraft and the range is "Time Machine". I LOVE these papers! We did two pages in this kit and learnt how to gild with metallic flakes- fun but messy.
I bought lots of bits and pieces in the shop - my fav purchase was the BoBunny Calendar girl  papers.
 Here are few photos of the Wonderful Retreat At Stoke By Nayland run by A Trip down Memory Lane  

 Just some of the paper selection in one of the cropping rooms/shop

 Our table in another cropping room.

 We dressed up a bit for Halloween- Sarah even had contact lenses!

 I was going for the sultry look and NOT the Miserable look that came out!

 The classroom - we took 5 classes each with the option to buy more.

 There was a circular window in my room - this was the view ( it was a bit foggy)

 My bed - all mine!

Lovely room

 The bathroom even had a sparkly disco floor.

 If you would like to join in with the hop, pop over to see Julia who has all the info.

  3. Sparkly disco floor! Damn, wish I'd seen that before we did our bathroom.... ;-)
    That's a very posh retreat! Our crop was slightly more downhome than that but we enjoyed ourselves just as much. And I HOOTED at your sultry look, lolololol. If I tried something like that, I'd look slightly the worse for wear :-)

  6. Wow, you must have had such a great time! Look at that paper stash, whoa! I wouldn't have been able to complete any projects because I would have been stuck to those papers, probably licking them, LOL! Great layout on your desk - do show us a close next week! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #31

  10. I had trouble with the link too. It brought me to a blank page, but I clicked on the home link and got to your post.

    It looks like you had a lot of fun on your retreat! "Sultry" is hard to pull off, lol.
