Scrap Camp was Awesome.

Well, it's over and I've come back to another full on week of life, but it was fantastic. Loved every minute of it - except the bit at 3am when I resorted to counting sheep to try and get to sleep!

I don't have much to show for my efforts, 3 layouts and a few cards. Basically I did what I was told to do (classes and challenges) and nothing more - so much for my intentions of getting christmas cards done. There's just something about a challenge, with a promise of a prize up for grabs, that gets me scrapping. Our table took the challenges very seriously of course - being so practiced in challenges as we are.

Loved meeting up with my imaginary friends - Kelly, Ilka, Steph, Delys , Kirsty and Megan from the DT at Scrapbook Essentials, and others too - sorry if I've missed your name off the list. Kelly is taller in real life and Delys is actually Deleese not Delis!

The Joshua layout is Faye's class, I stuck pretty much to the instructions on this one - the words at the bottom I copied off Kelly (Thanks Kell)

Little Miss Independent was a one hour challenge - had to have doodling and hand writing. One hour was a big challenge for me and some of that doodling happened after the layouts had been judged.

And the Christmas one - another challenge which I spent way too much time messing around with.

Nic's class was great too - but I'm not showing you that cause it will be a christmas present for someone. Not sure who yet!

As I said before I loved every minute of camp - only wish it had been longer!

We called in to Wanganui on the way home to see Grandad. He's looking very old - but then I guess he is! The kids kept their distance a bit - I guess we don't see him often enough, but I did managed to bribe them so we could get a photo.

I'm off to the zoo tomorrow - provided the weather behaves itself. Alexander will be disapointed if it gets cancelled. So if you've got sun please send it to Wellington tomorrow!

Thanks for sharing that update. Loved reading about your time at Scrap camp. Love those layouts! Stunning! I can certainly relate to great grandparents and children keeping thier distance! I remember feeling that way too with my great grandparents. Have fun at the zoo.

Sounds like you had a great time - the LOs are lovely.

Remember the Christmas card you made with chipboard parcels? Well, I took your idea and ran with it, hope you don't mind - check out my blog to see what I've done, hope you'll approve

It was so great to meet you at scrap camp Bev! Looking forward to the next time. The LO's look even better IRL! And did you know she won a price for the Little Miss - a 1 hour challenge. It looked so good you'd never guess it was a 1 hour effort!

Gorgeous layouts Beverley!! I know what you mean about Grandparents, my grandad used to poke all of us grandkids in the chest - he was SCARY!!
