Retreat Weekend...

I spent the past weekend with a couple of friends at a scrapbooking retreat and I had a fantastic time. I did not get all that much done but it's all about having fun, making new friends and making memories. I did manage to do a layout for a sketch challenge site I found it is called Sketchbook 365 and it was a great sketch from Morag Cutts
and here is my take on this sketch...


This month's WWU over at ScrapFit focuses on FUSSY CUTTING. All you have to do is create a layout, card or other project that has some FUSSY CUTTING on it. This means we take patterned paper and cut out flowers, leaves, vines or any other design that you'd like to use. That's all you have to for this challenge. It has to be more than just a circle or square...cut out something with detail (hence the term "fussy"...hehe!) Have fun with it! You have until Friday, May 18th to play along. ScrapFit will announce the winner on May 19th. If you win, we will feature you in our Guest FITGirl Spotlight on May 26th! Remember, you can also have another chance to win by playing along with our Step Class, which is coming up on May 8th. Don't miss it! Lasting Memories challenge....We want to see METAL on those layouts!! Whether you use a metal embellishment, metallic ink/chalk/paper - we can't wait to see what you create this week!! Suzanne is hosting our giveaway this week and one lucky winner will win a $10 Michaels gift certificate! BIG thank you to Suzanne!!
Need some help? Here's an awesome sketch from Pagemaps if you'd like to try it!! Jen L is the winner last week if you could email me at Now on to share my example for this weeks challenge...
Have a wonderful day!!
