I was recently invited to attend a scrapbook retreat.
It was a little disorienting to have a whole Saturday to myself without laundry or pleas from the kiddo and husband to watch something other than HGTV.
The answer is usually "No we cannot. I must watch this episode of Fixer Upper with the Mid Century modern house for the 5th time."
But I digress.
The retreat space was gorgeous with plenty space to spread out on. I got to spend 10 or so luxurious hours of pure paper cutting time.
It was awesome. So, this happened:
I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I saw that Maggie Holmes Shine collection paper. Sometimes that happens and it's great.
Other times I find myself chasing an idea around a page for hours which must be why there are scrapbook retreats. That and so you can make friends who will encourage obsessive behaviors such as matching your paper color to the clothes the people in your photos are wearing.
Which I refuse to do because I would never get a page done.
Explaining this to the husband almost made his eyes fall out from all the rolling. And the kiddo was super mad I left for a whole Saturday so it's gonna be a long while before I can escape again.
For these pages I used the following Flair sets:
Hope you have a GREAT Thanksgiving weekend.
Be merry, be thankful, be CAREFUL driving home and try not to trample anyone during your Black Friday escapades.
