Scrapbook Weekend




I got to go away for a free scrapbook weekend this past weekend. My friend, Kristina, won a weekend for four at this new place in the little town of Granada, MN. The place was a converted church and it was beautiful. It was spacious and had all of the amenities you could hope for. I didn't get near the amount of things done that I wanted to but do we ever?

This is one of the pages I completed this weekend. I have a boatload of prima flowers that I left at home. I had to get creative with what was at hand. I created the layered flowers using a combination of punches, diecuts, bling and brads. I was pleased with how they turned out. The second picture is a close up of the layered flowers. The green piece is a cardstock overlay by Creative Imaginations. The lettering is from whatever diecut system the scrapbook retreat had on hand. The ribbon is this yummy grosgrain ribbon from a set called Sassy tubular ribbon from the Coconut Scrapbook shop. The journaling piece has the edge punched with the new Stampin' Up! scallop edge punch.
