Escape 2 Create :) :) :)

Hello Hello :)

I have been having a pretty fabulous time with retreating and then going to Darwin, but that is another post :). 2 Weekends ago I went to the awwwwwesomest retreat Escape 2 Create! It really is just the BEST!!! Amanda Meredith and Sue have got organising the Perfect Retreat down to a fine art!!!!

I did do a lot of creating at the retreat, but not a lot of finished projects as such, I did a lot of arty experimenting, and created lots of 'backgrounds' for possible future projects :) :) :)

These are a couple that I did complete :)

I created this layout for the May 123 Challenge This is sadly my last contribution as part of the Design Team :( :( :( I have been participating in this amazing challenge site from the very first! as a newly scrapper right thru! I was so very honoured to be selected to join the DT! Thank you So so Very much Charm!!!!!

 The backgrounds for 'small pleasures' and 'E' were inspired by the amazing Kate Mason whose canvas class I took whilst on Retreat!
