Stolen Moments Inn and My Crafty Scrapper Friends

I had the most wonderful time this weekend at the retreat with my friends. We were in the quiet town of Maypearl where we cropped and created until 4 or 5 every morning. We took a little nap and started creating again. These are two of the LOs that I love. The first one is based on a sketch from the Getting Sketchy Site. I used a little Basic Grey here. I also used the new little misters with some pearl and a little ink to color these letters and swirls. They are really sparkley! Of course the stickles were used liberally!

The funny story is that my granny carried this cake across Texas on her lap and bought me a beautiful baby doll and all I wanted was the lollipop!

The next LO is my favorite of all time. It is of my Aunt Carolyn. She looks happy and beautiful! I made this LO all out of Studio 45. I love this line. I layered the paper on chip board. The dotted paper is covered with red stickles and dotted with black. The wings are stamped and the whole thing is on bazzil bling. The cherry tag says "fun."
After this weekend, I feel like I have my mojo back!

I haven't really had the opportunity to get to know you and we kind of sat on opposite sides of the room but I had a really good time at the retreat this weekend and I'm grateful that I got to know you a little better. I loved the layout of your aunt, it was so cool!!

sweet brook. Im so delighted that finally your endocrinologist haspointed you in the right direction. And whilst we celebrate at our new chapters in our life, it is so very hard to just pretend that the othe chapters didnt exist. And nobody will realy ever congratulate us and nobody will know the amoungt of tears we cry - we just soldier on and continually be judged for being over protective mommies.
So congratulations my sweet friend for being a fightig momma. you deserve lots of special mummy awards and I think Im going to make a badge and pass it round on my blog rolls - you get it first xx
