I loved the colour palate for this challenge. I chose a photo of my formal as the colour of my dress went beautifully. I was recently at my mums going through some photos and found this photo of my grandma and I on my formal night that I didn't realised existed, a pleasant surprise. I picked four papers and three Lindy's Stamp Gang mists; Merry Go Round Green, Tilt a Wheel Teal and French Lilac Violet. I used a left over plastic packet from die cuts, sprayed the mist and water the rubbed it on my page, this gave a nice smooth water colour effect, then of course some flicking. I also used the mist to colour my title and flowers. Here is the result.
Here is the challenge from Lindy's Stamp Gang May Colour Challenge.
At Scrapbook Fantasies Autumn retreat my friend Joanna (Mad Cook Creates) gave myself and two friends a pack of old papers and challenged me to create a page using only what was in the pack and mist. I have used the paper to complete Scrap Our Stash Tic Tac Toe Stash Challenge. I chose; journal card, the colour yellow, and 3+ patterned paper. I put what I'd learnt in the morning class in action straight away, creating mini embelishments for my page. Here is my page featuring a photo of my mum thirty years ago, love the glasses ;)
With the same paper pack Joanne (Mad Cook Creates) myself and our two friends came up with very different pages and I love them all. I absolutely love hanging out and creating with such amazing and talented friends.
Here is Joanne's page. Hope over to her blog Mad Cook Creates to see more of her awesome work.

Scrapbook Fantasies Saturday Retreat Class was out of the norm, creating mini embelishments to use on pages, cards or gift tags. I was aprehensive at first but by the end I was creating my own designs and enjoying myself. Here are my minis...
Here are Alicia Redshaw's minis...
Love love love Scrapbook Fantasies Retreat, creative energy, fabulous friends and good food. The ladies started at 9am Friday, I joined them at 4pm when I finished work. Alicia Redshaw's class was absolutely stunning. I used a photo of my grandmas wedding. Here is my page (lots and lots of fussy cutting).
Here are some close ups.

Scrapbook Fantasies Weekly Inspiration Challenge #17 is white only. Wow! The design team really threw us a curve ball here, this was definitely a challenge and out of my comfort zone. I went in with a plan for the background of embossed shapes and then just went crazy with die cutting and finding white embellishments. I'm glad I did it at Super Saturday crop night where I had others to bounce off when it came to putting it together otherwise if I was at home I think I would have thrown it the towel. I got there in the end and here is the result (photo makes some of the flowers look a bit yellow, which they aren't, sorry I couldn't work out how to fix this).
Here are some close ups.
Scrapbook Fantasies Weekly Inspiration Challenge #18 is circles. I chose photos from my friend Kathryn's baby shower. I framed the page and gave it to her for her 30th birthday.
