GoGo Getaway!

So this time last week I was at Scrapagogo's gogogetaway for a weekend of fun! I had a lot of laughs with the girls, stayed up late & woke early, scrapped lots and took not a single photo!

I was nowhere near as productive as Leanne or Laura with their super duper page kits, but I am pleased with what I did do.

This layout is on yummy dotted swiss cardstock, which I think Shimelle managed to convert many people to over the course of the weekend! Since making this layout I have realised that this is in fact not a tram, it is a cable car d'oh! Still, I don't mind cos it's pretty and i like it, and 'san fran cable car love' does not have quite the same ring to it!

I used Leanne's gorgeous Martha Stewart butterfly punch to make little butterflies from some yummy Hambly overlay and scattered them accross my layout - prettiness!

My favourite photo from my cousins wedding in March this year, with more butterflies!

This layout was Fiona's class on the Saturday, which was using Pink Paislee fascinating range - I wasn't completely sold on the papers at first but I like the finished result. I totally stole the little dots on the letters idea from Laura and SJ next to me!

Yet more butterflies here (I think I used them on 95% of my layouts this weekend). Some funny photos of me and him from Bhav and Neema's wedding in April this year. I used some of the yummy new Scenic route and gorgeous Prima Scribbles.

And finally, the much anticipated new Cosmo Cricket Early Bird papers - perfect for the vintage look! This is an old photo of me from 1989. The layout tells the story of the t-shirt, I modelled it for the BA in flight catalogue lol! I used lots of SJ's fab journalling spots (which can be found here) on this layout and embellished them with some stickles. Of course, the almost obligatory butterfly on this page too!

I have a few more partly finished pages to share (butterfly count: 2/3 pages) when they get completed, and also Shimelle's mini book which I absolutely adore (partly because it's scattered with butterflies!) and have almost finished.
I apologies for the somewhat butterfly heavy post lol!
Working the twighlight shift this weekend, time for some lunch and then watching the beginning of the tennis before I have to leave for work. Here's hoping no-one is ill and I can watch Murray win!
