Retreat Weekend

This weekend I was able to take off to Michelle's Crop n' Shed for a scrapbook retreat weekend.  It was fabulous!  It was so nice to get away with some of my best friends to scrapbook, watch movies, eat lots of junk food and have so many laughs your sides hurt!  These are the lovely ladies I spent the weekend with.  
We are officially known as the Creme De La Croppers.  We're not all represented in this pic (there are 11 of us!) and we have been croppin together for about 10 years.  Each cropper is assigned a host month and this month was mine.  I gave everyone who came an Easter Basket full of goodies and a card-just to say thanks for coming out. 
Easter Basket for Creme De La Croppers
As you can see, I am still making the rosettes..they are just so cute and easy to make!  The baskets are made with an 12x 12 piece of card stock.  Check out Cut Card stock  for an easy tutorial.  Of course I used Close To My Heart Papers.  

After everyone arrived it was time to get busy.  I worked with CTMH's  Mayberry paper pack.  This paper pack is hard to resist.  The colors are fun, funky and fabulous!  It definitely makes me think of spring.  Here is a Flower Pot Card I made using it.  See what I mean! 

I also used the pack to put together my sweet Ella's Birthday Layout
For the title, I used the Pennant Alphabet  set to make the "its your day" flags and the Poster Board set to create "bday girl".  I absolutely loved working with Trellis !  Look at all the beautiful flowers and butterflies on this layout.

Well, I hope you've enjoyed looking at my artwork.  I certainly enjoyed creating it.  Until next time.

  5. Beautiful work Becca. I am so glad I ordered this paper pack. It was pretty far down my list of favorites, but after looking at all the beautiful things you've made with it, and after seeing Terry's card, I really, really like it.
