At Scrappy Camp!


SCRAPPY CAMP
Its been lovely with 3 nights away.... and fabulous scrapping to hearts delight.
This is the seventh year this scrappy camp has been running, (twice a year) and I have not missed one of them!

Here's some peeks:
 Me and Cheryl

Our scrappy spots....  (there's four at our table)


So there's a chance to get lots of scrappy challenges done.....

Its all about this poster!
Added Criteria -

1pt = Garden photo/s
2pts = Flower cluster
3pts = A garden decoration ( garden gate )
Cut out the gate so it could be seen through with the photo behind.


Used some watercolour to extend the ground horizon past the photo onto the LO background.


 And some diecut doilies to extend the trees past the photos into the background as well.

(Purple Rain - by Prince) 
so used some of the lyrics
'reach our for something new'
Hannah receiving two yr 12 awards and starting a new year post college

'Chevrons'
Had this paper for years so it was really great to finally get to use it.   Threaded some seam binding through the chevron.
