While I was gone

Oh man, I just got back from a fun retreat! It was the Rusty Pickle retreat and I got to meet most of the rest of the DT and pickle workers in real life...I really had a blast! We also got to do all the classes that Rusty Pickle will be teaching throughout the year. I'll try to post some pictures later. First I need to post several things for while I was gone. :)

This week's challenge at Scrap and Stamp was to scrap your spouse or significant other, and of course you need to have stamping on your work. Here is what I did for the challenge:

I used a lot of different stuff on this layout, but I wanted to point out that those family labels are from Tattered Angels. I sprayed them with glimmer mist. That swirl is also from Tattered Angels, it is one of the Glimmer Glass pieces. That stamp is from Stampin' Up! It's one of those stamp sets that I just couldn't part with when I was selling all my SU stamps. :)

And then the challenge at SSCC was to create a shadowbox card. You can find more information on the challenge and shadowbox cards here. Here is what I made for the challenge:

Those papers are all from Pink Paislee, aren't they just gorgeous! That awesome stamp is a Gillian Roberts stamp that I just had to get after seeing it on someone else's blog. :)

And you may have saw the post for the Thankful for Friends of Faith blog hop that I had here on my own blog. But I also made a card for the SSCC blog and this hop. Here is that card:

Those papers are from Pebbles and the stamp is from Unity. :)

I have a lot more to show you, but I think I will do it in another post. :)

For now, let me leave you with the sketch for this week.

And here is what Katrina did with the sketch:

I will back tomorrow with another long post. :)
