Getting to Know You - Gogo June Getaway

In June will be attending my 1st Scrapagogo Retreat - something I'm really looking forward to, even though I've been on 2 retreats already, it will be good to see what else other people offer. I've even booked myself onto a photography workshop with Cheryl Johnson (Scrapbook Inspriations), who will be their as well, along with Shimelle Lane, Jane Dean & Mary Anne Walters. I've done a few of Shimelle classes at the retreat I've been too previously, so do other will be fun.

Lorraine & Janice have put everyone who is going into teams - my team name is "Apple-tini" and I'm with my friend Sam who is a Scrapagogo DT member, so if nothing else we will have a laugh together.

Part of the "build up" to the Retreat is to create a layout introducing yourself to others. so this is my take on the challenge.

The Challenge was to use the colours, orange, green and yellow (Scrapagogo colours), and do 5 points describing yourself.

Used Crate Paper - Lemongrass, yellow buttons, yellow stitching, American Craft Thickers.

The photo was taken by one of my neighbours when we went to Hatton County World, Warwick last year.

Stitching - and the orange circle strip - are from the new design from Bazzill with an edge packs.

Decided to use arrow for my journalling: Family Life, Bubbly, Fun Loving, Creative, Socialble.

Wanted to incorporate flowers on my page, and I seen other layout with handmade ones, so here are mine, used the scalloped nestabilities and scraps of the lemongrass papers with yellow button glued to the centre.
I'm really pleased how this has turned out, hope you like.
Back soon with some layouts I've done with my March kit and Mothers Day cards.
