2nd Day of Fun - what a day

This is a long blog, couldn't get onto blogger this afternoon, so ended up doing it at 1am in the morning.

I've taken photos of the classes I've done, as well as a few photos of the weekend, so I hope you enjoy seeing what the GoGo Getaway is all about.

Forgot to mention yesterday, found myself sitting opposite Rachel Elliott, Angie Woodall and Chloe (from my CJ team) both Rachel and Angie are two scrappers who's layouts I just love, so will hopefully be getting loading of tips, did say to Rachel not be be surprised if I just straigthforward scrap-lift from her work, and also said that I might even video her, now that I know how to do it with my camera - LOL.

So what with sitting next to Vicki, Sam and Sheena and then Rachel opposite, my scrapping style, should improve, well it should, shouldn't it?

So lets begin, these two layouts are the ones I did on Friday in Lisa class 'Find It' both layouts being 6" x 12" and with a vintage feel.

Woke up at 5 this morning, raring to go, updated my blog, quick shower and then down to the crop room, followed by Breakfast, with classes starting at 10am.

The Restaurant

my breakfast

I will apologise now for the quality of the photos, I'd taken them between each class and all the other things going on here (yes shopping was involved - LOL).

1st up was SJ - using some polka dot papers from Jillibean Soup, hand cut petals to form flowers, paint, buttons and ribbons.

Sorry not a very good photo of SJ, took in mid conversation - sorry SJ.

Then lunch,

On first inspection this looked like a Mushroom flan, which we throught was a bit strange being with the desserts, but it turned out to be a Banaoffee pie, which was just yummy !!!

A selection of the desserts.

followed by Shimelle Class which was using Cosmo Cricket boyfriend papers and chipboard alphabets.

The a break and Jane Dean classes, using Srassfras Lass - Sweet Marmalade papers, stickers, cards and a full sheet of Doodlebug alphabet stickers, this layout also included a small envelope which held a mini book for journalling (bottom right of the LO).

After another great meal, it was back to the class room for Laura class 'Date Night" which was a lovely desk top calender, using a bind-it-all - this involved alot of cutting, but the end result was well worth it. Sorry folks you will have to wait till Monday before I can upload.

Each and every class was full of inspiration, tips and new techniques, which is just what I wanted from the whole weekend. Each class kits included enough to complete the project and with loads of things to spare.

Coffee, Tea, cold drinks available 24/7, a wide variety of meals 3 times a day, a gorgeous shop with a lot of unusual products, great company, a comfortable room and the chance to relax and just enjoy being with like minded people.

It's now 1.30am on Sunday morning and so far the weekend has lived up to what I have come to expect from Scrapagogo, they have topped the fun, value and excitements of their June 09 Retreat and I'm looking forward to returning again in March 2010.

So a big, big thanks to Lorraine, Janice, Zoe and Kirsty and to all the DT Team you have all worked really hard to make this even better than last time. Thanks girls you rock.

Will be back on Monday to upload more photos.

Thanks for stopping by
