I managed six pages which is seriously fast scrapping for me! Some ladies managed 15+ in the same amount of time. Perhaps they spent less time chatting/eating/drinking/ogling other people's supplies? Perhaps they were better prepared beforehand?
For my retreat preparation I had printed out a selection of holiday snaps in various sizes and jotted down some page ideas for some of them. I had also put together a couple of Counterfeit/page kits but somehow once I'd selected these two photos of contrasting verdigris sculptures, it was more appropriate to grab my scraps bag to make my layout:
The journalling reminds me that, despite being the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen's self-contained centre was easy to walk around as it was full of parks and cyclists, keeping the motorised traffic sparse and calm!
An added benefit of scrapping with friends (apart from the shared chocolate) is that if you need a certain something, someone will surely lend/give it to you. While I was cutting my title with my Sizzix Go Go Boots dies, left out to share on the "tools" table at the weekend retreat, I had a chance to browse through a friend's copious die collection and found the perfect flower to add to my page! Thanks Jayne :-)
The page is based on this month's sketch over at Sarah's Cards and coincidentally conforms to a monochromatic challenge over at The Studio - haven't played along there for a while!
