so it has taken me a while to do a quick, or i hope a quick write up but lot of photo’s,  on my weekend spent with Dina and Dyan in Florida, a retreat hosted by Michelle at the filled to the brim Everything Scrapbook & Stamps (http://everythingscrapbook store.

we practically filled on of the Dylusion Journals on the weekend but here are a few of my favourite pages

and i have wanted some of these stamps FOREVER!!!IMG_7965but one of my favourite projects of the weekend had to be my journal cover. i have never been brave enough to do anything to the covers and now i can not wait to attack them all. it helps that i used Dyan’s new line of paints to do it!!!

IMG_7966now the lovely ladies i was able to meet and play with all weekend;

the lovely and vibrant and oh so sharing Dyan. she opened up parts of our souls that needed spoken too


the oh so funny and talented Dina who made me think about why and how and it is okay to have my page be random but not randomIMG_7847my new friend Caroline who we shared each class and table with. and last but not least, one of my bestest moments of the weekend was meeting the lovely Ms. Marjie Kemper whom i have ‘known’ and followed for a very long time and finally  met!!
