Retreat Layouts Part 1

As promised I am sharing the layouts I did at Kylies Scrapgirls Retreat...

We were given a challenge. I LIKE challenges : ). We were given 45 minutes to complete a layout from start to finish. I had NO idea how long I actually spend on a layout. They would call out 30 minutes, 20, 15, 10. When they said 15 I was like OH MY GOSH. It took me by surprise. I had actually scraped a solid 45 minutes on this layout and under pressure. I don't IRL have time to spend 45 minutes doing a layout! They were judged and the winner received a $25 gift voucher from the shop. I WON!!!! I bought myself x2 clear stamp sets and an embellishment.

This one took me a LONG time to put together - I had been putting this in the to hard basket for months. I was so proud when I did finish because
1. I used what I had and did not buy anything
2. I completed it!!!!

We were also given a challenge pack of papers etc. The colour suited the colour in Oliver's hair so I gave it a go. I also submitted it into the challenge layout competition. There were only two of us using this kit and I lost (lol). BUT I felt like I had won - I used what I had and I had completed it.

You are very clever ...I am hopeless at this sort of thing I have decided to keep a scrap journal type of thing it isn't nearly as beautiful as your lovely pages.
