Sisters of the Slipperhood Retreat 2016

 
a long time, since I have used this blog but it's about time for me to start it up again...
 
What better way than to update you on my craft these last two years, which I can tell you has been very lacking. 2016 was a year full of anticipation as we were planning and building a house, boxes of craft were packed ready to move for months at a time.
 
However come September 2016, I went away with 4 gorgeous girls to the Blue Mountains.
 
 
front row left to right, me, Lizzy, Jo, back row left to right, Cheryl, Mary
 
 These beauties are amazing company, inspiration and soul sisters.
 
During our retreat we decided to catch photo of our slippers for artist effect and we came up with our name, firstly I said it was a picture of the slippers of our sisterhood and then ones of the girls said we were 'Sisters of the Slipperhood.'  
 
 
 
Here are just a few of the pieces I worked on this weekend away,
 


'You are everything that is bright & beautiful in this world'
Esther during Summer 2016
 
Jo's challenge for a bright layout based on a mood board
I think I did quite well with the colours :)
 
 
'Come just as you are to me, I will love you unconditionally...'
Our wedding day, 01.02.15.
These are the song lyrics from the day, I walked down the aisle too, so I used an embossed music note background paper.
 
Mary's Challenge to use song lyrics in a layout.
 
 
 'Timeless Memories'
 
A selection of photos from our day.
 
Lizzy's challenge to use 5 photos or more on a layout.
 
 
 
A couple of the cards I made,
 
for Cheryl's challenge to make some vintage cards.
 
I haven't posted a blog in a long time, so I am starting to get the hang of it again for something coming soon.
 
Take Care
