I m back!!! and I ve had the best weekend of my life. Center Parks might not be my ideal holiday destination but it was perfect for our weekend away. The girls were a scream ( LITERALLY!!!) and it was so hard to believe that we never met as we just clicked instantly. Our lodge was beautifully situated this was the view from the patio, we had lovely neighbours as well which were only a little walk away ( in fact I was still in my pj s taking those photos. )

Back to those girls I can safely say that I have not laughed as hard in my entire life. I just want to thank each and every one of them for a fab weekend. So THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH Pat, Leigh, Cherry, Tracey and Bev. You are the BEST!!!! Mwahh...

Sorry for not being able to upload like promised, but of course I ve got there on Friday only to quickly realise that there was no Internet on the site apart from a Internet cafe that looked quite busy every time I went past it. My latest tutorial is now up and those are the cards I ve made using the different types of scallops. First card I ve made it was for Leigh ready to be handed over along with her goodie bag( we all made goodie bags that we swapped at Center Parks) and I ve included a SU scrapping kit ( it was the Secret Garden kit my favorite) so I ve used the same for the card.
A bit of a funny photo as it was taken under the forest canopy at CP so the lighting was not good.
Second one was made using a fab combo, Bashful Blue, Choc. Chip and Kraft card stock with a bit of Always Artichoke for the grass.I ve used the cute little snail from Unfrogettable ( so cute) and the special friend sentiment was stamped using the Daily flexible phrases set. The Kraft card stock was stamped with the canvas background in Versamark ink.
For my third card I ve used the beautiful hostess set * Oh so Lovely* and one of my most used combos, Cert. celery, Real Red and Whisper white.
I ve used a mixture of water colouring crayons and markers to colour my bloom. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the tutorial. Hugs Monica xxxx
