Anna's first class

At the Retreat I did both classes led by Anna. The first class on the Saturday morning was a layout using a sketch as the basis. How did you guess that I would have done this one? Would the fact that it was based on a sketch be a bit of a giveaway lol! Anyway, Anna gave us a picture of the sketch and then explained how to build up from the sketch and do more than just the basics.
We used Nikki Sivils Flaming Butterfly range of papers and ended up with this ...
I love how layered the layout has become from just being a flat sketch and I am trying to do this more now in my own layouts. (Bit cross about the journalling as I spelt the name of the gardens wrong, but if I tried to change it, it would make a mess!).

Had a lovely time on my birthday yesterday - Hugh gave me a Big Shot which I had been hankering after! Also a load of embossing folders. Ben gave me a lovely handbag and Penny the Alice in Wonderland DVD and some shower gel and body lotion. I had quite a few other lovely presents too, but need to get the camera out and get snapping! Celebrating again tomorrow with my extended family, which I am really looking forward to.
