Retreating this weekend!

Hi everyone,
Hope you have all been well in your part of this big, wide world!
Can you believe it's almost April already? How time flies.

Have you been or done anything exciting lately? I went on my very first Ghost Tour with some friends recently and wow...it was amazing! Even the extremely skeptical in the group must have been awestruck at some of the experiences we had. The tour was in a beautiful old house with servants quarters and breathtaking gardens, although you couldn't really see them in the dark. I'll definitely be doing another tour in the near future!

I've been busy in my little craft room making things for my market stall in between photo shoots and daily life so it's been pretty hectic as usual around here.
I just have to share this ballet point shoe I made for market but I love it that much I'm contemplating keeping it for me. I think it would look gorgeous in my craft room :)

I'm off on a scrapbooking Retreat this weekend with my retreat partner in crime, Chrissy, and let me tell you...this break couldn't have come at a better time!
It's a Retreat neither of us have been too before and I'm looking really forward to the views I've been told this place has to offer. We are off to Stanwell Tops Conference Centre this time.

Just to get my mojo flowing before Retreat I pulled out my new Faber Castell Gelatos that I've had sitting around for the best part of 8 weeks before I even touched them. I just had to have them before Retreat!
So I got out some cardstock, Gesso and the Gelatos and OMG...I am IN LOVE!!
Gesso and Gelatos are my new best friend! Love the effect it has!
Here's a layout I finished using both on the weekend. I'm entering it in this month's Scrap the Boys Challenge:

LOVE that no matter what...each and every background you create will be unique!

I've also had an unfinished layout sitting here since LAST YEAR! Can you believe that?? I just never got around to finishing it so I got stuck into that and now it's off my desk and in a folder. Here it is:

Really love the colours in Merry Go Round...so soft and pretty.

Well that's it from me for now. I'm off to help my son do something with his car *groan* then start packing for this weekends Retreat.

Chat soon and take care,
Sharryn xx
