Where did the week go?

Anyone else feel like the week has just flown by? We had a big storm on the Island yesterday and we were prepared for chaos but ended up we didn't see much. Thank goodness because parts of the Island were without power all day.
Super busy week, I am teaching at an event this weekend on Crofton BC. Treasured Memories is hosting their annual scrapbook retreat and I am teaching 3 different classes. I was supposed to go for the entire weekend to get a little fun stuff done foe myself but since my parents accident I wasn't able to go for the whole 4 days. Anyways, I've been busy putting my kits together and I am very excited. I'll post pics next week.
I am also in the process of doing Karen Grunberg's Finding your way class on Big Picture Scrapbooking. As part of the class we are encouraged to do a layout a day for 30 days. So far I have managed except yesterday. So I have to make it up tonight : )
Here are a few that I have accomplished:
This first layout is for the weekly sketch challenge over at Studio Calico. I used one of my older SC kits (I think it was august???)

This pretty one is for the sketch challenge at Bluemoon scrapbooking (one of my favourite online stores). I used Pink Paislee Sweetness, and painted all of the flowers with Chandelier Glimmer Glam.

and this last one... well it was supposed to be for Project 12 February but when I went back to post it I saw that it was a completely different sketch than the one I used. I did use a Becky Fleck sketch but I have no idea where I got it. So I'm not even going to bother showing you the real february sketch because my layout looks absolutely nothing like it ; ) See this is the kind of week I've been having. Okay just figured out my mistake... it was last years Feb sketch. Ugh! I need to pay more attention to detail. Oh well I got my Feb layout done!!!
Just a reminder that new challenges are up at both Design Dollies and These are a few of my favourite things. So please go check them out because there are some pretty fabulous prizes up for grabs!!!!

  3. How fun to have a crafting retreat!!! I've been wanting to do something like that for a while!! We have lost so many of our scrapbook stores around here. I totally miss the feel. Have lots of fun!!!

  4. Fast week but beautiful scrapping! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  5. These are fab, Andrea!
    I hope everything is going well on your craft weekend.

  6. Beautiful layouts! And don't feel bad about the February sketch...I thought the same thing when I saw Davinie's post! Guess we're both a year behind, lol!

  7. It's all about documenting your life so it doesn't matter what sketch you do. You don't even have to use a sketch. I love the color palette and your use of the pompom trim. I also like the fun design and the butteflies on your SC challenge layout. :)
