I'm back from the retreat!

I am back from the Noosaville scrapbooking retreat organised by Queensland Scrapbooking Retreats. It was fantastic! The organiser, Ann, was wonderfully welcoming and it seems like she gets a pretty regular bunch to attend her retreats so there was a very friendly atmosphere. I created 7 layouts during the three days but I'll spread the posts out over the coming week.
Saturday morning we spent doing a class with Cathy Cafun. Cathy was a wonderfully patient teacher and we all learnt so many new techniques during the class. We got to use some lovely Graphic 45 papers, which I normally find too fussy for my style of scrapping so it was great to try something new. There is a lot of depth and texture to this LO and I really like all the gears.
There were also instructions to make this matching card. I still need to add a sentiment but thought I would leave that until I have a reason to use the card.

On Saturday night we had a '70's disco themed night. There are a couple of group photos which I'm waiting to have emailed though but until then here is one of me and my room-mate Chantelle.
