Apologies for being a little absent lately - I recently spent a month in Europe on a family holiday and then was home for only 2 weeks before I headed off to San Francisco to teach at the very first La-La Land Crafts Retreat. I was honoured to have been asked and had a blast with the LLLC Bosses Irina and Eric and my fellow team-mates Sandie Dunne and Suzanne Kohler.
I just wanted to share a little of what went on and the projects I created for the retreat. We certainly kept the ladies busy with classes and workshops.
This first project was a little waterfall album I created - I hope the video to my left gives you an idea of what it looked like on the inside - it seems to be running a little fast. Oh woe is me with technology - LOL
I also created this Christmas Banner using lots of the fabulous dies from La-La Land and I loved seeing how some of the ladies twisted the design to make it their own.
We also had an amazing location for our retreat - right on the ocean - this was the view from my room.
And then I designed a couple of quick projects using dies only - these were a lot of fun to play with and I have to thank my darling husband for weeding out all the little pieces from all the die-cuts I did for the 120 kits I took with me - it was also much appreciated by the ladies.
And for our "Steampunk" themed event Eric and Irina designed a fabulous top hat kit and stand that we had fun decorating up as samples for the retreat. The ladies had a couple of days to decorate theirs and we had a competition for the best dressed hats - they did some GORGEOUS things with these and it was a heap of fun!
And so the sun set on our first retreat - but it was such a success we are all looking forward to next year already!
