A Scrapbooking Swewi

This is the place where I share my creations!

The retreat is over

Posted by swewi on April 1, 2010

Does anyone know how long it takes to recover from a weekend full of laughing, talking, shopping, teaching, eating (mostly M&M’s), a little bit of creating and almost no sleep? I came  home around 2.30am on Monday, today is Thursday, and I still feel like I’ve been hit by a bus. I guess the fact that I have slept very little the last few weeks combined with a busload of deadlines might add some of the zombie state I’m in too.

I also got some time to see the beautiful Christchurch who showed off by being very hot and sunny, so I had a fantastic weekend!!!

Anyway, the Scrappin’ Patch retreat was a lot of fun, and I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone and anyone who was involved. Let’s do that again, shall we??

I wasn’t very productive, and most of what I did I can’t show, but I have ONE LO to share today. It’s made from a Pencil Lines sketch, using Prima. The photo is from our photo shoot with Positive Negatives in January:

I promise I will show more soon…

Just because I felt I didn’t achieve much during the weekend, I counted the no of LO’s I’ve done so far this year. I was happily surprised to find I had done 60+ LO’s these last three months. Considering I have so many photos and events I want to preserve, this is great news to me.

How many have you done? Which one is your favourite so far? Please share!!

    Yay, I’m so glad you were able to go and that you had a great time! Sorry about still being tired though … I guess it’s pretty hard to “catch up” on sleep at your place, but hopefully resting as much as you can will help.
    Beautiful layout!

    Jag har gjort 15 än så länge. Inte fy skam för en nybörjare. 😉 Min favorit är nog den här, i all sin enkelhet: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/__YkZkqJzEF0/S3qb6RTXqCI/AAAAAAAAB8k/OlUZy-TRFVY/s1600-h/Du+v%C3%A4xer.jpg

    Är så nyfiken på vad du har gjort de senaste veckorna. Verkar ha varit mycket tandagnissel innan du fick allt klart. Spännande! 🙂
