Happy Easter Go-Go’s! Hope you are all enjoying this lovely weather and time with your loved one. Madie here to share my layouts from the March GoGo-Getaway. This was my first March retreat, I’ve not been able to attend one before, it was really good to meet some new faces and as always I am floored by the creativity and like to look at the layouts as they grow over the weekend, I always learn something new and my head is normally spinning. I always have such a lovely time when I go and feel a bit blue when it’s time to go home!
I wasn’t able to complete all the challenges but I am sharing two that I completed at the retreat and two that were completed at home as I didn’t have the papers with me at the time.
My first layout is Nancy’s mood board, I’ve gone for a more muted tone of the colours. I was really inspired by a layout on Pinterest that was made with triangles and I used that idea to make this layout. But goodness me, cutting out triangle easy yes? No, that took a bit of math and I got a bit flustered – scrapping is meant to be relaxing! I’m really happy with the turn out and will try this agian. I made the tassel and the happy die cut came from one of the GoGo kits many moons ago!
Love, love, love this new release from Simple Stories Emoji Love and it was perfect for my family face mat shenanigans! This was a really nice and quick layout to do and I really liked the colour combination that Lisa put together for this challenge.
This layout was made using the Simple Stories Domestic Bliss release. I started this at the retreat and then completed at home. I made the tassel and glittered the heart that came in the ephemera pack and finished off with a doily and sequins. I’ve also glittered some of the houses with a glitter pen – Wink of Stellar, you can’t really see it in the picture though. I’ve also written a bit of journaling about my experience of buying my first property.
Well this was a challenge. My first instinct with the colours on Giselle’s mood board was to do a masculine layout. My sister posted this picture of our Mum on Facebook for Mother’s day she’s only 18 in the picture and bing! I knew I wanted to scrap the picture she looks so happy and completely carefree, shame that changed when she had me two years later!!
This paper pack is ancient – it’s called Wild Saffron made by K&Company. The flowers I fussy cut from a sheet in the collection, I seem to be fussy cutting more these days and really enjoyed putting this layout together. The layered butterflies and flowers come from the line embellishment pack. I used some white paint to make the circles to anchor everything down and then did some splats.
Well that’s quite a long blog post, thank you for taking the time to read it. Please leave us a comment and I will see you next month.
