March GoGo Challenge Fun….

Hello Everyone, It’s Lisa here with my Blog Post for April and welcome to Spring…. As I write my blog post it feels like the March GoGo Getaway was so long ago as the weather was so cold it felt like Winter. The sun’s out today and we are promised warmer weather… so fingers crossed…

A real feel for the GoGo “Love” can be felt in the Cropping room where the walls become filled with a gallery of LO’s. These are challenges that the DT have set prior to the Getaway to allow delegates opportunity to have some creative fun. The challenges can be completed before or during the Getaway. Once completed you can enter to win a prize. No one is judged.. but everyone who enters will be placed in a draw.. for which you name could be drawn from a “GoGo coloured bucket”…


My LO above was completed for my Shape challenge in which I choose a House. This allowed for flexibility and always everyone’s own interpretation. I have been inspired by paper piecing and wanted to add lots of sewing to provide detail. I also added lots of depth through layering which can be seen in my embellishment clusters wither side of the photo. I was able to use my Silhouette to cut both the picket fence, kite and Clouds.


It was fun playing with different forms of embellies mixing fussy cutting, ephemera, rubber shapes, die cuts, sequins, acetate, punched shapes washi tape and my journaling. Although I must say I underestimated how fiddly the picket fence would be to stitch.. but I feel was worth it in the end.


I also completed a different Lo for the challenge, again a house although showing photos of rooms.2018-04-136

I used mixed patterned paper above for the hills and house placing on plain cardstock. Again adding more stitching. Its so lovely to see your challenge area of the wall fill as the weekend progresses, so Thank you to all who joined in.

I also completed the challenges set by the other DT members… below is a handful of them for you to see.






So not long now before the Birthday Getaway in June, we are busy in preparation and more challenges will be here before we know it. Its a great way to inspire you and get Lo’s completed filling your albums.

I hope your able to enjoy the sun whilst it is out…

See you next month…. Hugs…20180112_13105536398902-1608269466.png
