Greetings from the Cheeky Chics Scrapbook Retreat

I have completed six layouts since our arrival Friday at the Marina Cove Resort for the Spring Fling Cheeky Chics Scrapbook retreat on Friday. I hit the wall right after dinner last night but am ever hopeful my mojo will be waiting for me at our crop table when Janet and I get back from our walk this morning.

Here are the layouts I did complete. I think this one and the one above are my two favorites so far.
I have been wanting to scrap this photo of Landon and me taken last Jan. during a photo shoot done by Clare, Pam and Janet for the longest time.
When I printed this photo taken this past Easter of Colvin, it came out a bit washed out like it was an old print you might find in a grown ups baby album. I decided to go with what I had and scrap it "old fashioned" . Love these papers, btw.
I played around with some inky blotches in this one. I am not sure if I like the results or not. The inking is done on cellophane so I can easily remove the title and replace it without any damage to the layouts.
I adore the new beachy line from Creative Imaginations and had fun enhancing the paper fancy cut shells with the Pearlescent paints but feel this layout falls a bit short of what I was aiming for. Pilot error I am sure because I love these papers I got from Posh Scraps.

Janet and I are off for our morning walk soon. Hope your weekend is as much fun as mine has been so far.

Especially love the Daddy & Me LO. Great cut out over the patterned paper. And the pearl trim is lovely.

Love all of them. Your layouts turned out great this weekend.

My favorite one still is the one of Colvin and the Easter egg.
