Post Retreat post :)

Hi there scappy friends!  I hope you are all doing well.  I've had an awesome weekend at the HBS Retreat and met so many wonderful ladies.  I was so tired yesterday, but can't wait to do it all again!!
I have only one layout to share today.  Still got to finish the others off and will upload later in the week.
Decided to play along at Kraft It Up this month. I do really love working with Kraft cardstock. Should do it more often. This month was a sketch challenge and here is my take on it. The pics are of my friend's little boy (at almost 4) being a silly boy for his mom.  Too cute. :)
I've used the Graphic 45 'Magic of Oz' range and I just totally love all the gorgeous elements that is so easy to fussy cut.  You can find it here.
 Used my Kaisercraft 'Grid' stamp in the top corner.  Note to self:  Use these stamps more often.
 Loved cutting out all these silly figures.  Perfect for a 'silly' page. :)
That's all for today.  I've got to go and conquer the mountain of washing that built up over the weekend.  DS went on a camp too.  I'm getting there! :)
I hope you have a wonderful week. Thanks for visiting!
Until next time.
