More Pickled Pear!

Hi everyone! I have been a very busy little bee... I'm sure you all know the feeling at this time of the year.  Can't complain too much though, as I've just spent the most wonderful weekend at The Scrapbook Store's Retreat.  The women who attend our retreats are seriously awesome.  Such a bunch of great girls sharing and laughing and having a great time. Loved every minute of it!
I have quite a few layout to share, as you can imagine, but I'll only do a few at a time. I know I've promised to share my first multi medium layout next, but I haven't photographed it yet, so will have to wait for next time.  So, first up are my last 2 layouts using my all time favourite Kaisercraft collection 'Pickled Pear'.
I have played along with the #3 November Saturday Sketch at Kaisercraft.  Here's the sketch.
...and my take on it.  The photo is of my friend's gorgeous baby girl when she was 7 months old.  Just love the joy on her little face. :)
I have mainly used Kaisercraft products on here, with the exception of the AC Thickers and an old Basic Grey rhinestone flourish that I've had in my stash forever. :)

Another layout using 'Pickled Pear'.  My DD took these photos of her and DH on her iPhone at her Year 12 Dinner.  These two share a great sense of humour. :)   Don't you just love how versatile this collection is?  It goes with anything! :)
Used the Crafters Workshop Mini Chickenwire Reversed template with some Texture Magic and then Glimmer Mist.  Also love my Tim Holtz Film strip ribbon.
 The colours of this collection are beautiful and so are the butterflies. :)
Well, that's all for today! Will be back in a day or two with more to share. Oh, and if you would like to know more about my scrapbooking process, check out my '5 Minute Chat' on the Scrapbooking Memories Magazine Blog. :):)
Hope you are having a lovely week and are getting a little time to get crafty.
Thank you for visiting.  Until next time!

This collection is so lovely! Your first LO is so clean and crisp and that photo is stunning. Love your title and might have to steal that one. ;) Love the texture in your second Lo and those photos are priceless.

Beautiful collection and I love how you have used it. Love the photos in the 2nd LO, it's fun to scrap those photos.
Hope you had fun at the last retreat, pity I couldn't make it but one a year is all I can fit in my schedule and budget. Ha ha.
