Dizzy Izzy May Retreat 2012

Well its already been ...... and gone. We held our second retreat last weekend at the beautiful Stanwell Tops Conference Centre - and endured the coldest of cold weather outside (yes I am a wimp when it comes to the cold). Luckily though we were able to figure out the heating inside and we spent a cozy weekend creating layouts, cards and off the page projects. By our calcs we estimate at least 400 layouts were created and completed over the weekend.

Our weekend had a handmade theme to it, starting from our goodie boxes, and sweet treats to each of our classes which involved the creation of some  handmade element or technique.

Tracey and Jodie made 40 of these sweet treat boxes,
and Rob assembled them for us. Love the colours!

We also had a number of great demo's including bottletop embellishments, and ribbon, resist, and twine flowers. It was great to see so many people use these embellishments in their work.

A big Congratulations to all our Dizzy Competition winners - Mel C, Kelly, Annie W and Karen B. We had five categories of competitions with something for everyone. Our challenges were as follows 

1) SEW-WHAT - a challenge requiring stitching
2) TAG-IT - needed to include a tag
3) ABC Easy as 123 - for this challenge entrants had to create an alphabet themed page with a twist. The entry had to incorporate A - Alpha's, B- Bling or Buttons, C - Cardstock, D - Divine Twine and E - embellishments.
4) SKETCH Competition - entrants had to use a sketch designed by our chief sketch maker Tracey
5) FAVOURITE layout - entrants could enter their favourite sketch from the weekend.
