Hi everyone!

Here's this weeks Paper Players challenge from Jaydee:

Spring! Yay!

Last weekend I was at a craft retreat put on by K and Krafts in a beautiful North woods setting, and spring was definitely in the air. I even got in a couple warm and sunny walks.
Here are a few pics:

I woke up at 5 each day and started making cards!The mornings were beautiful.

Lot's of people making some cute projects:

It was lots of fun!

While I was there, one of my friends had some awesome dies she let me play with. I made today's clean and layered card with them. The pink is a die from Memory Box called Quinn Flourish. The flower is also from Memory Box called Tilth Floral. I adhered it to some wacky stitched rectangles from Avery Elle. 

The sentiment is from Penny Black's Sprinkles and Smiles, stamped in black.

THAT'S a CAMP???? LOL Beautiful! Great cards as well! Looks like an amazing place!
We have a small camp by a river but we don't have power/water except what we bring in. LOL That's just fine by me. Very serene and perfect for my husband & I. We can accommodate 2 more if we wish.

A beautiful flower Laurie - I love the delicate pink die cut behind the main flower, so pretty! Looks like you had a lot of fun last weekend too - such a treat to have an uninterrupted weekend of crafting!

Looks like lots of fun at the retreat, Laurie. This card is super cute too. I like the soft pink and lavender together.
