Some recent scraps and a scrappy getaway

It's been a while since I have posted, so I'd thought I'd show you some of the layouts I've been working on lately. This layout of my son's birthday was part of a scrap-tag at Scraptacular Images:

I'm also taking part in Scrap-ivor at LCOM. I'm on tribe Glua-Glua (my name choice :)). We just finished week 1 which was a retro challenge. Here is my take. I really like the way the disco ball turned out. I found a disco ball image on the net, cut out the squares with an exacto blade and then used it as a stencil for my glue and glitter. Time consuming and messy, but totally worth it. We won the challenge and the other tribe had to got to tribal council - suckers!

This week's Scrap-ivor challenge is an image inspiration. Here was the image I chose (of 5 we could use):

And here is my take on it. It isn't being revealed until Friday, so shhhhh. My tribe has seen it, but not the other tribe yet.
In other exciting news, this weekend is the bi-annual Alma scrap retreat. I didn't make it to the last one, so I am sooo excited to go this time. Just a group of ladies, usually 8 or 9, getting together in a B&B in Fundy National Park to scrap, eat and laugh. It is a great weekend and is usually pretty productive. I'll have lots to show you when I get back!!!
