Scrapping Day and Night!!!

I had a fantastic time yesterday. The quarterly Creative Memories big scrapping weekend at Souths was on again. This time I booked into the day and night session right from the start. Yep, you're right, again I managed to talk and laugh heaps but this time I did get four pages done.
Saturday morning when I woke I thought, mmmm, might stay in bed a little while longer until I remembered I had to pack my gear. That took an hour!!!! By the time I added everything I thought I might need, stamps, inks, punches, ribbons, bling, papers etc, well I needed a damm pack horse. lol

Another great social day. Two of my cousins were there too which was fantastic as I hadn't seen Carmel and Trish for sooooo long. Also caught up with another friend, Grace, who I was overjoyed to see. My friend Kerry managed to do 6 pages so she was pretty happy about that.
The pages I've done are a continuation of my trip to Canberra, the visit to Cockington Green gardens.

I've used my new martha stewart picket fence punch, SU Lovely as a Tree stamp set,
CM papers, SU cardstock, flowers from my stash and brads.
Please excuse all the photos, I'm not a photographer and need heaps more practice.
The sketchs are from Scrapsketch, the first page being this one and the second page, this one number 143.

Thanks for looking and hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
ETA: Due to several complaints (pmsl), I've since shifted the flower in the top layout to put it near the end of the picket fence. The girls in question are now happy!!! They were right too. lol
