Retreat 2012, Day 1, Class #1

Well what a weekend it has been, absolutely fantastic! I could not of planned it better if I'd tried, it ran so smoothly, classes were enjoyed by all, so much food which was delicious and of course it was the company that really made it. We of course had plenty of laughs and I think this photo says it all really -  happy faces.
 The first Class on the Saturday was a Canvas Art using Beau Chateau DSP.
Everyone had seen sneak peaks of the projects beforehand but they didn't know exactly what they'd be creating.

Here's Katie busy with her canvas.
A lovely photo of Julie & Ally. Ally was our Birthday Girl for the weekend.
Katie & Pam

Sam & Ali
And the completed project...
I so enjoyed creating this art canvas. It's something a little different for me.

I think the most rewarding part about all the classes over the weekend was of course everyone's enjoyment but also the fact that everyone completed the classes. No half finished projects taken home. 

I'm still on a high from it all and I've already booked the next Retreat for 2013!! 

Back soon with more..

Oh my word! The canvas is more than stunning {swoon}. I love the Beau Chateau line and (because I was hoarding it) I still have full pages left to play with. Thank you so much for sharing this inspiring project. Congrats on your retreat success!
