Speed Scrap

The retreat! This is me, finally getting to it... well, the first night of it, anyway. I think I'll have to take this thing in shifts, as I don't have much time right now. But checked in late Thursday afternoon and the bonus classes started that night. Alisha hosted a very fun speed scrap. If you haven't ever done one, I suggest you try it. I did four layouts in one night!

She would tell us something, like "pick a photo and crop it to a circle" and then set the timer for 2 minutes or so before moving on to the next instruction. I think each layout was timed for 20 minutes.

I have to be honest and say that none of these were completely finished in the alloted time - I touched them all up later that night in the hotel room - but the foundations were there and they were "almost" done.

The other bonus of the speed scrap is that I was able to scrap some memories I've been wanting to do for a while, but just didn't have the inspiration yet. So having here specific instructions, combined with the time constraints, was just what I need to get them DONE.

More to come...
