At the Scrapstars retreat last weekend I was lucky enough to do a class with the amazing Emma Trout, she taught a stunning class using gorgeous Websters All About Me papers and I finally think I have mastered the art of misting without leaving splodges! I have long been a fan of Emma's scrapping and it was great to meet her in real life, she is a really lovely lady.

I think my painting technique needs a bit of work, this was my second attempt, I took everything off my first page and did it all again after the class but I really want to try and achieve a softer more subtle look. Must try harder next time!!

I have been busy creating with the October My Creative Scrapbook kits over the past few weeks, the big reveal is next week and the kits are definitely worth seeing, they are amazing!! Jolaine has set a great challenge over on the forum, all you have to do is create a page which incorporates circles. Pam has put together a great prize as always, take a look at this!
