Retreat officially over and officially successful!

Well we had an awesome weekend scrapping. Met some new friends, caught up with some old friends. Shared lots of scrapping love as we had lots of donations from local businesses and my BFF at Kaisercraft! Haven't done a final count yet, but looks like close to $2000 we will be banking to The Cancer Council! Great cause and we got to have fun at the same time. Personally I didn't get that much done...only 7 pages, all quite basic. But in my defense...I did have to set up, go out for footy in the next town, come back, visit DD who came home from boarding school for the weekend, go out again for soccer preliminary finals for DS team that I manage (they won...7-1!! 4 goals kicked - no 3 goals kicked, 1 "headed" by my very talented DS!!)
So more time out than in it feels, but here's some of the work I did manage to get done...

Had no idea where this was going when I started or what the title would be..just knew I loved the photo! And I wanted to put that Purple Pumpkin button on there and then I had to find something to match..hence the rubons! The ribbon is also from Purple Pumpkin Like Father Like Son kit I bought, as are the next couple of lo's

This one above uses the August Sketch at Anna's Craft Cupboard

This one above  I did for the Scrap The Boys Criteria this month (to use ribbons in a different way)

Some old Kaisercraft pp's and a cheeky boy and some burger rings...need I say more....??!!

Here's a close up in case you were wondering how many burger rings..!!??! (13 Riley tells me!)
Just a quickie....The photos are cute but hard to see...
Our dog is an outside dog, but if Riley or Tillysox (the dog!) think I'm not looking, she sneaks onto the mat at the back door. Riley's favourite place is nestled into her arms, head on her, and she loves it!
Right..better get started on putting my craft room back together so I can start on my "homework" for this month!

I LOVE your layouts!!! I think you did pretty well getting 7 layouts done, I'm usually lucky if I get 2 finished at a retreat. I think I must be the worlds slowest scrapper though :)
