Retreat Time Scrapping!

I spent a fun weekend with a great group of wonderful scrappers. It was a great few days away and I scrapped just what I wanted... 
no assignment, for no reason at all. It was awesome! Of course I pulled out a few photos of my sweet baby doll and er sweetie pie smile (and that hair bow) was all the inspiration I needed!

Loved playing with DoodleBug... sooo bright and happy!

That sweet little bee with dots of Viva Decor for dimension ... 
he's perfect!

Lots of background stitching here... it adds that layer of texture.
