Gecko Galz Clowning Around Mini Album

Hello Peeps!!
Those who have been unfortunate enough to meet me in real life know that I am a "Funny Girl."  I tend to goof off and for most part I am a bit Caddy Wonkus...lol.
The end of February I had the opportunity to go to the 
Gecko Galz Cowgirl Diva Retreat
I was sooo excited to go, because I was finally going to meet Leanne, the owner of Gecko Galz.
Let me just say she is the sweetest person ever!
She came to the airport, picked me up, took me out to eat to many FUN places, let me stay at her place....and meet her friends
(that is a good sign..right??).
Well...while I was at the retreat Leanne set out a bunch of packets full of Gecko Galz ephemera, paper, ribbon etc..and each pack was different.  Each of Galz got to pick out what which pack we wanted to work with.  The idea was to create something awesome with your packet, and at the end of the retreat we would share them with each other and vote on things like...Most Creative, Most Beautiful...etc.
So....I decided to chose this awesome pack of vintage clowns and bright fun papers!!  ORANGE...you know I LOVE ORANGE 
(I know...crazy..and not flowery vintage...but I love it).
The other thing is, I traveled really light, didn't bring any crafty supplies so I only used items for the kit provided...which is AMAZING...lol...I NEVER do that...lol
You can find the Crazy Clowns at Gecko Galz Here.
Here is my creation below.
Here is a look at the inside pages...

The back
I am pretty sure that last picture there is a selfie...that I took of myself at the retreat!!  I had so much fun..and my hair was AWESOMELY standing up!!
Here is a quick look at the tags.

Believe it or not...I have no idea what ribbons or trims I used...because they were all in the pack...lol.  But..I know you could head over to Really Reasonable Ribbon and find some that would work perfect!!

The Exciting NEWS...next year I will be 
TEACHING at the RETREAT!!
You won't want to miss it...because I am going to come up with something super Fun!!
We will be heading to the 

Lately..I have been feeling like 
Painting...which if you have known me a long time...I started out painting...in the blogging world...lol...then in 2010 got into paper crafting...so you may see some different kind of things coming from me :0)  Just wanted to warn you...lol.

Thank you for visiting!!
Hugs!!

  4. This is quite possibly one of the most fun mini albums I have ever seen! I LOVE the color palette (I love orange, too...and talked my mother into using orange wall paper in our kitchen in 1974) and all those tags and pocketses and hidden goodies make me squeal with delight. You created your own three ring circus and I LOVE it!
