Kraft It Up - 5,4,3,2,1 challenge

I loved doing the latest challenge at Kraft It Up this month. Here is the criteria in more detail:

This month is a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 challenge and we want to see...

1 Piece of Kraft Cardstock or Patterned Paper
2 Photos of any size
A 3 word title
4 different pieces of patterned paper and
5 different embellishments

** Embellishments can but are not limited to Journal Cards/Tags, Ribbons, Stickers, Die-Cuts, Flowers, Buttons, Twine, Chipboard etc...
*** Feel free to use paints/inks/ mists etc these are not included in the above.

Any questions please email: kraft.it.up@hotmail.com
Entries must be linked no later than 11.59pm March 31st

and here is my take on the challenge:

Kraft cardstock, two photos, three word title, four patterned papers and five embellies. For the latter I went with fabric button / twine / clouds / Typo camera and word stickers. There's actually a lot on the page but it still fits my 'style' if I can call it that... I like a bit of white space on the page.

BTW one of my personal scrappy challenges this year is to use up all my old patterned paper so I have room for some lovely new ones!! I wonder if I will manage it. It'll be fun trying :-))

This photo was taken late last year when I took myself off for a solo retreat to the city. It had been 12 months since my last one, and I'd rather not wait so long for the next! I had three glorious nights to myself, and spent quite a bit of time just chillin' and readin' before I broke out the art supplies.

What do you think about taking solo retreats? Would you go on one, or do you prefer hustle and bustle? Or maybe you don't need to and live somewhere quiet?
