a BLAST! with Iris Babao-Uy at SnC's ART RETREAT - Day 2

.

.
Yes! We were so fortunate to have Iris Babao-Uy recently gracing Scrap-n-Crop.com's Scrap.Abode last weekend with her lovely presence (and loads of talent) to host a 2-day ART RETREAT ... I thought I had {ABSOLUTELY MUST} take a shot of her in the store despite her protest - having been the center of attention for too many hours - as she too could not resist but shop, shop, shop ... spoil with choices was her {lame? lol} reason.
.
Well, in any case, we don't blame you Iris!!! we are ALL a bunch of hopeless case scrap-erholics-cum-shopaholic! and proud of it as well.
.
Here's some snap shots of Day 2 of SnC's Celeb ART RETREAT with Iris Babao-Uy...

The masterpiece we were all desperately trying to copy ...

I mean, trust me, it's truly not as simple as it looks. And as Val has expressed and written about her personal experience in this week's newsletter, it was a lot of hard work, long hours, detailing, techniques ... every embellishment went through at least 3 tedious process before being glue-d on.

If you're not convince, here's an expression to prove my point!

 
 {errr... oops! sorry about that Rose - we love you! truly}
 
And how our own 'master'piece looks like ...





the serious detailing that goes in...



the cajoling and encouragement we needed ...



shameless amount of group, one-on-one with Iris ...



{errr... even the young one had to observe hard to show mom later!}

But in all, WE survived!!!



and sure had lots of fun ... laughter ...


.
Thanks to all those brave SURVIVORS - especially those that made it through TWO days!!!
Can't wait to do this again in our upcoming SnC Celeb ART RETREAT with Irene Tan aka Scrapperlicious.

Scrap-n-Crop.com supporters, our youngest participant (Becks!), aunty (my mom) who wants all the  Doddlebug Furnishing in the Scrap-room, me (of course) has one thing to say:

Iris, a BIG, BIG, BIG thank you for leading the ART RETREAT this year. It's a thrill and an honour to have you - we hope to see more of you in the coming years....

Lurv, Val

P/S: A special shout out and thanks to Agnes as well ... you are a gem!
