Little Houses Collage - Friends of a Feather - Creative Retreat

Mom and I hosted a 
Friends of a Feather ~  Creative Retreat 
this past Sunday.  The gals who joined us got busy right away preparing their frames before deciding what theme they wanted to make their "Little Houses Collage."

The possibilities are endless...I have an enormous collection of inspiring pieces of art to use in a project of this kind.  Everyone was enjoying "playing" with ideas...coming up with the perfect choice for them!

Each of the girls had the choice to add a few special embellishments 
to truly make it their own...using buttons, lace, 
bingo markers, old rulers, scrabble pieces...
Amy added some additional layers to her little houses.
Jennifer decided to use Paris themed art...with memories of 
her trip to Europe with her husband last summer 2009...

Mary and Debbie are two friends who joined us to share in the 
creativity...they enjoyed their girl-time making something together.
Everyone who participates in a Creative Retreat is given a 
"Friends of a Feather"
~ Friendship Token ~
For this retreat we made little tags to give the girls...
just a little something extra to take home with them!
As the girls finished their projects, we served little cheesecakes with 
fresh berries, almonds, raspberry tea and coffee...delicious!
