What a weekend!

Wow! The last week has been a whirl wind. Last Monday I decided to fly to Sydney on Thursday to drive up to Kate's retreat with my Cousin Sarah. Sar was the only one that knew that I was coming down... I was the mystery scrapper... We left on late that afternoon with San and Del.

 We drove to Peta's house in Branxton to spend the night... it was great to meet Peta IRL! Thanks for the bed hun *mwah*

We stopped off in Dungog for Breakfast and had a suprise all of our own.. Loz drove over to meet us for breakfast... she is gorgeous!

We arrived at Kate's mothers before she did and we helped Peta set up her shop. As I was unpacking it was 'one for donna and the rest for the shelf' I just couldnt help myself lol.

When Kate arrived I hid in a different room.. when I walked into the room the poor thing burst into tears.... it was so lovely to meet her IRL! she is as lovely as I thought she would be

 I had "talked" to a few of the girls in different forums and it was fantastic to meeting them all!

here is the group photo that Kate's mum ( who is an awesome cook! ) took of us

 I managed to do 12 LO's plus a double page that I have to finish now that I am home.. i didnt take the right photos for the class lol

I arrived home at about 8.30 last night after loosing most of my scrap gear on the flight... I wasnt leaving Brisbane until I got it back in my possession... the damn airline couldnt make up their mind which flight they had put it all on.... I think I will send it all down by courier next time....

I havent had time to photograph all my LO's atm...but I will try and get to that shortly....

Thanks again for a fantastic retreat girls! I cant wait until I come down again in August for Sar and Sandra's retreat! (and again in Sept and in October for Peta's retreat lol)

look what i bought myself!

yep! a cricut expression!
and I bought this to go with it!

it's a 'sure cuts alot' program otherwise known as SCAL. It means that I can cut much more with my cricut than just what the cartridges do... any font that you can download from the net.. and you can also create your own files using the 'inkscape' program that you can download free from the internet.
My gorgeous friend Tina has taught me so much about what this can do...thanks hun!

some just because!

are you ready for some more LO's??  Ever since my holiday at Christmas my mojo has returned.. I am really enjoying scrapbooking (and buying scrap supplies too!)

Here are some more LO for you!

thanks for looking mwah!
