My suprise Trip to Wollongong :)

Last Thursday morning about around 3.20am (OMG!) the girls and I left Dalby on our long road trip to Wollongong.  Craig is away on a business trip and the girls are now on holidays so I decided to head down to Sar's and to suprise my friends with arriving at a retreat that they were all going to in Sydney...It was awesome (sorry Linda and Kindra lol) too see everyones faces when they walked in and seen my sitting at their table. I certainly felt loved (as I am wiping away my tears lol)

I didnt get many Layouts done, I was too busy chatting and the odd vodka lime and soda or red wine hee hee hee

so here at the ones that I did get done!






We havent really had a chance to do any scrapping again until today when the gorgeous Linda came over to scrap with me while Sar uploaded some new stock in the shop. I am sure I will have some orders to take back to Dalby with me lol.

I used this months He's savvy kit...it would nearly be my most favourite kit to date.. and sorry there isnt any left! as you can see why!


I also finished this one that I had started a few days before I left



I really enjoyed doing this layout.. Vintage is usually not my style but I think I rocked it lol

Thanks for dropping by xxx

A little bit of Vintage

Do you like Vintage Papers? I have never seem to be able to make them work for me :s But my gorgeous friend Lisa knows exactly what to do!

In April the She's Savvy Kit (which Sar still has some left here and on Sale too!) was Vintage. So, I handed over my kit to Lisa and she scrapped some beautiful layouts for me using some photos from my birthday party.



Aren't they gorgeous!

Thanks Lisa... I will treasure these always xxx

yep, I am blogging again!!!

wow, 3 posts in two days :) lol

Late last week I started this layout of my gorgeous godson Tyler. Is'nt he just a cutie???

The photo matched October Afternoon's "5 & dime" perfectly. I am loving the muted colours in this range. And if you be quick you can get some from Scrapbook Savvy... there are still some left!



Are you going to the Stamping and Papercraft Expo in Brisbane this weekend?  I am! I havent been for quite a few years, so I am really looking forward to it! And it will be great to catch up with some friends and meet some IRL for the first time. And I am staying at Gigi's so I am sure that there will be some drinkies had!

Wicked Princesses Retreat Layouts

Are you ready for an layout overload... nah... its not that many. I had a great time at the
Wicked Princesses retreat. It was great to finally meet some of my online friends IRL for the first time. And OMG Princess Krissy is absolutely gorgeous! Here is a group photo of us on the Saturday. I love all the pink and black!

I only managed 8 Layouts for the weekend.. I should have really got more done since I stayed up really (or early) every night.


The first four layouts are of Sar and Leesh's kids when they came to visit for my birthday... I somehow forgot to get a photo printed on Bronte :( The photos were taken by my girls when they were having a photo shoot are they had been shopping in big Dalby Town lol





one of the challenges for the weekend was to scrap without patterned paper....OMG it took forever to get that rub on onto the page.. this one is of Craig's Mum and Mandy on her first birthday.
 This layout is of two of my friends that arrived at my party in bright green suits.. the dress was Cocktail wear and they told me that they were going to come in green suits... I should have believed them!


oh dear lol

I have some more Layouts to share that my gorgeous friend Lisa K did for me at the retreat... I will be back with them soon

Thanks for dropping by! And please leave a comment. I love reading them
