Well, I had the most wonderful time away last weekend, it was unreal.
Lauren and I went to the Scrapbooking City Retreat and we had a ball, we met so many nice ladies. Leisa and Kerri the owners of Scrapbook City are simply amazing, they made me feel so welcome.
I had a class before the retreat where I met my first lot of really lovely ladies, the class went really well, and we all had a wonderful time, and their individual layouts turned out lovely, it was great to see the different ideas and colours they came up with. I intended to get a class photo but forgot to, which is a shame.
Then off to the retreat where I did two classes on the Saturday, and it was just fabulous, the ladies were all just so wonderful to teach and I really had the best time. I met the DT Members at Scrapbook City and what a lovely bunch of talented scrappers they are, Michelle Lindenmayers was so lovely, I could have sat and chatted with her for hours, and she sent me through these photos of the Retreat, which I will share with you, as well as the lovely Katie Howard, taking a class photo for me thankyou Katie.
I shared a room with a bunch of crazy, wonderful people Jen, Deb, Terri, Trish, Ronnie, Sue and Niss and of course Lauren and myself I hope I didn't leave anyone out. When we were getting ready for the "P" Party on Saturday night we had such a laugh getting ready, it was a lot of fun. Lauren and I went as Pirates Arhhhh!!........ LOL !!
Then on the Sunday I met up with Sandra Gerdes and her lovely daughter Rachelle Minett, well what can I say talk about the best mother and daughter team, you are both wonderful you know how much I think of you both, we did a little scrapping, but mainly talking I am so good at that, Rachelle will back me up on that one LOL !!
So much to tell you, I am off to Canberra as well next wednesday, and I will be holding a class on the 8th of August 2pm to 5pm, so if you are interested just go and check this site out Quilt and Craft fair or email Judy Newman on firstname.lastname@example.org for more details, I would love to see you there.
Well thats about it, I do have more to share, but I will catch up on my next blog entry, I hope you all have a wonderful week. Carole xx
