Summer Retreat

2012 Retreat February 
Friday17 to Monday 20
Join us for an experience you will remember in a wonderful place called Winbourne. We love holding our retreats here in the peaceful semi-rural atmosphere that is just 15km from Penrith and we know that you will love this retreat too.

Bring along your projects for some uninterrupted 'me' time. This retreat goes back to basics, you pay for the nights you want to stay. Your meals and accommodation and scrap area are all provided for you.

There will be the Scrapbooking Australia shop on hand for those last minute purchases. And classes for those who wish to do them - classes will be held in a separate area so as not to disturb scrappers who wish to continue on their own.

Accommodation is in a modern eight bedroom Cottage.  Each bedroom has two single beds, heater, ceiling fan, bed and desk lamps and own en-suite.  Each Cottage has a room to suit the needs of a disabled person.  Linen is supplied.

 A room to scrap in that can hold up to 30 people and is Air conditioned, Handy to pleasant outdoor areas. The room has a kitchen attached with Microwave, tea/coffee facilities, refrigerator, crockery, cutlery. And there is disabled access and toilet facility within.

The Retreat is fully catered, including morning and afternoon teas and a hot breakfast on Sunday morning. All you need to bring with you are your drinks!

gift idea

This was my last class for this year and I had a great time teaching it, I love the Wednesday ladies. So much fun and I really loved that everyone put their own spin on this little project.
This mini printers tray is from Collections and went together while we laughed, ate very yummy chocolate mini brownies -which I meant to take a photo of but they were all gone by the time I remembered, and caught up on each others lives and what is in store over the Christmas break.

One of the reasons I love teaching is the fantastic people you meet and as with most scrapbookers class is a chance to make new friends with like minded souls :)

This year I am taking a break in teaching over Christmas so that I can sort out the final issues with our new site and get our inventory up on the site.

There is also the Retreat in February to organise and did I mention what a mess my scrap area is at the moment lol. I am going to to take a few days to sort through that.

There is one more class next week being taught by the amazing Peta.

New classes will be up for January and February soon so watch this space.

Now the hardest thing about this project is, is it a gift or a keeper?

Blitzen the Christmas spirit

Loving that we are in December already, totally not ready for it to be December already, think I need a few more months but.........

I love creating Christmas projects more than other items and the BoBunny Blitzen range has become one of my favourites for this year. While the images are traditional the colours are contemporary a great mix with brilliant results :)

 Scrapbooking Australia held this class yesterday, where I taught a mini album with surprise packages made from the Blitzen range of papers.

So while I may not be ready for it to be December yet I have my mini album already for Christmas photos!
