Oh my, the retreat was fabulous.
But we did have a feeling it would be.
I can’t believe how exhausted I am. Think that staying up till after 4am might have something to do with that. I think I can safely say from all of us that we had a great time, got some serious scrapbboking done (and some not so serious) and we sure had a lot of laughs.
Normally i’d promise to post photos later of the things I missed and some of the work… but I am not going to promise, I just know it will be a stretch this time of year to get that happening, so no promises. I simply won’t have time. If it happens it happens.

THE WORK WAS STUNNING!
The creativity in that room over the last 48 hours was a buzz. Hopefully some of it will find it’s way onto our walls for display. I am so inspired that I really want to get to my scrap desk, but unfotunately matchsticks aren’t going to be enough to keep my eyes open right now, even though I have pages planned. There was no way I’d get to them, but they will be there for me when I get back next week.
The first night wasn’t a quiet one either. I had NOTHING to do with the noise that came from my room. Nothing I tell ya! Poor Michelle R got a bit squished between 2 mattresses. Talk about laugh.
There were plenty of practical jokes happening too, and photos like this appeared on my mobile phone. (Raelene I hope they cleaned it ALL up!) Nat’s suitcase was gladwrapped – Miss L had brought a 150 metre caterers pack of gladwrap and boy it got a work out! Turned out it wasn’t Nat’s bag though and Michele copped a whole load of jokes that weren’t aimed at here. Poor Michele. My slippers were found in the freezer – they came out like iceblock tap shoes. Miss L’s bed was shortsheeted and Michelle S’s b ed was gladwrapped with her suitcase on top. There were frozen peas and brocolli my heeled shoes and I won’t even tell you what was in the bottom of my socks! In the end I was scared to even use my toothbrush!
My sexy Mamma! We all dressed up, this year’s theme was Rock N Roll and we had the Juke Box playing. That was a good idea. I just love music when I scrap, even better when we know the words.
Elvis has now left the building. He (she) travelled up by car this year from Perth to hang with us. Mwah Kaye!
Miss L loved the ‘twirly’ skirt.
and of course there were a few of us who had a drink or two to celebrate.
A couple of Angels with “hooters” . haha….. what a blast!
