We’re all Mad Here

Scrapbooking in Wonderland was such a treat.. we disappeared down the rabbit hole and into a world where it is always tea time.
This is a photo-heavy post – enjoy 🙂

We made some cute things too… like these little tea bags, bookmarks and labels. A treat for our ladies when they arrived, each received a bag with scrappy goodies and also a tea cup each – how sweet!

On arrival we were given our gifts and scrapbooking challenges were revealed.

Tea Party Time

Scrapbooking in Wonderland

Our bunting for inside was made from doilies and outside was fabric. Jo made some gorgeous little top hat boxes and macarons inside too! So lovely.

We had plenty of decorations, oh what fun!

and this cartoon board painted by Emily and her friends was a hit too.

Soon we settled in to scrap… and we were scrapping up a storm! We may or may not have had enough sleep… but it sure was nice to scrap scrap scrap.

Scrapbook retreat Geraldton

We found time to go shopping… (pi’s definitely allowed!)  at our favourite scrapbook store to stock up on supplies and see all the new and special things for retreat attendees.

And on Saturday night we all got a little silly.

So are you tired of photos yet?

Our dinner was fabulous, Raelene always looks after us so very well. And always makes me cry with her generosity, she gives us her all. She is the best! We love you Raelene and David.

Here is where we dined… gorgeous fairy lights (thank you to our beautiful family and friends for all the help setting up and packing up )

Raelene surprised me with this incredible cake – she is so awesome. xx

It was a triple layer cake with 3 flavours… so wonderful. Then we all dug in for sweets and treats.
