Jane had made special gifts for us, thermo mugs, each one had our names printed on different dsp and then put inside the lining of the mug. How cool was that? So here we are, all toting our special mugs. Inside each, was a survival kit, maltesers, mars bar, coffee, bandaid, aspro, and most of all, ear plugs. I had sets for everyone and there were sets in the rooms, plus Jane's gift, we had them coming out our ears. pmsl Pun intended.
Before we even got to the camp, Jane and Petronela took us to a Scrapbook shop and we went shopping!! Fantastic. Then onto Woollies for snacks for the weekend and we were set.
Thanks Jane and Nela.
I found it very inspiring to see SU stamp sets, that usually are teamed with the same papers, same colours, same card sketches, which I find boring, used in different and innovative ways.
Kim's challenges, make and takes, gifts and lucky door prizes were excellent. A huge amount of work was put into these. Thanks Kim. Thanks to all the girls who attended who all made it into the fabulous weekend it was. Looking forward to next year. Woo Hoo.
One photo of our table crafting, with Venessa hiding. lol
Here are two of my cards that I managed. At the beginning of the weekend, I was making two of everything. Towards the end, it was one. lol
I used the Holiday Treasures paper which I absolutely adore. Not all of it though, so when Kim suggested a swap, her big Poinsettia paper like this for the papers I don't like in the set, well I was definitely in that. Another girl Tina, also did a swap with me. I was so excited çause this paper is so gorgeous. Pink flowers are from my new stash, Joy stamp and roses from my old stash and of course, my standby, the branch punch.
This is first chance I've had of posting since I've been back. Monday was spent at a friend's place crafting, then a CWA meeting in the afternoon. Tuesday I had to work all day in the Post Office, Melbourne Cup day too. Mind you, I didn't even know what horses were running. A bit out of touch there.
I've got a few more cards to show you so will be back tomorrow with them.
