A scrappy weekend away


Yes I was lucky enough to go away for 3 days child and husband free!!! and I got to scrap with 9 fantastic creative women!!! We stayed at a house that slept 10!! in Barwon Heads. Drank alot, scrapped heaps, ate way too much and laughed and laughed and laughed!!!





Clockwise from me - Bronny Koch, who drove over from Mt Gambier, Crystal Goulding, who flew down from Brisbane, Raquel Pert, Laura Overdyke, Melissa Millar, Marelle Jackman, Leonie Neal-Dawson, Jasmine Shea, and Kerry Murray, who flew over from Adelaide,

It was perfect timing for me, and, I think, everyone else too. I really needed a break. And a full night's sleep lol. Mind you late nights and my body used to getting up early meant I probably got less sleep than when at home, but at least it was 6 or 7 hours straight and not broken.

We're already talking about the next one...perhaps in January sometime!

I scrapped 11 pages which I'm super happy about. Will show them over the next few days.

Scrap the Boys -criteria - handmade embies - love the flower from A Lil Somethin'

Kraft it Up - criteria - one of
* Monochromatic
