So Thanks Jan for the class


I am sorry I haven't been a good blogger lately but work commitments have made it impossible for me to update anything but that has all changed now.

A new phase in my life is starting what yet I am not sure but no doubt I will
soon find out. If you didn’t already know the company I have worked for over the past 8 1/2 years has sold and moved to Sydney so now I am unemployed as I didn’t wish to move.

After working down there recently I know why I am happy to stay in the country

Specially for you at the retreat

We have been given a very special offer of free spa therapy treatments at the retreat they will last for 20 mins and will be conducted in the evening they are so yummy for relaxation and I can highly recommend them.

What a weekend retail therapy scrapping and spa relaxation treatments what more could a girl want and all meals cooked for you and no washing up or family just like minded people

Kit Preparation

For everyone going to the retreat it is vital that you are organised and the best way is to be prepared. I would recommend that you prepare 6 - 10 kits a day you might not use all these but then you just might.

Prepared kits are the most vital item you could have,

start with
1.find the photo you wish to scrap
2.pick the papers & card stock
3. pick the embellishments you want to use
4. pick you title (if chipboard you might like to paint and dimensional at home) all in a plastic bag and place in a pizza box of in a bag for your kits

I will prepare a kit this week and photograph it and add to the site so you can understand what I mean.
