“Meeting New Friends!

This weekend is just what I needed!  Some away time to scrap and not have to deal with anything or anyone!! I feel very privileged to have met all these wonderful and talented scrapers!

I got to Port Fairy at about 1pm Friday afternoon and Ebony and Michelle were already there and into their scraping!  The other girls arrived during the afternoon and we set up some table and got into it!! Soo keen!!

We had our food all planned for the weekend and we didn’t have to leave the house if we didn’t want to.  It was lovely weather for Fri and Sat but came in wet on Sunday! I stayed up with Leonie till 1.30am scraping and watching the Olympics which was great! Didn’t get a lot of sleep but that is over rated any way!! lol!!

Saturday morning we all piled into two cars and went for a look around the shops! It is a nice shopping center with some cute shops and I couldn’t help my self and bought an owl necklace!  We then went back to the beautiful house a more scraping and relaxing!!  So nice not to have to think!

I managed to get 8 layouts done and I am so happy! The girls are great at doing ‘mixed media’ or arty scrap booking! They were very helpful and gave me lots of tips and advice and I am going to have a go at some diff stuff this week I hope!!

Ebony is running another one at the end of September and I hope to go to that one! 🙂

“Still Here!”

I know, I know I haven’t been around much! I hate not having time to keep my blog updated! I do apologise!

As usual keeping busy! Cody is loving his job and of course the money, JJ has been hitting the books and doing a great terms work and me I have been flat-out! Took time out yesterday to catch up with Mary which was great!  I am walking with Pam a couple of nights a week and enjoying it even though the weather is now a little chillier!!

I am really busy with my SU hobby as well! I have just had my sister join my team and I also have another lovely lady joining me this week!! Ali is coming down on Sunday to help start a bit of a clean up at mums and to have a bit of 1 on 1 training!!  I have been busy getting ready for a workshop in a couple of weeks and so much is happening at SU it is really exciting!!

I am really looking forward to having a weekend break at Port Fairy with nine other lovely ladies from down this way the first weekend in August! A scraping and fun-filled weekend with like minded girls is just what the doctor ordered! lol!! I need a mini break!!

I have scraped a couple of layouts and here is what I have created!!

This is a 8.5×11 double layout I made to scrap some of the photos that I took at the two Garden Shows that Pam and I went to in Feb/March! I used all Stampin’ Up products!!

This one I had fun with today as it has definitely been stay in doors weather today here in Vic!!

This is Step By Step Challenge that I did with The Boxx girls!! Also I am pretty happy as I won the May sketch Challenge with my “I Luv To Stamp” Layout!!

This is dad @ 97 still pottering around in the garden!! 🙂 All SU except the cogs emboss folder and I made the fence!!

Well I hope I get back here a bit more often to catch you up on what I have been up to! You can find me on FB and I lurk a bit in a few forums too.  I update my Stampin’ Up! Website also~

Thanks For Looking 🙂 Kerri x
