Scrapstars April 2012

Well I had a hectic few weeks prior to the retreat and not through retreat work, but family commitments, I'll refer back to them later, but I just have to tell you all about the Scrapstars weekend retreat. I had a fab time (except for the fact that we only had 5 hours sleep on Friday and Saturday night) if I seemed a little "grey" on Sunday, that is the reason, but everything else went superbly. That's what you get when you deal with a bunch of professional, so my thanks go out to the wonderful teachers, Lida, Kirsty, Emma and Jolan. Their projects were fantastic and the ladies were a fantastic bunch again, we had 5 newbies, and they all said they had a fantastic time and asked "when's the next one". We even managed to sort any lighting problems with some funky lights that my husband hired for me, although I did suggest to the girls that they might like to alter the bases as a challenge as they were a little ugly ! Also thanks to Kate and Nicky from Bellaboo for bringing the shop. Our pre retreat challenge was to alter a match box (the large cooks type) and some of the entries were stunning, of course they were all lovely and unique and one of our new ladies Brenda won that particular challenge, we also has sketch challenge, make and takes, raffle and of course bingo, the Saturday night flies by, here are a few photo's of the matchboxes ....


  1. do you have any plans for another retreat?????

Scrapstars March Retreat 2013

Well "someone" has started the countdown on the Scrapstars forum, and has posted that it is only 50 days to go !!!! I am very excited and know these next 2 months are going to fly by with plans and preparation. Of course the teachers are super organised and have prepared 4 out of 7 projects already (the other ones are well into the planning stages too). I have been in contact with the supplier these past few days and have everything on order now, so role on the deliveries:) If you would still like to book a place at the Scrapstars craft retreat in March, please go to the website at
