Great day on Saturday.
Leanne from Scrapabout is wonderful. I can't speak highly enough of Leanne and her store. It's not a huge premises but you know what - that's what I loved about it!
And was it was so well stocked!
I checked out the new Basic Grey and lots of Heidi stuff including the supersized flowers!
So many lovely girls and they were all busy little bees throughout our 3.5hour class.
Here's my usual group shot!
Ok - who put that chair in the way!
What a happy bunch we all are!! Actually, that's a good word to sum up the day! It was a HAPPY day.
The bright, cheery colours Leanne has painted the workroom and the shop were happy colours and everyone was in such an 'up' HAPPY MOOD!
Also there was Alison, Yvonne and Caz who is on the Boxx DT with me!!
And I also got to meet Kelly Cruz (lovely girl) who has a daughter McKenzie (LOVE that name and it was one of the choices we had before Capri was born)..annnyway, Kelly has the name Capri for McKenzie's middle name!!! And she chose it because she had seen my Capri's name in one of the scrapping mags! How cool is that!!!
So, I am heading back to Scrapabout on April 8. I'm doing two lots of 2hour workshops this time. And I picked some great products to use too.
Will keep you posted.
On my way home from Scrapabout I called in to see Fiona.
She was teaching at a retreat at Turramurra for Sonia from Forever Always.. What a lovely setting for a retreat. So picturesque! Here's the three of us..
It was great to catch up with Fiona and see her in action teaching one of her classes. One girl travelled all the way from Nyngan because Fiona was teaching (*hi Narelle) - isn't that lovely!!!
So then I headed home to Newcastle!
Sunday we ventured out to Paper & Stuff at Cooranbong for their 8th birthday celebrations. I didn't take my camera! Can you believe it. The damn things travels everywhere with me and I forgot to take it.
I could have had a photo of Capri riding the mechanical surfboard and jumping on the jumping castle(all FREE!!), Jamison enjoying his FREE fairyfloss, Janelle with her happy face on and a huge bucket of Sherbies and lollypops,meeting and greeting people as they entered the store, Cath's hubby dressed in his Paper & Stuff clown costume complete with Lumiere painted boots, a packed shop with people everywhere and Cath standing on the shop counter handing out 30+ bags of freebies for the lucky door prize draw!
But I didn't.
So you will have to close your eyes and imagine it!
It was a great day. A fun family outing and a wonderful celebration and fantastic turnout for Cath! And I also saw Rach Greig and little Ethan as well as Simone and a few of my regular ladies!
And that was my weekend:O)
