Sorry a long post, what an awesome weekend

So I headed off on Saturday to Toowoomba to have a scrappy night of fun with these gorgeous girls, (oops just realised Belinda Lowe is missing). Leanne J was so lovely to have us all at her house. We laughed and scrapped and talked and scrapped, and laughed some more. The talent of all these ladies is amazing. I got so many ideas, I think it has given me a much needed boost for my scrapping after I have been feeling a bit blah over everthing I do at the moment.

Now the reason for the get-together was Gilly (in the middle in the green shirt) flew up from Sydney to see her friend Renee, so they thought they would have some scrapping time as well. In the photo L-R me, Leanne J, Tracey St Johnwood, Kim Jeffress, Gilly Lester, Renee, Lisa Amiet and Geli Duncan

and this is the wall of talent, some absolutely stunning layouts up there.

I got two layouts finished in amongst all the laughter and one almost finished. The sewing machine did not want to play nicely so I packed it up and bought the third home to finish. I wish I had of taken some more photos, I think I would have got a lot more layouts done. Anyways this layout was done using last month's Storyboard Kit with a few extras added. Miss Megs started Middle School (Year 7) this year with a change of campus, a change of uniform and a few nerves. She had a fabulous first day and is still loving it. Lots of gorgeous prima flowers, butterflies and swirly bling on the page. Loving it big time.

and a closeup of all that Prima goodness

This layout I did for The Boxx fortnightly challenge. The criteria is to use the word Love, Red and Lace on your layout. And this is what I came up with -

I used lots of goodies from this month's Polkadot Place kit, should have done some closeups, will try and get back with them later. By the way I LOVED this kit, so versatile and full of pretty things.

Ok, well I must go and cook some dinner, the kids are nagging me big time.

Thanks for dropping by.
