Ok - it's been a little while since my last post so I felt obliged to share some stuff!LOL
Since last time I've been away to the Scrapboxx Retreat again - and it was fantastic AGAIN! I drove all the way down (8 hours) on Friday and then home again on Sunday so I made myself go to bed before midnight on Saturday night as I knew I'd regret it in the morning (well, more likely in the afternoon) if I didn't. So I missed SingStar :(.
It was great to see Sheree, Kel and Mardi again, and to meet Nikala O'Brien and Karen Day - I just have to be the 100th person that says it - Karen is SO much taller than I expected!LOL. I forgot my tags this time - DORK! but so did Kaz so I wasn't feeling so bad! I also won a LO scrapped by Kaz and can't believe I forgot to photograph it before I put it in Darcy's album.

What ekse has happened? Oh, I got 2 boxes of prizes in the mail from the FK Awards for Excellence - YAY! I didn't even know that you won actual prizes - I just thought it was the honour of winning the award!LOL.

I held my 2nd scrapbooking class last Thursday and it went off really well. I really loved the product the girls got, so it's easy to teach something you know is good! And both pages got accepted for publication too so at least I know they were 'worthy'!LOL

Here's a few things - this is part of my Lime Tart Full Tart March kit. It's all sold out now - but if you managed to get any of the kits this month, then check out their gallery.
It's using BG Marrakech

Oh - and here's the cards I taught in the class last week - just quick, easy and cheap using the leftovers from the kits.

And here's some sympathy cards I made recently that I don't think I've shared.

Oooh - and also - I just logged onto Anna's Craft Cupboard and she's got all the new Sass Lass papers there. ANd they look YUMMO - I think I'm liking the look of these ones most of all the recent stuff .....big call?? we'll see - I'm off for a closer look!

Forgot to tell you.....

This is a LO I created with the latest Boxx of Scraps - there's heaps more inspiration in the newsletter as well. And here is my sketch challenge - if you're up for it! To enter click HERE.
And here's my take on it (yes, I know - sorry about the circles AGAIN!LOL)

And speaking of the Boxx - thats exactly where I'm off to tomorrow - to the retreat!! YAY. I'm going to be really late but I have to drive all the way down tomorrow so there's no getting around it. Better late than never!
See you on the other side!!
