I am so far behind and trying to catch up on housework, kids and sleep....
I went away last weekend to the Shop and Crop Retreat...yes they are back!!!!
What a weekend....
We stayed at the Myuna Bay Recreational Centre. Very affordable, meals were nice and the company was fabulous!!!
I loved the classes...the fabulous Peg Hewitt...yes i had to mist...different for me...

Thankyou Kylie for a well organised retreat....can't wait to go again......


I actually got to scrap for me. So this was nice and more relaxing and that i didn't have a deadline to meet.

Now to catch up on the many new challenges for the month..

Purple Pumpkin

FABULOUS sketch for the month of June designed by Crece with the perfect design elements to use some of your Purple Pumpkin stash.

I have flipped my sketch to suit my photo:

I just love this photo of Kayley at her Yr 6 Formal Night. A bunch of girls just sat on the floor and ate their dessert....very lady-like don't you think!

I love the bright aray of buttons and the B&W lollipop embellishment really pops out from the page.

You have until the end of the month to complete this sketch and link it up here by midnight 30 June 2012. There will be two fabulous Purple Pumpkin prize packs to give away - one winner will be chosen by the design team, and the second will be a random prize draw.


I just loved the large heart when i first laid eyes on this sketch. So a romantic layout i wanted to create. So a hunting i went for a photo and found this particular photo of my parents that has been taken recently.

and some close ups of the wonderful Scrapmatts and Purple Pumpkin:
