Scrapboxx Retreat at Meadowbrooke!!

Phew! Can't believe that it has been nearly 2 weeks since the retreat at Meadowbrooke.  What a fabulous time.  Two nights and two days of non stop scrapping and lots of chatting meeting new friends and catching up with old ones.  Sheree and Evana inspired us with their fantastic classes and of course the challenges (to create something with virtually nothing).  I am please to say that I completed all the classes and ended up coming home with around 10 layouts, 1 OTP and 3 completed challenges.  We were spoilt rotten having the delightful Ash as our chef for the weekend, she cooked up a storm the food was amazing.   The only down side to the weekend is that I discovered that I have hayfever.  Never had it before in my life, unfortunately the venue had lots of Star Jasmine and it got to me by the 1st morning, thanks to Kim for the Telfast it saved the day.

Here are the challenges:  1. create a Christmas Ornament
                                                  2. make a card
                                                  3. a layout

The best part for me was that I only used the items that we were given in each pack and added nothing apart from paint and or ink and a chipboard letter.

Here is a photo of our little group with Maria (owner of Scrapboxx) Sheree and Evana that was taken after one of the classes:

We were also treated to two demos during the weekend as part of our compulsory break.  Kareena from Scrappy Cow Margaret River showed us how to use glitter with the glue pad to embellish our pages and Maria showed us how to make her dodgy flowers lol, (omg how easy but with huge amounts of wow factor)

So totally awesome weekend and very much looking forward to August 2010 and the next Boxx Retreat....bring it on!!
