Shopping and Laughter

Val and I had a fantastic time is Brisbane this past weekend. We went up for the scrapbooking convention and had such fun. I am also very happy to say that I didn't spend much money (can't say the same for Val though)

We each did a class on the Saturday, Val made a beautiful layout and I came out of my class with a not so nice memo board. Our classes on Sunday though were fantabulous and I made the cutest little file folder thingie with Lynette Carrol. She is an Aussie (living in USA) and has been designing for K&Co. She told us on the weekend that her family are moving back to Australia for 6 months of the year.

I also have a layout to share but you are going to have to wait for that as it is for the Butterfly Crafts Challenge. I will show you on the 15th.....
Am getting excited now that I have booked the retreat. In case you were not aware Kim Archer is holding a mammoth retreat not to be missed the first weekend in November. Honestly you would be a total fool to miss this one. You get to meet Mardi, Janelle, Yvette, Kim and last but not least Mel. It promises to be a weekend to out shine all weekends.
I am currently sitting here in my craft room with the heater on as it is absolutely freezing here and has been the past couple of days. I think it is going to get down to 4 degrees here tonight. Can't remember the last time it was this cold. Brrrrrrr
We have been trying to book a cruise for September but seeing as the boats take limited numbers of youth we cannot get on one until the end of March 2010! Looks like we have to go back to the original plan of a week in Fiji.
The time has come for me to go and get the rug rats into bed where it will be nice and warm and cosy. I hope this post finds you all well, happy, safe and most importantly - WARM
