Hi everyone,

My good friend Trina and I got home yesterday evening after an amazing weekend away with Scrapstars. What a wonderful time was had by all :o)

My name badge
There were lots of fun challenges with fab prizes to be won - the first one was to make a name badge featuring a butterfly, a flower, a brad and a button. Trina and I had a great time making ours one evening a few weeks ago. The winner was a gorgeous badge in the shape of a five bar gate, really beautifully done, wish I had a picture of that to show you.

This was our first scrappy retreat and we had been looking forward to it for months - we knew it would be good, but this surpassed all our expectations. From the minute we arrived on Friday, until we left on Sunday, we were showered with lovely things and treated to a constant supply of chocolate and cake (essential crafting supplies!) and the whole weekend was packed with fun activities - classes, challenges, games, make-and-takes - and punctuated with delicious food (what more could we want?!)

I've only just finished unpacking my bags - just look at all the goodies I brought home to play with ...

Piled front and centre you can see all my UFOs - we did seven classes altogether and I just couldn't finish them all. There is a mini album on the top, and under that are all my pages, along with bags full of leftover supplies - enough to keep me busy for quite a while :o)

Right now, I need to go find some space in my little room for all this new goodness ...

Thanks for popping in today - I'll be back soon to show you some finished projects.
