Purplescraps retreat

I've just been to the best scrapbooking retreat at Bendigo Victoria. We met up at Tullamarine Airport then travelled together by car. It was great to finally meet up after 3 and a half years of talking online.There are some talented scrappers amongst them and we were hosted by Melinda at Scrapping'n'craft. Prizes were donated by most of the major scrapbooking suppliers. I was lucky enough to win a kaisercraft set of papers, paints, rhinestones and a wooden fibre winder and box set.(Plenty of work to complete that now). We were also given a bag of scrapbooking goodies each and a pink sturdy scrappers backpack from Creativ.We exchanged gifts hidden in a toilet roll, so I am now stocked up on brads, clips, hinges etc.There were so many donations and extra bits it was hard to fit it all in the suitcase.
We all wore purple on the first day and tiaras.When we went to the local hotel for dinner we got some strange looks. Photos will be put on here shortly.

Car accident,Macbeth and Teaching a lesson

I've been very quiet here lately following a car accident last week which has prevented me from scrapbooking or even typing on the computer. My bruises and broken sternum are slowly healing. I went to WaggaWagga to see CSU's production of Macbeth.My daughter was stage manager.It was an excellent production. This has led me to doing a layout about it.I'm featuring a vellum pocket with tartan ribbon and swirls(flourishes). It is coming up quite well.
I also ampreparing a lesson for our Purplescraps retreat next weekend. I'm getting excited about meeting the other girls from there.
