Well I started typing this just after camp and then things got on top of me with child care problems so that’s why this is late,  but hey better late than never……..

Where do I start……..Last Thursday I packed up the car and headed to Lou’s place to pick her and Lynley up and headed out of town towards Cromwell.  The car was so full of stuff I couldn’t see out the back window…LOL! It was a great trip there with lots of laughs and talking all the way.  We got to Cromwell around 4.30pm  and went to the house and meet Nik there. We had some tea and set up the tables and straight into scrapbooking…..LOL!  There was only 8 of us for the weekend but 2 extra’s come on Saturday to shop at the products Meg from SE and Andrea from SBO had there.  Andrea come and stay on the Saturday night and did some scrapbooking to.  The weather was great and wasn’t that cold which was good.  I was running around one day with no socks on.

Everyone that was there did some stunning work and there was lots of challenges going on and make and takes over the weekend.  There were different challenges over the weekend and if we did them we got points per layout we did and there were prices at the end of the weekend.  There were three of us that did all the challenges and guess who won first pick………..ME!!  SO I won Nic Howards new book…..YAHOO for me!  I did a layout that Jo had done in July’s kit from SE and that turned out beautiful.  Here are some of the layouts I did while away…

WOW! that was a misson to upload to here….LOL!  The last two are cards.  And here are some more photos….

It was a great weekend away and can’t wait till next time.  Thanks to Lara and Nik for everything. You do put on a fab weekend for us all. And also thanks to Meg at Scrapbook Essentials and Andrea at Scrapbook Outlet for a wonderful weekend of shopping and product.  It was nice to finally meet Andrea but it was a bit of a shame Meg couldn’t make it.  But there is always next time Meg……even if I have to drive in Invercargill first to pick you up, you are coming Meg…….LOL!!

Well that is the longest post I have ever made I think, better finished off now so till next time,

 Cya!
