Retreat =D

Retreat was SOOOO much fun!!!

I took Thursday off work to pack, and boy oh boy did l need it! I got my brand new trolley and bags out and filled them to the brim. Printed off photos and triple checked my list of things to take.

On Friday (which l also had off work) was the day of the retreat, but before l went, mum and l went to the Papercraft Festival at Penrith Panthers. We were in the

door right on 10am, and we were ready to shop! I picked up a cricut cartridge, lots of chipboard titles, thickers, copic markers and lots more. It got pretty packed towards lunch time, but luckily mum and l had finished so we had lunch together at Panthers.

Afterwards l went to the retreat, the ladies were so nice. I unpacked my things and got settled into the room that Chantal and l were going to share. Quite a decent sized r
oom too.
I ended up almost finishing all of the LRPBS album, only 2 towns to g
o, Silverton and our return to Lightning Ridge. Pretty stoked its almost done. I also did a layout on Bella, a double page on Max and another double with no photos yet. I also made a clipboard for a challenge and did some copic colouring. I also made 23 xmas cards, making the total 38 - l wonder if that will be enough this year?!?
I won a game of bingo, and l won a donated prize at the auction, all proceeds going towards cancer research.
Now for some Stampin' Up! fun!

Last night my mum and l went up to Lawson to participate in the Stamp-a-stack held by my upline, Pauline. She designed these beautiful cards and we all made 5 of each:

I have also finished (finally) the canvas l made:

I haven't got any pictures of the layouts from retreat, but l am hoping to get them up soon =)
Have a great week!
