CC Weekend at Savvy!

This weekend we are cybercropping at Scrapbook Savvy! Still plenty of time to join in with deadline not until midnight Thursday 1st December.

So far I have managed to get Sara & Kerryn's challenges done, and hope to get some more done today when I head out for a scrappy afternoon with my besties and the kids.

Sara's Challenge is a colour challenge with the colour scheme looking like this...

And my take using the new November He's Savvy Kit, called Cannons.

And a closeup...

Next up is Kerryn's CC Sketch...

My take called Little Climber, using the new We're Savvy Kit for November (only two left in the store so be quick!)

And the token closeup, of nice are these Prima flowers! You get the full pack in the kit, you know... ;)

I'd love to see you playing along, the challenges are super easy and will get your mojo a-flowing for sure...with the chance to win some Savvy spendings, why wouldn't you play along!!!

There is a Witch...

....that has blessed me with her presence TWICE this year on retreats. I met this Witch online in the Scrapbooking Memories forum probably 8 years or so ago...and from the first online convo with her I just KNEW she was amazing.

This creative, beautiful, kind, free spirited lady means a lot to me...and I can't wait to see her again! Soon, eh Witchy?

I can't believe I haven't shared these yet, but here are a couple of super amazing pieces of artwork that the Scrapwitch - Lisa Oxley - put together for me at the retreats we've been at together. God love her, isn't she special!!

The first one, a page of Georgia she did for me at Camp Mojo, so bright & funky, just love it!

And then to brighten my world even more, and totally spoil me at the same time...a gorgeous canvas, again for Georgia, that she made for me at the Savvy Delights Retreat. I haven't got a close up as it went straight into the girl's room and has pride of place, but here is Witch & I and the beautiful piece she made me.

Thanks so much for your friendship, Lisa (aka Scrapwitch, Witch, Mushy, Kebab Eater!) means so much!! xxx

1st November Stuck Sketch

My take on this months first sketch is now up on the Stuck blog. Here's a look at the sketch...

And my take, again using this gorgeous kit from Scrapbooking From Scratch. And yes, I've used this kit to it!

Make sure you upload your take over on the Stuck blog before the end of the month :)

SFS Retreat 2011

An awesome weekend with some of the most beautiful ladies on the planet! I always have a ball at Peta's Retreat...I don't have to work but instead get to scrap to my hearts content, and just chill out. Thanks to everyone for making it an amazing break away...and I hope I got photos with everyone (my apologies if I missed you!).

Highlights of the weekend for me...

- Staying at Peta's house, always so welcome and feel 'at home'.
- A photo shoot with the amazing Sandie Mallon, she made me look stunning!
- 34 layouts scrapped, a retreat record for me.
- A weekend with my bestie who had an awesome time and smiled, laughed and had fun all weekend with me.
- Classes with Kel & Sandie, both amazing with 2 gorgeous layouts from each completed in the time, gotta love that!
- Sitting next to my cuz Donna, always have so much fun.
- Walks & chats with Alicia, Sara & Anthea.
- Meeting Emily for the first time, crazy funny girl!
- Hugs for Michelle, she's everyone's favourite ;)
- Cacking at Bev'N' per usual!

And lots more, can't remember them all and too many to keep listing...I'd be here all night! Basically four days of fun, laughs and enjoyment while scrapbooking at the same time...nothin' better.

I'll be back soon with some layout shares...just have to edit all the pics and sort them into blog posts first! Thanks for visiting!
