Scrappy Weekend with Sara

I was lucky enough to have a visitor staying with me last weekend from QLD, my friend and fellow Savvy scrapper & kit designer Sara.

We had a great time, from Krispy Kremes to Savvy Class to Delights Crop to Evermore to cruisy couch time...we were just catching up and laughing a lot, and generally spending some time in real life instead of the facebook chat that usually sees us communicating each day.  The time flew and I was dropping her back to the airport before I knew it...but all going well she'll be back in just a couple of weeks to join me with the Scrapbook Savvy Store at Long Point Retreat.

So first up, we had a class here at Scrapbook Savvy on the Friday night.  My classes are now being held fortnightly and just about booking out before I get a chance to advertise them!  I'm loving sharing tips and techniques with my local girls, and they are loving getting FOUR pages guaranteed from just a few hours scrapping with me....along with the best coffee around, of course ;)

My class this time was Easter theme, and the class layouts looked like this...the first one was actually the May Cybercrop Sketch, a great way to start me on a roll when I'm working out class layouts!


All the girls had a great night and got their layouts completed, I LOVE making them get messy with inks and paints and templates, so fun!

On the Saturday Sara & I spent the day at my local scrapbook shop Scrapbooking Delights with San, it went so fast and I only managed two layouts on the day...but better than nothing!

The first is my layout for my upcoming June BIG Savvy Sketch reveal coming up on the 15th, here's a peek...

The next one was a 'just because' layout which I don't seem to do enough of!  This was pure fun and I love the layered washi background behind my photo...

A closeup of the gorgeous Prima flower I picked up from Delights with a cluster of flair, buttons & some Flourish With A Bling over some ribbon.

And the other cluster with some more flowers, journal spot and a gorgeous flair button from A Lil Somethin.

We went to see Evermore on the Saturday night, which was a great show although never long enough really!

This would've had to be my most favourite song of the night...
I also managed a few SMASH pages during our lazy Sunday, but you can check them out over on the Savvy blog here.

I am so grateful for the friends I've made online due to this scrappy life I've chosen for myself, people I never would have known or met in my 'real life'. 

Until next time Miss Sara, I hope I got you inspired to get scrapping again and that you enjoyed your stay with me....I know I did xxx


  1. So many gorgeous creations, Sar!! Gorgeousness overload :D :D
    Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend :-) :-)

  2. Thank you so much for having me! I had a fabulous weekend even if I was sick. I can't wait to come down again very soon! Hopefully I can manage more pages this time around.
