Craft retreat and GOOD NEWS!

A couple of times a year I organise a craft retreat with a group of friends
Sandra and I host this at the shop penrith crafts the gang arrived Friday and stayed until Sunday afternoon,
We had a brilliant time and thanks to the group of girls the weekend was a huge success again. plenty of crafting, lots of chatting, some shopping and oh so many laughs,
My sides are still aching!!! thanks to Mands!!
I did not make as much as the rest of the gang but here are a couple of my creations
This is my first Crimbo card I use a lovely image sent to me by my good friend Kaz
This is a book to scrap my ideas for my wedding next year!
YES I said wedding! YAY!
So therefore my good news is I'm getting married next year! te ehhehehee!! that was my other birthday surprise but I could not say till now as I wanted it to be a surprise for the craft retreat girls too! although this book is No where near finished I am adding it to the simon says stamps challenge but I had a fab time playing with the bind it all and a new collection of perfect pearls to my craft stash! they are very yummi and so so pretty! I used cathy let me borrow her swirl stamp which I now need to buy a set as I love it and want to use it on my invitations
