Berry71Blue Challenge & Some Exciting News

Hi Girls,
Well the school holidays are over and I can finally get back into my groove.  It's been very hectic here at home and haven't had a lot of time to scrap or blog with all the running around, family visiting and everyone here sick with the flu, but I'm hoping this week will be better.

Exciting News
I have been invited to teach a class on Saturday 13th October by the lovely Ann Leavin at the Queensland Scrapbooking Retreat to be held in Noosa.. so excited!!  Here are the details and click HERE for a link to the blog site.


This Retreat we are heading to the beautiful Noosaville and the Ivory Palms Resort, staying in their three bedroom townhouses, self contained and stylish.  Why not spoil yourself at this gorgeous location and scrap the weekend away until your heart's content?

The cost of the weekend includes shared townhouse accommodation, all meals from Friday dinner to Sunday lunch (except breakfast), class & full kit, very generous goodie bag including 2 challenge packs, demos, workshops and lots of time to scrap, not to mention heaps of fun and lots of friendships to be made.  Prizes and giveaways top the weekend off!

A deposit of $50 is required to hold your booking; if you wish to pay in full, please use the deposit and balance payment modules below.  The part payment module is available to pay your balance off in instalments at your leisure making it easy on the budget.  If you don't have a Paypal account, please contact us via email address for bank details or to make other arrangements, we are very flexible.
Only 27 spaces available, so be quick if you don't want to miss out!!
