A Weekend Away...

Well I had a great weekend away with Alli and Sharon at the Scrappin' Outback Retreat in Hyden...they are a great bunch of girls out there so it is always a fun weekend!

It is the third one I have taught at and hopefully they are not sick of me yet! It is fabulously organised and run by Karen so a pleasure to be there.

All the classes went well and people were really pleased to get projects finished! And I agree! I managed four layouts with Alli and a layout and project with Sharon...all completed in one and a half days - plus I taught two classes!

This first layout is from Alli's "brads and things" class...but I did mine a little differently and then didn't actually use any brads! Really like this page! The next three layouts are Alli's class on how to scrap lots of photos quickly! And I did three layouts really quickly! Great way to get some layouts done!

I will upload my stuff from Sharon's classes soon! Check out Alli and Sharon's blogs for pics and other version of events! And you can see my fab pic of the Tin Man there too!!! I am lining my dad up to make some metal sculptures like these for me!

E was VERY excited to see me...Mum and Dad had moved in to look after her...I know she had a ball with them...but it was wonderful to get lots of hugs and cuddles and to hear her say "I missed you..I missed you all the time" over and over again! And more again today! I missed her too but was so busy the time went very fast.

Having made it into the Top 10 I have to get cracking this week and do my first challenge for the Scrapbook Outlet NZ design team competition!

Hope you are having a good day - Lissy

Hello Lissy

I am not sure if you will remember me but I am a member at

I found the link to your blog through Megan Stephenson's blog. I hope it is ok for me to come and read your blog and them leave comments every so often.

It is nice to read your news and see more of your wonderful photos and layouts. I have always loved your scrapping creations and remember drooling over them on the Boxx gallery when you used to hang around there.

So glad to read you have had a fun week end away, just what you need. As always your new layouts look terrific.

Your daughter sure is growing up. She is as cute and pretty as I remembered.

Have a great week Lissy and take good care of yourself. From Susan@Scrapboxx
