Scrap Weekend @ Pukerau

I had a creative and entertaining weekend away.  I'm not sure I'll ever look at laminators the same way again however.  I got really busy with my pages and project and was impressed with how much I could achieve in only the one weekend.  I packed well for the tasks at hand, taking my scrap trolley, scrap bag and a clear plastic underbed box with gear.  This was packing light for me!  But it was all I needed.  We were greeted with a gorgeous red and white bowl with scrapping goodies in it - doilies, feathers, yellow buttons, ribbon and washi tape.  We were given some more goodies later that evening - beautiful papers and a 6 x 6 pad to match - Miss Caroline by MME.   On  Friday eveneing I worked on some pages.  On Saturday morning I set myself the task of creating a smashbook of our trip to Auckland last year.  This took till after lunch and then I commenced some more pages.

Andrea arrived at about 11am with the Scrapbook Outlet shop and I checked out some of the new papers she had.  I loved some 'Authentique' papers, a couple of 7 Gypsies pages, A Boys Life, Childish and Alora.  Playing with some of these for the rest of the weekend proved very productive.  Here is some of what I created below...

Julie & Kim did a fabulous job of making the weekend special for all of us from the lolly table to the balloon popping for spot prizes (mine was for being studious!!!) and the meals were delicious too.  At the end I won a 'shopping' challenge prize which sees me as the proud owner of a green Tupperware lunch box from TupperClaire as well as a pot of prima flowers.
