Back from Outback Road Trip

Hi Everyone,

It's been a long time between posts because I've been travelling around rural Australia. My destination was North Shields in South Australia (near Port Lincoln, the seafood capital of Australia, also known for its Great White Shark population) for a scrapbooking retreat called escape2create. It was fabulous, organised by a hard-working and highly creative group of ladies. You can read and view more about it here. One of the highlights for me was winning first pick of a vast collection of lucky draw prizes. Thanks to the organisers and generous sponsors, I brought home a Cuttle Bug with two embossing folders. Very cool.

The picture above shows the result of Friday night's Little House class. Not my usual thing but a nice change from a card or scrapbook page. Very cute and fun. Here's a couple more:

More thanks to Amanda Hall (2008 Scrapbooking Memories Master) and her husband Greg for their warm welcome at their grain farm near Cummins. It was also great to catch up with Bev Mantle and Alisa Tilsner, two Stampin' Up! demonstrators, who are local to Port Lincoln. Bev is busy preparing for her daughter's wedding this coming weekend - good luck Kylie.

I hit the ground in Sydney running, and am back working. There's lots going on and heaps of creativity to share with you. The plan is to post lots this week so please check back if you can.

Hope you're all keeping well and are as lucky as me to be crafting and seeing more of beautiful Australia.

Love from Crafty Kim
