On the 2nd July I was very lucky to be able to attend the Kaisercraft Retailers Day in Geelong with Jo from Scrapbookit.
Besides all of the yummy food that we were provided with we got to shop in the factory.....we got to chat to all of the designers and we did a couple of layouts with Mel Kennedy using the new collection Sears and Son. We had a ball.
Here are the layouts that I created.
These are great papers for all of those males in our lives.
I hope that all of the males in my life.....Jason, Dad, John and Dennis have a wonderful Father's Day on Sunday.
Happy Father's Day!
I'm back.....as promised 
to share some more of the things that have been happening in my scrapbooking world...

Not so long ago I received an unexpected email from the editor of the Caravan and Motorhome On Tour Magazine. She asked me if I could be part of a craft feature in their magazine.
Initially, I was gobsmacked. I actually thought someone was playing a practical joke on me and were having me on. After showing Jason he convinced me that maybe I should take the email seriously and reply to it.....which I did!
No, it was no joke. I then provided the magazine with lots of images and information for them to put together the feature which featured caravaners and motorhome travellers that crafted whilst on the road.

This is the feature (sorry about the pic!)
I hear you asking.....how did they know to contact me????
I had submitted and had accepted me layout 'Loved' to CK. The editor of this magazine knew that I had created that layout in our caravan whilst on holiday....she passed my name on.
Funny how things happen!

Last month's challenge at Scrapbookit saw me creating with Kaisercraft's Check In collection.
I made several bits and pieces with this collection and I still have heaps left over.
I created this Bon Voyage card for the card challenge...
For the second part of the month I created some Tags....
I was very excited to be able to create some layouts from our Thailand trip using this collection. I love how they came up. The first layout is of one of our most favourite activities whilst in Thailand....Elephant Ride.
The second layout is of my very cheeky little man at the age of 4. His first overseas holiday (hopefully of many in his lifetime), which he took in his stride...these photos were of him entertaining us at Singapore Airport.
Well, I hope this inspires you to pull out some photos that are hidden away and scrap till your hearts content.
Until next time,
It has been such a long time since I last posted...but I have been doing HEAPS of creating!
To make up for it I am going to try and share something that I have been doing everyday over the next week.....lets see how I go!

I might start with the weekend just gone...
The weekend just gone saw the first retreat for Joanne and Scrapbookit. It was such a wonderful weekend. We stayed at the High Country Motor Inn, Bright and had an absolute ball. Here are some happy snaps....
We got heaps of scrapping done and were treated to awesome food, great company and plenty of laughs and good fun. 

I ran a class on Sunday morning at the retreat. It was a layout class which included a woven/thatched mat for the photo and used 'Save the Date' by Kaisercraft.
Here is the layout...
If you like this layout and are keen to give it a shot....Jo has some kits including instructions and the materials needed in store @ Scrapbookit - why not pop on over and grab one.

Jo ran an OTP class with the Kaisercraft Wishing Well....but I haven't completed mine yet.

Janene ran a mini album class using the Simple Stories 'Summer Fresh' range.
Here are Janene's photos....(I haven't taken any of mine yet)
We had an awesome weekend......looking forward to the next retreat in May 2013.
I did do a few of my own personal things at the retreat and was very impressed with what I produced....I will get back this week and share them with you.

If you haven't seen my latest post at Scrapbookit, why not pop over to the blog and spread some love. We love hearing your thoughts! Head to scrapbookitblog.blogspot.com

Can't wait to come back and share some more with you over the next few days....see you then.
