The July Scraptastic was GREAT!

I’ve finally gathered some energy after the Scraptastic weekend.  What a fun time… so much inspiration and so many new ideas!

Firstly a BIG thank you to everyone who supported this event and helped out in lots of different ways… we couldn’t have done it without you :)

We had some really good demonstrations including one from Lynne who showed us 4 different ways to make our own flowers… so simple but sooo effective!Lynns demo Later on in the day Mikayla got this photo… where was everyone??Where is everyone At another demo… this one was done by Tracey and she was demonstrating the Tim Holtz sizzix dies and embossing folders… VERY cool!Tracey's Demo While everyone was busy doing that Mikayla managed to get a couple of photos of our scrapping stalls… here’s some of what Creative Bugs had in stock:Creative Bugs And here’s some of Scrapbook Dreams:Scrapbook Dreams By this stage lots of people had started on the challenge pack and here’s the results:  

There were so many wonderful layouts created with the challenge pack but here is the winning layout created by Lynne:

If you’d like to grab your own challenge pack we’ve got some available at Scrapbook Dreams :)

Some of the ladies spent the afternoon doing the Grungeboard Album class… and their albums were stunning!!!  Sorry we were so busy that I forgot to get any photos.  However Rangi made it over for the class with little Isaac and ‘Auntie Tracey’ was in baby heaven:Auntie Tracey At only 6 weeks he was extremely content to be carried and cuddled while Mum did some inking LOL

There were LOTS of prizes handed out during the day… here’s a peek at the prize table:Retreat info and prizes Each one of those little envelopes on the ribbon represents another prize! 

Along with the challenge pack competition and Scrapbookers bingo we also had the Bossy Scrapper challenge… it was the quietest time of the whole day while everyone was concentrating!Bossy Scrapper Jane won the Bossy Scrapper but unfortunately I didn’t get a photo of the winning layout so if you could email me one that would be GREAT!

By the end of the night there was only one prize left to go… and it was a good one (valued at over $200)… the Queen of the Crop!  And the winner was Lynne from Tauranga:Queen of the Crop Congratulations Lynne!  We really hope you enjoy all your scrapping goodies :)
