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! Later on in the day Mikayla got this photo… where was everyone?? At another demo… this one was done by Tracey and she was demonstrating the Tim Holtz sizzix dies and embossing folders… VERY cool! 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: And here’s some of Scrapbook Dreams: By this stage lots of people had started on the challenge pack and here’s the results:
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: At only 6 weeks he was extremely content to be carried and cuddled while Mum did some inking LOL
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! 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: Congratulations Lynne! We really hope you enjoy all your scrapping goodies :)
