Scrappy Weekend!

Oooops been a bit missing in action!  The good part of the MIA was that I had a wonderful scrappy week-end away with my fellow Twilight Addicts! :)  We had an awsome time, those girls are just sooo much fun and they had me laughing so much I was almost crying, we had plenty of interesting conversations and ate loads of really yummy cakes baked by Karen, including the best coffee walnut cake I have ever had!

This was the group photo
Heather (Heatherblossom), Karen (Badgerleader), Gemma, Jess, Lisa (seated), Dee (seated), Carin (2Angels), Alison (Alibri) (seated), and Jill (Wineshiraz) standing.

Ok and then around the scrapping table starting at my right was the lovely Heather
 Then we had Fiddle de Dee and Alison and her bump
Then Karen, the coffee and walnut cake queen 
Then Jess
Then Lisa who organised everything and is our TA glue!
(and also encourages my latest punch obsession (that's my excuse and I am sticking to it ;) )
Then Gemma

Then lastly on my left was Jill

I also have to include a photo of the gorgeous Twilight cupcakes made by Karen especially for our Twilight Addicts weekend!  With a secret vampire surprise inside!

I discovered that I am not very good at scrapping when there are lots of people around!  I don't know if it was that I was too distracted by the talking or what but I only did one layout the whole weekend!  I haven't photographed that yet but in the meantime I have a card to share.

We were challenged to make a card including some valentines candy, I used the packaging from a box of Bo Bunny Brads to put some chocolate hearts in, so this is what Paul will be getting this year!

 I also had some fun using the stamps and some shrink plastic, I haven't done that in ages!
Supplies used:
Crush Cutie Pie
6x6 Crush Paper Pad
Coordinating Double Dot - Licorice Dot
Glitter Crush Layered Chipboard
Crush Stamps
Crush Rub-ons
Double Dot Ribbon
Packaging from Bo Bunny Brads
Shrink Plastic, ribbon, liquid pearls, Alphabet stickers

Ok I really will be back in a couple of days this time, with some more items, I promise...... ;) (even though blogger is trying to make me old tonight and doing strange layout things!)

Great photo's Carin! It really was a great weekend and lovely to meet you. I found it difficult to scrap too with so much else going on!

Love the Valentine card and what a fab idea to use the brad packet for the treat - will have to think of something along those lines for Rs card next year - but where will I find packaging large enough to cram a load of mince pies into LOL!!

Great piccies of the weekend - if you could email them to me that would be lovely.

I must admit I don't get much done when lots of other people are around and I am not very good at working in a small space - I like to spread out with my stash LOL!!!

It was lovely to meet you at the weekend and I will always have a fit of the giggles in future when asking for icecream ROFL!!!
