Penrith!

Thats where I have been for the past few days, at the paper and craft festival.

I had an absolute ball! Finally got to meet Sharryn, and see Chrissy again.

On the Thursday evening, I met up with Sonia, Michelle, Louise and Paula from Forever Always. What a gorgeous bunch of ladies. It was wonderful to meet them all, they made me feel so welcome and as though I had known them forever :). I have my fingers crossed that I am going to be able to go back up in Feb and go the the FA retreat :)

I stayed Thursday night in Penrith, and met up with Chrissy at the trade event. I took a couple of pages to the Bella! booth, for them to display. I wont share them just yet, as they will be going up on the Bella! blog :). Sharryn arrived at about 3:30, and we went over to the retail show for a bit of shopping! OMG, there were some yummies over there. Then we popped back over to the trade event.

After grabbing a quick but delicious chicken schnitzel at Panthers, we went back to our hotel and had a few drinks, and chatted....until 3AM!!!!!!! The three of us just clicked, and it was great! It's a pity we live so far apart, cos I could definately see myself spending lots of time with these two gorgeous girls!
Cant wait to scrap this pic, will be off to Kmart tomorrow to print it as my ink has run out :(
I have scrapped a few pages tonight with some of my new goodies, will take a pic and upload tomorrow....yeah right LOL, soon anyway ;)

Last month was my last with the scrap N crazy design team. I had so much fun and met heaps of wonderful girls on the forum there.

I was given some yummy paper trunk papers to play with.


I loved using them, they were almost luxurious, and I really liked using my gold ink on them. Has everyone seen and tried the Bella! inks? I LOVE them! They have the BEST colours!

We were given a theme to scrap to, friendship. So my first page was scrapped for a friend. This is Jorja, isnt she gorgeous! I might scrap this pic again though, not too happy with how this one turned out.

This is me and my best friend Narelle, she is about to have her first baby any day now :)

And this is Chrissy and I in Melbourne after paperiffic! Dont look too closely st me, I look like a stunned mullet LOL. LOVE this page though :)
So thats what I have been doing. I have also been working pretty much flat out, but that has calmed down a bit now.
Another little piece of news is that I finally cracked scrapbook creations :) They wanted 2 LO's but could only have one as the other has already been published :)
So stay tuned for the Bella pages on the blog, and also for some very exciting news ;)
