oh what fun...

i am having slowly building up the shopping cart from hell for our retreat!! ....there is so much wonderful scrapping goodies out there to choose from that the decisions are some times very hard just because i'd like to give you everything...LOL...

i am trying to come up with a good mix of items as well as some new tools for us to play with that will challenge us at the same is after all a challenge gorgeous mum has also started crocheting us doileys and flowers for our kits!

i have also started thinking about the actual challenges themselves and i have decided i am going to throw you a little curve ball that i think you will like should you choose to accept the challenge....i say it that way because even though i set the retreat up as a challenge weekend should you choose to simply do your own thing you's not like i am going to beat you over the head with my baseball bat should you not want to use the challenges....well i don't think i will..mmmmmmm thinking thinking thinking.....nah i won't ...i can trust me....PMSL!!!!

while i am still at the looking stage you can still suggest items you'd love in the have a look around and if there is anything that you are totally in love with and would like included if possible please don't hesitate to ask me...asking doesn't hurt afterall.....also there are just three places left so if yu have a friend who may be interested in joining us please let me know asap.....

happy scrapping girls and i'll be back soon with some preview pics ....hehehehe!!!
