Scrapboxx October Retreat...

2 November 2008

Seriously...what can I say.... it was THE BEST!!!

Maria was the most beautiful hostess.... (this amazing woman who runs on red bulls).... never stops.... organising .... coordinating... and making sure everyone is happy.
From minute one... I felt welcomed...not only by Maria...but by her beautiful family as well.
It was so nice to spend the weekend being a part of their lives... it felt just like home...

Nic... well how wonderful was it to share my weekend with Nic and her gorgeous bubby belly... I couldnt have asked for a better roomie....

To catch up with the other DT girls...Leeann and Sheree.....that was awesome... and I could have hugged them a million times...

The girls who attended the retreat.....some I had met before....and some I met for the first time...what an incredibly friendly group.... everyone was so kind ....especially during my classes (my first for a group this size) ...thankfully I wasnt nervous at was like being in the room with a group of friends I had known in years.
I learnt so much....I was inspired by a room full of new ideas and techniques....and everyone was only to happy to teach and share.

Maria spoilt Nic and I on Monday by taking us to the most scrumptious restaurant 'Voyager Estate' for lunch.... the meal was just beautiful....and it was even more special as this is where Marias daughter Ash works... she joined us for lunch and gave us special 'heads up' on the menu.
Thanks are a sweetie. you can see...I could go on and on.... everything I did...and everyone I met contributed to it being an amazing Ill leave it at this....and just finish up with some piccies from the weekend....

Oh...and last word....if you are tossing up whether to go or not next year...... jump at the wont be dissapointed.... trust me!
