Im back from the Boxx retreat......

18 March 2009

...and I had the BEST time possible...Ill update and share all about it later.

But this morning....I REALLY want to share this...... as there is a limited time...and we want to get the word out to as many people as possible....I think Kim and Jane explain it perfectly.... so Im handing this over to Kim....

Here in Australia, we've all been affected by the devastation and recent heartbreak of the Victorian Bushfires which destroyed so many lives. Jane from Crafty Matters approached me several weeks ago about the possibility of joining forces and raising money for the victims of the bushfires and I thought it was an excellent idea.

Together we have designed two PDF design sheets which can be downloaded, printed out at home and used in your scrapbook layouts, cards and paper crafts. The @Home Support team girls Janelle, Mardi, Yvette and Mel have also donated their time and creativity to design samples showing you just how to use the PDF download designs. Also on board are members of Jane's Crafty Matters team who are also designing samples.

So we have a visual feast to share with you all.

In the classroom we will show you HOW to download and print out the designs as well as share with you a huge range of creations to inspire you. Our design sheets contain tags of all shapes and sizes plus journaling blocks which will add a creative touch to any project.

We invite you to be part of this great cause and come along and purchase this workshop. 100% of all proceeds will go directly to the Red Cross and their 2009 Victorian Bushfire Appeal. The class fee is $5.00 however, if you would like to donate more money to the appeal, simply adjust the QUANTITY in your shopping basket as you proceed through checkout. For example: to donate $10 you would add "2" of the Create to Recreate classes to your shopping basket. To donate $30 you would add "6" of the classes to your shopping cart etc.
