What did I get up to last weekend……….

Last weekend I was invited to join a great group of women to share a weekend of


Haven’t done what is now called by lots of scrappers as “Traditional Scrapbooking” for a long time.

We went to a lovely little place in the Blue Mountains called Kurajong, where we stayed at a place called

Merroo Christian Centre.


Click on the photo to see there great web site and hear the amazing Bell Birds.

As a child driving with my parents through this area I remember stopping and/or being told to wind down the windows to listen for the Bell Birds.

Waking up to them each morning was beautiful and brought back great memories.


So……what did I do while there.

Now, this was not a Stampin’ Up! event…..but I tried to stay using Stampin’ Up! products.

We were given some different challenges and the first one I did was this one.


and here is my take on this layout..


This photo was taken on my sisters farm in Lue, near Mudgee.

Here it is along with the Project Life page to go with it, I made my own cards to match.


In the next Challenge page we were given a bag of goodies and had to use 2 items on our page…

everything thing in my bag was girly and I have “BOYS”

…the lovely Sheena suggested I turn the button over and use the other side.

The “button and word Cherish” came from my bag, the papers are discontinued Stampin’ Up!

Christmas paper and the floral print comes from the current “All Year Long” Project Life cards


This is a few pages that I completed.

Scrapbooking doesn’t have to be just “Traditional” or just “Project Life”.

Sometimes there are those special moments/photo’s that need to be highlighted and Traditional Scrapping works well.

Have fun with what you are doing.

(By the way I completed over 23 pages…whooo Hooo!, 2009 album almost completed)
