One more sleep ...

... and then I'm off to Warana in Queensland for the Scrapchat Retreat!! Oh yay - it seems like AGES ago that I threw caution to the wind and decided to go along to the Qld retreat ... got a great deal on flights, so just couldn't resist going along :D

I'm all packed - just the one (large-ish) suitcase full of scrapping supplies, oh, and a few clothes! Not many though ... scrapping and socialising will be the standing order for the weekend, so who needs fancy schmancy clothes? Trackies and PJs for me ... all the way!! It was so hard deciding what supplies to pack ... I have a multitude of patterned paper at my disposal here at home, and cutting it down to a handful of sheets (ok, well 1.5kg of paper - about 50 sheets!!) was a tough job! And don't START me on the cardstock :)

I've got a selection of embellies packed, and threw in my stamps, ribbons, all my flowers (couldn't leave them behind!), my rubons, chipboard, and the inks and H2Os as well ... some buttons, some bling, and it all rounds out at a nice even 20kg. Not bad, I reckon! I decided to leave most of my tools at home (they would only take up valuable scrap supply space!), as I figure with 17 other people at the retreat, if I don't take something, there will be another 17 there for me to borrow ...

I'm very much looking forward to seeing Gypsy again, and also meeting all the other girls - the lovely ScrapManda has very kindly offered to come collect me from the airport - thanks Manda :D

I'm looking forward to seeing the lovely Chelle in scrapping action ... to sampling from the slushie machine (thanks to Peggy), which I have heard so much about ... and also to hearing Lexie on the Singstar (not too shabby at all from what I hear!) ... and to going for a walk on the beach in the morning ... and to having just an all-round awesome time.

If I get one thing completed this weekend, I'll be happy .... :D

I'll post up some pics on my return!

Talk to you soon,
