September seemed such a short month, but that was most probably due to the RETREAT….with my head down preparing and organising loads of fun…..and it working, so much so we all had a blast…just look at these couple of photos…can’t you tell we had so much fun!!!

Unfortunately we have some Sad NEWS….Sharryn Thomson, has had to step down from her Design Team Position. I am sad that Sharryn has had to make this decision, and I know it was a tough one for her to make. But with work, family and lifestyle commitments, sometimes there is just one to many hats too shuffle as a mum. So Sharryn, thank you for your wonderful contribution to the FA family, but once adopted, you are always apart of the family…and we are sure you will still be hanging out with us in the forum, doing challenges, and inspiring us with your work in that manner. Sharryn has also told us that she will definitely be a face and troublemaker causing havoc {no not really, just loads of laughter – those are the retreat photo’s I can’t share} at retreats.
