What a lovely generous prize Sonia. My reason for wishing to attend is I would love to catch up with all the wonderful scrappy friends who attend from afar and to learn from Forever Always designers (what a great looking line up of classes) and I would like to bring my friend Leanne. Good luck every one it is always a wonderful wonderful weekend of laughs & scrapping x

WOW This competition is magnificent. When I saw this on the scrapbooking top 50 forum I thought I just have to enter right now. But then I saw this fab site and it's so distracting! Being a bit of a self taught novice I would devour every scrap (pardon the pun) of a retreat. Off the Page, stamping and hand made flowers would be 3 things I would love help with! Having never been to a reteat before I would take my mum bonnie and best friend dani to join in the fun. We all would love to meet up with other craft lovers and take a bit of crafty time out from the trials of everyday life. Good luck to everyone.

Sonia said...

good luck to you all.

Leah said...

Oh, that sounds just wonderful!

yummy4mummy said...

Oh wow, i would LOVE something like this. Being a dabbler in the crafts, and enjoying ALL of the above myself, i would be like a kid in a candy store!!
I am a mother to 2 beautiful boys, and i have not left either of their sides since i had my first a little over 4 years ago (shall we count in-utero time? Make that five!). A mummy weekend away is just what the doctor ordered!

connie said...

I am desperate to go on a retreat, but over here in "little ole South Australia". there is no such event! I would love to go, and make some new friends, and learn some of the amazing stuff like in the sneak peeks! Sadly, NONE of my friends scrapbook (...I think they are all too scared, seeing how much time I devote to it!) But I do have a friend into cardmaking, who I only get to see about 2 times a year, so I would twist her arm to come along with me!

Kylie said...

Oh count me in - I have been meaning to et to a retreat, but with DH's work I have not yet managed. Humm - now who to take:) Maybe I could get Dad to look after the kids for the weekend and take my Mum - or make a weekend of it and get a lovely friend to come from Tamworth:)

jodesmac said...

sounds wonderful, will see if i can get some girlfriends together

Fern said...

Found you via Corrie, as someone who's just started venturing into selling my handmade stuff at markets I love her blog.

And I think a holiday is definitely in order, between the death of my daughter, the official diagnosis of my Autistic son and just seemingly one lot of bad news after the next, I could really do with a weekend away to get stuck into some stitching and just relax with some wonderful crafters and have some grown up time and adult conversation :)

Sonia said...

jode, hope you can find some friends to come along with you if you win....

Fern, corrie's site is amazing. And our retreat sounds just like the dr order, lots of relaxing and crafting with like minded ladies always leaves you inspiration recharged.

ooohhh Sonia - you always were too generous! I would love to win a spot at your retreat and of course I'd bring the effervescent Sharryn. I would dearly love to learn a little bit about quilting - it looks sooooo gorgeous from your blog. Hope all is well with you. Chrissyxxx

Sonia said...

All is good thanks Chrissy, manic countdown till Retreat is on but it keeps me smiling!!! if not manic and busy.

Love to have you and Sharryn attending again - hope you have luck on your side!!

Kylene said...

Oh if only I could make it. Soooo jealous. Good luck girls with your plans and your entries. I can assure you, you will have a fantastic weekend away.

Linda M said...

What a lovely and very generous idea! I would love to attend to be able to scrap without the interruption of dd & dh :) I'd be online booking my flights from Bris-Vegas quicker than you could blink! I'd really love to learn how to master handmade flowers to use on my layouts. It would be lovely to make some new friends and share the experience with my Mum (an avid crafter from way back!).

Sonia - just seen your generous giveaway - I would love the chance to join one of your retreats again ... I have so missed them with Henry's health over the past year... it would be lovely to see everyone again. I would bring my SIL who has just gotten into scrapping.
Love always. Wens Vagner xxx
