RETREAT 20-22 MARCH 2014

Hi Scrappers

Can you believe that it's only 2 months away until our next retreat!  Unbelievable.  Loads of people already asking loads of questions and excitement is clearly very high!

We seem to have found our resident home for our scrap retreats .... Meulstroom Lodge!  We love the room that we use to scrapbook in!!!!  Also the accomodation and meals are stunning!!!!

Our paper order left the USA last night ... which is always a relief knowing it's on its way!  As usual you are able to choose which papers you would like to use for the retreat:

Kit 1 - Expressions:
The Kaisercraft Expressions range has loads of amazing colours!!!  Won't be difficult to create 6 double page layouts from this awesome variety.  Loads of extra goodies will be included to make this kit wow!

Kit 2 - Betsy's & Wanderlust:
For this kit we have chosen two different Kaiser collection kits to create the 6 double page layouts.  The one is a travel pack and the other has a nice "old fashioned" feel (we have only added 3 images per collection). Once again this kit too will have loads of goodies too!!

Costs for Retreat:

Costings have gone up slightly ... this is so we can add more goodies to your kits!!!  Nothing more exciting than opening up your kit and finding decent scrapbooking stash!

Attending R2,350-00: (this includes accommodation, meals, goodie bag, prizes and more than enough stock to do a minimum of 6 double page layouts.  At our last retreat some ladies were able to do another 3 layouts with the leftover stock!)
Non-Attending: R1,550-00 (goodie bag & entire kit)

If you are interested in joining us please send me an email and I will send banking details.  A R500-00 non-refundable deposit will secure your spot.   Full payment for the retreat only needs to be paid by the end of February ...

Hope to see you at our retreat!!!!
