Scrapbooking weekend

The Scrap Addicts group spent a weekend at Good Shepherd Retreat in the Magaliesburg during July.  We totally adore this place - it's very basic but the beds are good, the food is basic but fine (we're just happy that someone else cooks the food, serves it to us and then cleans up afterwards!), the thick walls of the convent keep the place warm during winter, the bathrooms are adequate, and best of all - we have the whole convent to ourselves.  The weather was wonderfully warm  and we had an awesome awesome time scrapbooking together.
Lynn and I confessed that we 'got lost' on the way to the convent, and had to stop somewhere for refreshments.  We don't know why but the other ladies held this against us for most of the weekend...

Lynn spoilt us with lots of goodies including Heat Holders socks 

the sunsets over the dam are stunning, especially if there are clouds about

Every quarter, we each design a kit for the group.  This is Lynn's gorgeous page 

Leonie is the queen of embellishments - such a beautiful layout! 

Linda's awesome layout 

Lynette designed this lovely layout 

...and my layout 

We had 90 minutes of loadshedding on Saturday night.   We are such tough capable South Africans; we simply put our headlamps and camping lamps on and carried on scrapbooking!

I was still on crutches recovering from foot surgery and a bad cold.  The ladies helped me so much with everything, carrying food trays and carrying all my scrapbooking supplies for me - thank you!

  1. A wonderful post about an awesome weekend ... I was just saying to Richard that I am shocked that the ladies kept threatening us that they were going to have waffles and leave us behind!!!!

    The sunsets at the dam sure are amazing!!
