This past weekend was the Scrap Addicts' annual Christmas scrapbooking retreat at Good Shepherd in Magaliesburg. As always, it was an awesome, amazing and incredible weekend together, despite the scorching temperatures which hovered around 38 degrees all weekend. When we left on Monday afternoon, the temperature gauge in my car said that it was 41 degrees outside in the shade!
We arrived on Friday afternoon, unpacked and started scrapping after catching up over coffee.
The calm before the storm...this room in the convent looks out over Hartbeespoort Dam - a million dollar view. We bought Christmas tablecloths and lights for everyone, which was a take home gift after the weekend
We sat outside in the early evening and opened prezzies - we got thoroughly spoilt with gifts from each other - thanks ladies!!
We did some shopping at Jasmyn on Saturday morning, a lovely farmers market near the convent. And we ate delicious icecream...
When we got back to the convent, we shared our quarterly scrap kits / challenge pages which we each design for the group
this is Linda's page
this is Lynn's page
this is Leonie's page
and my page...
we love the old convent, even if it is a bit run down and needs a lot of work
In the late afternoon after dinner, we strolled down to the youth centre to walk the beautiful labyrinth
On Monday morning, we each wrote a Dear Santa list...
Exhausted after a beautiful weekend of scrapbooking and special friendship, we headed home on Monday after lunch; we'll be back next year
