We will also be fully catered for all of our meals by gourmet cook & host, Marion. Those who attended last year will remember how wonderfully we were looked after – the food was awesome!!!

The three workshops held over the weekend, all have a full product pack included.
Aside from the workshops and extra optional challenges, the rest of the weekend is freestyle scrapping!!! So come along and do as many pages as you can! All you need to bring are your photos, and as many scrapping materials as you can fit in your car!
