Boxx Retreat

Well I survived the retreat very well. We were all very well behaved girls. Goes to show how crazy our lives have become over the last year... we were in bed by 11:00 on Saturday night, we were all so tired!!

But I got the rest of my EDM LO's done... not much else though!

We stopped off at Cowaramup on the way down and got some yummy fudge from the Candy Cow, and some of the most beautiful pure natural moisturiser from Moon Haven {stopped on the way home as well to get the cleanser and toner - perfect stuff}, we also stopped off at the Watershed Winery and did some tastings and naturally a couple of bottles had to follow me home!

Arrived a bit early so went and said hello to the bar Laughing then when Maria arrived, grabbed our room keys, unpacked and went and settled in at the scrap room and started getting things done.

We did meet and greet. Still not comfortable with the set up of this, takes so long saying hello to 70 women - you have no throat left at the end of it. But there really is no other way to get to meet everyone so really it does work well... just very loud!!

Then Make and Take which was a book to hold all the cards we just swapped in the meet and greet. Great little book. Used a Cricut, Quickutz and Doodled {well I tried to Doodle... it's not what I'm good at!!}

Then we scrapped and ate and drank for the rest of the weekend!!

On the way home we got some shots of the lighthouse then booted it home... where I slept from 11:00 to just now!! Bit tired and have a cold {Kim likes to share... she so thoughtful!!} But Kel was happy because since I slept in, he didn't get to school!

Was great to see Maria, Erica, Nic and Ali again... and to meet Roz and Zina. Such talented lovely girls all of them.

Anyways... here's the rest of my EDM layouts! I have the title pages to do and then it's ready to go!

My Life / Then & Now:

This one is to have hidden journalling about depression... and darn it, just realised it's missing the HS Silhouette!! Best fix that!

And this is THAT photo yet again... but I love it!


Creativity / Hobbies:

I am still yet to download all my pics {well the whole 10 of them}... LOL!! Will share when I get around to that bit!


  1. Mistra. Wow. So many gorgeous layouts. You are so productive .... I love coming to see what you have done.

    Have to ask.... what paper did you use for Chick Flicks. I am having a love affair with the colour story. Could you please let me know.

    Keep well.
