A Simply Superb Farewell

Today, I sadly attended my last Sunday scrap with the Simply Crafty Club. The sneaky ladies had organised a scrummy lunch of quiche, salad, sandwiches and chicken wings not to mention delicious desserts. They also presented me with a lovely card, Camera House vouchers and each lady made me a lovely tag to remember them by. I was completely overwhelmed and will really miss the friendships I have made and nurtured over the past 7yrs. Thank you to you all. I hope to return for at least one of the retreats next year.
Box packing is well underway and they are slowly stacking up. We still don't have a house to move to in Brisbane but will remedy that in the next week. Only 4 more weeks of work! It almost feels like I am going on maternity leave again. It's more like Mummy leave and it will be very special to spend the whole school holidays exploring our new city with the children.
Have a good week.

Pro Marker Pens

To all of my scrapping friends, I just wanted to post a LINK to a blog with a great competition to win a set of newly released 148 Pro Marker pens. They are from a UK based company and are alcohol based ink pens great for colouring in stamped pictures that blend very well - same as Copic but cheaper. Just leave a comment by 14th November.
In other news I am starting to get organised and am packing some gear. I have also had another major throw out which I think will continue until we move. Our house sale is progressing just as it should. We don't have a rental yet but found out that we have to live in the same suburb as the school which will narrow our search down greatly. I don't think finding a house is going to be an easy task - think positively Rachael!!
The weekend was very restful without any children's sport. Nick attended a Halloween party on Sunday morning and had a lovely time. Penny and I went to the beach together with another Mum and her kids. It was beautiful building sandcastles and wallowing in the shallows.
I'm busy trying to put another scrap booking LO together at present but am easily distracted and find there are so many other things I should do.
Have a good week.
