Have you tried digital scrapbooking?
Are you interested in trying it?
I am thinking of setting aside some time at the retreat to support anyone keen to give it a go...however I have only used 'gimp' which is a free software that works a bit like Photoshop.
If you are keen, let me know and I can send some things you will need to download.
You will need to bring your own laptop with the downloads saved to it already and some photos in your computer ready to 'scrap' pixel style.
This will be a super simple beginners style tutorial, any involvement from anyone who has more experience is welcome!


P.S. There is no extra cost for this tutorial!

a month away

not untill we go skiing (unless you want to)... but till the Scrap Retreat
If you struggle to 'pare' down your supplies and need to for travel purposes...might be time to start :-)

Registrations close on Friday - check previous posts for the link to the registration form and deposit information.

We had a really 'white' frost this morning and it's set to be -2 again tonight so think warm thoughts and thermals!

Huge thanks to those ladies who have already paid their deposits/full fees :-) There will be other blog giveaways for retreaters in the next few weeks so make sure you check back regularly!

Remember that the last working day of May is the final date for your registration and there are only a couple of spaces left at this stage. Yay.

P.S. I had my first Chilli Chocolate of the Season today...they will be avaliable on Winter Fest Opening Night for those who haven't had the pleasure of one of these yet...and for those who know how good they are!
