On the Road again.....

Did you start singing the song? 
I just can't wait to get on the road again the life I love is making music with my friends..... 
we could change it to "the life I love is scrapping with my friends"
Now you are humming along to Willie Nelson... 
The next 4 weeks will see Barry & the SFS team travel over 2500kms  across 2 states to retreat with 60 plus crafting friends.

Our first adventure is to Victoria in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges
Malinda Gardner has organised for a 2nd year a fantstic venue and a talented line up of 25 Scrapping friends to get together for 3 days of relaxing crafting fun.

Michelle, Leonie & Myself will head off on Wednesday morning on our annual road trip leaving a day early giving us shopping day in the CBD prior to heading to retreat - can't got to Melbourne without shopping ;)

Our 2nd retreat for March is the debut retreat for SFS @Scrap Girls Retreats
in Castlereagh NSW.

I really cannot wait to show the dedicated Scrap Girl attendees what SFS has to offer.
The shop is filled to the brim with scrappy goodness.
 New CHA items, papers, embellies, mixed media items such as masks, mists, paints and more...
All time favourites such as Thickers, SMASH, Scrap Trends Mags, 
Martha Stewart punches & tools and WOW Chipboard.

Are coming to one of these retreats?
 I hope so.
If not and you would like to retreat with SFS have a look on the left side bar and book
into one of the other 14 retreats SFS will be attending in 2013.
