On Retreat and Holidays

I haven't been a slack blogger, but am away on holidays.

I am posting from the internet kiosk at Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort Shark Bay WA.

Arrived yesterday after 11 hours on a bus!

Get to see the dolphins this morning.

Spent 3 awesome days at Burekup at the Chookscraps Retreat. Scrapped 2 acrylic mini albums and lots of LO's plus did the 2 workshops. Will upload some pics when I get home next week.

Bye for now........
