SCRAPPY SATURDAY WITH COMPANY

I am so fortunate to have two really awesome ladies, Mary and Kim as my dearest friends, and incredibly lucky that we have the opportunity to get together every second Saturday to scrap. 

This Saturday was fantastic as we had the lovely Cheryl (Cootamundra) and the gorgeous Jo (Mudgee) both travel to join us all for the day.


We all had so much fun, scrapping, chatting, playing with the great toys that Jo (bigshot) well looked at Jo's didn't really play, but will next time and Cheryl (cricut) did have a play with it (can see a wish list happening here)


And then of course there was lunch, chicken, tossed salad (with a yummy handmade dressing by Mary) and crusty french stick, but the thing that we were all waiting for was Kims Famous PAV and boy was the wait worth, it think she excelled hereself this this.


And if the look on Jo's face was anything to go by, yes, it tasted as good as it looked, I still have one piece left for afternoon tea today. Yummo!!!!

Then unfortunately it was, all too soon, time for them to leave. 
So with thanks to Jo's lovely daughter Elise, who took our group shots, we had another pic taken in my front yard and then I managed to snap a couple of pics of them leaving.




We are already making plans for our next get together and this time Jo and Cheryl will travel down on Friday afternoon and stay with weekend. Wow two days of scrapping, eating and plans to go to the Botanical Gardens here and not to forget shopping with reminds me MASSIVE thanks to Nicole of Craft Queen http://www.craftqueen.com.au for the opportunity to shop at her place, it is like an aladins cave of scrappy treasure.
Now if there is any of our scrappy friends out there, who are close enough to us here in Orange, and think oooh that sounds like fun, I would love to join them, well leave some loving and I will let you know once we have a date locked in (very hard trying to sync five women).
Anyhoo hugs and love to all and thanks for stopping by xo
