Viking Race Day

Today we attended the EAG Christmas party where all the companies took part in a Viking Race :) It was a fun day, great weather, great band and awesome entertainment!!

The Boat Pre-Race

The colour of the event

Rival Boats

The maiden being prepared

Pre Race pep-talk

The Parade

Racing to fetch the maiden

Returning with the maiden onboard

Weary Vikings

My very own Fierce Viking

Unfortunately John Holland came last apparently due to unfair wind drag on their sails lol, I say it was over engineering of the boat that caused the problem :) too big and too heavy!! Next time they might let a woman design the boat!!

Round 3 Kit Competition at Bonsscraps

And here is the layout using my kit for Bon's kit competition. I was inspired by a layout from Irene Tan's blog Irene is having a giveaway on her blog to celebrate over half a million hits...why not click on the link and check it out!!

Over at Bon's there is a massive competition happening. We are in to week 3 and for this round 1 of the challenges is to create our own kits and then scrap a page using our kit!!
This is my kit

Quite exciting for me as I usually only ever use kits put together for me and complete layouts from challenges or classes. I hope to have the layout finished today :)

Scrapboxx Retreat

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend a day at the October Scrapboxx Retreat!!
I created 8 layouts in a day...unheard of for me!!

The first class was the wonderful Sheree McGee and in this class we created 7 layouts!!! Yep that's right 7!!
I must admit I did not actually complete them all but the basics are there and they just need titles and journalling!! Here is one I actually completed today :) I have added 'my' new idea on this page :)

The next class was by the gorgeous Evana Willis, way different to my style but a style I really admire!! I love this page!!

I had a lot of fun and would have loved to have been there for the whole weekend so I have booked myself in for the March retreat next year in Augusta!!
