Photo requirements for the Retreat

Hi ladies

I hope you have all managed to keep your feet firmly on the ground with this windy weather!! I just wanted to give you a bit of a heads up regarding photo requirements for the challenges and Suzanne’s class that we have organized for the weekend, over and above what you plan on bringing to do your own layouts.

1. One of the Challenges will be a Christmas theme – typically Christmas colours with the papers that you will be given, and the sizes of the photos required are:-

One 6 x 4” landscape orientation photo,

One 2 x 2” photo, and

One 3 x 2.5” landscape orientation photo (approximately) :-)

2. For Suzanne’s class, you will need the following sizes:-

Three 3 x 4” landscape orientation photos with a feminine/vintage theme (but who says you can’t put flowers on a masculine page!)

Here is a sneak peek of the layout you will be doing:-

So blue and cream tonings as well as some tealy green and a hint of lilac!! Sounds interesting doesn’t it – it is just gorgeous and true to Suzanne’s style.

More info regarding the Retreat to come so check back soon for regular updates.

If you have been thinking of coming along to the Retreat but haven't yet done so, there is still time to book so visit the website (link on the side bar) or email me at for further information.

Take care, Ann

Hello everyone

Well it is only 5 weeks away until the Retreat and everything is coming together nicely. There are a couple of things I need to tell you about in order for you to be organised for the weekend, as follows:-

Firstly, we have a Theme night on the Saturday night and this Retreat the theme is “Wild Wild West”. So have a think about a costume for the night – it can be as simple as a western style hat, or you can go all out as a Saloon gal if you want to – it all adds to the fun of the night! Prizes are available as usual including one for the Best Costume, so put your thinking caps on – let’s see what zany costumes we have on the night! Yeehah!!!

Secondly, we have a masseuse organized for the weekend to pamper us. Unfortunately the lovely Brigitte couldn’t join us this time were her magic fingers, but I have another lady Sonya coming along and she provides relaxation massages as follows:-

1hr Full Body Massage $55

1/2hr Full Body Massage $30

20min Neck & Shoulder Massage$25

Sounds divine doesn’t it?? Now if we get more than 10 participants, Sonya applies a Group Rate being a $5 discount. Please let me know if you would like to participate (believe me, you will just love it!) This is an additional cost and payment is made directly to Sonya on the day, so please make sure that you have the cash available. If you can let me know asap, it would be appreciated; that way we can organize the timetable to commence just after lunch on Saturday and work around meal breaks etc.

In the next couple of weeks time I will provide a sneak peek of Suzanne’s class on Saturday morning – it is just gorgeous!!

If you haven't booked your place for this Retreat, I can still take bookings - either visit the website or contact me via email to make your booking or enquiry. Day participants are very welcome to attend.

Take care, Ann :-)

2012 Retreat details now on website....

Hello everyone

Well the long awaited details of next year's Retreats are up on the website. I am still awaiting pricing from the caterers for the Cleveland Retreat, but should have those in about a week or so. Bookings can be made via the Paypal options on the website or you can contact me regarding other payment arrangements directly.

If you haven't already booked for the Noosa Retreat, it is only 6 weeks away, so book now to save your place. Suzanne Tonga has created a gorgeous layout for her class on Saturday morning; I know you are going to just love her style and techniques. I will post a sneak peek of the layout soon.

I hope to catch up with you soon at either Noosa or one of our Retreats next year.

Take care, Ann
