Hello there

We have just 2 weeks until the Kilcoy Retreat and I would like to advise of the additional activities that will be held over the weekend.

Firstly, there will be additional classes held and these will be at a cost of $15 each which includes the kit materials.  If you would like to do the class, you can pay on the weekend, but I do need to know if you want to do it so that I can prepare the kits.  Please email me with the class layout title that you would like to do.  The details of these classes are as follows:-

Class 1 – LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE – Saturday 17th @ 2:30pm

This is a single page layout and will suit any theme.   I have adhered a B&W photo but you can see the colours if you wish to match to photos.

You will need:-
1 / 6x4 portrait photo (preferred)
Basic tool kit
Gel adhesive
Foam tape

  Class 2 – MOMENTS – Saturday 17th @ 8:00pm

This is a two page layout and will again suit any theme.  You will need to bring the following:-

Basic tool kit
Gel adhesive
Foam tape and dots
Pokey tool
Corner rounder (if you have one – available in shop if required)
Rubon applicator (available in shop if required)
Sewing needle with medium size eye (for threading bakers twine)

You will have enough materials to complete a double page layout and you will need 6 photos 6x4”, ALL PORTRAIT ORIENTATION preferably.  All of the photos need to be the same orientation for this layout to work, they can’t be a mix of both – all will be revealed at class !!

Class 3 – OFF THE PAGE PROJECT – DIVA SHOE – Sunday 18th @ 2:30pm

Something a little different for those of you who love everything crafty!!  This shoe can be used as a pretty decoration on your dressing table, or perhaps your craft room, but it can also be used as a phone holder on your desk, or if you are really clever, you can make an insert to hold dress rings. 

The kit will include the shoe and embellishments and I will provide paints to coat the shoe with, however, if you have a particular colour that you would like to paint the shoe with, then by all means bring it along. 
You will need your basic kit and strong gel adhesive (Helmar 450 is perfect which I have available in the shop).  A foam paint brush is also required which are available from the shop from 50 cents.

 Our Theme Night Activity
We will hold our usual fun theme night on Saturday night after dinner and this year’s theme is “PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN” – aye me hearties!!  Grab your eye patches, parrots, big hoop earrings and bandanas for a great dress-up fun night.  Fab prizes will be given for the best dressed and the winner/s of our group activity – it is just a great opportunity to take a bit of time out from our scrapping (not too long though) to have some fun and laughs.  So start preparing your costume for the night – it can be as simple as you like or you can go all out with your costume – it’s always a good night!!

Pampering by Nicole
Nicole will be coming along to the retreat again to provide some well-earned pampering by way of relaxation/remedial massage should you like to indulge.  Nicole has been busy updating her skills and can now provide deep tissue massage if you require it.

Her rates are:-
1 hour massage $45
½ hr massage $30

Very well worth every cent I can tell you!!  Please let me know if you would like to indulge as soon as possible, so that we can organise a suitable timetable.  Massages will commence Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday but will finish at 6pm each night – so it is first in best “pampered”.

Please note this is an additional cost and payment is made directly to Nicole at the time.

If you have any questions, please email me and I will be forwarding more info to you closer to the retreat.

Chat soon, Ann
