Tiff - meet downstairs at the luggage carousel.
Just keep an eye out tiff - I will be there by 830 at the latest.


Nat. I dont know the airport very well. Only been there once since the new building opened.

where is a good spot for us chicks to gather before your arrival. Is there a cafe or something you can suggest. Is it upstairs or downstairs. How close is that inside/outside Cafe downstairs to that luggage carousel.

As we are arriving all within 30mins or so of each other we should work out we where could meet each other??

Tomorrow is the day...

I fly out!..

It's 11.35pm and I've just finished packing my scrap stuff........well "packing" is not a very good description of what I did!

More like pick up the bag I had at the Sydney 3AS retreat that I never unpacked, shove a few more thing in it and zip it up......I really have no idea what I've got!

One day i will be organized, it's a dream I have!

See you soon!

I should be at the airport about 830am so meet you all downstairs by the luggage carousel.

Sound good?

Sunday, July 26, 2009


I probably did count wrong Tiff!!!.

I'm sure we can work out who's who, just thought I remember someone suggesting this and wasn't sure if we were doing them or not!

My gosh I've not even thought about packing yet,....

Are we going to have any little challenges? or just free scrapping??

Now to get rid of this flu and cold....
Morning girls

Tools I have ----

Cuttlebug and plates
lots of punches like threading water, effervecence, lots of corner punches
lots of stamps
lots of ink
lots of ribbon
all the usual stuff

also, Trev and I are gonna do a big grocery shop on Thurs. Any spec requests? We thought this might be easier than doing it together on Fri. Do you mind if we do that and just divvie up the $$?
Lazy tea Fri night dips and stuff
Bacon & Eggs sat morn...... sushi for lunch sat ..... roast pork on the webber with veg sat night..
toast sunday morn????

lots of choc, chip, shit food in between


After the LSS on fri we will stop at fupermarket just so you girls can buy your drinks but we will do the rest.
what do ya think?

hey miss Nat...

believe it or not I am almost all packed... (scrapping wise), just got to print out some photos! Things are so so so busy for me mon-wed next week so I have been trying to get the house spotless this weekend and pack as much as I can.

but as I am packing and throwing in my trusty tools like my stapler, dymo labeller, treading water punch, I am thinking... what has Nat got we can borrow and what can we contribute so we don't all need to load our suitcases up with all the same stuff??? besides I plan on having a good splurge on new stuff, I need room in my bags to get it home, lol.

BTW, I am packing a whole heap of stuff (paper, alphas, chipboard, rub-ons, embellishments etc) that I have never used and no longer want... maybe we could all do that and anyone can help themselves to it??? Just a suggestion... anything we don't want to take home well, maybe Nat knows of somewhere it can be donated to???

just thinking... :)

5 sleeps till I meet up with Ange and Cat in Melbourne!! Party party party!

So excited about scrapping with you all! Woooohoooo

7 or 6???

hey there. I count only 6 sleeps including tonight (Saturday) have I mis counted. I hope not. and no I havent done a name tag either. as we are an intimate number i figure I should be able to work out whos who.


7 more sleeps to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

how exciting is this getting!!

I've been trying to find time to come here all last week.....time keeps getting away from me!

Have we all made our name badges??...umm not me..yet!

Thursday, July 16, 2009

Sonia and Ang - Your accommodation has arrived!

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Ok girls.......

I need you to throw in your pillows please and Tiff, do you mind sleeping in a swag in my craft room?

How's this sound.....

Friday night home for tea with cocktails - lazy nibbly tea, anti pasto, dips, cheese, stuff like that and two options for Saturday night - if we all pitch in, Trev is super happy to do a pork roast on the webber (we will do veggies) or we can go out for Thai? If we stay home, cheaper, can keep scrapping, drinking, keep slippers on - we are not fussed either way.

20 sleeps to go..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Friday, July 3, 2009

I will be there to pick you all up shortly after 8am.

How's this for a plan.....

drive thru McDonalds breakfast on the way to the scrap shop!!!

The BIG scrap shop - owner is a fuckwit - is not open til 10am but my LSS will be open at 9 so if we go straight there for coffee that could work. My boss has a class at 10 but there will be plently of room for us to do caffine and chat!
sounds good to me. By the time I walk up from the Rex Terminal (building next door) after landing at 7.45am I should be able to meet you all at the Cafe on the ground floor at 8am. Its an inside/outside one. We could have breakfast there (expensive) or when Nat picks us up have breakfast at IKEA. Right next door to airport and very cheap. Hot and cold breaky choices. I will be starving as we dont have meals on my plane. by then it will be time to hit the shops, or whatever.

also thinking out loud.

Thursday, July 2, 2009

Well if Cat is the latest to arrive at 8am, maybe we could go to a cafe or something at the airport and wait for Nat to arrive and by then it may not be too early to go to the LSS. Just thinking out loud.... What did you have in mind Nat??

Tuesday, June 30, 2009


yippee. Yay Cat. Our weekend is coming up quick.

I have amended my flight time leaving Adelaide on Sunday. I was originally leaving the airport at 6.30pm.
As everyone is heading home mid arvo to catch connecting flights or to get home at a decent time on Sunday night, I changed my time back to 4.15pm.

We all could go to the airport together and sit at the bar until our flights come up. (just a thought)

And it would give Nat time to regain her 'normal' home again before school, family, work, etc etc on Monday.

31 sleeps to go.

OMG Can you believe we only have a month to go!!?!! YAY! :D

My flight arrives in Adelaide at 8am on the friday and my flight home is at 3:05pm on the pretty much the same as Ange and Sonia.

I like your idea too Ange of a stop for supplies, but would it maybe be a tad early?? lol I guess once we all got organised with baggage etc it probably wouldn't be..

Is there anyone else whos still a possibility of coming?? Mel, Clair, Amanda, Meredith??

Ohhhhh I so can't wait!!

Monday, June 22, 2009

What time do you want me to pick you up from the airport?

Sunday, June 21, 2009

Getting Excited!!

Sorry i haven't been in here. No excuse really lol.

Just confirming that Sonia & I will arrive in Adelaide at 7.20am Friday and will depart Sunday at 3.0o pm. So is it just Cat & Tiff that we are meeting at the airport on Friday at this stage?? Should we do a trip to the SS after getting picked up?? That way we can get stuck into it as soon as we get back to Nat's. Oh, not forgetting a trip to get other necessary supplies ie: alcohol, snacks lol.

Friday, May 29, 2009

flights booked.

now I am locked in.
flying in on Rex on Friday @ 7.45am. I don't come into the main terminal but can make my way there to meet the girls at the Cafe (the inside/outside one). easier for u Nat with Pickup.
fly out Sunday 6.30pm. Nat if you feel this is too late I have a small bit of flexibility at the moment. let me know. the earlier flight is approx 4.30p.

wahu buckaroo. I am so excited. yippeee.... chucking a handstand over here.

Hi guys,

I'm going to pull out. Haven't been around much due to other things taking over like my new job that I absolutely adore plus study and the kids etc. Scrapping just isn't really a part of my at the moment.

Hope you all have a great time.


Wednesday, April 29, 2009

Well I still haven't booked flights LOL Got sidetracked at the scrap shop ;)

But I'm planning on getting the first flight to Adelaide on the fri around 8am and the last flight out on the sunday which is around 3pm

Monday, April 27, 2009

Fly in whenever the cheap flights are girls.

I only live 15mins from the airport so it's not a problem.

I am swapping cars with my SIL for that weekend cause she has a Tarago!!!

Start booking those flights girlies!!!

Sunday, April 26, 2009


just wondering if u would like the girls who are flying in to come in about the same time of day and leave about the same time to save multiple trips to the airport.

depending on room in vehicles I will book my flight soon to come in about the same time of day as Ange, Donna and Sonia.

Let me know if that doesnt work out so I can arrange for a different time to fly. Limited in choices of what time to fly tho.

still plenty of time but cant bloody wait.

Friday, April 24, 2009

dear DH


have planted a seed.

I have asked DH if he would like a weekend in Adelaide to visit his family, his Nana esp, on the same weekend as our get together. He hasnt objected yet, so I take that as a good sign. So I may have a chauffeur. te he.

We'll see how this seed grows.


Thursday, February 12, 2009

I just booked my flight!!! I'm really nervous Nervous

I did ask this in the forum.......
Does any one mind if my sister joins us for a day??

Monday, February 2, 2009

roll on our weekend.


am so excited. cant wait to meet you all irl. You have all made me so welcome on eb.

am also a fair bit nervous about driving Adelaide. If I am the only one from over here, I was wondering if there is a remote chance of anyone being near Gepps Cross that would need a lift to Nats.
I freak out with claustrophobia and driving town makes me into a sweating gibberish mess.

If there is no one I will just have to conquer my fear and drive slowly.
or fly.... now there's a thought.
hmmmm I wonder if they can attached a trailer to the plane just for me ???!!! *insert roll eyes*
So if any of you chickies have any questions or need to know anything pop it in here!

I'm assuming that you are all able to post here but if not let me know.

Airfares are super cheap at the moment so will keep an eye out for specials too.
I am with you Nat, so excited about this and we still have months to wait! Wow Deb, Donna and Tiff I am super excited about meeting you girls for the first time! Meeting everyone at scraptac last year was phenomenal, this is going to be the same! Will keep my eyes peeled for cheap flights Ange and Cat!!
