Escape 2 Create part 2:

So back to telling you all about escape 2 create! I want to also acknowledge some other AMAZING ladies that I met whilst there.
I know it sounds strange to say that you've just met someone and then you become best buds but seriously this is how I felt at this retreat.
Amanda Hall and Meredith Treloar treated us like superstars! Honestly that's how I felt however I was quite emotional about it all as I honestly didn't feel worthy of all their efforts. They went ABOVE and BEYOND in what they provided us teachers with. It would be nice to think this is how all teachers get treated when they are asked to teach at such events would hope so.

The beautiful Meredith
The gorgeous Amanda

 And then there was this lady!!! She totally rocks and I miss her already! She was very kind and took all 4 of us on a tour of Port Lincoln while we waited for the retreat to start.
Nat May! AKA HappyDaks!!!
She even organised a welcoming committee!! ( Well not really!!! Hillarious though this random dude playing didgeridoo!)
 I could not miss mentioning seeing this amazingly talented, gracious, beautiful FRIEND of mine which is always so special..... Louise Nelson.
It was even more special when Lou asked me to scrap a layout for her!!! Wow nerve racking or what!!! But  what was even more special was I now have a LOU CREATION all of my own which I will treasure. WOW! Talk about really should see the detail in it! Thanks my friend I love it xxx

So after doing a layout for Lou, I found a little photo of someone else sitting at my desk waiting to be scrapped!! I created a layout for Nat too but I don't have any photos of it so I might have to ask her to send me one!! LOL!
But I also had the pleasure of being asked by the one and only Kim Jeffress to scrap a layout of her too. So I really wanted to depict Kim's personality and style but also create in my style. I knew she loved Heidi Swapp so I used Heidi Swapp colour shine sprays and a buzz word.....

I also got to finally met this talented lady too. ......Mardi Winen!!! She is so sweet and lovely!!! So glad to finally met her!!!

There was really SO many lovely people that I met and got to see again....tooo many to mention here! But thank you to every single one of you for making it such a special, memorable event!!

I  will share some more layouts next time, Eb xxx
