The Adelaide Trip

I have already posted a picture of my altered art piece designed by Jane Tregenza. But let me tell you about the rest of the trip.
Myself and Barbara arrived in Adelaide at about 9 in the morning on the Friday. Jane very Kindly collected us from the Airport and after a discussion we were dropped into town to have a look around. We browsed the Rundle Mall and posed with the pigs! Then caught the bus up Goodwood Road to Jane's store Seriously Scrapbooking. Once there we caught up with Jane who was busy finishing off the kits for Saturday's all day scrap. We stayed in store for the rest of the day, Jane gave us a tour of behind the scenes and where the production of the Imaginarium Designs takes place. We stayed through till the evenings scrap/crop held by Natalie all of the staff at the store were fantastically kind and kept us topped up with coffee (Thanks Cathy)! By the evening Barbara and I were so tired, hysteria had started to brew and we were giggly and probably a little strange......We could almost see through time!!!
After a bit of a sleep at Jane's house we were collected by Nat (we were still in our jim jams when she arrived!) and taken to the all day scrap. The classes that followed were a Beautiful Easel card by Nat, a stunning and quite girly layout by Steph, another Layout by Heather, and then the altered art piece by Jane. These awesome classes were taught to 85 of us!! The largest class/crop craft event I have ever been too. The food served inbetween the classes was worth going for alone, morning tea was more deserving of the tiltle high tea as it involed many tarts, slices, slices, brand snaps and petit fours. Lunch was equally delish Jane's Pumpkin soup and sausage rolls were the highlight with sandwiches, samosa's and quiches also. Everybody got a gift and a door prize, I was really pleased with mine a K&Co mini album kit.... which may have to be completed at some stage!
After that full on day, we got back to Jane's house to be introduced to Josh's new carpet pythons! The female is 7 ft long and a bit grumpy but very pretty. The vivarium was outside the room Barbara was staying in so many jokes were made about them eating her in the night! The rest of the evening was spent chatting till we realised we had to be at the airport for 8am, so bed and packing called.
Next day we were taken to the airport by Jane's hubby (thanks Malcom). Surprisingly after all of our purchases our baggage was ok. We scrapped the whole way home on the plane, even though space was a little tight and Barbara managed to empty the contents of her bag into the footspace of the row behind! Alpha stickers everywhere! I think the lady was quite bemused by it.
Hopefully we will be invited back for next year, I would love to make it a yearly jolly!
