Our major raffle prize winners were, Christine, Big Shot donated by Boncraft Supplies, Denise, Sapphire Pendant, donated by Adrian Wilson and Maci, a big bag of goodies.
We would like to thank all those that supported us on the night. A huge 'Thank You' also goes to all the wholesales who donated prizes.
I would like to say a personal 'Thank You' to my daughters Alicia and Melissa for all their help leading up to the night and on the night and also to Karen who also assisted in making this a very successful event.

We are just about settled in the new shop and it is looking good.
We are now getting ready for our next big event which is "A Girl's Night In' to aid Breast Cancer Awareness. This is a 12 hour crop that is being held on 15th October from midday to midnight. The cost is $25.00 and afternoon tea and dinner is included. We have received support from many of our Wholesalers and there will be lucky door prizes and a great raffle. We have been donated a Big Shot, a set of Copic Markers, a Yellow Sapphire pendant and many more items.
There will be demonstrations of Copic Markers by Melissa Barnicoat, and Opals Embossing Enamel by Kaye. Alicia Barry is coming from Brisbane for the event and will also be demonstrating.
Everyone is welcome to come for the full 12 hours of any time inbetween.
Denis will be cooking a sausage sizzle for lunch for those that arrive early and a gold coin donation towards Breast Cancer Awareness would be appreciated.

Welcome to another Challenge kit.Thanks to those who entered a layout for last month, we enjoyed seeing them. This month's kit would be perfect for Mother's Day layouts, with soft pastel blues and floral patterns. Not that you are restrictyed to that theme at all, just an idea.

For embellishments you will get a large silk flower, a piece of pretty gold wired ribbon, a handful of chipboard pieces, including buckles, 2 hat pins, 2 metal charms, diamonte brads, gemstones, and a whole sheet of Carolee's Creations mini alphabet stickers.
Here's a layout I created using the kit.
All this and as always the kit is only $10 (+$6.95 if you require postage).
Challenge entries are due at the end of the month for your chance to win a free kit, but please note that it is perfectly Ok to buy the kit and not enter the competition.
