Mia, Ella and I have been up to Tarnagulla (where my brother and sisterinlaw live) an old goldmining town, we saw kangaroos very close, walked, played in the park and relaxed! Then on the way home we decided to pay a surprise visit to the lovely Tracey Pickersgill who has recently taken over the largest scrapbooking store in Ballarat and revamped it with a new name THE IMAGINATION FACTORY -Main Road Ballarat just opposite Soverign Hill - the shop looks fabulous and certainly worth a visit!
Tracey has the ever bubbly very talented Stacey (who has had her work published) working with her running beginners workshops, and the very talented published Scrapbooker Fiona Leehane also running workshops - it is a lovely place full of creative energy, lots of laughter and support.. It was lovely to catch up for a couple of hours - Mia and Ella had a ball doing craft with Beatrice (Tracey's 9year old daughter)
I am going to attempt to upload my pics of my layouts this weekend as I am still learning about the blogging system!!
Thanks for letting me ramble! If you are visiting, I would love you to leave a comment!!
