Stamp Camp with Andrea

Hi there,
On the 20th and 21st August I attended a Stamp Camp with Western Australian Demonstrator Andrea Buckland down at Baldivis.  Thanks to Andrea for inviting me and to the other ladies who attended, it was a very enjoyable weekend. It was lovely to meet new faces and see how creative you all are.  I couldn't believe how much gear these girls brought to the camp, literally suitcases full.  Andrea made gifts that she placed on our pillows made with the Scallop Circle die and contained a Picnic Bar.
We received another gift from Andrea on our desks a cute tissue box holder.
Nicki Turner also made a gift with the Envelope Sizzix die. Thank's Andrea and Nicki.

There was also a Door Prize Swap - The one I selected was made by Andrea.  Andrea made it with the Scallop Circle Bigz Die and Big Shot.  It is gorgeous and I love how Andrea decorated the inside of the box too.
Everyone made a Shoebox Swap, and here are some photo's of the swaps we made. Thank's to Sue Johnston, Amy Bowater, Dale James, Christine Schwartz,
Rowena Roberts, Tracey Bingham, Andrea Buckland, Helen McWhirter
Nicki Turner, Barbara Kingston, Avril Lee, Mel Bowaters
Susan Joyce, Silvana Manzi, Leeanne Barry
Jo Chester, Jenny Reed
Pat Carr, Richelle Fletcher
On Saturday Pat Carr who belongs to my group the Stamperoo's came to the camp and bought along an original design for me that she made for convention, the Sydney Opera House card.  Thank's Pat you are so creative, love it.  I can't show you Pat's Shoebox Swap because she intends to use it for Stampin' Up's Perth Regionals, it is very cute and I will feature the card after 11th September.  I made a Notepad and Pen set as my swap with the new Catalogue Stamp set Friends Never Fade and the Greenhouse Gala Designer Paper for the Pen.
