Our first ever Crafternoon (scrap day)

Last weekend 30 ladies joined Dizzy Izzy for 12 hours of scrapping madness at the Port Hacking Community Centre. This was our first ever scrap day - or as Tracey likes to say Crafternoon, and scrap we did. We had scrappers of all levels from beginner to expert, and the quality and quantity of layouts was really impressive. Tracey and I really enjoyed getting around to seeing what people were up to, its always inspiring to see the perspectives of other scrappers and learn new hints and tricks. We also love helping with scrappers block - so if you ever get stuck please come and ask, we are always happy to try and help.
Our lovely scrappers

A big congratulations must go to Susan and Denise who won our two scrapping challenges, incorporation of a button/ribbon and interpretation of a sketch designed by the terrific Tracey. Also congratulations must go to my Mum (Diane) who not only made great tasting sandwiches for lunch but, with a little persuasion completed her first two layouts!!!!!! Go Mumsy :-) I am also going to congratulate myself for doing my first ever spot of teaching - a little make n take featuring my tags. Thankyou ladies for your patience, I hope I taught you something new and easy to do with all those scraps. Great for the kids these school holidays.
Susan & Denise - Our challenge winners!

Both Tracey and I were really impressed with the venue - with fantastic lighting and plenty of room to spreadout your scrap supplies (none of that nasty chairbumping) and a massive kitchen for lunch and dinner prep, we hope to be holding more of these scrap days in the months to come at the Port Hacking Community Centre. We are also currently on the look-out for a Wollongong venue, so if you know of anything suitable please let us know.
The Dizzy Izzy girls full of nerves at the beginning of the day!

The meal plan was a popular option so we are looking to include this at our future events - Di says that soup is on the menu for lunch at our winter Scrap days - stay tuned for more details.

Tracey and I could not put on such events with out little team of helpers so a big shout out must go to the joyful Jodie, delightful Diane, magical Matt and rocking Rob - you guys are awesome. Both Jodie and Di have given us lists of ideas and suggestions to make our days even better and brighter in the future.
What an inspiring view!
Wishing you all lots of scrappy mojo this Easter weekend
