Avalon Homestead Stamp Camp

The front which overlooks a gorgeous view of the hills around Toodyay.
As I promised here are a few pics of our stamp camp that Lynda Winfield organised. As I said before we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The setting was just perfect and we had the whole place to ourselves which was great if you wanted to stay in your pj's. We were spoilt rotten with three course meals and desserts to die for. Peter and Delveen run the Homestead and are very caring and helpful. If you would like to see more of Avalon Homestead and what they have to offer then please go to their website from here.

There were little displays in the hallway in between each room.
This was Pat's and my room. Handmade patchwork in all rooms.
There were fifteen swaps in all with a project which was run by Lynda. All the cards were lovely. Some of them I have altered slightly and no disrespect to the owners of these cards. I am sure the other ladies were just as pleased as I was with the variety of cards we had. I have put a name to a few but so sorry as I cannot remember who did what. I should have written them down.
I do have a couple more to put on but I have not finished them as yet. Also need to put the project on here and I will as soon as I finish that one too. Have a browse and thanks for popping by:)

November specials

We are almost half way into November and Stampin Up have some great specials this month.
It's only November, but Stampin' Claus is giving you an early Christmas present: a FREE Festive Paper-Piercing Pack when you buy the Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set and Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper Bundle.
You will love the Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set. There are so many different ways you can use it.  Have a look on page 3 of the holiday catalogue to see the stamp set and page 4 for the Candlelight Christmas DSP.

From 1 November through 16 December, host a minimum $650 Stampin' Up! party and get a FREE collection of ink pads*-a $79.95 value-in addition to our other fantastic benefits! What a great way to start your ink supplies. I'd be in that and you would get the very new stamp sets which are such a breeze to use. Contact me as soon as possible for this INK-credible offer as time is running out.

I have just arrived back from a stamp camp in Avalon that was run by the lovely Lynda Winfield. We had such a lovely time and it was my first time at the Avalon Homestead. This homestead is a must to see. Peter and Delveen are the lovely hosts and they really looked after us. I will post some photos hopefully later on today.
So its bye for now until then. I just thought I had better get these great specials up before they run out.
Thanks for popping by :)
