ANOTHER ARTY TRIP

After our last long weekend away to Lakes Entrance,
Bevlea & I decided that this should happen more often.
So, this time we headed off on Friday to beautiful Queenscliff.
This is one of my favourite places to visit.
Lots to see & do, loads of beautiful buildings, wonderful
shopping & food.
We booked into a little cottage, was clean & comfy,
but reminiscent of great Grandmas house!!
We cranked up the heating & started to Art!!
First we made a Fork In The Road journal. Have to say
that the instructions were a tad difficult, but, after lots
 of procrastination, we sorted it out.
Mine will have more stuff added soon, lots of 'bits & pieces' I kept from my Europe trip.
It has a fold out book on the left side & the box with all the Countries opens up!!

Saturday morning we went to the Queensliff Day Spa for a one hour massage.
I was so scared doing this as I had a rotten experience with a massage when I went to Thailand.
This was totally different, so soothing, so relaxing(I'm sure Bevlea nodded off a few times!)
We took the ferry to Sorrento, spent time looking at the shops etc, &  had a lovely lunch.
We then worked on our next project which was a Configuration box by Tim Holtz.
I took the 'dark' road, and just love the way it turned out.


The days went too fast, and on Monday we drove home via Barwon Heads for brunch,. We stopped  along the way for Bevlea to take photos(what else!) and now we can't wait for our September trip to Ocean Grove!!

Hi Lucy, this technique looks really interesting and seems you've been having a lot of fun. May I ask if you are interested in doing link exchanges? I have a high traffic blog directory and would be great to have your blog there.
