Hi there everyone! I hope you were able to catch up on all the fun we had at the HLS Craft Retreat with my previous post. If not, you can check it out HERE.
I wanted to share a few photos with you of my trip away and also the cards that I made at the retreat.
I've got some amazing memories here and it was an experience that I was so lucky to share with so many people.
Here we are ready to fly out of Sydney. This was the long haul flight to Dubai (14.5 hours!). The next flight to London was about 8 hours.

|This is Simone and my first trip overseas together. We have been best friends for 36 years so it was about time!|
First stop - London! We did plenty of sightseeing. The morning we arrived, we didn't waste any time. We got on the Hop On-Hop Off Bus tour to see the city. Pity I dropped my camera on the very first day.... From then on, I relied on my phone. Lucky they take a fairly decent photo!
London in Brief:
| City Sightseeing - bus and cruise | Greenwich Markets | Thriller Live! at the Lyric Theatre | Kinky Boots at the Adelphi Theatre | Motown at the Shaftesbury Theatre | Madam Tussauds | Covent Garden | London Eye | Harrods |
Here are some of my favourite shots from London
|Selfie on the London Eye|
|Sandie and I cruising the river Thames|
|Tower of London|
|walking down Oxford street|
|Shakespeares Head Tavern - Carnaby Street|
Madame Tussauds was one of my favourite outings. I'm a bit of a Star Wars and Sherlock Holmes fan and there were fantastic exhibitions on at the time :) Callum and I had a blast!

Well that's enough of that! I've probably bored you silly lol.
I would now like to share the cards that I made at the HLS Craft Retreat.
All these cards were made using Brushos. There was actually very little stamping and a lot of die cutting. The best thing about the retreat was everyone bought a bit of their stash from home and we got to share. What an amazing time we had - thanks to all you gals for making it such an unforgettable weekend.
Thanks for popping in today. I really appreciate it :)
I did a bit of a calculation on how long it took me to get home from Spain. Door to door it was over 36 hours. Wow.... no wonder that jet lag is a killer!
