Twilight Addicts Weekend Retreat

Im back from my weekend away with the Twilight Addicts and what a weekend it was! I have not laughed so much in ages. All the ladies were lovely and it was great to meet them all in person. We also had a V.I.P in our presence for the weekend, Vern the Tortoise, who goes everywhere with Jess. We each had our photo taken with him and you can see those pics on Jess' Blog

The lovely Karen baked us some gorgeous cupcakes especially for the weekend - Twilight Cupcakes!  You can see us filling our faces on her blog.  She also brought along the most delicious coffee and walnut cake I have ever tasted!!

The Gangs All Here!!

I did manage to scrap a little in between the laughter and cake and finished these LO's:

Moving On Up

I love these photo's of Amy & Tony which I took on the first day they went to the High School, hence the title 'Moving On Up'.  I thought they would be a little nervous but no, they were so excited to be going and were really giggly all morning.  Don't you just love how Amy is leaning in towards Tony in the full length photo because Tony is smaller then her and a little bit conscious of the fact.


This photo was taken of me and Bruno on the beach back in December, its not particularly clear but I love it all the same. It was his first trip to the beach aged 4 months and such a memorable moment for me after what we had been through with him. It was a day that we didn't think would come. I gave this LO the title of 'Fighter' - short and sweet and to the point. He is my little fighter, hence the name Bruno (after the  boxer Frank Bruno)

I also managed to put all of my chocolate drop photo's into a mini album but have yet to do the journalling and I started a LO with a photo of my beautiful Miss Lola La'Finkle which needs to be finished so I'll share those when they are done.

Roll on the next retreat!!!
