What a fabulous time we had at the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Creative Escape!
Jo and I were soooo lucky to have attended this retreat in Coffs Harbour.
So many talented ladies all in one room, so many laughs, so many new crafty friends, an awesome location, sensational food and some scrapbooking!!!
My heart is so full of happiness! ♡♡♡
When we arrived in Coffs, after a fun road trip, we were greeted with lots of amazing goodies!
☀ The first being the AMAZING venue ~ Annuka Beach Resort - Check out this view!!!
☀ Then the scrappy goodness...Oh Wow!! So very spoilt by Zoe!
She even created an exclusive Cocoa Vanilla collection just for those of us at the retreat!!!
☀ We met some fantastic and very talented peeps!!!
(Only some of them are pictured here)
Jo and I with the gorgeous Zoe Pearn from Cocoa Vanilla Studio - what a beautiful lady!
Jo and I with the lovely Adele ~ Inkie Quill - another fabulously gorgeous lady!
Here are the beautiful ladies we sat with...what fun we had with these ladies...it was like we had been friends for years!
Thanks so much Manda, Anne, Jo, Jo, Jenni, Denene and Jo - am missing the continuous laughs we had each day!
☀ We were also treated with some extremely yummy food...
☀ We saw several weddings take place and had a dress up night ~ some incredibly hilarious costumes with some very brave ladies in them!!
☀ Included as part of the retreat was a class with the lovely Lauren Hender - Member of the Cocoa Vanilla Design Team.
Here is the layout that I created...a scraplift of Lauren's gorgeous layout!
We used the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla 'Wild at Heart' collection!
I haven't used this collection before...you all know how challenged I am by pretty papers but I think I am in love ♡♡♡
Had so much fun creating this!
Can't wait to pull it out again!
I love how my layout turned out!
I am so blessed to have been lucky enough to attend the CCV Creative Escape Retreat! Thank you to Jo for our awesome road trip, to Zoe for the fantastic retreat she held and to alll of the lovely ladies that made it such an awesome time!
