I’ve been catching up on a bit of scrapbooking recently. I love the size of Stampin’ Up!’s 6×6 albums, it’s so quick and easy to scrap a page that size.
The page above uses the 5th Avenue Floral stampset and gorgeous Bella Rose Double sided papers.
I like to maximise the space on my pages so I got out my Stampin’ Up! Cutter Kit and cut around the flowers so I could slip the photo in behind. The rotary cutter in the kit is much easier and safer to use than a craft knife and you get 4 portable tools in one for just $33.95!

Now to day 2 of our Noosa Trip……….
Here’s Jayne, Georgina, myself, Linda and Marelle starting the day with breakfast at a restaraunt in the main street……..we found out later that it is owned and run by the same people who own Ricky’s. This would become our favourite place to eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert…….
After a sumptuous brekkie we borded the ferry to Ricky’s Restaraunt for our cooking class…….
The day was perfect for a boat trip so some of us sat up top to enjoy the view……..
Arriving at Ricky’s………..
Each of us received a set of cutlery labelled with a Stampin’ Up! ribbon colour which indicated our cooking teams……..
This person did not wish to be identified but he did look rather cute in that chef’s hat ;)…..
Here we all are in our Master Chef attire, the BAJA BREEZE team…….waiting to “cook up a storm”!
As Linda said “It is possible to cook and look cute at the same time……… ”
So we got our hands dirty …….or our latex gloves at least…..
And turned the ingredients before us into a gourmet meal……….
to die for!!
We ate, savouring every morsel, all the while enjoying the fabulous surroundings and atmosphere at Ricky’s.
Now, if you’re starting to think that we spent the majority of our time on the Incentive Trip eating amazing food…….. you’d be right!
After Linda and I had spent the afternoon child-free shopping (when do you get to do that!!??) on the main strip in Noosa ……..it was time for a cocktail – I think happy hour started at 3pm in this bar 😉 – some oysters that tasted like they had been lifted straight from the sea and salt and pepper squid…..
We returned to our rooms that afternoon to find yet another gift waiting for us, wrapped up in a tea towl, inside another, larger, red hatbox. I’m not allowed to show you what was inside…..but I can say that you are going to LOVE some of the new stampsets and accessories Stampin’ Up! are introducing before the end of the year!
The night was ours to do what we wanted, so group of us decided to meet at the local Club for a meal and some Karaoke!
This “unofficial” activity is set to become an Incentive Trip tradition …….and, lets face it , deep down, we ALL want to sing like ABBA…………. right?
Back with more from Incentive Trip – Day 3 tomorrow!!
