C4AC Workshop - What a Day !!!! and some sad news.

It was great to see the place packed and everyone having so much fun. We managed to raise over $2000 for the lady (Linda and her family) we were supporting. Thank you soooooooo much to you all for making the day the success it was. Along with the highs there were a few lows. As mentioned at the crop Mr Kennedy wasn't doing too good so we really appreciated Carolyn stil coming in and working, so we could have the outlet shop open during the day/night especially knowing her dad was so unwell. Just to let you all know too, that Stan Kennedy passed away this morning. You may not realise but he came along to every workshop and totally supported what we were doing and if he wasn't in hospital he would have been down at some stage to show his support again . He is someone who we are all going to sadly miss but the world is so much richer for him being here. For those of you who pray and even those of you who don't please keep us all; David (my hubby), Carolyn, Linda, Mal(his brother and sisters) and Margaret (mum and wife)in your thoughts and of course us other halves and the kids.
So now that you know the reason why these photos are a bit delayed on getting uploaded here they are finally for you to enjoy and have a giggle at once more..
Well as I mentioned it was a fullhouse.
Scrap Your Bra - one of the competitions we ran - this one belonged to Diane Rowe - wish i had a better photo but she literally scrapped the photos onto the bra and all around the back band .
We had mega fantastic, wonderful, great prizes during the day - Cricut, Zutter, Crop o Diles
and tooooooo many others to mention. Thank you so much Raqual (Chandon Craft), Marisa (Create on Garden ) for helping out with the donations.
Cindy Bishop (who by the way came all the way down from Queensland just for the day) - won the cricut amongst other things - sure hope she brought a HUGE suitcase.... thank you sooo much for making that huge effort but it was so lovely to meet you. See you again in June when I come up.
Julie and Leanne

And this is the bra that had the highest total votes - Cindy Bishop (QLD)
Again thanks Cindy for coming down. 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize getters got gift vouchers from Bras and Things. Something little to replace those ones that they scrapped up.

Amongst all those women we had a loyal supporter - Simon Davies who says he is not a scrapper but you can see for yourself and be the judge of that - he even has his own blog so you can go here and check out what he has been up to. Thanks for coming Simon.

And as I took just way too many photos to post them all, here are a few collages that gives you a closer look at what we got up to on the day. These are only some of the entries for the BTP, Card and Layout challenges. Congratulations to the winners but a huge thank you to you all for the effort you all put in to make these gorgeous creations. It is you guys that have made the day such a success by being involved and taking part but most of all having fun. I loved all your work and I have taken away soooo many ideas. If you have taken some photos that you think we could share with everyone please feel free to email them to me at and i can post them up for you.
The "hooters" parade - this was a great laugh. OMG some of these bras would have taken a week, longer than scrapping an album. Others had a bit of a personal challenge to completing them as the breast cancer issue was close to them.
We have raised over $2000 so far with more to come. Thank you again Raqual for all your help, donations, encouragement. Without you it wouldn't have been half the success it was. Also thanks to everyone who pitched in and helped set and clean up too. It sure makes the job that much easier when you aren't the only one doing it. You are little angels in disguise.

Thank you again to you all for your efforts in creating these bras- these are simply gorgeous and so much work has gone into making these. Hmmmm now to think what we can do for the next one in July.
Dont forget we have a mini crop this Friday night - 8th May (6.30 - 10.30)
- $5 at the outlet again. If interested leave your name with one of the girls at the Outlet
All money will be going again toward supporting this local lady and her family in Geelong.
