Eastbourne 2016 aka Week Forty Six

Week forty six was AMAZING, here are the highlights:

I swam over a mile on Sunday even though it was freezing cold outside!
I had a great session at Zumba :)
I saw this cheeky poser while walking in the park :)
I did my couch to 5k and then went for a 4 mile walk :)
I went on a very fun and exciting road trip :)
To this lovely hotel in Eastbourne for a scrapbooking retreat!
This was my lovely room for 3 whole nights!
And this was right across the road from the hotel!
The theme for the crop was Musicals and everyone had a brown paper package wrapped up with string as a place setting thanks to Barbara :)
I enjoyed my dirty pudding but could only manage half of this massive slab of cheesecake!
I got up early and went for runs along the seafront watching the sun come up :)
I enjoyed Prosecco and cupcakes, thanks to Wendy :)
On dress up night I became one of the Blues Brothers :)
Everyone had put in so much effort with their costumes and they all looked amazing :)
I love this photo, I sent it to Paul with the message "I've shaved" :)
The weather was very wet on Saturday and the sea put on an amazing show :)
Some of us still went out for a quick walk though :)
I may have had more than one dirty pudding while I was away!
This was the view from the crop room, I'm surprised I managed to get any scrapping done!
Here are a few of the layouts I managed, all of them were for the great challenges that were set throughout the weekend.  I won the black and white challenge and got a really great prize :)
And before I knew it the time had come to say goodbye and head home :(
Back to my handsome boy :)
I really have to thank everyone who put in so much effort to make my first retreat an amazing one, I can't wait for next year :)

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by

So much to love about this post! (haha..apart from the thought of swimming a mile, which makes me want to cry..) Your costume is fantastic and so are all your finished pages.

OOOH! I didn't realise it was your VERY FIRST retreat! I'm glad you enjoyed it....I've only been on one but is was great! And that lead to the little group gathering that we had in September. Which was even better. Nothing like getting surprise packages & little Wins as well. As for those puddings! All I can say is just as well you were close to the beach for some walks etc!!! GREAT pages, too:)
