CAMP MOJO ~ A SCRAPPY TOUR:
Hello there! Finally, finally I have a little time to put together
some of my thoughts and photos from Camp Mojo.
Sherry Mendoza holds these camps in both the USA and the one in
the Hunter Valley, Australia - the one I was blessed to be able to attend.
I'm glad we had our little 'group' ~ there were close to 60 scrappers there,
& I think if I'd gone alone I'd have gotten 'lost' in the mob:)
So Lisca M...hoping this answers some of your questions!!
The setting was pretty much Aussie bush. Most mornings I walked up to Platypus creek,
a 30-45 minute walk.
That way I had a bit of exercise before sitting at our tables [we each had a 6 foot one!]
We had a shared room - basic, but it was fine. I shared with Jo & a girl
we didn't know. But she was an 'all night scrapper' [dunno HOW they
do that! 11pm was the latest I could manage!!!]...so we didn't see much
The toilets and showers were in the corridor
outside our room. It worked fine like that,
I never had to wait to use any of the facilities.
The food was WONDERFUL! Tea/coffee available all the time
as well. Could NOT complain about that .....
The sticky date pudding was SOOOOO good I had 2 servings....but shhhhh!
Don't tell on me:)
I managed to do 22 LOs cos I spent a LOT of time creating 'kits'
for myself before I left. Some of the backgrounds I prepped, too.
It made it simple. It meant I could chat and scrap, cos I didn't have to think
too much about what I wanted to create. It was all there, ready to go!
It was a bit of work [LOT] before I got there. But well worth it!
This was as we were starting up. The empty table in the foreground was for
our scrappy mate Cheryl, who couldn't make it at the last minute, sadly.
Having the extra table was a bonus, though! This is our 'group'.
This is what sort of happened by the Saturday. The camp
started Wednesday, but we arrived on the Thursday - it finished on
Sunday after lunch. It was GREAT to have that time to settle in and scrap.
And the girls were AMAZING scrappers. I walked around a couple of
times, oggling their work!!!
One night was '70s' night.....pretty much when I grew up.....so that was a bit
of laid back, no drama fun.
I was also lucky to do the extra workshops. They cost extra,
but I figured this opportunity may not come again, so I did the Naomi Cox
one [using Distress ink reinkers as watercolours] & the one with
Jen Hall - watercolour techniques with your Project Life.
Both were really good!
Then Jo showed us how to use that new Fuse Tool.
And I showed Leanne and Jo how to do the Bokeh technique.
Nothing like sharing!!!
Finally, I'll leave you with some of the flowers I came across on my walks....
I hope you enjoyed this snap shot into Camp Mojo.
I really enjoyed it.......Oh! And there was a BIG, WELL STOCKED scrap
shop there as well!!!! Dangerous. But I was good. TRULY;)
Cheers, Lizzy ♥♥♥
