2020 Weekend Retreat - July 31 - August 2

Do you plan to be at the

2020 Weekend Scrapbooking Retreat?

I am taking deposits NOW...

I know this seems very early but I have to secure the venue with a $1000 deposit.

The first 20 deposits paid

receive a BONUS Scrapbook Kit

at the retreat.


Register NOW to guarantee your spot! 

Includes: 2 nights accommodation, meals Friday night, all day Saturday and breakfast and lunch Sunday, plus morning and afternoon teas and suppers. And, SURPRISES and GIFTS through the weekend!

After you have completed the payment we will be back in touch with you closer to the event regarding FINAL PAYMENT, Product Pre-ordering, your anticipated arrival time, and room sharing arrangements if you are part of a group.



The total cost is $290 for the weekend.

A $50 deposit is required to secure your place.

A further $50 will be required by February 28th.

A payment plan can also be arranged (contact me to arrange dates and amounts).

Full balance by June 15th 2020

There are no guarantees that places will still be available in June/July. It is strongly encouraged to formally reserve a place, or contact me directly if this is difficult for you for some reason.


Room options - extra levy for single room ($22 per night=$44 extra)

Rooms generally have 2-3 beds and are all en-suited. Every room will need to have each bed filled on the bottom (no empty bottom beds/bunks or there is now an additional room levy for any empty bottom beds. I will try and avoid this but this may mean that a few will have to share a room with someone you dont know as well. Booking a little group (2-3) will ensure this does not affect you.

Payment options:

a) Pay via credit card

       If you wish to pay via Credit Card select the PAYPAL option

      as you do NOT have to have a PAYPAL account - use the Guest option:

If you wish to register more than one person, complete this step as many times as needed using the participant name in the NAME field.

b) Transfer to my bank account and then email  me to notify me of doing so (email pottswl@yahoo.co.uk)

  • Lyrebird Park is in Yellingbo which is located a 1:20 Hr from Melbourne (1 hr 10 from Bentleigh East and 51 minutes from Narre Warren South). The last 5km is firm but dirt road.
  • No kitchen duties are required (just scrape your plates and place on trays)
  • AMAZING FOOD MENU - No - you do not have to eat it all!
  • Carpeted bright Hall.

What you need to bring: Your own bed linen & doona (or sleeping bag), pillow and towels. Toiletries. Comfortable clothes. Maybe a cushion for sitting on. Cropping supplies and photos! Bottle of wine to have with dinner?

Indulge yourself with a weekend of cropping. LYREBIRD PARK is the ideal venue for our weekend away. The bushland setting provides the perfect atmosphere for clear creative thinking and physical wellbeing. (Go for a bush walk if you can draw yourself away from your albums). Treat yourself and get your albums done!!

The Cabin sleeping accommodation is close to the cropping hall, (some rooms very close and others along a short path.) Each room has individual split systems. 

CHEN LU, our host, will ensure our meals are hearty homestyle cooking. You will be asked to  let me know of any special dietary requirements later. Ring me with any questions, and book it in your diary NOW! We will have lots of fun and good times – fresh air, new friends, creativity and LOTS of album pages done!!
