Scrapstars ...

Well it will be a week tomorrow since we had the Scrapstars event. This time last week, my stomach did a role over when i thought about certain things, and little did you know but I spent 5 hours last Thursday morning trying to trace Lida's wood which was lost in the post !!! Well I'm sure there always has to be a little crisis, but other than that, everything else went very smoothly, so I was very pleased with the event. It was nice to meet people face to face after communicating by email and facebook for the last few months, I had built up a lovely rapport with most people and now I was getting to meet new friends. The teachers were great and I loved all of the projects. I like to be taken out of my box and challenged to do something different at a retreat, after all, I can scrapbook at home. It's great to be taught by someone better than you, it's the only way to learn and to do something different, and we certainly had a mixture of those elements. I was grateful for all the lovely comments from the delegates after the event, the feedback on the questionnaires was fantastic, it's important to get people's opinions and as they were anonymous, any comments or constructive criticism is welcomed. Now on to choosing a date and tying the teachers down, giving them plenty of time to dream up some fantastic new projects. Once again thanks to everyone, for making Scrapstars a wonderful weekend. x

4 Sleeps to Scrapstars





Well as seen as some of the ladies have been posting sleeps every day for weeks, i thought i better get with the programme! Of course i have been busy busy, but as you know last weekend I squeezed in a little time to do my mini me page. While i had these gorgeous papers out, and knowing that the coral colours would look lovely with my photo's from Kirsty's photography day, I decided to make a start on a 12 x 12 layout as well. I got the large elements stuck down and enjoyed a little close cutting, but then i had to leave it on my desk. Over last week and this weekend, i have literally had ten minutes here and there to go back to it, so here is the result ....

Parcels arriving ...



Well they are coming in thick and fast this week (finally) I must say some of the suppliers have left me with the jitters with these new summer CHA releases only just coming in to their warehouses. If you want the new releases, you have to do it this way, maybe next year, i will pick a date where the products will be in in plenty of time, but then most of you will have already been out and bought them (Kathy)! I guess you saw my post on facebook about the delivery guy and me being in the shower! That was a very strange conversation, he's stood at the door on his phone ringing me and asking "are you dressed" and I say "no, I'll just put my dressing gown on" weird LOL. On another not, Robyn is Brown again! Her hair has been bright red for some time, as shocking as it is, it does suit her, but she's tamed it down a little and taken a couple of piercings out, could my daughter be growing up? Bless, she's a darling. :) P.S. she hates this picture ooops.
