creating

& it feels good!
with all the sorting & packing going on here at the moment the Scrap Pink day in Cromwell yesterday was a great 'get away'. I was part of an online Scrap Pink crop on Friday night at SBO also & Vicky Challenged us to do a layout with 4 photos & a 'thankful' theme. Niks dh also came to the 'party' so to speak & looked after Ethan with his own 2 boys for the day as well - huge thanks :-)

I've also had fun making some notebooks - hand bound ones & love the Scenic route & Basic Grey papers for the covers! Leave me a comment & I'll pull out two names next Saturday evening & send some to you (remember to check back to see if your name was pulled out so you can flick me your snail mail addy).
I did a 'pink layout' too but for some reason it wouldn't upload from picasa (just a little red cross came up) but if you want to see it check here!

Big thanks to Andrea for organising the friday night online crop & to those who came - for your company too! Big thanks to Kiwi Scraps for your organising for the Saturday Crop & to the fantabulous Nik for 'doing' the local scrap day in Cromwell!

Congrats to the new Up2Scrap Elite team for 2008! & to those highly commended & to the finalists - WTG

& Senz is less than 2 weeks away!!!!! I have loved playing with the product I have for my canvas class & hope those coming will enjoy it & love what they have when they are finished! I've used the class concept for a few other canvas projects too so it's very versatile :-). Apart from the worry about my first 'workshop' I also have to work out what to wear LOL!

OK better stop procrastinating, get some buttons stuck down, create some picture hanging strings & do some more 'purging' of this over full house (I love getting rid of stuff I've decided!)

Lara, thanks for stopping by my blog, and for leading me to yours! It is lovely. Your scrapbooking is truly art. My daughter is having fun with photos, so I am going to steer her here as well.
