Organised a 12 hour crop in Queenstown for NSD. Was great - a whole day for scrapping. My mum joined me for the morning. We had a constant supply of filter coffee & snacks (so many snacks I didn't need to go buy lunch or dinner!). I met some new people & others popped in just to see what we were doing - these LO's are some that I did. I also spent two hours showing some young women & some experienced scrappers how to make my handbags (shown in a previous post). I had done up some page kits which helped me to actually get something done. Mum completed her first Layout since a CM class a couple of years ago.
I had a go at this doodling thing (in the 'stuffed' Lo & used a little in the 'six feet'). Quite enjoyed it! I'm really pleased with how 'oh boy' turned out - much better than the first time I scrapped this photo (in a Lo called 'Wakatipu Boots') & the journaling is way better - more meaningful!
I'm doing Nic H's online class in a week and a half & am looking forward to it as it will be my first non CM class that i've 'attended' Hope I don't have any probs downloading software or getting to the site with time differences etc. Mum is also doing the class but on the Monday rather than Wednesday night.

Our Scrap Camp is moving along nicely with a great bunch of people coming - after Saturday I can't wait! A whole weekend (long because it's Queens Birthday Weekend) to scrap with some challenges and workshops thrown in. Have been collecting bits for the goodie bags & challenge prizes as has Nik so it's shaping up really well! I have a bag full of half page kits organised (just need to do my sketches & some need journaling) so I can get heaps done. Have a few more photos to get printed - as Digital max has half price enlargements leading up to Mothers Day!

I'm having trouble resisting all the stunning, delicious and beautiful papers and embellishments becoming avaliable at stores at the moment. I think scrapbooking needs to come with health (up all night scrapping) and finance (don't ask) warnings!

My first lot of DT work for the Scrapbook Outlet went up last Friday Night - such a releif to be able to post it - now onto next months work! Posted by Picasa

Your layouts at NSD are fab. I really love Oh Boy & the feet one. Isn't it great when our mothers scrap. Mine is just beginning too; pity she lives in NP. Totally agree with all the temptations to buy!! It's not fair.
