Exciting news

I started a new job on Tuesday at Scrapbook Studio as Assistant Manager. It's going to be so great working with Lisa and the shop is looking fantastic. There's a lot of new product in the shop and new staff including tutors, with some great classes coming up. Check out the website and sign up on the forum.

There's a new theme on the Scrap the Teenz blog about scrapping your teens sport and/or hobby. I scrapped about James' surfing. He has been surfing competitively since he was 13. These photos are from the Maori Nationals last November. Loving scrapping the 6x12 size.

I jacked Ruth Cahill

Here's my layout for the Scrapjack on the Kiwi Jack-Me-Up blog. Great layout Ruth and team. I loved putting this together. Thanks for the inspiration.

Just like to share some recent layouts. This layout is for the Anniversary dare for No 8 Wired. It is about Everyday Moments based on Nic Howard's new book That's Life.
The journalling reads:
'Every week day we spend an hour in the car together driving. It's become a good time to catch up & just talk about things. I've been thankful for this time together that has made us quite close'.
Loved using the 6 x 12 size too.
Go check out the other great layouts. We have some great prizes up for grabs from Fiskars.
This layout was for our recent Scrap the Teenz blog theme. The Crazy things we do for our teens.
And this layout was for the previous Scrap the Teenz theme - Achievements.

It gets worse every time!! my blogging that is!

So we had Scrapcamp and wow how cool was it!! Wasn't it?? So neat to catch up even for a moment with friends and meet new ones. Thanks soooo much to all our sponsors, what would we do without them. Check Yolandes blog for all the sponsor links.
And wasn't that Chris Millar just the darlingest, loveliest person. I feel so happy to have met her. Her class was divine. And thank you so much Sara Jane for your amazing class. I just can't wait to complete and use it.
Well I've been sick ever since and finally took myself to the doctor yesterday to get some antibiotics. I think it's all psychological you know; once you know you got drugs you start to feel better straight away. I usually like to get over things without them but this one wasn't going away on it's own. The other problem was I had to work everyday ever since cause I had some days off before camp, therefore have not got round to doing this.
But I'm here at last and I also want to thank all the lovely, lovely ladies who came to camp and made it such an awesome weekend. It really makes it all worthwhile.
Thanks Michelle TW too, she is always there to lend a helping hand, and to Trina for helping me cut out hearts - yay for Fiskars demonstrators.
And last but not least to Yolande for all her hard hard work she puts in behind the scenes with all the paperwork, etc.
Will add pics later - promise!!
