Last weekend I spotted a post on the inspireME site from the Aussie Scrap Source blog, they had set a challenge to create a page using Websters Pages and you had to include WP trims and alpha stickers. The prize was in my mind amazing, the chance to be a guest designer for Websters for a month! So I set to creating my page, I only had a couple of days to get it done as the closing date was Tuesday. Sadly I didn't win, there were some amazing entries and the winners page was just stunning. I loved creating the page though and am still totally loving WP!
When I went to Ally Pally in April I picked up some Life's Portrait WP's, I have used them on this page with a small amount of Ladies and Gents.

I have had another go at using Liquid pearls and thankfully didn't smudge it too much this time! I simply added a line of dots along the edge of the scallop and highlighted some areas of the photo frame.

I also have some exciting news to share! Last week I received an email from Caroline, she is organising the Scrapstars retreat in September this year and has asked me to teach! I was so shocked, I have taught a couple of time before, despite the nerves, once I have got going I really really enjoy it, but never really thought about teaching at other venues. There have been two other teachers announced so far and I can't believe I am going to be teaching along side them. I am one excited scrapper!

So glad you are teaching at Scrapstars Rachael, my place is already booked, look forward to seeing what gorgeous project(s) you teach. No need to be nervous, you were great last time and I am sure you will be fabulous at Scrapstars.

Fantastic news Rachel! You must be delighted. I am sure that you and your students will really enjoy your class. Your layout is lovely but I can't believe you didn't win. You have such talent at using the WP patterned papers which I have to say I struggle with, but your are always lovely. Thanks for sharing :)

They're lucky to have such an inspirational teacher Rachael, hope you have a good time.
I'll just echo what everyone else has said about not winning..... Websters must have missed this entry is all I can say !!!
