Paperarts Tour Bus

This weekend I had the pleasure of joining 50 ladies on the Paperarts Tour Bus in Swindon and what a great weekend we all had. Sue, Rachel and Irene had put together a wonderful weekend with lots of lovely treats for the delegates from cupcakes to fab goodie bags and some amazing classes from Michelle Mogford, Lisa Saunders, Elaine Rolfe, Penny Kafai, Sandi Vincent and Helen Beaton.
I taught three classes and inflicted rather a lot of fussy cutting on the poor ladies, I think a lot of them will be nursing very sore hands today......sorry ladies!
My first class was using some gorgeous Crate Pretty Party papers...

I think this is one of my favourite photos of Rebecca, it was one that I took in June on her birthday.

For my second class I used some gorgeous photos of Amelie, she is such a little cutie.....

These Prima Sunkissed papers are so soft and beautiful just perfect for such a delicate little girl.

For my final class I had to use some Websters, I am still totally loving this Sunday Picnic range...

I have to say a huge thank you to Sue, Rachel and Irene for inviting me to the retreat and to all the ladies for making my weekend such fun, thank you :) xx

A Bit Of News and A Few Pages To Share

I have been really busy with work and life in general lately so don't have much scrapping to share but I can show you a couple of pages that I made a few months ago for a feature in the August edition of Scrap 365, the article focuses on adding edges.

I know that a lot of you know I was redeployed a few months ago and had to go full time, the job is fantastic but it has meant a huge drop in my free time and I was really struggling to fit in my scrapping and getting very stressed about it. I realised I had to make some changes and the only change I could make was to reduce my scrapping commitments. It was such a hard decision to make, one which I struggled over for weeks, but I have resigned from my position on My Creative Scrapbook design team and ATDML. I would like to thank Pam and her amazing team of girls for giving me such an amazing year on the team, Mel and Jill at ATDML for the opportunity to design for their shop and also you, my blog followers, for all the lovely comments you left on my pages. Thank you all so much.
I will still be scrapping but just not as much (you haven't got rid of me all together!) you will still find me in Scrap 365 and I will definitely be checking out all your blogs to see your gorgeous creations.
