Well last week was a week of mixed emotions. Mostly it was just devastatingly cruel to me, but then on Friday I received a call from Addicted to Craft informing me I had made top 10 in the CBX Meaningful Album competition! The poor woman who had told me must have thought I was some sort of psycho nut case as I burst into a blubbering mess on the phone when she told me. For anyone who knows me they know how out of Character this is for me as I'm not a teary person at all. It all just came out as it was so lovely to hear some good news. In the whole scheme of life I guess making top 10 is quite miniscule, but for me, right now, it was just such a welcome relief compared to negative news. For the full list of top 10 finalists go here. Congratualtions to all the other finalists and special congrats to Donna Wild and Nic Howard as it is great to be in such great company.
The other week I had the pleasure of spending the day scrapping with Lydell and it was just so lovely to sit down, chat and create. I hadn't done anything for several weeks, so this was just the thing to force me to scrap again for a bit. I created this LO for the Scrapbook Station design team.
In other news, my best friend Kym has a blog. Although she isn't a scrapbooker (I will convert her, just give me time), I love to visit her blog just to see all the lovley picutes of her little boy and the incredible stories of her day to day life, living in PNG!! She talks about things that happen at her work (like being held up at gunpoint) like it is just a part of everyday life for them!!! My goodness we take so much of our lives for granted. And Kym, if you are reading, which I'm sure you will be...hehehe...I adore you hun, and can't wait till you move back to Australia!
Just a reminder that if you are interested in classes at Creative Edge, we hope to have all the class descriptions and timetable ready by the end of this month, so make sure you have your name on the list to receive this info by emailing us firstname.lastname@example.org
Till next time.....whenever that might be as I am getting very slack at this!
