Times flies!

Ok so who is pinching all the hours in a day!! Card classes have overtaken me for a while and scrapbooking has had to take a step back but hopefully I will have some time soon to get back on track.

I do have a layout to share....finally using some BG papers that have been deglected for far too long. Also managed to use some chipboard scalloped circles that were a gift from Kerry...yonks ago. I painted it with white acrylic paint and edged with a brown ink. Everything else on the page is Basic Grey Gypsy and the pink circle was left for the age to be stuck in...this is for somebody elses album so I am leaving journaling etc to them.

Also coming up an all day crop

If you fancy a day scrapbooking and catching up with all those half done projects that you have been meaning to finish or you have a project you are eager to start but not had the time, why not spend the day with us on Sunday 28th June. £15.00 for the day, includes all drinks/cakes etc and a mini book kit, which you can do on the day or take home to complete. Instructions and photos will be inside the kit. Its at the WRVS hall Benfleet....instructions on how to get there can be emailed to you. I will be there from 9.30 so you are free to come anytime after that....hoping to go onto about 5/6, just waiting to her that is ok with the lady that opens up for me. I will confirm with you if you are coming. Email me jackiedasilva@talktalk.net if you are interested
