I'm here, I'm still around, just haven't got any pictures to show you at the moment but I can tell you what I've been up to. lol
Believe it or not....Scrapbooking. Every three months, the Creative Memories consultants in Mackay district get together and organise a mammoth scrapbooking weekend with prizes etc etc. Quite a few of my friends go to these days so I booked into the Sat session 10am to 4pm but by lunch time I hadn't done any scrapping, too busy being social eg laughing, talking, having coffee, you know the sort of thing.
So since there was some room left I booked into the night session too.
I had a ball, didn't get home until 10.30pm Saturday night but it was sooooo worth it. Scrapbooking has never been my 'thing' but I turned up one day at the Ilbilbie classes and really enjoyed myself. So I started a Calendar Album, which is now nearly completed to the end of April. At this stage I have kept with the Creative Memories products but once I get some sort of grasp on the subject I thought I could branch out and use my Stampin' Up and other brands stash.
While I was in Canberra I took over 500 photos so I thought they would make a lovely album once completed.
I did finish some yesteryear cards on Friday for the Tourist Centre. My cards in there are getting low.
The next couple of days are write offs as far as my cardmaking goes though, maybe Wednesday.
Thanks for visiting.

YAY welcome to the scrapbook club too LOL!

Oh dear... it's official... you ARE addicted LOL!

At least you can keep all your good stash to use on the album and then you never have to part with it!!!

Well that's my excuse anyway! :)
