A lot has happened over the last month. My mom emigrated to the UK which was quite emotional. To help with all the stress in my life, I decided to scrap. Scrapbook 'n Things had a special for the month of February where you paid R300 and you could attend as many classes as you wanted. I definitely made the most of this offer. I completed at least 2 double pages a week. My aim was to complete one of the albums that my mom had asked me to do of my step-father and just chill. I was doing someone else's pages, so I didn't have to think either it was absolute bliss.
Then we had the Leap around the World blog hop which was also fun, although time consuming. I am still trying to figure out if it was the blog hop that made me use my 10gig allowance of broadband :). If you don't tell my family, I certainly wont.
Lara from Scrapbook 'n Things also has a monthly challenge where you buy a kit at less 20% and you must use everything in the kit and come up with a unique design. The customers that come into the shop then get to vote and the winner gets a American Cardstock pack + a gift voucher to shop in the store. Not bad actually.
This is one of the pages I designed using the Scrap Collections range of papers and a Let's Scrap sketch.
I also arranged a scrapbook fundraiser which was held on 18 February 2012 and thanks to Michelle van Wyk for helping me with the double page layout called Seek, I designed another single page of all the precious children at Tsholofelo Baby Sanctuary where I volunteer called Love Blooms Here.
My mission for the month of March is to finish all my unfinished pages and their are loads of them. I battle putting on titles and doing journalling. As I finish, I will take photo's and load them for all to see.
