Get ready for My Little Shoebox!

The penultimate class for the crop this month will go on sale tomorrow and its a beautiful kit using products from the My Little Shoebox 'Japanese Camelia' line. I've asked Mandy to teach this class as I know she'll more than do it justice, Mandy seems to be in her element when she's surrounded by beautiful papers and plenty of ribbon and as a result her classes are stunning! I fell head over heels with this company when we were in Vegas, they are pretty new on the scene but the owner has a great eye and was so sweet when we met her.

The class kit contains cardstock, 3 double sided patterned papers, 3 packs of die-cut embellishments, a whole pack of ribbons and a transparency sheet - all of which are just gorgeous!!! The kit will go on sale tomorrow morning at 9am so be sure to reserve your place because this is a 'must have' kit!

Did you watch 'The Mummy Diaries' last night? If ever there was a reason to spur anyone to scrapbook, this program made it loud and clear. The diaries and memory boxes produced by the terminally ill mothers were a beautiful legacy for their children. While I hope to live a full, long and healthy life, I am comforted by the knowledge that there will always be something of me left behind on my scrapbook pages for those I love. I am now determined to journal more on my pages so that they are meaningful and not just pretty decorated pages with photos stuck on. I've had more journaling on my layouts of late but the program really struck a chord with me. If you didn't get to see it, I can highly recommend it - tune into Channel 4 on Thursdays at 9pm.

I also watched the Mummy Diaries, cried the whole way through but felt more inspired to leave memories for my children so like you am determined to journal a lot more. These women were such an inspiration to live life to the full so when I start ranting & raving I shall have to stop and count to 10 first because I know I am lucky enough to be healthy and hopefully see my kids grow up. Looking forward to the crop x
