I met and had many conversations with some really lovely people. I have realised that many people who attend these shows love making cards but would also like to try scrapbooking but find the prospect a bit daunting. Several people have expressed an interest but don't feel they are able to produce layouts that are 'good enough'. Rubbish! When I first started some of my layouts were pretty basic but that is the beauty of scrapbooking, your layouts grow with you.
Just like card making, you start off with simple designs, then when you are feeling a bit more confident, you start experimenting with more complex designs. Scrapbooking is just the same. I say if you want to do scrapbooking, give it a go. Start by making one layout using just 1 photo. If you are looking for inspiration, try a website called 'Page Maps'. It is brilliant at giving you loads of ideas and they produce a monthly printable sheet that gives you ideas for layouts. Even if you have been scrapping for ages it can just kick start your creative juices! Give it a try.
Finally, I would like to thank everyone who came along yesterday and an extra special thank you for those that took the time to stop and say 'hello'.

If you live in the area please pop along on Sunday between 10.00 a.m. - 3.00 p.m. as there will be plenty of retailers there with loads of goodies for sale (at very reasonable prices I am sure).
Details of the show can be found under 'Diary Dates' on this blog. I hope to take some photo's of the 'shop' when it is set up to show you all.

Went looking yesterday at new computers but didn't buy anything as it was Friday 13th (I am superstitious!) and didn't want to chance it.

I have been busy with the Scrapaholix Kit for August (nearly there). I have 2 potential layouts lying on my dining table (eating in the kitchen again tonight!). Just making sure before I stick it all down then I will post what I have done.

Today, they left a lovely 'thank you' message in the guestbook on my shop website. It is little things like this that make working for yourself worthwhile (so I can forget about my tax return waiting in the corner of my 'office' for another day!).
The reason I am relating this story is this: if you are looking for any particular product, please email me your request. I cannot guarantee that I can get it for you but I will try my best.
I have been really busy this weekend but I do have some layouts to upload - will do this sometime next week - promise!
