Scrapbook Happiness

Can you believe the schools closed today? It seems like yesterday that the schools closed for April Holidays, and now it is the middle of the year, and holidays again!

It is really cold in the Eastern Cape, but we are so thankful for all the rain we have been blessed with.  Last year this time we were all praying for rain, and this year it is just pouring from Heaven!

This week saw the arrival of boxes full of goodness from all over!  We are still unpacking but we thought we would just let you know about some new arrivals to make you want to scrap, scrap and scrap or make some cards, mixed media projects and more!

We leave you with some amazing layouts done by one of our clients, Heather Wade.  Heather is a fine artist, and paints.  She decided to start Scrapbooking to catalogue and remember paintings she has done over the years.  She scraps photographs of her artwork.  What a wonderful way to keep her art alive so that her grandchildren and great-grandchildren will be able to see how talented their Granny was!  Why not start a Scrapbook filled with a speciality or trademark of your own?  Scrapbooking photos of your most spectacular dishes, quilts you have made, blankets you might have crocheted, flowers you have arranged or more!  Scrapbooking truly is for preserving all memories!
