I'm Back after a very long absence...

I have to send to you all a very sincere apology for the lack in postings of late. I went away to QLD for the Mt Tamborine Retreat of which we all had a WONDERFUL time. I met some wonderful New ladies and we all ate, scrapped and stamped more than we could have imagined possible. A fantastic weekend was had by all and I am working on setting a date for next year.

After a minor mechanical issue on Monday I was all set to come home on Tuesday but a phone call in the middle of the night confirmed my Father-in-law had passed away after a long battle with cancer and Alzheimer's. I was a long way from home and had a very distraught husband and children. I have spent the week since arriving home Tuesday co-ordinating funeral arrangements and caring for my family. Over coming weeks you may notice fewer posts and less planned classes and Events.
I do apologise for this and look forward to getting back into it all with you very soon. We have a brand New catalogue being Released this Wednesday and I can not wait to share with you all the excitement and fantastic New products.

Vintage Vogue-Scrapbooking Page

I can tell you, that Vintage Vogue Stamp Set is staying with us for at least another year. It will be returning to the Brand New 2010-2011 Stampin Up catalogue. I have been having lots of fun using Vintage Vogue on all my projects and even though Flowers are not pre-dominantly used on Boys pages they often give it a subtle fresh look.
