Kiwi Scraps





So Lissy and I arrived in Sydney at 6:20pm Thursday night and jumped in a taxi and headed straight for the hotel, I'm pretty sure if wasn't much after 7:30pm that we found ourselves sitting with about 16 of the scrap needs girls in the restaurant, lots of introductions and a very big amount of excitement for what the following days held for us. I know I was excited!

I did Ali and Donna classes and I loved every one of them, none are finished and now I have the dreded kiwi scraps lurgie which about 1/2 a dozen of us have sucumbed to, I am meant to be working today but I am lucky to be standing it is a rather nasty bug.

But back to kiwi scraps! I have come away with a new outlook on my scrapping and what it means to me and my family, it needs to touched and looked at, it came home to me when Donna threw her album, and did her 'showing the kids your album' skit, that was me all over!! we sit and look at the albums but i turn the pages, so now I am going to start doing a few more mini albums with all the 'other' photos I have that don't make it onto a layout.

And then all the people I met! Libby, Rach, Kell, Jen, Megan, Carol, Reggie, Roz, Sandra, Suze Doyle and so many more, it was such fun, but so strange as someone would sit next to you and you would chat away yet this was the first time you had talked in person
