Some Scrapbooking

This is one of the pages from May’s double page layout that we did at our Scrapbooking Madness evening.  I’ve just got around to putting a photo on it, and I’m so delighted, as the colours just tie in perfectly!  We are having a Scrapbooking night THE LAST FRIDAY OF EVERY MONTH.  There is a class from 6pm-8pm, then an open crop from 8pm-midnight.  You can come for the class and the crop for just $20, and make two double page layouts, or just the crop for $10, where you bring all of your own cardstock, and can use our ideas and inks, stamps & punches.  
Gorgeous photo, huh??  Yep – this photo was taken by Jacqui Jones – who I’m sure will very soon be a famous photographer, and I have the honour of receiving some of her photos in a gorgeous calendar.  Thanks Jacqui – this was just a stunning gift, and one that I can continue to use in my scrapbooking!


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         This is a photo from Pukekura Park – our gorgeous Park right here in New Plymouth, and one that has heaps of photo opportunities.  In fact, as teenagers we used to go up there most Sunday afternoons during Summer and hire the boats that go out on the lake – and have water fights!  We used to get some of our passengers to get off on the little island in the middle of the lake… then leave them there.   Yep – that was sooo much fun, until someone fell in, and we got banned from going back..     hmmm.   Mum – hope you’re not reading this, as I don’t remember that I ever told you about this!   Oops!
Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday – don’t forget to pop over to the WE Stamp blog  to get your free download of our template and enter the blog candy draw.  There is also a new challenge up for you to take part in.  A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
