Wow, Where did August go?

Hello eveyone, I haven't abandoned this site just a little busy with the fun of Summer. I hope you are all enjoying your summer and have been taking lots of photos to scrapbook this Fall. As September begins it always gets in the mood to get organized and set up for the months ahead. It will soon be Halloween and Christmas and usually that means making cards, gifts, and costumes. Bring on the routine!!!

I have updated the side bar with all the upcoming events I know about at this time but if you know of something that is not there please send me an email and I'll be sure to add it. I truly believe this industry is driven by friends sharing ideas, products/tools and places to scrap.

Looking for Online Crops

I had a great weekend of scrapping and socializing. I had the Friday Nite Crop at Get Creative and then on Sunday I was at the Scrapaholics All Day Crop. What a great group of talented ladies at the Scrapaholics. I always love to see what creative projects they are working on. I'm happy to say that I managed to get my Father's Day gift finished and the card started. I hope your weekend was as creatively productive.

I'm looking for online crops to add to the blog, do you know of any??? I have been searching but can't find any, I LOVE ONLINE CROPS!

I have added a few more items on the right side bar, be sure to check out the growing list of places to Scrapbook and Papercraft around the Lower Mainland. If you know of any Crops, Fundraisers or Events that are not listed there please let me know so that they can be added.

What's Going On & Where Can I Scrapbook?

In a conversation the other day I realized that there are fewer and fewer places to Scrapbook at in the Lower Mainland and thought it is nice that we have Blogs as a way of sharing information.

Soon I will set up a list upcoming events on the sidebar so that we can all see them. If you know of a Scrapbooking Event and would like to have it listed please leave me a comment.
