Look - We're Famous!

What a lovely surprise when I opened up my copy of The Scrapbook Magazine - an article about our crop on page 6! But I have to say that they did get it a little wrong and ATDML are not at every crop.

Speed Scrapping With Shimelle

Saturday was our National Scrapbooking Day crop/class with the urber talented Shimelle. What a fabulous day we all had. In total there were 16 of us and we each made 16 pages for an 8.5 x 11 album in a day! Shimelle was her ever patient self and by the end we had all achieved the basic pages ready to follow the instructions to complete them later. I cannot believe we did so many pages with so little stress - a testimony to a brilliant teacher.

It was a fantastic day spent with some of our regular ladies and some ladies who had booked in for the day to take the class. Ladies had traveled from far and wide - one lady had taken 5 trains to reach us, that's what I call dedication!

Also congratulations to Denise who won the Sarah's Cards kit for her sketch challenge lo, last month. This was the most creative use of the sketch and was chosen by SJ who said she was really impressed by the hand cutting, our thanks to Sarah's Cards for very generously donating a May Kit.

Next crop is on June 5th when we have a crochet class to show us how to make lovely handmade embellishments for our pages. Contact us at if you would like to book a place.
