Scrapbook workshops

Today was our monthly scrapbook workshop. Mom and Judith joined me for the day. There were 6 consultants and 6 customers so it was a rather small gathering, but at least everyone had a chance to work on their albums. Mom and I completed 18 pages each! My biggest success was completing our trip to the Barrier Reef. Not our whole Port Douglas trip yet, still have our day at the Daintree to do and my sunrise beach photos, so another couple of days work. Mom is working on photos from her childhood that she has taken from slides that she scanned. It is a wonderful trip down memory lane for her.

My friend Judith is fantastically creative and is doing her husbands 'Variety Bash' photos. She creates the most beautiful pages, including cutting out letters from the PJ material that she made his pyjamas from. Little pockets to keep souvenirs and amazing pages that leave you sighing and wishing for her talent. The downside however, from my own point of view, is that she only completed 4 pages - too slow for me. Still we have great fun with her and she is happy to join Mom and I for a glass of wine at lunchtime! The afternoons are a lot noisier as a result.

We are known as the noisy/busy table, but we love our scrapbooking and I think it shows!

Hope you all have a great week.
