Cards to Share

Today I found cards I made awhile ago now could even be a good 12 months ago. I really got into making these and I was truly inspired by the lovely Brigitte Grant and her stunning cards.

Now I am no cardie that's for sure but I really did enjoy making these cards, I don't remember the paper range, think some of it was Kaiser Sakura range but the others I don't remember.

Anyway, I thought I should share these as I am very happy with how they turned out. I did have more but have used them :)

This first one would have to be my favourite

Thanks for stopping by, hope you are having a terrific week.

Sad News to share

As many of you might already know, I have sold Scrap with V and the shop has moved on to it's new premises this morning.

It was a hard decision but one I had to make. With all the changes in family life, working a new job, 3 teenage daughters and a husband who works 72 hours a week and a business on top, something had to give and unfortunately it was my baby - Scrap with V.

Chocked full of flu this past week and feeling so very crappy, I managed to get the shop packed up and loaded into the pod ready to head off this morning. I ended up having to call on Annette to give me a hand in getting it finished as I was just so darn sick, it took all my effort. Thank you so much Annette for all your help.
and thank goodness this will be the last time ever I need to pack it up again LOL!!

I am really going to miss the store. Has been such great fun. All the lovely ladies I've met over the years, retreats we've all had fun at. I have really enjoyed this but sadly it was time for me to say goodbye.

I am really looking forward to being able to scrap for me again, keeping the frienships that have flourished and spend more time with my family too.

You will really love the new owner of Scrap with V, Julianne (Jules the Bling Princess) is really lovely and I know she will keep my baby going well.

Please head over to Scrap with V blog and meet Julianne, see what she has in store and the changes happening.

I would really like to thank everyone, all the Design Team girls over all the years for all their support, frienship and encouragement. It has been such a pleasure working with everyone and to all my customers too who I have built great friendships with even though we've never met face to face. Thank you everyone!!

I truly hope that you will all continue to support Scrap with V and Julianne in the future.

So proud of my baby

Chloe has only been learning the guitar for a very short time, only since changing schools in March. Chloe wasn't expected to participate in the concert as she had only been learning such a short time but Chloe was determined to be part of the concert and did so well. I am so proud of my baby.

The concert tonight was a little concert put on for the parents of what the kids have been learning so far. Just certain cords but also singing along with it, songs written by Mr Gagen to make it more fun while learning these cords.

Mr Gagen is such a wonderful teacher, making learning music so much fun!! I wish Mr Gagen was around when I was young and learning to play the keyboard maybe I would have stuck with it.

The kids had such a great time tonight and so did the parents. The place was packed out with parents, grand parents, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters.

I couldn't get a decent photo of the entire group playing but Mr Gagen was kind enough to have his photo taken with Chloe after the concert.

Mr Gagen and Chloe with their guitars after the concert tonight.

Thank you Mr Gagen and well done Chloe
