Greetings scrappers!

Well spring has sprung and on the 1st I found myself spontaneously leaping into a wild demonic spring cleaning frenzy. It was, like, INSTINCTIVE! Actually, to be more accurate, I phoned Charmaine, my beloved trusty temp domestic and she did all the leaping with me looking on in an advisory capacity. Sometimes I love Africa.

As I mentioned in my last newsletter, I’m off to Kaapstad for (hopefully) some wild and memorable days. Five to be exact. This means that SBJ will be closed from Thursday 9th until Tuesday 14th. Otherwise, it’s business as usual so no need to stay away.

So, next week’s page is a Family layout designed by the talented Lee-Anne Fisher (see attached). It really is a lovely page with paper ribbons, flowers and chipboard bits. It has only:
2 jumbo landscape
1 (18 x 13 cm) landscape
Will work brilliantly with lovely pics of the whole family together, either in colour or B&W. The kits comes with all the chipboard pieces, blomme etc.

There won’t be a newsletter next Friday as I’ll be away so let me tell you now about the following week’s workshop: we will be playing Catch-Up as there are so many of you behind with pages. So come along and catch up on any of those missed workshops. I’ve got a spate of great layouts in the pipeline. You have to admit I’ve been bloody marvellous at churning out a workshop every week, on time, even if I say so myself.

There’s been a bit of a hiccup at the Racing Pigeon Club where Bee holds her card making workshops – seems those bleeding lice ridden flying rodents have come home to roost and they keep canceling Bee’s hall hire (the owners, not the pigeons). She’s asked if I’d mind hosting a card workshop here at SBJ – still at the same time of 17h30 on the second last Thursday of the month. As you know, space is limited here so can you give some indication of whether you’d like to join us on Thursday 23rd.? Actually, rather than and “indication” we’d need a firm booking.

Do you know that when I opened Scrapbook Junction in 2003 I charged R35.00 for a workshop and now, in 2010 I’m charging……. R35.00. The reason I made the decision to keep the fee way below the annual rate of inflation is so that you can spend more on the actual page. Now I’ve had to make a small adjustment here: you are absolutely welcome to bring your own paper to a workshop along with all your embellishments but I’m afraid the workshop fee will then be R55.00. This is still WELL below the general teacher fee in Durbs and the surrounds. I hope you understand.

That’s my bundle for this week. Look out for deluge of layouts of the magnificent Cape! Take care of yourselves, and scrap on……
Kindest of regards

Let me end with Larry’s proverbs…….. (chuckle chuckle)
