Scrapmatts Farwell and More.....

Well the time has come for me to step down and move on. The last 2 yrs have been exciting, inspirational and challenging. Thankyou Sof and Andrew for "giving me a go"! One of the highlights during my time on Scrapmatts, was actually meeting you both along with other DT members as well. I so love to see smiling faces and enjoy each and everyone's company. To me this is FAMILY!!!! - Not just scrapping all the time...

So going out in MY style(you might all miss the bright and funky style!!!LOL)

Why do we rush rush rush this time of the year. And it did not help that i was not ready this year! I am normally well organised but everything has crept up all of a sudden, and then everything hits at the same time! Today i have a luncheon with my grandmother, kids have a birthday party and a Christening to go to with their father! And the rel'os were thinking of getting together for a xmas night. Find out if that will happen later.

So i better get in quick to share a couple of challenge layouts...
