I am a little tired today. The reason being is that I couldn't sleep last night! I was too excited about this weekend :) In about three hours I'll be arriving at Theobald's Park for the 8th GoGo Getaway and I can't wait. I can't wait to see my fellow team mates, the delegates and to unveil the classes that they'll be taking over the course of the weekend. Over the weekend delegates will take seven classes. Here are some sneaks of all those classes;

I'm teaching three classes this time around, 'How Tweet! How can you resist', 'Life's a Beach (with a capital 'B')' and 'Through and Through'.

If it's anything like October's Getaway there will be a lot of laughter, a lot of creativity and not a lot of sleep. If you're joining us this weekend I shall see us there, and if you're not then why not book for 2013? It's one experience everyone should have :)

I am very excited today! One of my layouts is in Scrap365 and I wasn't expecting it so soon :) I was a lovely surpirse. My article is starts on page 50 and is the new 'Embellish it!' feature that Katy has introduced starting this month, along with 'Thrifty Scrapper'.

Check out the Scrap365 blog today for details on a freebie!

We're going on a bear hunt...

Okay, so I have a new favourite ScrapaGoGo kit and it's March's 'Happy Hive'. The minute I saw this month's stamp I thought of treasure hunting. And then I saw the bee and honeycomb shapes and that lead me to bear hunt. Connor and I had a lovely afternoon walking at the nature reserve opposite the house. He loved that I let him walk in all the mud and walk through the water. And at the end he had honey sandwiches with his teddy bear :)

I really love the alpha. It has really nice stitching on and I decided to draw stitching between each of the hexagons on the layout to tie it all together. I cut some circles from my pizza box and tied the twine around it in a bow, and hand cut some leaves too.

Essentially GoGo

Over half way through January already?? How does it happen? Well, I've been busy putting together projects for Scrap365. They won't appear for a while though and I'll share some sneek peeks nearer the time. Did you get the latest edition this week? I just love Lisa's little book for her sister.

And did you see the news from ScrapaGoGo? They've launched their new kit 'Essentially GoGo' from this month onwards and it's a stonkingly good deal at just £14.99 for all of this stash:
5 12x12 Quality Papers
3 12x12 Bazzill Cardstock
1 Alphabet
1 Bespoke Embellishment Pack
1 Exclusive Stamp
1 Sheet Exclusive Hybrids
1 Idea Booklet

PLUS access to the Clubhouse Forum where classes and ideas will be uploaded each and every month.... sounds great for £14.99 postage included doesn't it!!!

The first kits, 'Eclectic Me', left the warehouse yesterday and I'm really excited to find out what the members think of them and to see mine in real life too :)

Now, since I have the house to myself I better get scrapping!

Happy New Year!

Today marks the first posting day of the Chinese Whispers CJ 2012. We have three groups swapping this year and I decided to join in with all three :)

My first layout is a lift of a layout called 'Dream maker' but sadly I can't remember who's layout it is to give them the credit. If you recognise it, please do tell me!
My version of this layout is using the October Afternoon Boarding Pass range and is one of my Honeymoon photos. We stopped at Lake Garda, Italy, and Connor had a bowl of icecream that was made to look like spagetti bolognase. It was fantastic!

For team two I chose this layout to lift and again I'm not sure who did the original one, sorry! It's simple, but beautiful.The photo that I used for my lift is a candid moment of my son and little bridesmaid as we were getting ready for the wedding. They both look mischievious as they watch what is going on.
I will share my team 3 layout tomorrow as it's not quite finished (but don't tell anyone ;) ).

Have a very good first day of the year everyone x
