Busy weekend

Yes the weekend was very busy.
I did this lo on Friday night for the SNC BOM challenge for this month. To scrap a relationship with a relative. I chose my grandparents, as I was very close to them.
Grandad died almost 20 years ago... it really doesn't seem that long ago... and Grandma died in 1995.
I still miss them terribly and I wish they had the chance to see the boys. Yes, I think they would have got on together very well. lol.
I used the Boxx of Scraps pack from Scrapboxx for the layout. This pack just screamed heritage layout and I really love the way it came out. I used a Becky Fleck sketch for the layout.

On Sunday I went to the Scrap n Chat meeting at the Cannery. It was a great turnout. We had 9 girls there for an afternoon of scrapbooking and chatting. We're doing pretty well for only the second get together. We've decided we don't really want any more than 15 as they won't fit comfortably in the Cannery art room. but it was a lot of fun.
I will upload my project tomorrow. Still haven't taken any photos.

And today I got some lovely orders from Maria at Scrapboxx (I just fell in love with her packs this month) and also from Chelle at Scrap n Crazy... Chelle has the MME paper pack on special. The new embossed chipboard is just divine! And I got some absolutely gorgeous prizes in the packs too... thanks girls!
And I'm hoping my order from Shelley at S4L shows up tomorrow with the online classes. They're going to be a lot of fun... Christmas in July ones. Pippa is holding one, an advent calendar, and it looks awesome.

So I think I'm going to playing with all my new goodies....
Have yourselves a wonderful day tomorrow won't you all!

It really is so important to scrap/record the grandparents, and not just our current generations, and we tend not to realise this until it is too late and they are not around to tell us their stories. Hopefully you have motivated more than just me to get the old photos out and get those memories down!
