I've been doing quite a lot of scrapping this week. I finished off my LOs I started last week at the crops, made a star book for Mum and Dad with the photos of me and my brother when we were little, and have been to another crop today! Today was at heene Road community centre, a 5 minute bike ride away. Luckily I don't have to take anything to this crop because Deb provides it all. We covered a shoe box, and it looks very pretty! Deb is taking beginners, and showing them the techniques and tools required for scrapping. Many of them have been going for several months and have not started albums yet. Oh how I wish I'd found Deb before I found Creative Memories! I really feel now that I wasted a lot of money, time and effort in CM. I don't like my 'Family' album that is CM style. Never mind eh! I feel that I have taught myself the techniques, mainly through UKScrappers and UKStampers and magazines. Although I have doen the techniques before, it is quite nice to be shown properly, and I'm sure there a re some tips I can pick up. There were about 10 of us today, so lots of different ideas in the melting pot too. The only problem now is that she want s to start them on an album now, a 'Book of Me', which I have already started in my own style. Hmmmm, I'd like something a bit more in between, where you can join a class and make something if you want, or do your own thing if you don't fancy that particular class.
Holiday to New York is nearly booked! M phoned today, and got a fairly decent quote, but we decided to go for a better hotel, so we are now waiting to hear if we can get into the Hilton in Times Square! It's on the 21st floor, so we'll get a good view! We have reserved flights for the Tuesday in half term, coming back overnight on the Sunday, which pleases DD cos it means a day off school! (on the Monday). We have to stay overnight on a Saturday to get the good prices.
