This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Scrap Africa Challenge no.30

Morning Everyone

I am back from my scrappy weekend and it was a blast! It was really nice to meet so many new people and also have a chance to share some of my scrappy styles with the class.

We had a class of 60 ladies...and believe me, it was quite a task to get round to everybody and also answer all the questions.  Luckily I had Wilna Cremer to help me and so we were able to "hopefully" get round to everybody.

I think we were also really lucky, in that, we had a lovely group of ladies and they were actually quite easy. No difficult ladies at all! ;-). So thanks to Cathy van was a super weekend!

I was absolutely shattered when I got home last night...but all for the good! ;-)

Scrap Africa has a new challenge up and hopefully you will join us.  It's a Scrap Your Stash challenge....and I KNOW that you ladies all have a come and play along!

I created this card, using one of the first collections I ever bought....Basic Grey Sweet Threads.

I did a lot if distressing and watercolouring and used rub-ons and chippies. Hopefully a new fresh, vintage look to some old goodies.

I really hope you will join us....

Thank so much for stopping by!
Have a super day!
