My other cool scrapping news

I have had a pretty awesome week this week.  First I won Prima's BAP (see last post) then found out my mom and dad are returning to live in NZ and then Brendan winning a principal award and the big award from Kiwianis International - The Les Allison Award at the camp school he has been attending for the last month with Christopher.  So very proud of him.  we also seem to be making progress with Kaitlyn too.

Then I have this news on the scrapping front so cool excited and nervous about it too.  I am going to be on the first elite team for the new scrapping magazine NZ PAPERCHASE which comes out next March. It is the relaunch of the Up2 Scrap Magazine.

Prima BAP News

So excited having an awesome scrapping week as well as some other cool news.  Today I found out I have won Novembers Prima Build a Page.  This makes it the second time this year as well as being featured on their blog a few times.

Here is December's Build a page layout I did this week - a new favourite:

Have used the Fairy Flora range of Papers and lots of flowers and a gorgeous branch.  I have also used a Donna Downey stamp in the background. Its the first time I have used one of the felt gates they are so sturdy with a plastic backing so it doesn't crumple when you take the backing off which a lot of self adhesive felt products seem to do.
