Calling all scrappers!

I saw this on Sarah Gladmans blog last night and thought it was a fabulous and tangible way that we could help out besides donating money which I'm sure we've all done. So I am now urging all scrapbookers out there to try and do at least one or two layouts to help the people of Victoria try and rebulid there lives and memories. For all Brisbane scrappers who would like to do layouts we are more than happy for you to drop your layouts into Flourish - 3/12 Kenrose St, Carina and we will post them all together. If you can complete and drop them off by the 15th March, that will give us a few days to get them posted to Sarah.

So start scrapping, it's such a small thing to be able to do for people who have lost everything and pass the word onto all those scrappers you know!!!

the devastation in Victoria

I can't begin to understand how the people affected by the total devastation of the fires in Victoria are feeling but my heart certainly goes out to them and their families.

I hope they find some way to rebuild there lives and carry on.

I have been watching the news with tears in my eyes and a very heavy heart and to think that someone would purposefully do this is insane.

my thoughts and prayers to you all

February 123 Challenge is:

use a shaped base to your Layout - not square or round....try cutting it yourself!

No use of hearts on the layout

I think nature would be a good theme with a shaped background and no hearts.

email your entries to:
please name your layout image with YOUR NAME to make it easier for us {PLEASE!}
Entries due: February 28th Midnight!
So there you have it!! Happy Scrapping everyone ;0)
