and arnt these the cutest...they are also from 7 Gypsies....and they would look perfect in my custom designed scrapbook room (just kidding...I would love one of those 'purely devoted' scrapbook rooms though - who wouldnt?) You could hang them from a shelf and add your works of art.....

Today I managed to get 1 layout completed for Kidston Craft...and i also started a 2nd....I have also pretty much finished my layout for the Scrapbook Creations Competition....I know i keep saying im almost finished...but i really mean it this time...promise

I was actually working on my LO for the Scrapbook Creations Competition - Im really pleased with how it has turned out so far...but i havnt finished it yet....hopefully tonight it will be almost complete (fingers crossed)
How cool would it be to win one of those HORN scrapbooking workstations?....I would need a new house to fit it in.....LOL...but wouldnt it be nice *g*
Cindy managed to get a layout done...and it looked gorgeous *g*...Im sure you will all be able to see it soon in the Scrappers Warehouse Gallery .

Tonight im planning on doing up some more SW class samples, some AED layouts using the new vellums and also reading my 2 US CK magazines......
