Scrapping Kits, going online and a 'girl's night in or two'....

Great news! My LSS Create & See will being going online shortly. A great deal of work has been devoted to getting this site set-up professionally and I am very excited for all involved. In conjunction with the shop I have put together my first scrapping kits, which they are now selling. They are the 'Crafty CD Cases' which were featured in Scrapbooking Memories Vol 9 No.4. I have pre-cut all the materials and included easy to follow instructions.

I have made ten of these for myself, some I have given as gifts and the rest house all my pics.......nicely themed and sorted. My next kit is based around small Christmas gifts and decorations.

I have also been busy making some mini-albums for the 'Girl's Night In' we are having next weekend to raise money for Breast Cancer research. We had our first one last year and it was huge so we are looking forward to another successful night, with loads of laughs and some good old fashioned 'girly' time. I am also looking forward to attending one in late November which is being run by some other close friends....we have to wear our wedding dress or a bridesmaid dress to that one (will have to stuff my dress with chicken fillets though as I had a bit more to boast back then!!! But hey, who cares? It's all about the cause) These nights are so important to me. I lost a cousin to breast cancer on May 2nd this year and one of my Aunts has just been diagnosed and is currently undergoing treatment.I am also supporting a very close friend who has chosen to have a double masectomy early next year, as a preventative measure, given her incredibly strong family history of breast cancer. All of these woman have taught me a great deal and my life is so much richer thanks to their strength and friendship.

So on that note, take care and think pink!
