This morning when I opened up my email I got such a shock! Jan, my former CM Consultant from SA had left a comment on my blog! Jan – where on earth did you find my blog?? I don’t have contact with anyone in SA anymore so I was completely stunned! It was a great start to my day!
For those who don’t know, Jan introduced me to scrapping forever and a day ago! I didn’t even know scrapping existed until the day I went to her lovely home for a workshop! My friend rang me early that morning begging me come to ‘some photo thing’ to help make up numbers for her friend Linda. I dragged my sister, Kelly along too not even knowing what we were going to!
I still remember leaving that day so excited yet stunned that Jan knew so much about something I had never heard of! Jan was just a huge help… she sent me home with some paper, photo splits, a page and page protector and told me to get started! It seems like it was only yesterday really! Jan – I still have the black journaller you gave me (I was SO excited when you gave me that! – my scrapping was on a really tight budget back then!) You would be surprised at how often I still use the pen… it would be around 5 years old now and its still going strong! When I look back now… Jan, you opened a really big can of worms there!
Anyway, I am really grateful Jan for all of your amazing help and support and it was lovely to receive that comment… I just hope you come back now!
I thought it might be fun to post a photo of my very first layout; the one I did on that very first day of my new obsession that surprisingly lasted to the point where I couldn’t live without it anymore!
