As scrappers, one of the most important things we deal with on a daily basis are memories. Family memories, memories of loved ones, memories of holidays, birthdays, christenings, bbq’s and days at the beach. These families in Victoria have got no tangible evidence of their lives left. No family photos. No happy snaps. You can replace a fridge, but you can’t replace years of momentos.
In order to help out these family begin to put their lives back together I have started a scrapbooking plan - called “MEMORY GIFTS”.
Quite simply, I ask each and every one of you who read this blog to donate a 12 x 12inch almost completed scrapbook LO to the “Memory Gifts” program. Each page will be sent to me. I will collect them and bind them, then hand them over to the head of Pastoral Care for the Victorian Catholic Education Office, Maria Kirkwood in Melbourne. It will not be just Catholic families benefiting, it will be anyone who needs it.
Each family devastated by fire will be (in time) given album pages to help them begin their memories again. Those families can then approach their own families for copies of photos to put into the albums, or simply start putting in fresh memories.
If you think you can help, please lave me a comment and I will reply with my postal address so that you can send on your page. Any help you can give will be much appreciated.
I plan to have these albums finished by the 20th of March - that gives us a month to get cracking and create as many pages as we can!
If you feel you wish to contribute in some other way, please leave Sarah a comment and she will get back to you as soon as I can.
Many thanks on the behalf of the Victorian families who have lost everything.

CHA Winter 09

Okay with Valentines Day fastly approaching, here are some cute ideas on gift ideas for friends or your significant other.
To check out how to make these cute paper fortune cookines go to CindyG's Blog

Okay I find Melissa Phillips to be an awesome card maker. She has an ability to work with just about any product and make it beautiful. Here are some Valentine's day ideas from her blog.

Okay well it is almost that time of the year when the sneak peeks of CHA Winter 09 are starting to appear online. Just wondering whether with the current U.S economic state things will slow down in the scrapbooking industry, meaning not so many releases for the year.
Check out Monique Mclean's blog
She spends hours putting up the latest upcoming product releases on her blog. There are some gorgeous MME on there.....
What is you favourite paper companies?
What have you seen on the web, that we haven't yet got out here in Australia?
