*10 Years of SA Scrapbook Convention*

This year commemorated a very special achievement for me... in September 2014 I attended the South African International Scrapbook Convention for the 10th consecutive year!! This has been such a milestone for me and I am proud to say that I have been there, done that, got the T shirt & scrapped what could be about 80 layouts and mini books through the years at the convention!?!  Wow!!!!
 Just thinking about it make me gasp for air!!

Anyway, this year we {again} had some lovely teachers attending from mainly the USA, but also our wonderful South African teacher and owner of the Convention: Glenda Viljoen.

I am planning on doing a very special layout of the conventions I have attended from 2004 to 2014 and can't wait to get started.

Well, in the meantime, here is some photos of the Convention this year... 


 On this photo is myself {in the purple!} and my friend Heidri {in red} with Jeri Tanner & Vicki Bentley from Bo Bunny.  Don't you just LOVE Bo Bunny?!?!!! The fun never stops with Bo Bunny!!!!

 Here we are with Charee & Jeff Filimoehala from Graphic 45.  We made the most beautiful book with them!

This is the book we made... with the "Come Away with Me" range...

 This is me getting my hands dirty in Glenda's Fancy Pants Designs class!

 With Layle Koncar from Simple Stories.  She is such a lovely person and her class was STUNNING!!

 The beautiful Simple Stories project ~ A Charmed Life.


This is my third time attending a class with Debby Schuh.  This year she represented Ruby Rock-it.  The mini book project was absolutely beautiful and I especially love the flowers in the range.
Debby is definitely one of my all time favourite teachers and I always enjoy her classes very much!

We also attended a class with Jayme Shepherd from Hazel & Ruby...
I will update this post with a photo of her soon...

 Thank You to everyone who made this 10th year of mine such a special event!

 And I hope you enjoyed looking through my special photos as much as I enjoyed posting it!

Have a Fantastic Tuesday!!
