Home Sweet Home

Back from Melbourne late last night. I had a great time and always love the city - so very cosmopolitan and stylish. Enjoyed some shopping and then worked so hard and walked so much that I ended up rubbing arthritis cream into the soles of my feet at night.

While I was down there, I found out that the new American Crafts Design Team had been chosen. Sadly, my name was not on the list - I gave it my best shot and that's all you can do. I adore the products and you'll still be seeing heaps of layouts with American Crafts all over it.

Thought I'd share my 2 pieces of work that I submitted for the Design Team position.

Congratulations go to the new team especially the aussie girls, Belinda Venables and Jill Geraghty-Groves and also to the talented Moon-Ko. Looking forward to seeing some beautiful work. Check out the new team here - American Crafts - http://americancrafts.typepad.com/.
Also, farewell to some of my favourite scrappers and friends from that team. In particular, my really beautiful friend, Severine Di Giacomo http://simply-s.blogspot.com/ and here is here blog translated into English for us 'non french speaking girls' - http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=http://simply-s.blogspot.com/&sa=X&oi=translate&resnum=1&ct=result&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dsimply-s%2Bblogspot%26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1T4WZPA_enAU259AU261%26pwst%3D1. Also farewell to Celeste Smith - http://www.celestefs.blogspot.com/ - who's work I really like too. Of course, there are plenty of girls who are staying on for another year. Love checking out Melanie Louette's style - http://melanie-notesfromhome.blogspot.com/.

Anyway, I need an early night tonight to so I can get back into scrapping mode tomorrow. Thanks for visiting!

I am so sorry to hear that your name wasn't on the list Leanne. I know that you would have done a fabulous job being on the team.

I love your projects though, one which I have seen and one that I haven't. Just adorable like everything else you do!

Have a nice sleep tonight - ready for a scrappy day tomorrow.

Luv Belinda

Oh Leanne I'm so disappointed in AC for not choosing you - what a loss it is to them I say. Can we sign a petition? As they say - there is always next year! Still love seeing all your other work in mags and here. Thanks for sharing...

After 7 long days at the gift fair I know exactly how your feet feel Leanne. I also discovered that arthritis cream worked a treat on my feet. So good to be home now, can't wait to see all the kids on the weekend. Have a great weekend.

Hi Leanne, I was just having a closer look at your layouts and I read the journalling on your "Shout" page! I am chuffed that you used a comment I left on your blog as inspiration for this one! Thanks. It is a fantastic page and a great way to celebrate your love for your "good man". Love it!
