It's a New Year So Lets Get Started

Hello Everyone.
Well lets hope this year goes slower than 2018, it just seemed to race past and I felt I was chasing my tail all year.
This is always the hard part of the year. I have to say good bye to the Ladies leaving our design team.
Most of them have been with me for a few years now and some even longer. They have become good friends and it is like losing a Family member when I have to say good by. I have to keep telling myself that change is good and people need to move on. This also gives us the chance to invite some new ladies onto the team.

So the first fond Farewell is for Natalie May.

Nat has been with me the longest, I first met her when Jess was still a baby in a stroller. She came into my scrapbooking store quite a few times until one day I asked her to bring an album of her work  for me to see. I asked her straight away if she was interested in teaching for me and it all went from there. Not only was she my main teacher, she also worked in our store, taught at events and pushed me to create a design team for Imaginarium. She was also one of our best chipboard designers along with Louise Nelson and Denise Boddey. Without Nat's  support and her push none of this would have happened. A few years ago she took over the Design team for me and did a wonderful job, she was so much better at this than me.
Last year we closed our scrapbooking store and since then Nat has gone from strength to strength.
Now Nat has decide to move on and I wish her all the best in everything she is involved in.

Nat is an expert in all forms of scrapbooking and has really come into her own as a mixed media teacher and designer.

 I still really love her layouts, her use of mixed media products and scrapbooking techniques are perfect. 

Nat loves bright colours and is not afraid to use them. These tags are a great example of her creative style.

This layout shows Nat's mixed media skills, I really love this layout of hers which features some of her own chipboard designs.

Thanks Nat for all the wonderful years we have had together. It has been a joy over that time to watch you grow and become the wonderful person you are. I wish you every joy in 2019 and every success in all your ventures.
Please keep in touch with me from time to time, I look forward to seeing up you get up to.
All the best
