Hi Lain,
Well I have just finished putting the 15 fast scrapbooking layouts into my inspiration book, which I will be using over the weekend at my weekend retreat. 
I have started working on layout Nine: Tiny Mommy adapted it for a 12 x 12 layout and have been looking high and low for the past 2 days for some little hat brads that I knew I had to complete the page and I finally found them about 10minutes ago. (I must have had my boys eye on.)  So will finish it off to tomorrow, I’m so excited.  Thanks for the great ideas and I look forward to be extra creative over the weekend.

Hi Lain,
Here are a couple of the pages I have done from “the super secret guide to fast scrapbooking”  15 layouts. 
I thought i would do these first to see if I can post them.  I have my fingers cross.  With page 9 dad’s hat I have to wait for my girlfriend to give me the journal for the page.  I hope you like them.

Hi Lain. I don’t know where to put my question so it will be here. 

I ordered the free lesson “A Little Doodley-Do” with Susan Weckesser . I managed to log in and I could whatch you while you tried to get contact with Susan, but all of a sudden I “lost” you and couldn’t log in again and now and cannot figure out where to watch this session. I have tried your blog and other places, but no luck. Please help… I was so excited over this lesson and even more disappointed when I couldn’t watch it

Hi Lain, I just left a message on your facebook page the other night …now I’m here with the same question. Are you going to be offering the webinar session you did a couple of weeks ago about starting and running a scrapbook business? I was not ready back then but am aligning with all good things and want to step out and forward…..what do you say? I know you were offering a classroom setting all about this is it still available? If not now when again?

I registered and was charged for membership to ScrapHappy family. I am logged in, but I get an error message no matter what I click on telling me that I need to be a member. I have tried logging out and logging back in but to no avail….there are no active links for help contact on the help page there.

Betsy Phillips April 1, 2013 at 10:01 am

Lain April 2, 2013 at 12:56 pm
