Creative Scrapbooking RIP

blogged by me domestic goddess On 3/29/2006 08:37:00 PM

I don't really know where to start my post today, I have just received the awful news that Creative Scrapbooking and Quarto Magazines have folded as of today. I am absolutley shell shocked, I had some really fun projects lined up. It is a terrible shame as I truly believe it was a good magazine, and I was proud to have been there from the start,and I had my first front cover with them. My thoughts go out of both Jennie and JO who have worked so hard on the magazine, and Have been absolute gems to have worked for. I had the pleasure of meeting them on several occasions and am going to miss are shoot that we had planned for a couple of weeks away.
Kirsty rang me with the news as I have been quite unwell today and she knew I hadn't picked dup my emails. Kirsty hun I cannot thank you enough, as you are right reading the posts and comments on forums would have upset me even more!

The 21 day challenge by Rhonna Farrer is on Day 3, I have completed day 1 and 2, although I will admit
to have struggled with this. I am going to continue as I chose to do this challenge, and today's post has got me a bit more inspired.
If anyone else that reads my blog is doing the challenge I would love to see your work so do feel free to pop a link in the comments for me to ogle over!
It doesn't help that I feel very flu, my computer is still with the doctors, I still haven't found my phone, my car has to go in for a service next week and I am waiting on blood test results!!. It seems my bad luck has come along in 6's this time round, so some positive vibes will be gratefully received!

A BIG thank you to Sue (baru) for Lilly's surprise package this morning. I haven't been able to drag her away from the TV. A DVD full collection of Kipper stories, and I too am pretty smitten with him.

I hope you have all had a fab day, and any of Creative Scrapbook contributors out there, my thoughts are with you, it truly is a big shame to see another good magazine go under

    Zapping you warm tropical wishes from Singapore hoping you will feel better soon. It really is too bad about the magazine as it seems to be a great fav in the UK.

    Anything from Britain is always so expensive in Singapore (including magazines), so scrapbooking stuff are mostly from the US like Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers, Scrapbook Answers and Scrapbook ETC.
