Welcome to the Family - Picture It Pageframe Designs

Yes, it is time again to introduce new brands, this time it is Page Frame Designs.
Brand no. 169!



In Challenge 12 for last year's PSA, winner Sonja McLean used a Pageframe Design frame to hang her awesome layout.

Pageframe products are made from FLEXIBLE acrylic which allows for holes to be punched without breaking or cracking. Their material yields a higher ink adhesion than regular acrylic and can be embossed. Paint it! Ink it! Stamp it! Glitter it! Bend it! Rub-on it! Glue it! Emboss it! and even Punch it! But more importantly, Pageframe came up with wonderful solutions to display your gorgeous works of art!

We have limited stocks left, grab yours HERE!

Congratulations to Gabrielle McCann

..
Congratulations to Gabrielle McCann of ACT Australia who won the Mother May I Benefit Challenge for the Sclerodema Foundation.
.
Gabrielle receives a Chatterbox hamper worth more than USD80 from us!!! Woo Hoo!!!
.

.
To recap, "Mother May I?" is a benefit class at Get It Scrapped! that began on April 27th and ran through the week after Mother's Day. Tami Taylor's mom died of scleroderma, and Tami created this jam-packed challenge class based upon well-known "mom-isms" to honor her. All proceeds went to the Scleroderma Foundation.
.
Thanks to all who participated in the class, more than USD505.00 was raised just from this event!

The gift of Gab!

"My name is Gabrielle McCann and I've been scrapbooking for around 7 years. I've been married to Anthony for 17 years and we have a 6 year old son, Conor. We lived in Hong Kong for 8 years and have been back in Australia for just over 3. Most of my scrapbooking is about Conor, but through classes at debbiehodge.com I've been learning to create a fuller picture of my life by sometimes actually scrapping about me!"

Woo hoo Gab! Here's some layouts from this wonderful scrapper!
.

CRAZY FOR LOVE
.
QUEEN OF QUIRKY
.
SWEET BLISS

CHRISTMAS SURF

Thank you Tami and Debbie for hosting such a wonderful challenge! Scrapbooking 4 A Cause!

D-Day 12th of May

.
When Bryant was born on 12 May 2003, we thought it would be a good day! It didn't start off all that well though, as we left the house just after midnight, the power went off. There was power failure in the entire residential area! So much for arriving with a big bang!
.
After Bryant was born, we went through a barrage of docs...in Malaysia and in Singapore. I consulted doctors via e-mails and phone calls, reaching as far as USA. The typical Malaysian consults mediums, bomohs as they call it here. So, I must say, we did see many bomohs nationwide, even went for miracle healing!
.
Alas, the bomohs say Bryant was born on a bad day. The worst day one could possibly be born on! So thereon, 12th May is a bad day! But not for us! I still believe 12 May is a good day!
.
12 May 2003 - Bryant was born! GOOD DAY
.
12 May TODAY -
My mum came back with biopsy negative results - GOOD DAY
Bryant is 6 years old today (outliving Doctors predictions) - GOOD DAY
We are featured in the Star Metro today - GOOD DAY
.
So I am embracing the 12th of May from this day on!
.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRYANT!
THANK YOU ALL WHO PRAYED FOR US!
.
May there be more 12 Mays to come!
..
Luv
Val

As for online buyers, please, please, please, I plead for patience as I struggle with time to list them. As you can see, that's how my 22-month old daughter behaves every night. It's no wonder she refuses to call me "mommy" / "mama" / "mum" and go for the formal "ba-ler-ee"!
