Hello scrappers,

Just a reminder that our store is closed until Tuesday March 9th. Also we have decided to close our store on Friday mornings since we weren't busy. But we've extended our hours on Thursday to 10:00 to 8:00. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to come during closed hours. I will try to accommodate you. Thank you for your understanding!!!

Guest Designer
I am sooooooooooo excited to announce that SCRAPBOOKING GONE WILD will have a GUEST DESIGNER each month starting now. Our guest designer will receive one of our new paper lines to create at least one layout or more.

I am happy to present to you our very first designer: BETH SEARS.

Beth lives in Quispamsis with her husband and their two wonderful 18 and 20 year old sons, Mitchell and Lucas and the best dog in the world, Riley. She started scrapbooking in 2001 and has been obsessed since day one! Beth and her husband enjoy marathon running and cycling, travel and spending time with their sons. All of those things make up the main subjects of her pages.

Beth has been a scrapbook class instructor and has been published over 30 times in magazines and books by Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers, Scrapbook Trends, Canadian Scrapbooker and Scrapbook and Cards Today.

Long before she took up scrapbooking she had an SLR camera and is currently shooting with a Nikon D80.
Her favorite lens is the 50mm 1.4 for getting great portraits of her family.

Beth says her favorite thing about scrapbooking is that it combines everything she loves: family, photography and creativity and the ability to capture her family moments in photos and words!!!

Beth used the Scribble Scrabble papers with some Pink Paislee stickers, the brackets were stamped and then cut out. Circles were made with scalloped punches. Don't you just love those flowers!!! Great layout Beth!!!

Thank you so much Beth for sharing your love of scrapbooking with us!!!

For our Sketch challenge this month, you will be using a sketch made from Beth. Get started on your have until March 23rd to complete a layout based on this sketch. Bring your layout to the store before this date. All the layouts will be on display at the store for 2 weeks. Customers will be able to vote for their favorite layout.

Looking foward to seeing your creations!!!
That is it for now. Thanks for stopping by.
