I also have some sad news to share about SIA... I found out last week that the album I had created for Twiddleybitz earlier this year was stolen from their stand. You may have seen this album on a previous post (http://justmebingme.blogspot.com/2009/02/twiddleybitz-challenge.html) I was quite disappointed when I found out that someone would take someone else's memories and hard work never to be returned to them. It really made me speechless... I am very thankful that I do photograph everything I send off as at least I can re-create it .... well at least some day. I know that some of the embellishments were one-off's and I will need to make it a little different.. but I can at least hopefully find and purchase the paper again and other embellishments that I used.
I must say that it has not discouraged me from my scrapbooking or my want to share my work with others.
