Hello Summer! Hasn't this week been beautiful, the sun is shining at last.

Whew, it's been a busy week here at TheScrapbookStore. Our "Paper Sale" is in full swing and the paper bargains are being well and truly snapped up. We've also been ordering lots of new goodies from the thousands of different products which were released at CHA Summer 2007 last month. It seems that all of the companies have been busy creating new summer ranges so keep an eye on the "What's New" section of the store over the coming weeks to see all the new stuff.

Last Saturday we spent a blissful, relaxing day at The Silver Bear Centre in Bawnboy, County Cavan. The weather behaved itself and we scrapped from morning until evening.

What a view!!

Anke who owns the Centre makes handmade teddy bears. They are so gorgeous - real collectors items. It don't know if she made this one, but everytime I walked into the scrapping room I was sure he moved!!

We had three classes. The first was a 12" x 12" layout using the gorgeous new Basic Grey Infuse Collection then after lunch we had a mini book class and an ATC class.

I don't think I've ever had so many cups of tea in the one day. In actual fact, it was hard to tear myself away from the craic and chat to get the classes started. Many thanks to everyone who made the journey and made it such a special day. Thanks too to Audrey, Lainey and Linda who travelled all the way from the Big Smoke and to Amber-Jane who made it all the way from Virginia (not the US one - the Cavan one!!)

Looking forward to our next one on August 25th. If you'd like to book a place at the classes or just come along to do some cropping, email us at
