Oh Nic, so sad to hear. I haven't done an scrapbooking for over a year just due to circumstances, moving stuff being packed away etc but although it will always be there in the background I can't imagine saying 'NEVER" especially when I've invested thousands of dollars into product as I can imagine you would have too!! It is interesting though because I have had many passions or hobbies over my lifetime and sometimes when you get a passion for something else, it's easier to leave another one behind and maybe that's your journey. You've been a great inspiration in my life when it comes to scrapbooking and I still love your book. Thanks for making NZ Scrapbooking what it is today! :)
