This is VERY exciting news for me personally, as well as for South African scrapbookers and our local scrapbook market.
I have been an avid follower of Becky Higgins for as long as I can remember (remember Creative Companion days circa 2001?), and getting to meet her in 2003 was certainly a highlight. As you may have picked up from my own style, I love her simple designs and her realistic approach to documenting life.
Oooh... look at what minus 8 years looks like! CKU 2003 - my first Becky Higgins class "Idea Buffet"
Girlfriends' Getaway projects have for the last 3 years been loosely based on Becky's idea, including smaller panels for journaling etc. (look out for details of Girlfriends' Getaway 2012 coming soon.)
