Another DNO has come and gone, another FUN evening sharing our love of digi scrapping! This month’s event was filled with the usual speed scrap, design workshop (Sarah knocked it out of the park – again – with her presentation on Contrast), chatting, laughing, prizes and LOTS of scrapping. It was our first time at Persnickety Prints and Chari rocked it for us! We kept her busy printing all night. The results were gorgeous!
Here’s a crappy pic of some of the non-crappy, pretty pages we had printed:

Where the magic happens (that’s a pretty sweet printer, yo):
SuzyQ Scraps was amazing as our featured designer. Although she just moved stores, she still found time to create a beautiful full-sized kit for us, and spend the evening scrapping with us and sharing her passion for memory keeping. She rocks!
Check out her kit, YOUnique:

Now as many of you have heard I’m hanging up my hat as the organizer of Digi Night Out. Why? Not because I don’t love it, that’s for sure. I really, really love it. But I have a very FULL life right now with so many things I love, I find myself having to prioritize and choose which things need my attention most right now. First and foremost are my four young kids (ages 7 months – 8 years). They need lots (all) of my attention these days, and I’m finding it increasingly difficult to “do it all”, and so I’m not going to even try. Instead, I’m going to pass the torch to someone else.
(Who is that girl in every single picture??)
And that’s the BIG exciting part! I’m so happy to announce Ms. Amber LaBau (of Stolen Moments fame) will be taking the reigns at Digi Night Out! Initially I was just going to end it, but once she heard that news she contacted me asking if I would be willing to let her keep it going. And I’m so glad she did! I will still happily be attending Digi Night Out and offering my support in any way I can. It will be so fun to see where Amber takes it – trust me, we are in good hands. Amber is awesomesauce and she rocks my socks.
Finally, can I just say “thanks”?! (This is the part where I get a bit teary.) I really want all of you who have supported Digi Night Out to know it means a lot to me. This is the first time in my life I’ve ever really started something from scratch, and to have it be a something that others wanted to be a part of, and be excited about, has been incredible. It’s so awesome to have so many people to share the love of this scrapping hobby with! So yes, many many THANKS to all of you. Keep on scrappin’, and I’ll see you at a future Digi Night Out!
