here is a note from rachael:
The lovely Jacki has given me the opportunity to send you all a message through her blog – what a lovely woman she is. I cannot believe how quickly this trip has come around. Originally when I was first asked to teach it seemed a million years away but now it’s almost two weeks until I fly out!!! I am bringing my lovely friend Kim along with me, she is a very talented scrapper from here in Melbourne and she cannot wait to meet you all! Kim is a little anxious, this is her first overseas trip, although I have flown many times before I haven’t been without my daughter for so long since she was born; that bothers me a little bit, but I’ll be fine once I’m there!
We have a regular at our local scrapbook shop here in Melbourne who is South African, Sharon Martindale, she has been to many Convention’s and has been giving me all the details and even teaching me a little of the Africaan language. The more I think about it, the more excited I get!
I’m looking forward to meeting you all, experiencing your culture and exploring your beautiful country.
See you very soon!
Here is what you can read about rachael on the convention website:
My name is Rachael Scholz, just plain Rach to most that know me. I'm 26 and my partner Warrick and I have one little girl, Bella. I live in Melbourne and work full time as an Office Manager. In my "spare" time LOL, I love to scrap!
I started scrapping just before Bella's first birthday in October 2005. I love scrapping to death and I love the online community even more! I have met some awesome chicks through scrapping and I am grateful for having a common passion to share with them. I joined the Scraptacular Design Team in 2006 and am a current Scrapbooking Memories Master. In mid 2007 I was a finalist in Scrapbook Creations Colour Expert Comp. I love working with Scraptacular and Scrapbooking Memories and look forward to the opportunities this craft throws my way in 2007.
