ARE you looking for a place to keep your memories in? Have you ever thought about making a scrapbook?

Close To My Heart independent consultant Bev Weston from Dalby organises a scrapbook workshop every second Saturday of the month.

She said everyone was welcome to join in. And as the saying by Remedios Lina C. Villarosa- Garcia goes: "A picture is worth a thousand words but a scrapbook page is worth a million memories”.

Mrs Weston said she had organised the scrapbook workshops in Chinchilla for the past 10 years and although it had always been a small group she welcomed everyone who would like to get creative.

"With the group here I am trying to get people together, who have an alike hobby,” Mrs Weston said.

"Scrapbooking for me is about the friendship that you can develop with people, all different personalities and traits and it is just about encouraging people to do things.

"I have been a teacher as such for a very long time now and I just enjoy helping people get their photos and memories into albums.”

Mrs Weston started as an independent consultant for Creative Memories but when the company left Australia she started working for Close to my Heart.

Close to my Heart's mission is "we show you how to celebrate relationships through discovering your creativity, to preserve and share the moments that matter most”.

Mrs Weston specialises in scrapbooking and card making and travels from her home town in Dalby to hold the workshops in Chinchilla.

"I live in Dalby but my mum lives in Chinchilla, so it is a combined thing. I get to spend time with my mum but also get to do the scrapbooking workshops,” Mrs Weston said.

"I really want people to know they can come along no matter what materials they use and I give them guidance and ideas and help them along the way.”

The next workshop is held on February 10.
