Changes happening at Scrap the Boys:

Hello Scrap the Boys friends and fans!

The current owner and co-ordinator of Scrap the Boys Amy Little is stepping down from the role.

Firstly I would like to say and I am sure you all agree that Amy has been a wonderful co ordinator of STB and designer, and although  we are sad to see her stepping aside we understand 'life' sometimes just means we have to prioritise. 

Thank you Amy for all your work and devotion to STB.

I am thrilled to be taking over as the owner/ co-ordinator of this wonderful challenge blog, which seemed a natural progression after being on the design team for over a year.

For those who do not know who I am here is a brief introduction:

My name is Rachel Lowe and I live in Perth, WA.
I have been scraping for over ten years.
I love the scrapbooking community, here and all over the world!
And I have THREE BOYS!!!!!!!!

Our current design team will be staying on yay!

So there you have it, STB is still the same but little bit different!

Thank you for stopping by and please keep an eye out on the blog, FB and now Instagram for news from Scrap the Boys.
