Tag Album-Family Time

Thought I would share with you my latest tag album, however, no plans

for a class for this unless there is an interest in this project.

Upcoming trip

Kim and I are leaving on our trip to Virginia Wednesday April 30th.  Kim's

son lives in Fredricksburg, Virginia and she is visiting her son on his birthday

as well.  I was so happy when she welcomed me to make this trip with her

which allowed me to spend time with my daughter and her family.

   My youndest granddaughter Madison's  birthday was the 23rd of April, she turned seven

however, she is waiting to have her party when I arrive. She will be having her first

sleep-over birthday party and she is so excited that I will be there to be involved in the

celebration. The theme of her party is Hannah Montana.  The girls will have blow up Hannah

Montana guitars and of course the wigs and tons of Hannah Montana music. 

I can't wait to take these pictures, it will be so much fun to do a mini birthday scrapbook

of this event.  On another note, Tina said the spring flowers are beginning to pop out in

full bloom, I plan to get some pictures of the dogwoods, azaleas, and all the greenery.

I just love the spring season in Virginia.  We are also planning a couple of day trips to scrapbook

stores in the surrounding areas with a couple of Tina's friends, Sylvia and Janice, who also are

participants in  my class projects. Also, we convinced my husband to allow me to stay a few

extra days so I will be flying back on Saturday the 10th of May, thus making the an extra special

time to celebrate Mother's Day a little early.   I already have a project in mind for when I return

for the next class, in the event I can find the papers while I am out shopping.  "Vintage Travel

6x6 book and a (2) page Heritage Layout.  The class information will be announced in the upcoming

weeks.  Keep checking back for updates.

Why I Love to Scrapbook

I recently read this on someone's blog I visited and I think

this truly describes how I feel about my love of scrapbooking.

"I scrap to remember

I scrap so the next generation will know their history

I scrap to record the story behind the picture

but mostly I scrap for me.

I scrap to turn off the noise in my head...

scrapping calms and energizes me at the same time

it’s like meditation through creation.

It's therapy on paper.

Scrapbooking helps me find my balance and be a better me."

Recipes Remember Class Pictures

I am so overwhelmed at the response of the interest in this class, not only

the ones attending the class but the class kits that were purchased by others

not attending class.  I want to thank everyone for your continued support,

so much enthusiasm and joy was felt by all.  I loved teaching this class as much

as the class attendees enjoyed making  the project. 

We also had  a couple of first timers to attend the class, Kim and Irene.  

I will be leaving on the 30th of April to visit my daughter  and her family in Virginia

for a few days.  I hope to come back with some fresh, new ideas for upcoming

classes.  I will keep you posted as to when the next scheduled class will be.  I am not

sure if there is to be a class in May, depending on supplies and resources when I

return from my trip, the time element will be the deciding factor for May, however,

I do plan to hold a class in June after school  this year's session has ended.

Springtime 6x6 Album Class

Once, again ladies you did a beautiful job on your albums as you can see

from the photos.  Everyone seemed to have such a wonderful time and the food

that  you all prepared  for our luncheon was so delicious.  This was the first class held

in Penny's newly organized scrap room a very relaxed classroom setting.  It was a joy to

be able to teach with all the extra space.  Thank you again Penny from the bottom of

our hearts.  I also wanted to welcome the new comers to the class Carolyn & Cathy.

Everyone seemed so excited  they can hardly wait to attend the next class.

I am proud to announce the next class is already filled.

The "Recipes Remembered" Class will be held Saturday, April 12th starting promptly at 9:00 am.

Ladies, we have our work cut out for us for this class, however, it will also be a lot of fun.  I look forward to seeing all of you there.
