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.

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."
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.

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.
