Two Great Classes - One Fun Afternoon

Sheri East will be in the studio on Saturday December 6 teaching two very fun and creative projects

Why not come and do both?? They would make fabulous gifts and together will cost less than $50.

12pm - 2pm
Sheri used artist canvas, fun little embellishments and die cut images to make this album special to keep or give as a Christmas gift. Sheri also used paint, ink and heat embossing to really make this project special. Two die cut dates will be supplied in this class so you will have the choice to make this album about 2008 or what's to come in 2009.
You will need your basic tool kit, sponge brush, heat gun (if you have one), embossing ink (if you have some), black and brown ink.
Class Fee: $25.00 + tax

Sheri has created a unique picture frame that will look great in any decor. You will use different shaped chipboard and die cut images as well as little touches of bling and paint. This project is a must have for your home.
You will need your basic tool kit, and a couple of sponge brushes.
Class Fee: $18 +tax

How's my Sign Looking Now???

We had an exciting afternoon here at the studio.
The Golf Steakhouse sign burst into flames a little after 4pm today -- I suppose it happened when they flicked on the sign when they opened.

Makes me happy for a sign without electricity.......
Here are a couple of shots I took of the "event"

**Update... the pics made the local news!! Too fun. Did you see them?**

I know I am.
The first of Go Scrapping's Card Cookouts is Tomorrow from 12 - 2pm! And I am really looking forward to it.

I have 5 Fabulous Cards for the girls to create. They can do all of them, or multiples of the same card -- it's up to them. All the cards they can create in the 2 hour class. So stoke up the BBQ and let's get this party Started.

If you're hungry for some cards and would like to join us, please let me know by the end of the day today. You can call the studio or email me directly. A couple more reservations are able to be taken.

See you at the cookout!
Just to wet your appetite....

Elvis Lives..... least at the Go Scrapping "Vegas" Retreat at Blue Mountain.
The proof in the pudding. Here he is with one of his ex-showgirls :) hehehe

I had a great time hosting a group of fabulous ladies at Blue Mountain again this year. Our Vegas theme was quite the hit with many of the gals "getting into the spirit" and even trying on my "Elvis" costume at various times during the weekend. Too Fun! Congrats Nina, one of our Chorus Line Babes, who won the "spirit award" draw -- I saw her playing with the stuff on the weekend! :)

We had some fun and fabulous classes taught by myself, Judy Beeksma and Sheri East. I loved seeing the ladies take what they learned in class and applying it to their layouts on the weekend. Such great out of the box thinking - truly inspiring!

Make n takes were had by all offered by Sue Martin representing Creative Memories, Kim McArthur representing CTMH, Jen and Juanita from Scraps of Joy and Judy and Sheri too ... at their In A Pinch Designs Booth. Our ladies were punching, stamping and distressing machines! :) hehe. I hope you enjoyed the make n takes as much as our onsite vendors enjoyed sharing them with you!

Here are a few pictures from the retreat weekend.
I know there were a TON of pictures taken at the retreat -- PLEASE feel free to post your pictures in the Go Scrapping Photobucket Site -- there is a link on the side bar of this blog. Love to see some of your photos too.

Thanks for a FABULOUS weekend ladies and congratulations to all our door prize winners!!!!
Can't wait for the next retreat!
