Reminders and New Product

We are very happy with the response we have had to the photo event we are hosting on November 22nd, 2009. A few spots are still available in the afternoon if you are interested in having some lasting memories taken with the gorgeous set.

We are working hard to get all our classes wrapped up for the end of the year. You will now find the sample layout of Santa Paws in the store. Come in and check it out. Spots are filling up quickly for this "paws"itively cute layout class.

We definitely need extra creativity time with all the projects we scrapbookers tend to give ourselves for Christmas. So we decided we needed a full day of cropping.
