onward and upward :)

life goes on - it doesnt always resemble what you had, but sometimes out of being forced to change, things can get better.

thanks for all your support, prayers and willingness to lend a hand.

I have to move forward and work, send etsy orders, teach classes and wash laundry.

Today the Girlfriends Weekend registration opened up!! it was one of several bright spots in my day. I am starting to look more like my little avatar to the right :)

Next week we will post a new video on leah's blog (there is a link to the right)


Girlfriends scrapbooking weekend at Ever After Scrapbooks in beautiful Carlsbad, California. It's going to be SO much fun! Breakfast, lunch and snacks (there's a chocolate fountain!) are included plus there will be: 5 classes,PLUS my photography workshop, goodie bags, prizes, make-n-takes and, of course, lots of cropping. And if you've never been to Ever After Scrapbooks then I have to tell you that you are in for a real treat! I think its like 7,000 square feet of pure scrapping heaven!

There will also be a page contest, so bring along your best page.

The cost to attend the event is $230 if you register by March 1st. After that date, registration is $250 but that's still a good price for all the cropping, goodies, classes and food you'll get that weekend. Fees are non-refundable.

To register, call (760) 433-9313

We have some amazing projects planned for this event, and we'll have pictures for some of them in March. Given below is a little info about each class and the workshop. We're looking forward to teaching and just hanging out with everyone, eating lots of food, and scrapbooking together!

Great family times acrylic album - Wendy
Have you seen those acrylic albums out there in scrap land? Have you wondered how or what to do with them? We are going to rock out a 6"x6" - 5 page (rounded corners and 3 pages have tabs) acrylic album! Our theme will be "Great Family Times"... we'll celebrate the fun and great times you've had as a family. We will be using some fun bright and bold colors (my favorite to scrap with) along with some fantastic embellishments such as felt, buttons and ribbon! If you have a fear of mixing up different manufacturers patterned paper we will put that fear to rest!

Festive birthday banner - Candice
Please join me and create a festive and colorful Birthday Banner! We will be using colorful combinations along with some fabulous ribbons and tissue garland to create a beautiful home decor piece which can be displayed for birthdays year round! There will be plenty of glitter, lots of eye candy and giveaways galore. I sure hope you'll join me for this one of a kind project. (gender neutral)

Cool layout techniques - Donna
I will be teaching a layout class using some new products released at winter CHA! We will be using supplies that are very “Donna” (denim, cardboard, paint, glitter, lace, etc.) PLEASE... don’t be scared... this layout will be different but it won’t be weird. I will be making 2 samples for this class, one will be feminine and the other will be masculine - both will be using the same basic products. I will also show you how to make a “bonus” project using some of our leftover supplies.

Recipe chipboard album - ME :)In my class, we will make a darling chipboard album for your favorite recipes. The album will have tab dividers to categorize the recipes, and the recipe pages are large enough to accommodate a photo and embellishments. Once we're done, all you need to do is add some of your family recipes and you have a great gift for someone you love or for you to keep.

Birthday reminder / address bookplate Rolodex - Leah
How could I possibly have a girlfriends scrapbooking event and not do at least one Rolodex album? In my class, we'll be making a very fun Rolodex photo album which will brighten any room! You can use it as a birthday reminder or an address Rolodex. If you like, your Rolodex can be both things, or you can use it for a completely different purpose, like a through-the-years Rolodex album - you name it! In addition to the Rolodex project, I'll have a bonus project which I'm sure you'll enjoy too.

Photography Workshop - me too!!
Bring your camera to get the most out of this hand-ons photography workshop. In this class, you will finally understand how your camera thinks. I will explain technical terms such as ISO, depth of field, and aperture. No matter what camera you have, you will be able to take amazing photos.

cant wait for april 5/6!!
