Some Exciting News! 46

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, May 10, 2012 @ 9:30 PM | , , , ,

Sew happy it is Friday ;) This weekend is going to be a crazy busy one in my household! Connor qualified for the State Track and Field Finals in three events! I'm so proud of him! Fortunately, the event is held at a nearby Community College so we don't have travel far :) LOVE when that happens! 


I have some exciting crafty news to share! The sweet Michelle White, Owner of Paper Tales in San Diego, CA has invited me to teach at her AMAZING store! It is a cozy, shabby chic sort of store full of all the bits and baubles one crafty soul could ask for! I will be teaching my first class on Friday, May 24th and another on Saturday, May 25th while I am there at my home away from home :) 


The cards shown below are samples of what we will be making in Friday's class. 
We will be playing with the new Melissa Frances C'est la Vie paper line along with MFT products and Spellbinders. We will be glamming up some grungeboard die cut elements from the Spellbinders Sewing Elements set:
and making lots of rolled roses:
Thanks so much for visiting! If you live near Paper Tales and want to have some fun or just go shopping in a BEAUTIFUL store, please be sure to stop by! Be Sweet :)
