Scrapbook Club at Pink Pineapple

I'd been wanting to take this "class" ever since I heard about it (maybe 1 1/2 years ago?). Scheduling had been a concern since I'm not that close to Vista & I'm responsible for a little kid until daddy gets home. I finally figured out that I could do it when I had another commitment on the same night of the month but then decided to hop in & go for it last week. The class is actually what's called a Scrapbook Club (formerly known as the Scrapbook Book club). It's up at Pink Pineapple Scrapbooks & is taught/led/coordinated by Elena Etcheverry of Scrapbook Royalty. The book this month is the hot-off-the-press Designing with the Divas by Danielle Forsgren & Rayme Sciaroni. Danielle was there & told us about the book & the cable radio show she does each week with Rayme. We each made some really cute little Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) as our make n' take (led by Danielle). Rayme stopped in & chatted with the group. At the end, Elena passed out a fabulous kit with the challenge to make a mini album & to distress it. A fun evening all around. I'm looking forward to playing with the challenge. This is what came in my kit! Fun things to play around with.
