April Scrappy Flower Class

So this weekend, I worked with a class of 14 making paper flowers that I had found in various areas on the net and Utube. Pretty fun stuff. This is the class board of the flowers that I created for the class.

The ladies were all so fun, and even though, I was apprehensive about teaching such a big class, we got done on time and made some pretty flowers. The key to this class, was that it was using your scraps, and I know for most paper crafters, what to do with the scraps is always the thing that we wonder about so I used a ton of my OWN scraps and the LSS provided scraps too. The class was about technique and quite a bargain, for $5. We are doing it again in 3 weeks, since there was such an overwhelming response and unfortunately, Rhonda, The owner, did have to limit the class size, so we are coming back for another time on May 15th. It is going to be fun!

I recently got some October Afternoon in the mail. I love this stuff and I am sure that these two lines are ones that I will buy again and again. It is almost too pretty to cut into and I have to force myself to cut into it. This is one of the 4 cards I made for our secretaries at work for Administrative Professionals week. They usually ask me to make the cards to pass around. I made the cards and organized the flowers, gifts, and the Friday salad bar for them. It turned out great. (The other 3 cards' pictures did not turn out well, so I cannot post them.) Must get back to scrapping. Have a great week! Love and Hugs, Lara
