Thrilled to be a Canadian

...because I get to promote amazing companies such as Black River Designs!!!!!  Christine called me up today and asked me if I would be on her first design team ever!!  I was thrilled and completely honored that she asked me!

The Design Team consists of 8 talented scrapbookers from both Canada and the US:
Virginia Wong
Stephanie Klauck
Lisanne Cote
Aly Dosdall
Mimi Leinbach
Lynn Ghahary
Jennifer Matott
and me

This company has some incredible papers, 5 collections in
 all and their rub-ons are just amazing!!  So yes! I'm quite excited to be a part of this!!

AND ...

... the summer issue of  Canadian Scrapbookeris making its' way to homes already - I got mine in the mail today! yeah!! Another great issue! I'll post some of my layouts from there another time.

Before I close and head to bed I just wanted to share 2 classes with you that I'm teaching tomorrow at Clipper Street.

First is a "Thanks" Card set
We're going to have lots of fun with ribbon techniques. You'll make 6 cards in all.

Second is a Father's Day mini album.  
In need of a Father's Day gift then this would be a great idea! Fill it with your photos of dad & the kids - a gift that any Dad would be sure to love & treasure!
 A view of some inside pages. The album is made from scratch and we'll be binding it together in class using the Bind-it-all machine! 

And that's it for now! Off to bed so that I don't sound like a complete dork tomorrow when I'm teaching!
Have a great weekend!
