Last night was August's Scrapbooking Hostess Club. Before heading off to Joshua's PIR, I picked up some scrapbooking magazines for reading material. Scrapbooks, Etc. had a one page layout with this paper pieced bird and embellishments and I thought, "That's very neat!" I bought the magazine with the idea of doing it with my class. I used Stampin' Up!'s retired Enchante' patterned paper and a new stamp set, Baroque Motifs, for the little vanilla swirls on the chocolate chip background paper.
These pictures are from one of my Birthday Club get-togethers. The journaling reads: "A good friend is the purest of God's gifts, for it is a love that has no exchange of payment." - Francis Farmer. The Birthday Club celebrated E.'s and C.'s birthdays. We started with a tea party luncheon at C.'s, and then moved the party to S.M. Scrapbook Store for a private crop. Thirteen hours of pure girly fun! November 18, 2006.
