For any of you who live locally, I am getting ready to start teaching classes at our local Ben Franklin store.

My first class was officially last Saturday, which was called Scrapbook 101.

Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames of Grass Valley are starting to do a series of free classes.  Be sure to check their page to see what teachers are doing what.

My next class, this Saturday April 13, 2013 will be about 2 page layouts.  I will be showing you my favorite way to do a 2 page layout and get you practice the technique yourself!!
