Our first class will be Monday, April 12th from 6:00pm - 8:00pm. You may just pick up the kit and take it home if you would like or you can come between 6:00 and 8:0pm and someone will help you with the page layout. We do have a very limited amount of space available and this is an exclusive club so you must sign up to take part and I suggest you act fast because I know the space will fill up quickly. Please call the shop at 813-26-7946 if you have any additional questions or would like to sign up.

......and we're celebrating with Tweety Jill and her Alice in Wonderland collage packs
Jill Haglund from Tweety Jill designs will be in our store teaching a wonderful Alice in Wonderland class complete with ATC cards, greeting cards, and a crown book for three days. This was so much fun last month that we just had to do it again. See all the photos from the last event here: http://scraporium.blogspot.com/2010/02/alice-in-wonderland-event.html
The dates are Friday, March 19th through Sunday, March 21st (please ignore the dates on the brochure, this has the old dates). The cost is $125 for the entire weekend or $50 a class. All the attendees at the last event said it was well worth the money, you get a lot of product and learn some great new techniques. Jill is a wonderful teacher and we hope you all get a chance to do at least one of her classes. We promise you will have a blast!
If you cannot attend the event, check out her beautiful stamps, collage packs, and card kits in Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter
We put out our beautiful sign made by Karen to welcome the Treasure Hunters
.....added some fun dress-up clothes
.....we put out a few samples
And the Treasure Hunt began
We invited Jill Haglund from Tweety Jill who was kind enough to do an ATC make 'n take for all the visitors
and also the Scrapbook Guild
Check out this new guild with monthly meetings and fantastic speakers http://www.tampabayscrapbookingguild.com/home.html
plus we had Brenda from Scrapendipity Retreats promoting her Spring Fling in April at the Westshore Marriott
Check out her great events http://www.scrapendipityretreats.com/
All the Treasure Hunters got to make their 6x6 page
and, of course, have their photo taken with the infamous Captain Jack
When Captain Jack was not there, they still had fun with our Treasure Chest
It was an incredible week! We are all exhausted and ready to actually rest but it has been so great meeting new people, having fun with Captain Jack and Tweety Jill, and stamping passports. We hope that all of the Treasure Hunters will be able to come visit us again soon for a class, crop, or just to shop and hang out.
We have to thank everyone who helped out, this was a lot of work and takes a whole team to get our store ready! Thanks so much to Bonnie, Karen, Terry, Sheila, Kelly, Sue, Barbara, Brenda, and the Scrapbook Guild.
