Zippidee Workshop

This past Friday evening I held a wonderful workshop at my home. We completed the Zippidee WOTG!! Everyone's layouts were beautiful and we had a very fun time. One scrapper took her layout and changed it to fit her son's birthday instead of using it for pictures of her Disney trips. She thought outside the box to make her paper work for her!!

April 2010 Workshop

March 2010 Workshop

March 2010 Workshop

We had a wonderful time at the workshop last Friday night. We worked on a flower theme for a girl's page and a shooting stars theme for a boy's page!! The girl's layout was beautiful. We stamped each of the flower petals in order to create our own personal flowers. Then used buttons as the center for the flowers. For the boy's layout we stamped various stars to display shooting across the page!!! Can't wait for next months workshop. It will be Spring Themed!! See you all soon!!
