We're sold out! Scrapbook Generation's weekend retreat in Branson in late September is full and has a waiting list, as of yesterday. Here at SG, we're already knee-deep in decorations and prizes, and we're finalizing a class schedule that we hope will have something for everyone. Those who have paid deposits should expect a letter with more details the first week or so of July.

Because of the enthusiastic response to this first retreat, Karin and I are already looking for a larger spot to hold our spring weekend!

Allison taught a really cute class last night, to a full house! The group used color-blocking templates to make a Father's Day card which included a cute folded paper shirt and tie. Her next $5 mini-class is a "Purse-onality" card which even tops the card last night. Class members will use a template to make a shapely "purse" which includes plenty of room inside for a message, and has a wire handle decorated with beads. If you want to sign up, call 886-0440, for this Tuesday, June 27 class.

Also, don't forget our June promotion. Make a purchase of at least $25, and we'll deduct the price of a gallon of gas (according to the Kum & Go across the street) from your total, on the spot!
