Thanks for such a great response to Scrapbook Generation's new class schedule for October and November. Many of you are calling to sign up for four and five classes at a time, but the gal who signed up for 14 at once has the rest of you beat!

I've been really impressed with the creative classes our Design Team has come up with, and it's equally impressive to see that you are responding to their projects with such enthusiasm.

Next week has five unique classes coming up. Two are almost sold out, and the rest have a few spots left if you are interested. Photos of all these classes are shown in earlier posts.

Monday at 6 p.m. -- He Said/She Said minibook with Laura Parks (Laura has designed a book that can be read frontwards and backwards! "His" comments and "her" comments are separate, but very together! It would be cool to keep for yourself, or give to your favorite couple.)

Tuesday at 2 p.m. -- Hey You All Occasion cards with Allison Davis (You'll be making not just one, but two oversized cards in the shape of a flower.)

Thursday at 6 p.m. -- Sending Cheer card with Allison Davis (This huge folding card will make anyone smile, it's so bright and "cheer"ful.)

Saturday at 10 a.m. -- Scrapbooking 101 with Marti Blattert (Marti is the perfect teacher for a beginning scrapbooking class. She's enthusiastic about the subject, and takes the time to help her students become acquainted with basic supplies, techniques, design ideas, and journaling.)

Saturday at 2 p.m. -- Mommy and Me Trick or Treat Basket with Amy Estes (This is an absolutely "too cute" project. An ordinary paper bucket is transformed with KI Memories Halloween papers, and ribbons to match. A great way for a mom (or aunt or grandmother) and child to spend a Saturday afternoon.)

On the following Monday at 6 p.m., Candy Conner has a cute School Days Picture Frame class and you actually make two frames. Candy is an elementary school principal, and she combines love of education with the love of scrapbooking in fine style. This project will work well with current school photos, and also has a vintage look that would blend well with photos from school days past.

I'll have to admit that I especially like it when Allison teaches a class -- I get to go to grandson Drew's house and babysit for a few hours. While Mom is teaching, we play with toys, read books, eat fish sticks, and give lots of hugs and kisses. I look forward to it all week, and this week I get two shifts!
