Closed for 4th of July!

 Because we will be CLOSED on Thursday, July 4, we will not be having our usual FREE make-and-take project this week!  We hope you'll join us next week for an adorable card featuring lots of dies!  What a great way to make use of scrap paper and have a quick, cute card too!  Meanwhile, we are taking this opportunity to look back at some of the fun we had at our first annual Unconventional Convention.  That's right - I'm calling it first annual, because it was so much fun, we plan to do it again!  Pictured above are the incredible artists (and me - I'm a wannabe) from Sweet n Sassy.  Wow - they really transformed our classroom into an incredible show floor!  And Kathy's demo of transferring an image to create a lake reflection was spectacular! 

 Then, Darsie Bruno (designer from Just Rite stamps and Spellbinders) joined us for some amazing demos on Saturday.  She was on a mission to share her knowledge, so I just had to photo bomb her :-)  She created stunning backgrounds with the large Just Rite stamps and Gelatos.  Very cool!

Rounding out the event was a visit and book signing with Mollie Cox Bryan.  The level of talent and artistry in the room was inspiring, and we look forward to having all the ladies back soon for classes and demos and another signing when Mollie's new book comes out in the winter!
