guest teacher anyone???

I was able to take a class with the awesome Donna Downey. There was one spot left for her class that someone did not show up for and guess what???? I was next in line. It was a wonderful class taught by her. And you all know that I love love love Prima. I know I love Tim also but Prima is my love also. We decorated a canvas camera case to hold our camera in. I was able to talk to her manager aka her husband and he was sooo interested in coming to SA. How about her coming to Sa???? Who would love to take a class or two or three from the awesome DONNA DOWNEY??? Give my your feed back.
We have made it home and I am here at work today and tonight. Come see me. I am hoping to have pictures for you all to see tonight.

700+ photos

Ok I have over 700 pictures to weed from. What I am going to do is print them all off and put them in a mini album for all of you to see and you will also have pictures of layouts that you can take and borrow. I will explain more about how this will work when I get back. It is going to be great. We will have pictures of layouts and show you how to use the new paper we just ordered. I will also put pictures on this but need to compress them smaller. I am working on it. I received some bad news this morning about one of our customers and I am just blown away. Just hug the ones you love because you don't know what will happen to them the next minute.

Customer Appreation

Little did you know that it was about six years ago that the idea for Scrapbook911 started to come together, and we started frantically looking for a location. In late July 2005, we found our current location, but the building was far from being completed. As we were thinking about all of this, we looked back anf found that we have never had a Customer Appreciation event. So this weekend, we are offering the following to say THANKS!!!!:
25% of everything (except kits, classes, etc) both Saturday AND Sunday
No Frills Crop for only $5 Saturday between 10 am and Midnight
Our Sunday Night Coffee & Crop between 6 pm and 10 pm for only $5
All of this happens July 24 (Carrie's Birthday tell her happy birthday) and July 25th 2010
We hope to see you here
Michelle and Mike Dolan

FireCracker Crop Sale

FireCracker Crop Sale
Saturday July 3, 2010
With the Summer Craft and Hobby (CHA) show just around the corner, we looked around and decided we messed up. We have too much inventory, and nowhere to put any new items that are going to be released. So our mistake is your gain:
(Well almost everything; classes, kits, gift certificates and clearance items are excluded.)
This is your one chance this summer to stock up on paper, adhesives, embellishments, magazines and much more.
We will be open from 10:00 am until midnight. Hope to see you then.
