All About Me - #3 Scrapbook Class

All About Me Scrapbook Class!

Join us for our third month of All About Me!
Wednesday, July 9, 6-8pm
Class Fee: $15

Each month we will create a 12x12 layout focusing on different aspects of you, your personality, your life and the people you love. When complete, your All About Me book will be THE ONE book that your children, grandchildren, spouse, and all family and friends will cherish the most.

This month’s layout will be about the lessons you have learned over the years. It could be as simple as, “washing your hands really does kill germs,” to something as thought-provoking as “you are truly your own best friend.” You will be writing a letter to yourself as a little girl, giving that little girl some advice. Mine will probably start off with “Hey, Little Girl! There are some things you need to know in order to stay happy as you grow and change.” Either come with your letter already written so that you can copy it onto your layout or be prepared to write your letter during class.

Bring two pictures of yourself, one as a child (any age) and one current (both 4x6 portrait view).
Materials needed: paper trimmer, scissors, adhesive, black photo safe pen or marker.

Class fee: $15; pre-payment is required.
Call and reserve your spot today. 630-271-0610.

See you Wednesday, July 9, 6:00-8:00pm.
