OK . . . so after ten years of running a scrapbook business I think I may have caught this "scrapbooking" bug!!   It first hit me in 2010 when we had three babies in 3 months, I have never been the same :) Those little people have inspired me beyond anything I thought possible.

But I digress . . . those little people have a way of making me do that!! 

So, one evening I find myself shuffling thru a scrapbook magazine, reading other people's favorite techniques and hints, when I come across a reference to a website with ideas for titles and journaling. Now I'm caught since I actually think of myself as more a "journaler with pictures" than a scrapbooker. I quickly find my computer, type in and immediately find a plethera of slang words (not all suitable for all ages) that spark ideas for titles and journaling.  This one in particular makes me smile . . . 

SLEEP TATOOS . . . the markings on the body from sleeping for an extended period of time, caused by blankets, clothing, or any other thing one would sleep on. Commonly found on the chest, face, and arms.

I am already picturing this scrapbook page in my mind. Now to get my camera and my victim!!

Granny's Junk Trunk

 Hi!  Amie here, the new girl at Sassy Scrapper. I am delighted to be revealing my creations in November at both the first Saturday event and classes. I spent ten years in the industry in outside sales. I've served on design teams on some online sketch sites, including Let's Scrap. I am so excited about the opportunity Mary has given me and am looking forward to making your acquaintance. Now, on to scrappy news....

When I first saw this new paper line called The Avenues by Bo Bunny, they reminded me overwhelmingly, fondly of my beloved Granny Mattie. Hence the name of the post and class. I've created four simply stunning cards using the paper line. Even if you don't consider yourself a card maker, these are so simple, they'll have you looking at paper differently and coming back for more!

Your class toolbox should contain some pop dots or dimensional glue, ice blue, black and clear, sparkly, glitter glue and a white pearl pen. If you don't have these items, I'll have some to share. :-)

Class is Tuesday, November 5th, one at 10:00 a.m and one at 6:00 p.m. I have six spots in each class. The cost is $12.50. Register online or call the store at 615-898-0050.
