Well, it's surreal. My Mother's Day cards are on display at my local Winan's stores! I went and took a few photos and was pretty pleased with how they looked. I only wish the pricing was on a larger sign, so we might have to work on that. It's pretty cool to walk in and see MY creation staring back at me! Now, let's just hope they sell. I'm kind of a Nerveous Nellie about it, frankly. But, all I can do is try!!

Here are a couple of photos. Click on each one for an up-close view!

National Scrapbooking Day & SBOU Classes

National Scrapbooking Day is coming up this Saturday, May 5th , and we will be celebrating it along with Cinco de Mayo, with a Wicked Awesome Fiesta Crop. The party will get started on Friday afternoon with the posting of the weekend challenges, games, and daily sketch ideas. AND all challenges will have a raffle winner who will receive a surprise gift pack from yours truly.

Design Team Member Nikki Workman will be teaching another fun mini class being posted in our forums on Saturday morning. She will be teaching you how to make festive banner embellishments for your pages that can also be used as home d├ęcor items. And Guest Designers Patti West and Patty Bartlett will be hosting the Doublemint Twins Challenge. If you are a movie buff you don’t want to miss out on this one.

We also have a weekend filled with sketches to help you when you have run out of page layout ideas. We have many challenges planned that will center around all the festivities of the season. And like usual the message boards will be hopping.

We hope you can join us this weekend at Scrapbooker Online. We will be chatting in the chat room Friday night at 9PM EST, so please come join us, introduce yourself and make some new scrapping friends.

And a new online class is coming to SBO in June!

"JOURNAL OF A SUPERHERO"
Coming to SBO-U JUNE 2007, Registration now open
Superman, ya he's cool...Spiderman is mighty fine (dude, like the black costume) but we think you might know someone even cooler. Really. Yup, I'm talking about a superhero and it's gonna be someone you know and love. We're going to delve into the world of writing under the disguise of a mini album and take a fun, tongue-in-cheek look at someone in our own life who may have a few super quirks.

My superhero is my daughter Kia and one of her superpowers is Acute Olfaction Abilities, which to the average gal on the street means, she has an abnormally good sense of smell. Simple. Maybe your husband’s superpower is the ability to smell fresh baked cookies from his work office. Jimmy may be part fish, and Erica might just know the genealogy for every toy in the house. Doesn't have to be out of the normal, it just needs to be something they do consistently. Superman, ya he's cool...Spiderman is mighty fine (dude, like the black costume) but we think you might know someone even cooler. Really. Yup, I'm talking about a superhero and it's gonna be someone you know and love.

The point of this class? The, what's in it for me, question? It's about writing. We are using this fun topic as a tool to explore writing techniques and help you uncover your own unique voice as we explore a topic that you can really become passionate about. This course will run for 4 weeks and the overview of the class is as follows (plus some sneak peeks):

We hope you will join us at SBO University for this fun and exciting class. Please feel free to e-mail mfabbri@scrapbookeronline.com if you have any questions.
