Okay so nobody showed up for A.C. Moore's first Open Scrapbook night, but Danielle and I were there and she put together the cutest birthday invitations for her daughter's upcoming Birthday party. I laid out and mounted 14 pages of a gift album in under an hour's time!
Saturday morning I taught a class at A.C. Moore and 11 out of 13 people were NEW to Scrapbooking, most of them signed up for the class from the Gazette newspaper article, WOW! The techniques they learned were a little advanced, but they managed to complete two pages and a distressed tag.
This class was a reminder of why I do what I do...introducing scrapbooking to the African-American community is a new beginning to what I hope will be a life-long tradition for many of them.
Remember ..."Each One, Teach One!"
