Ahhhh...I met a girl after my own heart. I had the pleasure of meeting Tia Bennett and blessing her with a copy of my book to encourage her to keep creating classes like, "Message in a Matryoshka" that I took this weekend at ScrapBowl in Chantilly, VA.
Tia's class is inspired and based on a Russian nesting doll. It's all bout connecting to another culture. Instead of creating this mini album about those who nest within me, I decided to make it about me and the multiple layers of who I am.
Tia feels my pain in trying to reach the masses and break out of the box and take a different spin on this whole scrapbooking thing. I think my book will inspire her to keep creating Ethnic Scrapbooking projects and know that there will be much good to come of it. It might not be the trend today...but it will be.
