Scrapbook Oasis class + giveaway

My mom and I fought Friday afternoon 405 traffic to get down to Irvine for the sold-out Scrapbook Oasis class. It took just over an hour an half, and we were able to get a bite at Taco Factory before set up. Upon arrival we were greeted with some familiar faces, and this display in the front of the store.

The feeling was rather surreal and a bit indescribable. My smile only got bigger throughout the evening, as I was in a room full of kind, talented and wonderful women.

It was cool seeing Andrea's photos & post on her blog. Seeing everyone get creative with all the products has been one of the best parts of this whole process. It's so great that we all get to share our love for papercrafting both in person and online. The community as a whole is so supportive and positive, and it's really inspiring. A truly amazing evening, thanks to Scrapbook Oasis for hosting and everyone for joining in!

For those who are interested in a kit, which includes color photos & instructions ($55 plus shipping), we have enough supplies to put a few together. Just send me an email hello(at)amytangerine(dot)com and I'll send a Paypal invoice. All have been sold, thanks heaps!
