Special Project for February

Gina K on Stamp TV showed how to turn an acrylic photo frame into a dry erase board. I just couldn't resist......so, here is my version. It is a 5"x7" acrylic frame that we will dress up to use as either a photo frame, a dry erase board, or both. The red one is using paper from the Roxie paper pkt. and the blue one is using some of the beautiful Dreamin paper pkt. that was just retired. I had some in my stash and thought I'd share it with you.

Class is scheduled for February 29th at 11 am. We should be finished by 1 so we won't take a lunch break. Cost of the class is $5. There are only 2 spaces left in the 11 am class. However, if I get enough interest, I will offer it a second time on the 29th at 2pm. That class should be completed by 4 pm. There will be 10 spaces available.

Registration deadline is February 18th.
