We had so much fun during our last Scrapper's Escape a couple of weekends ago! We cropped...and ate...did some make & takes...and ate....and cropped...and ate some more!! There's never a shortage of diet coke & chocolate when we all get together, that's for sure.

Here's a pic of the last to leave on Saturday night.

Stay tuned for our next one!

Family & non-scrappin' friends are welcome, too...which is why we have a separate sign up for the Scrap portion of the vacation. We've worked out the perfect schedule, leaving Saturday open for exploring Cozumel on your own or via one the wonderful Excursions that Carnival offers. And, during the time at sea, you are still free to come & go...scrap a while, go to the pool...scrap some more, go get a massage....take a class, then go play's the PERFECT vacation!!

All About Me
Instructor: Kathy Fesmire (Memory Makers Master)

Where are you in your scrapbook albums? If you are like me, you are behind the camera and not on the pages! Come join me and create this gorgeous page that celebrates you! This page with a large circular flip up element allows for a large focal photo and three smaller photos and journaling hidden beneath the flip. We will be painting, using transparencies and creating darling flowers from ric rac, chipboard and buttons. This page will not only put YOU in your pages but teaches techniques you will use over and over again.

Dynamite Doodling
Instructor: Kathy Fesmire (Memory Makers Master)

Do you ever drool over the hand doodled pages in magazines and think "I could never do that"? Yes you can!! In this class we will create a beautiful page full of hand doodled loops, swirls, edges, titles and journaling and you will be able to use these techniques again and again in your scrapbooking and card making.

Cruisin' with Chipboard
Instructor: Catherine Smith, CTMH Consultant

You'll create a double page spread, ready to add your Cruise pix! You'll ink & paint & stamp on chipboard to add dimension & interest....and learn techniques to use again & again.

Goin' in Circles
