Introducing some of the brilliant work that was produced on Saturday 24th March 2012...
These creative ladies spent their Saturday learning new layout styles, designs and techniques and finding new ways to preserve memories in the form of... You guessed it! Scrapbooking. :o)

So you get to do Friday evening, all day saturday 10-4 and all day suinday 10-4 too ! There is even a really nice B&B right across the road ... talk about making things easy !
