Thanks, Vicki, for two great classes yesterday!!

Yesterday was the day that Vicki Boutin was here teaching two of her great projects. The group in the morning made a round album using the Scenic Route albums. The projects turned out great!! Everyone seemed to have fun creating them and the end results were something to be proud of. As an added bonus, the ladies learned about Stix2. Vicki showed them how to foil and gave them pointers, though that wasn't part of the class project for the morning. Then there was a bit of a break before Vicki went to work teaching two Grafton layouts. Sanding, foiling, lots of information sharing ... a really good afternoon. Of course, I was just observing. A sunny Saturday in St. Jacobs means a busy day for us here but we aren't complaining.

Vicki is coming back in September with some new classes and techniques. Watch the calendar for details!

Of course, Vicki isn't the only person teaching here at the Turtle. This week is full of classes. Monday Night is Lori's Crash your Stash. She always has wonderful, creative projects to help use up some of the product you have just looking pretty at home. Come play with us and use some of that Stash!! Later this week Lisa is teaching a great "Good Times" mini book class using the Birdie Bits paper from Dream Street. A very colourful album with a variety of page sizes. We have it on the counter so check it out if you get a chance. Then, on Saturday, Bev has two more amazing classes (do you expect anything less?). Saturday morning's Butterfly card class is sold out. In the afternoon she will be teaching a Bingo Board book where one of the techniques to be learned is colouring your black and white photos. We are hoping that more product will arrive early this week so we can give more of you the opportunity to take this class.

That will round out our May, with many more events to come through the summer. There's never a dull moment around here.
