While in California this spring, my sister, Heidi Gonzales (My Lil' Scrap Corner), gave several card and embellishment classes, and I thoroughly enjoyed them. I always learn so much from my sis! Mom, sis, and I traveled to several crops and a three-day scrapping retreat in Chico, Red Bluff, and Shingletown. We had an absolutely GREAT time...I caught up on my lots of my "To Do" stash and kits; some I bought and they sat waiting for several years! One night I scrapped until 2:00 a.m., but another scrapper took the grand prize, and stayed up until 5:00 a.m.!! The retreat crop room was open 24-hours a day...what a great place to get away!
One of the classes my sis taught was a flower-making. We made four different styles flowers: a Gerber Daisy, a Carnation (with iridescent glittered netting), a small Rose, and a Peony. I decided to use my new flower skills to make a Mother's Day card for Mom, which was a challenge with her sitting right by me cropping away! No, Mom, the card really wasn't for Michele's birthday, as you found out!
