Scrapping On Sundays

Hello Everyone...

I know it has been a long time since I have done Scrapping On good to be back.

I first want to personally thank each and everyone of our blog readers for all of the prayers, hugs, and love that you have sent our way here at Windy City has been difficult for us, and just knowing that we have such a good support system from all of you makes it a little easier and for that...I thank you. Susan touched all of our lives in a very special way, and she will never be forgotten...I am not saying goodbye to her as I will continue to talk to her everyday as I have always done since I have known her...we will see each other again...

Things have been busy at Windy City as always...
For classes this week, Melissa is doing her Acrylic Stamp Challenge... For those of you who are looking to do more and learn more about acrylic stamps... Here is your chance!
I will be teaching Basics this week so if you know anyone who is looking to get into scrapbooking, have them give us a call to sign up themselves up... Keep in mind, our Basic classes are FREE.
Sesil will be teaching her Get Digi class (featuring Adobe Photoshop CS)... so for all of you who wanted to start to learn more about Digital Scrapbooking... Call and sign up for this class!!! If you are using Adobe Photoshop Elements, Melissa's version of Get Digi will be offered again soon. We will have Crop Night this Friday and there is still space available... Jen and I will be your hostesses for the evening.

On Saturday, November 15th, Windy City Scrapbooking will be hosting a "CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY" and will be celebrating YOU... our CUSTOMERS. The day will be filled with projects, make and takes, massages, makeovers and much more. Make sure you check our blog and our website as we will post more about the event in the days to come and also check out for more information.

As far as new product that has arrived at our store... Let me see...
We have the new ALI EDWARDS acrylic stamps that were posted on her blog a few weeks ago...
We also have the 7 Gypsies new monogram self inking stampers, new acrylic stamps and more ATC goodies. We have Creative Imaginations Lego papers and embellishments, Crate Paper Prudence and Lemon Grass collections... both are great for doing fall pages. Chatterbox has surprised us with their new "Together" collection which has cute papers, embellishments and storage boxes that are flocked with flourishes. Speaking of flocked... Doodlebug came out with flocked polka dotted paper called La-Di-Dot papers in a wide range of colors.
We also received the Tim Holtz Distressed Stickles...which happened to be one of my favorite new items from the past week.

Now you know...I do not have photos so make sure to stop and see the new items as things always look better in person. Also when you stop in, if you have any stories that you would like to share of your Susan encounters with her son, Evan, take the time to write them down in our special memorial area. We will be putting a scrapbook together for her son Evan of all of our memories of her

Have a great week everone
