All in brightly  colored polka-dots.  You will love these cards!  3 cards and envelopes with office-style folder. 

Class #5:  Retreat Memories 2014         Instructor:  Sherahl Weadon    Cost:  $20
I’ve made so many memories while attending
Bonnie’s retreat for the past two years that I
thought it would be nice to have a notebook
to keep this year’s memories in. Wouldn’t you
like to have a place to record all those phone
numbers or email addresses of old and new
friends, as well as a place to note new
techniques that you may learn, or to store
instructions from a class that you take while
attending retreat? So I decided to create the
Retreat 2014 notebook complete with a pen
to record everything and a souvenir bookmark.
The notebook will contain pockets and places
to store anything and everything you may
collect from Retreat along with a four page
spread of scrapbook pages to highlight photos
taken with your friends from retreat. Because of
course you want to be able to record those trips
to local restaurants or JoAnn’s Store for a craft
 run. It is the perfect memory book for you to be able to look back and remember what a great time you had and would be something to share with your stamping friends.

Cost of class includes a packet of Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper.
