Last Nights Meeting

Posted by uniqueminds on April 2, 2008

We had a small group show up last night.

Chris went over some borders and how to use them. We had pictures shown of butterflies by Eric, Jim and Joshua…GREAT PICS! Suggest we put some on the blog if anyone wants to share them with everyone.

We went over how to build a 5×5 soft cover book with Chris. For those who didn’t make it out and wants to learn, please contact Francine. If you have any questions in what you learned last night, please email me.

Here is the URL for the quotes you can use in your books if you wish.
