Thanks for Scrapbook, Stamp and Socialize

Last night, I had a wonderful time at the group Scrapbook, Stamp and Socialize.  It was our first time meeting and it was great to make new paper crafting friends.  Molly, Kimberly and Bernadette attended and we had so much fun getting to know each other and making a thank you card together. I'm so grateful that scrapbooking and stamping has given me the opportunity to meet such fantastic women.  I'm amazed how paper and glue bond more than just to each other; they also create a bond between people that share a love for crafting.

The card that we made is yet another example of the versatility of one paper packet.  I was able to use pieces from the Clementine collection to make up card kits that we put together at our meet up.
