"Desktop Birthday Calendar" Class from Jennifer Priest

Here is my second class that I will be teaching at the retreat! This class is actually a regularly $45 class that fellow designer PJ Bartholomay and I designed and taught at an LSS in LA County. But you can get it for just $20!!! It was also taught a second time at Pink Pineapple Scrapbooks in Vista and now I have just a handful of kits left to offer to you at this phenomenal value.

This makes a perfect gift for Christmas too. The mini book stands upright -- it can be placed on a mantle, bookshelf, or your desk. Each "page" is made from an envelope. Inside each envelope is a card with a tab for each month of the year. On the card you can list birthdays for that month. The first six months are displayed on the first pages of the book -- flip the book around and the next six months are on the other pages.

I have a limited number of these kits so sign up now to reserve your spot. These kits are packed full of flowers, fancy brads, awesome chipboard accents, and more -- you will be getting a terrific value!

To My Friend...

To my friend Rachelle....
All my emotions are raw so I will keep it brief. Words can not express how you have touched my life in the two years I have known you. You were such a good friend, mature pass your years and always looking for the Fairytale ending.
- I believe your Prince has come
- We got that expensive piece of toilet paper ( a college degree)
- And now was winding down from a great adventure of new things and places
As hard as it is for me right now I know everything happens for a reason. Maybe you had peaked out, done everything you were to do.Even though it has been a short time since the Miller family lost our soon to-be new addition, I can see now that too happened for a reason; You had been on your trip for a few weeks when we lost the baby and even though you and I had texted and emailed, I called you. We talked on the phone and played catch-up. I got to hear how friend the desert rat had seen the Pacific Northwest in style. Including spider bites, camping and coughs with a cold. You were having a great time, just what you had wanted to do this summer... enjoying life to the fullest.
There will always be a special place for you in my heart. And I will always remember you as the girl with the leopard print shoes and the love for everything Disney.

For those who knew Rachelle a memorial will be held:
Sunday 6pm at the Cathedral Canyon Country Club
