About Anita:
Anita has been a Creative Memories Consultant for 5 years. With a faithful group of "Anita's Scrapbookers" that get together monthly to scrapbook. When we get together, we gossip, share ideas and catch up on family and friend's stories. I plan a couple of retreats per year for the group. We have been to retreats over the years in Big Bear, San Diego, and now in Palm Desert.
I work full-time as an Information Systems Coordinator for the City of Anaheim. I love my job and my part-time consulting for Creative Memories. All of "Anita's Scrapbookers" have full-time jobs and they look forward to their time away at retreats, so they can finish their scrapbooking projects. I love what I do, and look forward to retiring (for the 2nd time) so I can dedicate more time to planning and attending scrapbooking events.

Jennifer Priest

About Jennifer:
My scrapbooking adventure began in 1998 when I was pregnant with my first child. I started scrapbooking using a kit of pre-printed pages with journaling prompts, cutesy stickers, and instructions on where to place the pictures. Wow, have things changed since then!
In 2003, I branched out from just scrapping with my friends and started teaching classes at crops, local scrapbook stores, and expos. I've also been published online and in print magazines as well as designed samples for several scrapbooking manufacturers. I've been teaching at Desert Scrappers Retreats for a year now and love it!!
My ventures into the scrapbooking world have also allowed me the opportunity to be involved with Scrapbook Royalty, a group that organizes charity crops. The committee members of Scrapbook Royalty love sharing their craft and doing something for the community at the same time - what could be better than that? Everyone on our committee, including myself, is strictly an unpaid volunteer so we can donate as much money as possible to the causes we have helped to support.
For more information about Scrapbook Royalty, please check out our website:

About This Class:
Using yummy Pink Paislee Papers, we'll be creating TWO different layouts for a total of 4 pages in this class! One layout is "boy" and one is "girl" but they can be for whatever you like. There will be a mix of embellies you can choose from in the class to make the page "yours". We'll also be using the Bind-It- All to create a cool effect on the borders of one of the layouts.
Supplies: Scissors, Paper Trimmer, Paper Piercer, Tape Runner, 3D adhesive (foam or pop dots), glue dots, and Chalk Cateye Inks (Tangerine, Lime Pastel, and Dark Peony).
