Scrap Class

This week I stopped by Now and Then Scrapbooks and I picked up a class schedule. They just happened to be doing a class today on acrylic books which I own but have never tried to use. I talked my mom into signing up for the only class (9am) and away we went.
I just had this feeling even before we got there that things werent going to go smoothly (probably due to them not having the price or the time right in the flier) and I was right. The teacher had not been informed that we had signed up (we did it only the day before) so she hadnt planned on coming in. Well after an hour of wandering around we agreed to come back to the 4pm class (which didnt exist the day before). The lady also suggested that we stay for the crop night afterwards.
While at home my mom looked through a Paper Trends magazine I had picked up there and saw a cute decorated cupcake bag and decided to make that her project after the class. So that meant we had to run to Michaels and pick up all the needed supplies. Since my mom doesnt scrap I figured I should make one to or I would never get my own project done anyway since I would be helping her.

I wasnt as thrilled as I thought I would be with the outcome of our acrylic crown albums but I think I can fix it up since everything is just fastened with glue dots. It was a good experience anyway, and now I just gotta buy some Staz on ink so I can use it on the albums I have at home.
Here is our finished project....

After the class ended we joined two other ladies in a crop night, I guess most of the regulars were on vacation. They were very nice, both of them were CTMH consultants and doing cute projects.
Of course we forgot to take a picture of us working on our albums but Corrina took a few pictures of us when we got home with our projects.
