Information for February

A new month for the Rapid Hearts Clubs. I am so excited to add this new dimension to our relationship. And February is all about relationships isn't it? There is so much to share every month, that I thought we should just have access to information when ever we want, not just when I get around to writing a newsletter, so here it is! A Blog! Who would have guessed?

Rapid City Club is Feb. 21 at 1:00 and 5:30.
Sturgis Club is Feb. 24 at 5:30.

This month, our paper pack is the Caboodle paper. What wonderful, warm springtime colors we get to play with! To make things move along as well as we can, you may want to bring some acrylic blocks, your Cocktail alphabet (if you have it), some ink pads ... Crystal Blue, Sorbet, Sweet Leaf, and Vanilla Cream. Some Sweet Leaf ribbon and a sea sponge (that is the round one we cut into 4 pieces)

As soon as I can figure out how to post it here permanently, I will post the point system for our challenges. You can do the Monthly Challenges all year long and still get points for them, so if you haven't done January's yet, don't panic! I would really like to have you send me a picture or scan of your challenge so I can post some artwork on my blog. This gives us a nice opportunity to share our talents. This month, I did recieve some art work from Denise K. from RC and she has given me permission to share it with you. I will be tallying her points in my little book. The prizes at the end of the year will make this so FUN!

This is Denise K.'s pink or red Valentine's Day card with NO HEARTS!

This is Denise K.'s first BoM page. I am so excited that she is going to be making one of these books. I love having a place to scrap just about me, and I'm sure you will too!
I am getting so excited for our Heart of the Hills Winter Retreat! February 26, 27, and 28 this year is going to be one of my favorite weekends! I am starting to get the prizes together and cut paper for the projects. And, I am going to try to throw out some hints to get you all on track for a productive weekend!
this week, my hint is .......
FOCUS - pick a theme, a time period, or a person and only try to work on that subject for the whole time you are there.
For me, having a specific theme keeps me on track and feeling like I am accomplishing something. I plan on working on my youngest son's scouting album, so I can get it finished before his Eagle Ceremony in May. What will you be working on?
Looking ahead .... Mark off May 1 on your calendar! NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY will be here before we know it and I don't want you to miss this fun day with your friends scrapping and laughing all day long.
