Saturday I got the opportunity to do a make and take at the Scare Away Autism crop at Jazi Crafts in Oceanside, CA. What an awesome event, and a great cause. I learned alot about Autism, got to meet some wonderful ladies, and the very handsome Noah, a special guest at the event. If you haven't been to Jazi Crafts before, be sure to check them out! They have lot's of great stuff, and classes, and Michelle Jackson the owner is wonderful! Sheila from Scrapbook Royalty headed up this great event, and she was a delightful hostess. The always fabulous Donna Salazar was the MC of the event, and she was there with her lovely daughter Genna, who by the way is Team Edward. Nan Paturzo from Zutter was there doing a great make and take too. Be sure to check out the Scrapbook Royalty website for all of their happenings. Also, if you would like to support Autism Speaks, get yourself a "piece of heart", a special color of Glimmer Mist created by Tattered Angels available only on the Tattered Angels website with a portion of the proceeds going to Autism Speaks and it's only five bucks!
Ok, so it's not really blood, it's Red Velvet Glimmer Mist, one of the stars of this class. Sunday I taught my Forever album(a twilight inspired) class at Scrapping Lounge in Montclair, CA. We had a great time Glimmering the day away!
Tattered Angels has launched a new philanthropic effort called Glimmer of Hope. This program will feature causes that are near and dear to the Tattered Angels customers, staff, educators and designers. Tattered Angels will release a featured product for a cause and donate a portion of the proceeds to research or non profit organizations supporting the cause. You will only be able to purchase the featured product from the Tattered Angels Website and it will only be available for a limited time, so check the website often for updates. The first product release is "Piece of Heart" a limited edition glimmer mist color shown above. Liz Hicks and Patti Slade developed this color for Autism Awareness, a cause near and dear to both of them, and many others. For their touching stories please visit the Tattered Angels Educator blog here to read about how Autism has touched their lives.
I will be doing a Tattered Angels make and take at the Scrapbook Royalty event "Scare Away Autism" a Twilight Crafting Extravaganza on April 17th at Jazi Crafts in Oceanside, CA.

I live in California with my husband, and three daughters. I am an avid scrapbooker, and a Tattered Angels endorsed educator. I am also an educator for Elizabeth Craft Designs (yummy glitter). I teach scrapbooking classes at scrapbook and stamping stores in Southern California. I love using found objects in my scrapbooking, and ribbon, flowers, buttons, bling and of course Glimmer Mist and glitter make regular appearances on my scrapbook pages. My favorite subjects to photograph are my girls. I do something "scrappy" everyday.
