If you would like to interact on the message board, participate in live chat, post to the gallery, download handouts, or enter any contests, you will need to register for the event and log in to the Pajama Party “classroom.”

Once you’ve registered for the FREE class, follow these steps for entering the classroom:

  2. On the My Classes page, click on “enter classroom” next to the Pajama Party line item.
  3. Now you’re in the classroom! On the night of the event, you can go to this page to interact via the live chat, enter the giveaways, and download the free Close To My Heart project handout.
If you liked the kraft container I posted yesterday, you will want to check out this webcast as it was filmed during our corporate album retreat in March and my Dream Pop container was created based off its design.  See just how simple decorating these containers can really be!

Dream Pop, Pop Pop!

Lately I have been asked a lot what types of projects I have been working on and although I would love to show you pages upon pages of completed layouts for my scrapbooks, unfortunately my books haven't been what I have been completing. I have however been helping a friend with her scrapbooks before she has to move and in the last 2 months we have finished 8 albums!  WOW!!!  Now, if I could only do that with my own pictures :).

I did, however, take a small group of amazing ladies on a scrapbook retreat at the beginning of May where we completed this layout built upon the theme of our weekend.  We used our National Scrapbooking Months Dream Pop papers, Pink Glitter Gems, Color-Ready Trinkets Wooden Shapes and the May Stamp of the Month - Pinwheel.

Aren't the papers beautiful!  I love how the texture on the silver and orange papers on the left page just seem to grab you.  It makes me dream in pop - dream pop! :)

We also covered these cute little containers. These containers are great for gift giving, home decor, stashing little trinkets and so much more. I have a few friends who are going through a difficult time right now so I plan on printing out some encouraging Bible verses and putting them in the container to give to them.  Each day as they can pull out a new Bible verse and be encouraged and blessed.  What would you do with yours?

To get your dream pop paper and Pinwheel stamp set before they are gone - head on over to my website and shop now.  Also, remember, sign up for the I Am Blessed Album Retreat by May
31st and receive your Dream Pop Paper FREE!!!
