5 More days!!!

Well ladies, only 5 more days and we will be scrapping till our hearts are content!! Unlimited scrapping (you can scrap all night long should you desire)

I have added the rest of the pictures for Val’s class. This “Radical Teen” chipboard album is a must have! I’m actually going make this album all about my teenager furry child “Leyna” (to see the rest of the album, just scroll down to classes being offered)

Some things you might want to put on your packing list . . .

1. Sweater or jacket as this room tends to run chilly in my opinion.
2. Fan, if you happen to fall on the other side of the thermostat.
3. Light
4. Extension cord and or power strip (please mark with your name)
5. Cushion or pillow for your tush.
6. **Drinking container with a LID**
7. Address labels for raffle tickets (eliminates writers cramp).
8. **CASH** to purchase raffle tickets.

As you know, all of the funds raised this weekend are for Lost Angels Animal Rescue and medical care is at an all time high. Whatever amount we raise this weekend will help them immensely! Knowing that another huge part of their expense is food, we thought that it would be fun for all of you to participate in helping feed them as well. So here’s the deal, go to your local Petsmart or Petco and either buy a gift certificate or purchase a quality brand dog food and we will give you a raffle ticket for every dollar spent!! (Be sure to keep your receipt)

There will be an Expression Cricut for you to use, you will just need to bring your own mat and cartridges.

             "Better to light a candle for one lost animal            
  than to curse the darkness of man's indifference.
Saving just one animal won't change the world
but it surely will change the world for that one animal.
Without us they have no voice.
                  REMEMBER PLEASE, Deep inside the heart and soul
of every unwanted, neglected and abused animal
is the ultimate desire to be loved!"

If you treat the animals with cruelty, meanness,neglect and abuse and see this as your "right", how must you treat those around you...they can reason - they can think - some can even talk - but they can ALL suffer..  A.Lawrence
