Boy have we had a busy week at Mystic Paper! Creative Escape kept us hopping all weekend. A huge thanks to all of you crazy women who drove here straight from the airport so you could shop before the classes began. And the group that came in the limo, all I can say is I sure wish I would have known so I could have gotten a picture of all of you piling out of the limo in front of the store! You crazy scrappers!

We had a fun class taught by Mr. Pickle himself Lance Anderson. Lance is the most laid back teacher I have ever seen. Here is a picture of us making a pickle sandwich. Not to brag, but Lance said he has traveled all over the world and been in alot of stores and he said "This is the coolest store I've ever been in." How cool is that? He even took pictures of our brand new display at the front of the store. It just happened to be his products!

The class was a blast. Don't they look like they're having fun?
Don'cha think he has the best job in the world? He travels all over the world and teaches women (and 4 men) about scrapbooking. And we pay him on top of that! Shhh, don't tell your husbands, they'll all want to quit their jobs and start scrapbooking.

Our next big evening was a class that was taught by our paper bag queen, Michelle. Her filled to capacity class was attended by a group that was celebrating their friends birthday. They all signed up for the class and surprised Jackie.
And, they know how to celebrate. Take a look at this homemade cake....and the taste....they can celebrate here any time. They even brought enough to share with the whole class.

Here's the birthday girl and all of her friends. Jackie is sitting down second from left at the top of the picture. Happy Birthday Jackie!
