Closed

         Hi all it has been a busy one....starting with the Friday night store closing closings, such a sad sad evening.  My journey with All About Scrapbooks began in the early 2000 I would go in to buy my papers for my altered arts and cards. I was not a scrapbook just a stamper and would use the papers in my arts. I continued to shop until the end...yeah I even spent money there on Friday night.......We will all miss this wonderful place to shop, share ideas, make friends, and just relax.  This particular location has been open for over 12 1/2 years. Bob and Rogene have had three scrapbook stores in the area and this was the last one. Bob and Rogene feel it is time to enjoy their family even more, they are expecting a grandchild.
        I had began teaching at the store in February of last year right after Rusty Pickle closed their doors. I am now just waiting for the next door to open. I will miss teaching at the store most of all I have meet some wonderful beautiful people along the way. Several of these friendships of become very strong and meaningful. As the decade ends I only hope and wish the best for Bob, Rogene, and Tara....and the many others that the store closing will impact. Thanks so much Bob and Rogene! Weeepy eyed......
        A little on the bracelet it is a etched copper bracelet and the beads are hand made paper beads using the Webster Pages papers. I also sprayed them with a shine sealer. I love fisheys and of course anything beachy...hope you like it. I buy all my jewelry supplies at Ornamentea.com . Have a wonderful week and cyber hugs, Dawn Gallop
