Today's the Day ...

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

Finally, we're getting a little taste of spring here on Long Island, and it's just in time as we all welcome Layle Koncar from Simple Stories to the shop for a weekend of creative workshops!

The fun begins this evening, with her a mini album that is all about YOU!  Now how's that for a concept, since we're all pretty much guilty of scrapbooking everyone but ourselves.

We'll be sure to update the blog with pictures from the four different workshops taking place throughout the weekend, so stay tuned!

P.S. If you weren't able to make it for any of her workshops, come on down to the store to browse and shop to your heart's content.

Here are pictures from Sunday morning's final workshop with Layle (sad face), which is all about the Happiest Place on Earth.  Could that be Disney, Scrap-A-Latte or both (ha!).

Here are pictures from Saturday morning's travel album workshop...gorgeous!

And here are pictures from Saturday afternoon's Crafty Girl layout class!

Here are pictures from the Friday the 13th evening workshop -Tell Your Story.

Let the Party Begin...

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

Not sure what I was thinking, but the long weekend PJ crop is officially underway. We're cropping' 'round the clock today, tomorrow and Sunday! There's sure to be lots of laughs and good memories created. Here's a peek at some of the early birds!

Saturday PJ Crop - Energy Is Pickin' Back Up:

Friday Night ... Time Out to Recharge the Batteries!

Friday PJ Crop Getting Underway - Everyone is so fresh and perky!

What Happens at the Crop ...

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

The sun is shining, the snow is melting, and today's No Frills crop is well underway. Those who shall remain nameless have confessed in a post a bit earlier today that somehow their crop has evolved into an ink buying frenzy. But shhhhhhhh...what happens at the crop, stays at the crop.

Thanks Scrap-A-Latte and Catherine Pooler!

An Early St. Pat's Day Celebration!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

Wow, what a fun time we had at this weekend's Pot O' Gold crop!  Congratulations to Laura H. for collecting enough gold coins throughout the weekend to win the pot of gold goodies!

Today's dinner was off the charts too, with corned beef, boiled potatoes and shepherd's pie. (Thank you Lily Flanagans in Babylon, and to both Dawn & Evelyn for the special home-made Irish soda bread!)

Thanks to all who joined in and made the weekend so much fun. You're all such an awesome group of friends -- a little wacky, but lovable (ha!).

If you'd like to get involved in classes or crops, check out the schedule posted here and stop in and call 631.482.9190 to check on availability and register.

More Goodies...

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

Well the Nor'easter is behind us and hoping everyone came through it safe and sound. Today's been a steady flow of art journals and canvas creators since our class got "rained out" last night. Nice seeing everyone ... and they're just in time to get a sneak peek at the Sizzix goodies that arrived today.

Come on in and get 'em while they last ... more will be on the way down the road too of course.  And this week, lots more is coming in from (sounds like Rimple Rories - ha!).

Hope you get a chance to stop in ... lots of great new things have been arriving since the  Creativation show in January.

Find time to create and preserve those special moments!
