Hi there! I am a single mom, who loves to scrapbook, make cards and do other paper crafts so much that I opened an online scrapbook store, FotoBella (http://www.fotobella.com), in my "spare time". I have a hard time getting focused to craft unless I have a planned event or a deadline, so I started this group.
I encourage anyone who want to suggest a meetup to do so, if three people RSVP yes, it will automatically be posted to the group.
We will be doing a fun technique review at meet ups to learn something new for your projects. I am not planning on doing any sales or classes at the meetups, since I want to work on my projects too :) That said, if you do want anything from my online scrapbook store, please feel free to order ahead and I can bring it to the meetup (as long as I am attending). We also have warehouse pickup and really reasonable shipping prices, plus a discount "perk" for group members. (http://www.meetup.com/Scottsdale-Scrapbooking/sponsors/?sid=6140172)
Finally, I have access to some of the best educators in the industry! If we get enough interest, I can arrange for them to come in and teach classes for us (we would need at least 25 students to set up a class). Check out our photos for some ideas.

I hope to meet you soon!
