For our August Technique Class we are changing things up a bit.  My youngest daughter has a passion for animals.  Two years ago on her fourth birthday, she asked for a cat themed party and asked her guests to bring donations of pet food for PAWs (a local shelter for animals).  It was a great success and we made a wonderful scrapbook page celebrating the donation which includes her letter from PAWs.  Recently, she asked if we could do a Stampin’ Up! event to benefit PAWs.  I said “of course.”  And, since Tessa’s birthday is in August, we will be doing this for our August class. 

So, for our August Class, we will do at least two projects featuring some of your favorite animal stamps.  We’ve selected Aviary, C is for Cat and D is for Dog as our stamp sets.  For the workshop fee, we are asking that you bring a donation to benefit PAWs.  To help you decide what to bring for a donation, please check out the PAWs Wishlist.  There are many things they need, everything from food to equipment. 

I’ll also be sharing some literature about volunteer opportunities and services offered by PAWs.  I hope you all will be able to attend our class.  Join us on August 20 at 5:00 PM.  RSVP to me.  Everyone who attends will be eligible for a drawing to win a free stamp set.

Don’t live in the Bothell area?  Make an effort to help out the animals in your area, then post me a message telling Tessa and I what you’ve done.  You’ll be entered in the contest to win a free stamp set.

God Bless and Happy Stampin’
