As a really original and fun birthday present this year, my mother-in-law took me to a scrapbooking workshop last week. I had been sick all weekend and had to take the day off of work on Monday (my actual birthday) and cancel what celebration plans I had, which was a bummer. So I was really pleased that I was better by that stormy and blustery Wednesday and able to go out with her for a lovely afternoon!
The workshop was led by a French-Moroccan lady who came over from France. She brought all the materials and had an example project finished, but she really encouraged us to stray from the pattern and make it our own which I appreciated! Here's what I had to work with:
There was even a delicious spread of snacks to keep us going!
There were six of us ladies, mostly teachers, who spent a really lovely afternoon creating beautiful keepsakes ready to frame afterwards! It was new and fun and I really enjoyed the collaborative and creative aspects. Here's what Othman's mom made:
And here's mine:
Merci beaucoup belle-mère pour une superbe après-midi!
