Hello Memories & More fans! I’m super excited to be asked to teach some scrapbooking classes for Marcy at the store... I’ve been paper crafting for 20 years, and involved in the scrapbooking industry for 18 years. I’ve owned three scrapbook stores in three different places and just recently moved to the Kelowna area. I’ve been published in scrapbooking magazines numerous times over the years, worked trade shows for wholesalers, taught classes at industry shows & enjoyed working one on one with clients creating custom made projects. I look forward to getting to know you & seeing you soon at Memories & More for class in West Kelowna! Cheers – Melissa
