Just a little nervous but want to share October 3, 2008

I have to confess that I’m a rather shy person until I get to know someone.  When I was asked by Janet Wakeland if I wanted to be a guest speaker at one of her group meetings, I took a moment to think it over and get over any fears that I may have with speaking in front of a crowd, and replied with a YES! 

My presentation with focus on how to add “those little special touches & wow features” to your creations and info regarding Stampin’ Up! contest entries.

Here are some deets that Janet posted on her site if you are interested in attending *wink*:
