Good evening! Hope you all have had a great weekend.  I see many people were busy with dance recitals, graduation parties and even weddings. And that tells me some scrapbookers will have some interesting pictures to scrap.  Don't forget we here at Maine Country Charm offer title pages as well as paper piecings to dress up your pages.  This week we will also have a new fold in card classes you won't want to miss. Also, as a test, the first one (I will go by time posted) to make a comment on this posting will win a prize!!! Someone will win their choice of 6 Bazzill 12x12 cardstock!! Let's see who is reading more than the newsletter or on Facebook.
