crapbooking is a hobby necessarily filled with variety, but for those seeking even more new ideas, join the first "Scrapbooking Bus Tour" from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 3.
The group will board a bus and visit five of the area’s largest scrapbooking vendors. At each stop, participants will complete a 30-minute "make and take" project and will have about 30 minutes to shop.
According to Gibson, there will be games and giveaways on the bus and the group also will eat lunch en route. The trip costs $25.
"Bring your favorite friend or family member and join us for a day of friendship, fun and creativity," said Dawn Gibson, Community Education Director.
