The Island was Hit by the "Scrapbook Mafia"!

A quick shout-out to the "Scrapbook Mafia" who shopped the afternoon away at The Island on Monday, April 14! Susan, Jackie, Pat, Emily, Stephanie and Colene could barely get out the door without having one last peak in the window before heading home! The "Mafia" came from all around the area - Paso Robles, Santa Cruz and Atascadero. Thanks ladies for spending the afternoon with us! We all had a blast!
