Congratulations on the Arrival of the Newest Island BABY!

A big, huge congratulations to Louise and Sean on the arrival of their beautiful baby daughter, Bindi Jayne! Louise worked at Scrapbook Island (I'm sure you all remember her sweet, helpful personality and her friendly Aussie accent!) last year and remained a good friend and loyal customer after leaving. Earlier this year, her and her husband moved to Washington state with his job.

Appropriately enough, little Bindi entered the world on National Scrapbook Day, May 3 at 12:38 am weighing in at 7 lbs., 2 oz., and 19 inches long! I'm sure mommy Louise is excited to scrapbook her little darling! We can't wait to see her pages! Thanks Louise for sharing yours and Seans joyous news! We can't wait to see more photos as the months go along!

Congratulations to Coreen Lee! She was chosen as Scrapper of the Month for May! Coreen scraps with her group of close friends here at the Island during the week. Her enthusiasm for her craft is always evident - she has so much fun at those back tables! Coreen has been scrapbooking her 2 children and 2 grandchildren for 15 years and is still going strong! She loves doing 12x12 pages, beautiful mini albums (be sure to click on the photos below) and makes gorgeous "iris folded" cards. She also loves to quilt, play cards and travel - with cruising being her favorite mode of transportation! Thanks Coreen for all your friendship, enthusiasm, positive outlook and your great sense of humor! You and your fellow group of scrappers are a joy to have in the store!
