Friends of Sylvia Valle . . . June 3, 2008

This week was the last meeting of my stamping class at the local community center, taught by Sylvia Valle, the former instructional editor of Stampington for 10 years . . . summer vacation is here and all her students including me await to take her classes, again, in the fall . . . I volunteered to make a Thank You card from our class . . . but at the last minute had a BRAINSTORM to make a memory book with photos of each student on a memory book page designed by the student . . . everyone did such a BEAUTIFUL job and were so positive and supportive of my last minute idea . . . here are a few pages that I created for the book . . .
The local newspaper published an article on her classes at the community center . . . what a perfect subject for a memory book layout . . .
Sylvia can have 25 students or more in her Greeting card class . . . and she warmly welcomes new students never saying her classes are FULL . . .
I can't believe how talented this gracious lady is . . . she also teaches (and LOVES) beading, calligraphy, journal writing, bookmaking (bookbinding), and probably other stuff I don't even know about!!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She tells us that her teaching is a LABOR OF LOVE!

You just gotta love this special lady!!!!

From just what you have done, I imagine it turned out fabulous! I wish I had someone come and doo classes like that around here.
