Sheep River Scrapbook Co. started in 2005, and since then MME has been a staple. Mostly because I am obsessed. In our small town we can't always guarantee the all the hottest new products, unless they are from MME! We just love the ease at which the pieces of each line come together. And there's so much potential for some real creativity & learning as new products appear with each line (you never get bored!). We ate up the 4x6 overlays when they made their way into the Bohemia line & have been impressed with all the great additions lately (we love love love the brads in the past couple lines!). My favourite line is Breaking Free. If you gave me that line & deserted me on an island with a stack of photos, I'd be a happy scrapbooker ;)

When MME started their blog, we got a little obsessed ... we were impressed with the talent we saw & thought we needed an injection of some of that here in our town. And with that, the Weekend To Unwind was born.
With Trisha Ladouceur on board it was easy to sell out our event & people felt secure knowing the classes would be rockin' the latest MME products. We kicked off our weekend long event with a Cocktail Party on Friday night. We throw about 4 parties a year. Each one has it's own twist. We've had a Vegas night, an Angel Card reader, a manicurist & even a temporary tattoo parlor one night! It's a good chance for people to meet, talk scrapbooking, shop & laugh. There's no actual scrapbooking at the party (besides free Make&Takes), just good snacks (Designer cupcakes from Crave Cupcakes are always a hit!), great drinks, and lots of cute details. Our "theme" was MME. We've never featured just one company but with so much creative juice it was easy. One of the games we featured was Pick-a-Stick. We used metal daily dose signs on the ends of skewers & stuck them into floral foam in a cute tin bucket. If the end of the stick was pink... you won a great MME prize! If not, well, you had an adorable little treat to stick in a plant or your pencil bucket at home.
Saturday we ran four great classes! Each one featured a different MME line & project. Trisha's projects were gorgeous & the paper flew off the shelves (Colorful Christmas was our biggest hit!). There were lots of prizes, lots of laughter & happy scrapbookers. And that's all we ask :)
