Kathleen Reid Book Signing

So, the pictures are a little late...but...better late than never!

Kathleen Reid, author of A Page out of Life, came to Beach Scrapbooks on May 24th. She was very nice and graciously signed all our books! A Page out of Life is about a group of women who have various things going on in their lives, but are bound together by their scrapbooking group. They help each other with the trials and tribulations of life, and in the end, grow and lean on each other like sisters. (If you've read it, you know the hidden meaning here!) Does this sound familiar?!? Do you have a scrapbooking group of friends that are near and dear to you? It's an easy read...perfect for summertime!

And, while Kathleen was in the store, Amy brought in her adorable rabbit, Hazel!

Thanks for coming Kathleen - we enjoyed meeting you!
