I can't remember if they have a shuttle to the airport or not. (I am waiting for the response) I am happy to run my shuttle service if necessary!
Thanks for getting this going, Conda! I'll be looking for a roomie when I make my reservations...anyone interested?

I agree! Can't wait to see you again!
25 April 2013 - 07:44 AMFlights from Detroit are in the $380 range at the moment, but we're outside that magic window of 45 - 60 days in advance, I'll keep checking!

23 April 2013 - 07:07 AMHi Leslie,
Welcome to ScrapGirls!
I'm also unfamiliar with using a bound wallpaper sample book as a scrapbook, so I did a search and found some food for thought. While wallpaper is beautiful, it's not made acid free - like all commercial scrapbook paper - so from a preservation perspective, don't use original photos on it. Also, from an archival perspective, it becomes brittle and yellowed over time, which may render all your hard work a problem for future generations. There was also speculation on whether the samples have adhesive on back, since some wallpaper comes with it and some without - being samples, that was a big question.
One cool idea I saw that didn't so much involve using the bound book as a scrapbook but someone was using the samples to create journal/book covers - presumably with all kinds of fun embellishments.
Many others have mentioned the ScrapGirls blog, I highly recommend checking it out for inspiration for your projects!
Best of luck on your projects!
