Scrapbook art takes an evocative theme and surrounds it with artistic arrangements and layers of objects. It consists of photographs around which a theme develops and words &8212; journaling &8212; that explain and expand the theme.

In celebration of National Scrapbook Month, Shirley Ross, an independent consultant with Close to My Heart, and team members Barbara Osburn and Tammy Wilson will sponsor an art show, The Art of Scrapbooking, May 3, at the Selma Performing Arts Center.

A reception May 3 will open the show to the public. The art will remain on display during the month.

Those who want to display their art, or who are interested in scrap booking should call Shirley Ross at 875-7761 or 868-1358, or e-mail her at
