FUN...FUN...FUN...IN TORONTO!!!

I have soooo much to tell you in so little time. I actually had to take a brake from classes to give you an update on all the excitement that I have had in the last week or so.

First of all, FUN...LAUGH...AWESOME GIRLS...DID I MENTION LAUGH... I cannot say enough about our 1st SCRAPBOOKING GONE WILD RETREAT. I had sooooooo much fun with everyone!!! Thank you so much to all the wonderful girls that came and made the weekend my best ever scrapbooking retreat. WILD AWESOME FOOD, WILD AWESOME COMPANY, WILD LAUGHS...AND SO MUCH MORE. One of the best thing for me during the retreat was seeing some of your faces during demos of certain products. When you get excited, I also get very excited. That is what I love about scrapbooking. I love teaching and inspiring others. As long as I am able to teach new things, I am happy. You girls outdid yourselves with all the wonderful layouts that I saw through the weekend. Make sure to go on the gallery and upload your layouts. Everyone deserves to see them. Great job everyone!!!! Thank you so much for using techniques that I demonstrated. Make sure to write on your calendar 3rd weekend in October because we are planning our 2nd retreat in St Andrews.

LEAVE A COMMENT ABOUT THE WEEKEND ON THIS POST AND HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN A PRIZE...OR JUST LEAVE A COMMENT. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU TOO.


Talking about new techniques and new products...OMG I can't believe I am buying more products. I actually am bringing home not 1 but 2 BICK KICK machines from Sizzix. You heard right. I just love it!!! Wait till you see all the new goodies I am bringing and new techniques of course. I always make room for new techniques. I never really was big on dry embossing, well I have changed my mind seeing what I can do with the Bick Kick. What else???? Crafter's Workshop stencils...OMG what a great product and FUN!!! I have tons of new ideas for you all!!!! Can't tell you everything at once...Keep checking the blog!!!!

Well I guess I should go back to my class...OH I can't believe I was going to leave without telling about my lunch yesterday. I had lunch with JULIANNA HUDGINS from SIZZIX. It was soooooooo nice to meet a scrapbooking celebrity. She is sooooooo down to earth. I can't wait to tell you all about my 2 days.

I should really go back to my class...LOL Great chatting with you all!!!

That is it for now.
Keep Scrapping.

I'm so sad now that I didn't fly to toronto, I was supposed to be there, but had to back out because I've only been home 23 days this year, and that is wayyyy too much travelling!
