Education Day!

Yes, that would be me, Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi.
I was so happy to be a part of "Distressing the Holidays" a Tim Holtz class sponsored by Ranger. What a wonderful class and yes, as much as I love and use this product.... I did manage to learn a thing or two !! I love creative minds! So inspiring. Thank you Tim for the great class and Wendy for being a Fabulous TA!! Lucy from Simply Scrapping and I took the course and loved it to pieces!!

Who wouldn't..... check out the product on that table -- and yep, with the exception of the ink and blending tools -- It all comes home with me. Nope... paws off!! I'm keeping this stuff! *wink* Maybe I'll share.

Wanna see what we made?? Love this Grunge mini book. I am going to cost this out.... I think this may show up as a class at the November Retreat in London.... hummmm... what do you think? Wanna take a class like this?? Tim said we were welcome to teach it -- so... I think I will!!! Maybe I'll even offer it at the studio. Let me know if you are interested. We just did the covers of this book but trust me... its FULL of inking and embellishing techniques -- You'll be thrilled!! We even used the NEW Rock Candy Stickles and the NEW Crackle Medium -you'll Lurve it. Wait?? Do you think I liked it?

On a side note: Look Kelly...
Tim is using vintage music papers now too!!! I feel so trendy!! How did he know that's my creative signature!

After Tim's class I went to an educational seminar and a retailer networking event. I saw people I knew and got the chance to chat with them and a few other wonderful retailers and designers from the states and even Australia. Got lots of great ideas that I can take home with me. That's what its all about after all!

For dinner I nibbled some goodies at the "taste of Orlando" event held by the association and then went to a couple of product launch parties. All in all a GREAT day.... Looking forward to walking the show floor tomorrow. Don't worry. I'll bring my camera!

Blog soon!

Oh my goodness!! It's like fate brought you together - ha ha! That's very cool - you are such a trend-setter ;)

You must be even more excited that you got all those music books now.
I can't wait to come back to the studio to see what you are creating...and create some stuff too!
