Love this pier!!! and the Mexican Restaurant at the end of it. Delish food and fantastic Margaritas!!! Wonderful atmosphere complete with Mariachi Band.... and who can beat the view?
So, how's the weather in Canada? *smile*
Just a Reminder that I am not in Kitchener (like you needed more proof :) ) so... the studio is closed until I return next week.
What's on my agenda tomorrow? Drinks on the Lido deck served by some guy named Issac -- well, you never know!

On the 3rd Wednesday of the Month we will be meeting, sharing ideas, thoughts, techniques, and working in our art journals. Each month we will highlight the Art Journaling styles of a different artist and, someone from our group will show us their favourite techniques and pages -- then challenge us all to be inspired by that technique. How fun.
This month - the fabulously funky Teesha Moore. Teesha loves to collage in her journals using magazines and bits of other fun papers like wallpaper, cards, gift wrap, you name it. Above is my "go at it". And, please note.... it's not finished. I'll be adding more and more to it as the fancy strikes. *smile*
Now, where's my pens?? I ahve another idea!!
Have a creative day everyone!

My little poochie went to the salon today -- conveniently located next door at Bark Avenue Dog Grooming. I always give Stephen free reign to do what he wishes to our 'princely pooch" and today he gave Mo a little something special, a colour treatment - hehe.
Mo LOVES going to get groomed - and wow was he overdue!
Ron and Ashley bathed Mo and got him ready for Stephen ... and Stephen got out the foils to add some green highlights. Here he is with the foils:
You know when Mo is in a great mood -- he swings his ears back. Stephen thought it extra cute when he did that with the foils in:
Here's Stephen with Mo when he brought him over to see me when he was done. Yes, Mo loves Stephen! Kiss Kiss :)

Here's another one I created for the occasion -- A 12x12 Framed Memo Board.
The White space is actual white board, the black is (yes) blackboard and the cork is... you guessed it - corkboard :)
I'll be showing students how to make these fun fabric flowers, we'll be spritzing with Ranger Pearl Mists and, well.... enjoying the process!
Class registration for the retreat will start when I get back from CHA. So stay tuned.
Would you like to join us at the retreat? I have a couple spaces open if you'd like to come. Please register by Feb 12, 2011. You can find the deets HERE.
Have a creative weekend all!

Yes, I had the opportunity to play with the Mermaid Stamps from Character Constructions yesterday. I made this fabulous "Ariel-inspired" mermaid and decided to house her in her own aquarium - in this case, the Heart-Shaped Shadow Box from Darcie's.

Anyway, hope you all had a marvelous (AND CREATIVE) holiday!!
This is a layout I completed for a Christmas Gift (My in-laws have an album that I add to every year) . It's Emily's year in review - minus the journaling which I spared you of *smile* This is also a preview of the Classes Offered at the Nottawasaga Scrapbooking/Card Making Retreat I'm holding the last week of February. This is the layout class. You'll learn about stamping on your layouts (they are not just for cards *wink*) and how to use Distress Inks to dye your ribbons and lace. A totally fun little one hour class, eh? hehe
Tonight the Technique of the Month Club is meeting... I'll be sure to post tomorrow - I PROMISE!!!!!
Have a creative day!
