I'm Baaaaaaaack!!!

My friend Kelcey and I just got back from a 9 day road trip (and Gary won't let me forget that I was gone a whole 9 days!!!). We started out by taking an amazing class at Ruban Rouge Scrapbooking Store (in Palm Harbor) taught by none other than Tim Holtz. He is an amazing teacher and one cool guy. The class was fantastic! here is a photo of the of us.



We left Palm Harbor and headed to Orlando to help our friends Gerrianne and Sonia at a craft convention (CHA to those who are in the crafting world). Kelcey and I had been invited as guests to roam the floor looking at new products, take classes and report what we learned to help them out with their online businesses (Kit-N-Kaboodles kit club and Creativity Boutique craft store). It was lots of fun but also long hours. Here are the CuttleBug and Cricut characters from ProvoCraft! I had fun dancing with them in the aisle.



Finally, we spent Saturday back at Ruban Rouge in classes with designer Teresa Collins. The classes were very nice, and we made an adorable Friendship album as well as recipe book with her. Here is a photo of us in the crop room.

Gary and the boys are glad that I am home. Kelcey and I had a fantastic road trip. Can't wait to share projects and stuff that we learned along the way!
