So I'll waltz you around the floor a bit and show you what I loved!
Now, this takes me a lot of time to do, so I waited until I got home to work on the big screen. So please let me know what you think.
Here is my new BFF, Lynne Forsythe!!! She is a bundle of amazing talent, love for the ARTs, laughter, and the strength of a woman!!! If you've ever met her, she is never without a smile, and an upbeat look at the coming day. I cannot say enough about her. Love her to pieces!
First and foremost, CHA is about FRIENDSHIPS! You can make them close to home as with the wonderfully talented and big-hearted Judy from Prairie Art Stamps that I got to do classes with. THANK YOU so much for everything Terri and Judy! You are the BEST!
And then there are those you've never met, but have bonded with through the internet for a long time...sharing ideas, projects, thoughts and just enjoying the knowledge that you "get" the same things.
Then there is Jess Italia with Vintaj....AMAZINGLY talented young lady. WOW can she come up with ideas for Vintaj...and then there's the SISTAS...Wendy and Jeannie. Brilliant pairing of the minds! Here is Jess demoing.
Here is Jeannie demoing at the Ranger booth using Vintaj and Ranger Melt Pots to add Embossing Powders. WAY COOL. And wait until I get my hands on the new Embossing Folders they have from Sizzix......CLASSES!!!!
Having said that, here is what they did in the melting pots at the demo.
This piece goes from this on the left, to that, on the right with some powders and other elements!
And you can make it shiny, too! I mean is this GORGEOUS or what??????
Last are pictures from the Melt Art Class with Tim Holtz. WHAT A GREAT CLASS!!!! Here is a pin we made.
A Memory Frame and a Necklace.
And a Collage piece below is using Shrink Plastic. FUN TIME!
If you want to see the Grand and Glorious Booth from Graphic 45, let me know.
I have 3 classes to plan for the fall......going to Elmhurst and Creative Cuts and Crafts (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Linda and Claudia and their Peeps!)
And back to Memory Bound in Ankeny, Ia....what a fantastic group there. I saw Kellie and Dawn at the show!!!! LOVE teaching there. And WHAT A STORE!!!! Everything you need.
So talk to me, let me hear what you think. It's no fun talking to yourself.....I'm always open for suggestions and thoughts!
Can't wait to see Tanya and all her Peeps at Stamper's Ink next month!!! It's just around the corner! Time really gets away from you.
