Tim Holtz Stuff and another Day Trip- SAVE THE DATE

This is all from Tim's Stuff. Lost and Found and Vintage Shabby papers, Bingo Texture Fade Plate, Distress Inks, Alterations Die, Button and Key. The mini paper and old photo paper is TERRIFIC!!!!! SOOOOO many things you can make with these papers.

We decided to go and surprise our oldest granddaughter and take her to lunch for her birthday. Lunch, when you work 1-10pm is at 5 o'clock. So it was dinner to us.

It worked out great because we had to whole day to do other things. Like eat and shop. Got some stuff ordered for classes and had a gyro...

Stopped by my favorite place to shop for Scrapbooking in Davenport.... yes Scrapaganza!!!!!!!!!!!!! And it was a productive meeting since both Kelli and Beth were in!!!!!! (They have Vintaj there now!)

Set up our day for the classes this fall and talked, and talked...then the effervescent Penny Smith showed up and it was a completely great day. These gals are THE Best. So sweet and fun to talk to. And the mini cream puffs were an added bonus.

So.........we'll have 2 classes again. Save the date. October 16th. Don't have the classes picked out yet, but I promise they will be FUN! Any requests???

Busy working on CHA projects, but I did want to show you this WONDERFUL paper from Tim's new Lost and Found collection. I LOVE every stinkin' piece of this stuff!!!!! Truly wonderful. It's definitely a must.

His Texture Fade Plates are OUTSTANDING. Nothing like you've used before. Jim still has a few left at Scrapbook Friend'z last I checked, but they are gone, gone, gone at Scrapaganza.

You snooze, you loose. Got to get there fast!!!!!!!!
And the tissue tape is finally on it's way...That stuff is really cool. And so easy to work with. Make sure you get some.

Soccer Tournament (Go Blaze)this weekend, and we're hosting it here. So no travel. Bonus.

Beautiful day. Yard is done, laundry is going, time to play.

Create ART!

Oh sure, they didn't have that when I was there last weekend...but I did manage to get a texture fade. THE last one. Great little piece you did, total Linda awesomeness.Isn't that paper the best?!! Hmm, ideas for classes....

Ha, my word verification is SPITULI. Sounds like pasta made from spit. Gross.

This is an AWESOME piece of vintage style art!! Which is my personal favorite. I continue to wait (not patiently, mind you) for my orders for the embossing folders, papers, and tape, etc. to arrive. You've just inspired some new ideas to use it for. This long weekend is ALL about making ART for me. Hope yours is great.
