Fun Time at Scrapaganza and a Few More Pics

Well, it was a FULL HOUSE!!! And a Happy, Inky HOUSE!

"It was a beautiful day, and we were beautiful, too!" (to  quote an old friend)

Lots of Metal and lots of Ink in Davenport Iowa and Scrapaganza. Thank you so much for all your hard work girls.

It was GREAT! Could not have asked for more.....

I tried to keep Penny busy by letting her take some pictures!

She takes great shots and got some of the many smiling faces that were there for the fun.

All kinds of different color combos....that's what we LOVE to see!

Many brought their own family pictures and incorporated them into their projects. They were wonderful images from the past.

Thank you Penny for taking pictures. It's so hard to find the time when you're talking and having a full day! You always make me smile! (see below...)

Just a bit cheesy!

And just to prove I was working, she got me demoing the Melting Pot and Embossing Powders with the Vintaj pieces. Jess's technique dazzled them!!!

Here on the left is a fun one. We used UTEE Bronze, Green Zinnia, and Violet then coated with a layer of Clear.  The one on the right has some fine black and Orange Glitter Embossing.  REALLY cool! Much more sparkly in person.

I seemed to knock the bluebird off my Row House piece from CHA and didn't find it anywhere, so I decided to try out my new Snow Cap Mixative on a different one, and painted in Denim blue Alcohol Ink and Sunshine Yellow over the top.

I think he turned out even better than the original that didn't have the Snowcap base!!! It's easy to shadow the colors with a touch of Alcohol Blending Solution on your brush.

Went to the Lincoln Balloon and Art Fest today. Bill likes seeing the old cars that come and line the streets downtown.

Lunch with Harry and Joni. Then out to the Wine Tasting Tent with live music. Our favorite was the Sweet Red Wine....a simple name. They're usually more exotic.

Harry didn't hear me well over the music and thought I said the name was CHEAP Red Wine. So that's what he went and asked for. It made the owners laugh.

So back home and another beautiful day!

Tomorrow.....2 soccer games with the girls. They both won on Saturday and each scored a goal!!!
