We came, we scrapped, we shopped

Well, so much for timely posting about my classes at Scrapdoodles! Sandy and I had a fabulous time and the classes were amazing. We did not even come close to finishing our projects, but we learned some awesome new techniques including HELLO, gel medium--how did I ever live without you? I have spoken before of my altering addiction and gel medium kicks Mod Podge's butt. No wrinkles, no drying time, and it makes adhering fabric to chipboard a piece of cake.

See the mess around me, and next to it Sandy's spotless area? This is how I scrap, always amidst chaos with stuff flying through the air, and I am wholly unapologetic about it. It's how I create.

Photographic evidence of Sandy threatening me with a hammer.

Look, it's Cindy Liebel! It was so much fun to catch up with her. Cindy is a sweetheart and a super talented scrapper.

And the obligatory celeb and Sandy with Donna Downey.

I finished my blue damask album this week (except for some captions that I'm still pondering about) and it may be the most beautiful project I've ever made. I can't even take credit for it because it was designed by Donna Downey, but hey I put it together! And see that Fancy Pants tiny ball trim? Totally my idea. This little album is so full of awesomeness that it won't favorite thing!

We were privileged to have dinner with Donna and some of the store staff and teachers afterward. HUGE thanks to Cheryl for working Sandy in so I didn't have to leave her standing outside the store in the pouring rain while we ate. Thanks also to Donna for creating such great projects and making the classes so much fun. I'm looking forward to taking more classes with her on the cruise in January.
