Oh, my, I now see why people are addicted to scrap events like CKU! Scrap Etc. was a wonderful experience. I left Nashville really inspired and excited about scrapping. I remembered that it is more than just a hobby (although it is a WONDERFUL, fun hobby). It is memory-keeping, and everything that I create today will be a treasure 30 years from now.
So, we made this cool mirror mini-book (these mirror books aren't on sale ANYWHERE) with Heidi Swapp. Heidi is an amazing person and a wonderful inspiring speaker. The book is cool, but you have NO IDEA how meaningful it is, because you have to have listened to her speak to understand the inspiration behind it. She is just awesome awesome. I am now a HUGE fan, even if her rub-ons have issues. I can't say enough about how her words touched me. I love Heidi!
I am also in love with Wilna Furstenburg - she is just so stinkin' cute! Here are "Vilna and Vanda":
And I will post some more pictures of me with the teachers later. I HAVE to post the best picture of all - me with my roomie, SHIRLEY! Shirley is awesome and sweet and fun. And she loves the Chili Peppers! Woooo Hoooo - Anthony is HOT! And I can't forget JESS! The other Tally friend who was at Scrap Etc. She is soooooooo sweet!
And there will be much more to come! I will have to share pictures of some of the goodies I got (free and at the store) and projects I made, and Amy Tan (Amy Tangerine t-shirts), and Jenni Bowlin and Angelia Wigginton and the scenery at the beautiful Opryland Resort and Hotel, and my shoes from opening night....
