What an Amazing Day!

Saturday, August 22nd was such a fun day!!! I travelled from Kingston to Stamping Bella in Thornhill, Ontario to FINALLY meet my on-line stamping buddies, Pauline (L) & Linda (R).

Actually Linda gave a Copic Class which was better then fantastic! I seriously learned some great tips & tricks and had a lot of those "Ahhhhh....that's-how-she-does-it-moments". I wish I had more time to sit and have a coffee/chat with these girls, but it was a very full class and a very busy day. Lots to learn & lots to shop for... I mean, we were at Stamping Bella headquarters after all!!

I have been practicing quite a bit since I've been home - but nothing has made it into a completed card yet. Instead I have dozens of little coloured images just waiting to get layered, nested, blinged & Bella'd.

A special thank you to my Mother & brother for coming with me for the long drive each way. You guys were great company and I haven't laughed that hard in ages!!

So hopefully I will be back soon with some finished cards! I know I've been MIA... thanks for checking in!!!

Oh, how happy you look! I so wish I could have been with you all! It's a little far to swim tho - will have to be content with waving madly and commenting on your blog!! Can't wait to see the new Copic images you have done- bet they are awesome. Mine still aren't here but I'll let you know when they arrive :)
