It's that time again when the buses are on the road making several stops, the routines are set, backpacks are full and lunches get packed. I love the excitement of a new school year. Leslie designed this layout using the newest Simple Stories line. With the envelope pocket and large tags you have space for lots of pictures and plenty of journaling

More CE Fun!

Jenaye and Kelli Collins shared their flower making skills. These flowers were so much fun to make.

Janet Hopkins taught some fun techniques as we made this shadow box. I really loved the idea and wanted to be able to hang this in my room so I spent a good portion of the class in the store buying product to change the colors to match my room. Thanks Janet for a super fun class. I hope to be able to sweet talk her into coming down to teach a Scrapp'n Savvy.

I skipped out on a class to spend some time at the pool with Linken and his great parents. I so wish I could have more time with him so he could get to know his grandma in Texas and how much I love him. Being a grandma is amazing, being a long distant grandma stinks!

My niece Heidi did a great job and had some fun techniques to share in making her famous totally Heidi big signs.

Another favorite and you will bet that we will be playing with this concept some more at Scrapp'n Savvy. Amy is not only super talented but super fun teacher. It is a treat to be in any class Amy teaches.

It was time for closing and we always start the last dinner with dessert first. Yum! This dessert looked so pretty I just had to take a picture.

Tons of prizes given away and Margie was the MC. So super funny! I can't wait to see what Bazzill and Margie come up with in the next release. With Margie on the team I know it will be fantastic. She got her start working with Marti at her store. I loved attending her class then. Her teaching style is a hoot and her creativity is fantastic. You go girl!!!!

Heidi was the keynote speaker to close the event. Very fitting beings that Creative Escape was Heidi's idea. She shared some touching stories and made us all feel good about what we do as paper crafters.

You know it is truly over when you see the bell boys helping every one down to the shipping area. Yes it looks like my good friend Karen and Melanie had a great time again this year. HeHeHeHe. . .

You know "Mr Bazzill" always says, "Ship home the clothes and pack the projects and product.

What a fun six years. It didn't matter if I was working as a volunteer or attending as a student. I loved every minute of this event. Thanks Bazzill crew and Heidi!

Classes begin

Ali Edwards Class

In Ali's class we played with some fun wax, glimmer mist and embossing to make the numbers.
She had some great ideas to journal. I love that she encourages to journal.

This was my favorite class of all. I not only loved Karen's style of teaching but I also love interactive things and this was amazing. I am hoping to get her to teach here at Scrapp'n Savvy.
You all have to meet her. So much fun!!!

A designer from Canada was fun and had some great ideas using masks crayons and distress ink to make these adorable layouts

Thanks Vicki, you did a great job and it was a delight to be in your class.

Friday night extravaganza was designed by Canvas Corp and Heidi set us all in the mood sharing some fantastic Halloween ideas.

I had to finish it that night so Pat and I stayed up until 1:30 AM to finish! Go us!

What a great Friday. Can't wait for more.

Happy Scrapp'n

Off to Creative Escape . . .

It is 4am and mom, dad and I are off to Arizona for the last Creative Escape. This time taking my parents van. Dad just got his truck back from Mississippi and it is running great but he thinks it needs new tires before we take it for another road trip.

In route we stopped at one of mom's favorite places, Wildseed Farms, to stretch our legs. OH MY, this is a very dangerous place. So many fun and pretty things to temp you to open your pocket book. I did find something I could not live without. Bluebonnet seeds. Dad is going to turn the back field into an ideal bluebonnet field for pictures. Yeah for dad. I know the rain has been bad this year but hopefully dad and his dedication to Scrapp'n Savvy will help us keep that fun Texas tradition alive for 2012.

Mom and I both have a hard time with sitting without something to do so yes as soon as the sun was up we were Scrapp'n! Mom made some beautiful layouts for Millie "Q" and I made a Bobunny mini book for a store sample so much fun! Don't you love how mom used her space? Sticking stuff to the window was an awesome idea. She is the best!

Well the music stopped playing when we arrived in Lordsburg New Mexico. The blue van died! Ugh! The alternator went out and there was no place in Lordsburg to fix it. The auto mechanic gave the battery a good charge and said IF you don't run the AC or anything but the engine you MIGHT make it to Deming Arizona 80 miles away. So with a prayer in our hearts we headed for Deming. The blue van died as we pulled into the Auto place. What a blessing. They had us up and going in two hours! YEAH for Mills Auto place!

Arrived at Bazzill just in time to play. Bazzill puts on a to-do-lah for the store owner who attend Creative Escape. Mom and I made some fun projects using all the new Bazzill lines . . .so much fun!

Plus I was given more give-aways for the Scrapp'n Sampler!

Happy Scrapp'n
