The Convention

The Scrapbook Convention came and went way too fast. Now it feels like I only dreamt it! Luckily I have some photo evidence to proof that I was really there - and that Tim Holtz was really there too! :)
He is such a sweet guy and sooooooo talented. I love his grungy way of scrapping and altering stuff. His products are so innovative – a clever twist on all the old stuff.

This is the mini album that I made in his class.
We also had another class presented by Jayme Shepherd from Making Memories. I love MM products and they were soooo generous. I took home LOTS of stuff to play with.

Best part of the day was that I got to spend it with my bestest friend in the world – Tanya! Unfortunately I don’t have the photo of the two of us on my flash disc at the moment so I will have to add it later.

On the home front things are looking good. They only need to paint the roof and do a little bit here and there – then all the building will be complete.

Thereafter we still need to build the pool and re-do the old bathrooms in the house. Don’t know if I can go through another mess in my house but I guess I’ll just have to bite the bullet. I will cross that bridge when I get to it though!

I’ve been reprimanded about the lack of posts on my blog by a couple of people – including a lurker on my blog that I met at the convention (hello Elzanna ;o) I will really try to be a better blogger. I don’t even have time these days to read my favourite blogs but I promise to try to post at least once a week.

In the meantime – whatever you do - have fun!
