June Class Layouts

I used Basic Grey's Kioshi line to create these layouts. The first is my take on a Becky Fleck class I took at GASC earlier this month. The flowers were created from white tissue paper and Glimmer Misted.

The second layout is also a Becky Fleck layout -from June's PageMaps. I cut out the butterflies out of white cardstock on my Cricut using Make the Cut software, then ran them through the Texture Boutique, then finally, Glimmer Misted them.

We had a great time creating these beautiful layouts. You can order supplies to make your own by contacting me (I am placing a group order on Wednesday of this week). And if you'd like to learn more about using Glimmer Mist, be sure to sign up for My Crop Camp, as I will be doing a very technique-based class using it then!

July MW Express Kit

This time last year, hubby and I were getting packed and ready for our cruise, and the memory of that makes me long to pull out my cruise pics and scrapbook away.

GASC Report

Oh my! I'm just back from two wonderful days at GASC (Great American Scrapbook Convention) in Arlington, Texas, and did I have the time of my life!

Some highlights:

Took two fabulous classes with one of my scrapbooking heroes, Becky Fleck! THE author of PageMaps, and soon-to-be released PageMaps 2, as well as the creative genius behind the PageMaps website. I tell ya, I don't know how this lady manages to crank out all those maps on a monthly basis AND manage 1200 head of cattle on her ranch in Montana. The classes were absolutely to die for, and I found her delightful as an instructor.

Hit the showroom floor for some serious SHOPPING. Have you ever seen so much scrappy goodness all in one room? We're talking wall to wall. I scored some good stuff at great prices - some of which will be showing up at some future events. Nope, can't tell'll just have to wait and find out!

Got to see T!m Holtz in action. Mind you, I wanted to pull up a chair and chat with him about life and such, but the man was BUSY! I'm not sure if he took any breaks at all throughout the entire show. Great guy, with a true artist's heart.

Ate convention food favorites - a burrito one night and baked potato the next. YUMMY!

Entered a dance contest at the crop with my bff. We wowed the crowd with our funky moves, such as The Bump, The Twist, The Swim, The YMCA, and The Robot. We even surprised them with an impromptu Conga line. We handily took second place.

Then it was time to pack up and head home, to pine away for next year's convention. Till then...Adios, Texas!
