My scrappy present from my wonderful hubby!

Monday, December 22, 2008

First I'd like to thank all of you that left comments on my post yesterday about my pictures. It meant so much to me that you all were SO supportive and I really and truly appreciate that you even visit my blog. I was very humbled when I received an email from someone offering to have their husband help me get my pictures back. We did get them back and I burned them all to disc. i still can not get my HP photo printer to reload back onto the computer but I am sure I will get it all solved. So a very BIG thank you to all of you out there that read my blog!!!!
This weekend I traveled to Chino for a Masters class at Prima Marketing Inc. My sweet and wonderful hubby gave me this class for Christmas. Thanks babe! It took me only about 45 mins to get there which was nice for future classes! This class was about a mini album and was taught by Adrienne Looman. She was really sweet and so very talented!
Here's my album, I chose to use pics from Lily's birthday party with our friends and Douglas Park in Santa Monica.

Mom and Lily, those fingers!
I really enjoyed creating the book, I used paint and white card stock as my base as Adrienne suggested and then I chose to distress alot thru out the book. She pointed out with the Say it In Crystals that you can stretch your dollar by making the crystals go further by cutting some of the flourishes off and using them more than once. A great tip!

Here's a couple shots of the classroom

I had so much fun. The ladies I met were super classy and sweet. We were totally spoiled with access to extras we needed to make our books. Lots and lots of scrappy flowers, ribbon, pop dots and food!!! Notice my oatmeal cookie and my wallet out ready to shop!!!
Here's what I came home with !!!

I had such a blast! I am totally looking forward to my next class, after all my birthday is just around the corner in March and this year's gift will be a snap for DH!
It was so nice meeting everyone at the workshop and Adrienne! Check out her blog, OMG she's an amazing photographer!
We're off to see Santa today since DH got home early so enjoy your day whatever you do.
