I'm Not Weird, I'm Limited Edition!

My new saying!  Yes, you read it here first. Yesterday was a great deal of fun.  Creative time with the fabulous creative scrapbooker's from The Scrapbook Village!  There we several classes and everyone participates by round robin style.  It was great fun.  I enjoyed getting to know other scrapbooker's and having wonderful creative conversations.  I really love Bonnie and Janett.  I love shopping and now I have a new obsession (will save that for another post).   Several classes and while I enjoy the classes I have a hard time following the exact design.  Not out of disrespect for the instructor or the designer of the class, but because I kind of scrap to my own creative flow.  I love taking the product and making my own take on the class.  Let's see...there was Ken Oliver from Unibind that showcased the Unibind and how one can create their own photo book, scrapbook, creative journal, etc.  He was my first class and my last class featured the Pinky (Cristal) Hobbs and the I-Rock Tool.  Pinky's hair is fabulous and she has an infectious laugh.  Overall, this was a great day and as always, Bonnie and Janett are wonderful hostesses.  Be sure to check out their website as this summer proves to be busy in Glasgow, Kentucky!  Coming in the Fall, I will be guest designing, "Technique Surprises."  More on that later...

So without further ado, here is some scrappy goodness!

 From Pinky's Class----Notice the I-Rock, Rocks?  This class was about the technique of using them.  Fabulous papers and I created this card with the papers supplied.

Same with this class, it was a two page layout class with a flower technique.  I did not create the two page layout but enjoyed playing with the papers.  I plan making a layout with the papers supplied and of course, creating the fab flowers that Lil' Bonnie showed everyone to make.

Yes, another BICYCLE LAYOUT!  I have to finish those photos.  So, this is what I created while gabbing with Wendy.   Wendy is from Australia and she schedules her "American Vacations" around activities happening with Scrapbook Village.  How cool is this?!  She has been doing this for several years.  She and I have began a new friendship that I see lasting for many more years to come.

This is the layout I made while chatting with Ken Oliver.  We got caught up on the "WORLD OF SCRAP" gossip and such.  It was great to talk it up to a fellow Atlantan.  We plan on hooking up at future events for sure.  Our talk was about CHA Summer in Chicago and the Scrapbook World as a whole.  Funny how small this circle truly is, huh?

Well, anyhoo...I have to get in here and rearrange my art studio.  I feel a Spring Cleaning coming on as my children from Atlanta are coming into town for the Memorial Day weekend and one of them will be using my studio as a bedroom.  Do not snicker, it is the most favorite room in the house.  It's simply fab!  I will share photos for another day as well.  I have to keep you all in suspense as I cannot share everything in one post.

I hope you had a great weekend and I am truly am trying to keep my blog moving.  But I must create memories in order to be creative.  Plus, I have to be somewhat of a bohemian enigma anyway.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
