WOW!!!

Spent the past three days at Ranger U...what an amazing experience. Three days of creating, meeting new friends and old, and playing with nearly every product Ranger owns! All I can say is WOW!! I have met people that I know will be friends for life! I have played with products that I have fallen in love with it...and I can't wait to start sharing it with you! On my flight home today, I am going to start outlining some new classes incorporating the techniques and products form this weekend. Here are a few photo's from this amazing weekend.

Here are the over 75 techniques we learned during the weekend



Tim and Claudine...the amazing teachers!


The incredible group of fun and talented artists!


This is a gift I made for Tim...a smaller companion piece for the larger vintage-style suitcase I made for his booth at CHA back in January. It is made from a couple of the insert components from his new Configurations tray and a modified version of my Sunburst Album.





As amazing as this experience has been, I am looking forward to heading home to the wonderful hubby and my kids!!

Two of my best scrapping friends together with tons of new ideas - you will probably get a bunch all blurred together and only GOOD new ideas will come of it. Glad you are home safe. Mary Werner

  30. Do you think you'll be teaching(or could teach) a couple classes at Scrapbook Nook that focuses only on the different techniques you learned? I want to dive in and buy a bunch of Tim Holtz' inks, sprays, paints, etc but have no clue what to do with them. Thanks! BTW, Happy Mother's Day!
