You Missed Out {BIG) Time

For all of you who decided not to attend the Scrapbookex International Conference, all I can say is that you missed out BIG TIME...

Jacqui picked me up on route from PMB and drove us to Riverside Conference Centre where we were greeted with yummy muffins and coffee.

What can I say, she had to go to extremes to impress Tim, yes Tracy I think the PINK streaks might just catch his eye...hehehe

Moi & Tracy

Sam & Jacqui

Natalie & Jenny

On walking into our conference room, all I could say was WOW, it looked beautiful with all the butterfly goody bags on the tables...too pretty.

The goody bags were loaded with delicious goodies...as you can see in my picture below.

Papers to complete a LO to enter into a competition. Another complete kit with all the trimmings to make a double page LO, designed by yours truly...GLENDA (Girl, you LO is gorgeous)!!! A beautiful Heidi Swapp album. Scrapbook Trend & Imagine mags. Voucher from Scrapbook House and many more...

The day started with Jayme Shepard from Making Memories, she is super cute and preggos (baby due in September). She is so excited as it is a girl and he already has 2 boys.

How cute is Jayme...check that sweet apron, love it!

We were shown how to use the packaging from our brads to make a mini album, which I thought was a super cute idea and so great for recycling your products.

After a delicious tea, we got another kit...yummy, yum yum and we created 2 more LOs, will post mine when completed. I really loved the LOs and still have loads left for more pages etc.

Then it was time for lunch and it was delicious and there was still lots left, that Tracy had seconds...naughty, naughty...lol

After lunch it was time to spend the afternoon with Tim Holtz and be blown away by his magic. That he sure did...I learnt so many new techniques and how to use his wonderful product...this man really knows his stuff and is passionate about it. I think he has the best job in the world...I must say he is also very entertaining...

My Timmy moment...anybody jealous yet?

To top it all I got down and dirty and did not even wear my gloves, it was great working with all that cool medium with your fingers...I was in heaven!

Some girls wore their gloves, what can I say! Any guesses who that BLING ring belongs to?

im got us decorating a mini Grunge album, love mine so far, even though it is far from completion...yes Tracy, I gave it another sniff....got to love that smell! He got us modging; sticking; sanding; blending, distressing...you name it we did it!!! He sure had us going non stop...

Also, I won a Tim Holtz Kit to the value of R700.00...woohoo!!!

All I can say, I had a TOTALLY AWESOME & AMAZING DAY...

Thanks to Glenda and her wonderful staff and to my friends for joining me on this fun day...

P.S. Can I give you a hint...{2 days; Joburg; international teachers; casino; scrapbooking;September}...any ideas?
