The juicy details

So here they are. The juicy details of my class with Ali Edwards. It was awesome, amazing and so very freakin' cool. First let me start with the book signing where when I asked her to sign a copy of Elizabeth's book, she knew who Elizabeth was :)
She is so laid back, yet has so much energy. One of those people who Rachel, Missy, Shelly (make sure you click on her link 'cause she just did the COOLEST elsie there :) and I all thought "wow, we could be friends with her."

The class was to make a 4x4 MM tag book based on yesterday, today and tomorrow. I will try to get some scans of my book soon, but let's just say she had us emboss the cover then ink the negative space for a very cool effect. That really brought me back to my scrappy roots as I started this obsession way back in 1995 with embossing when gold, silver and black were your only choice. Let me tell you, when COPPER came out, I thought I would have a heart attack! Anyway, the class was very cool, learned some new things, but I think more importantly was inspired. To journal, to create, to well, clean my very messy craft room which is why I have been a bit late in posting this. The best part? Sure I was inpired by Ali. She is amazing and definately deserves to do what she gets to do, but I was really inspired by my girls. Mis, Rach, and Shelly. So nice to scrap with them. Share ideas, stories, laughs and odd pictures. So thanks girls. Would not have been the same without you. So, would you like to see some pictures now?
