Tales From Scrapfest 2010

Pin It!

My Tim Bookends: My Darling Husband Tim, Me, & the Creative Genius TimTim & IMe & MarioWell I made it home safe and sound from Scrapfest in Minnesota. It was my first time to go, my wonderful husband brought me for my birthday. I was especially excited because it was held at the Mall of America. I've been to the MOA before because my son, Nick, who's a 3rd degree black belt in Karate goes there every year for a competition. But now that he is older he goes by himself so I kind of missed my tax free clothes shopping.

Tim, the best husband ever, holding all my clothes while I shopped. He said he never spent four days at the mall before much less drove 7 hours to do it. LOL. He is such a sweetie he carried my bag between classes and sat in the hall reading his book while I while I went about my shopping and crafting. I love him so much. And no I won't rent him out.
Well, it was great fun I took a total of 8 classes including Tim Holtz's. His was my first class and of course my favorite, he had a great gift for everyone too, the new Christmas texture plates that won't be released for sale till next month and package of the flourish grunge board. I had Tim sign my texture plates and my inventory book. I learned quite a few things in my classes but most of the classes were quite rushed (they were only 45 min. long) I am used to the 2 hour classes at the Scrapbook Expo. I was finishing some of the projects in the hotel and on the drive home and have quite a few to still complete. I will post them in the next few days so stay tuned.

I was also able to meet up with quite a few friends that I have met through my blog which was so nice. It's always so nice to be able to put a face to a name and the kind words that are passed. I was able to make some new friends too. I am convinced that scrappers are the nicest, sweetest people! And when you put a couple thousand of them together you are bound to have a great time!
I love Tim's little box he keeps all his metal trinkets in. So cool, he found it at a flea market. It's like a mini Caboodle. Lovin' it! I watched his demo and learned lots of great tips...did you know that you can cut your metal charms with his red handled scissors. You can!
Here's some more inspiration for you...
I will post the projects I made in the next few days.
