You could say…

… that I am knee-deep in scrabpooking project right now

…. or that I am up to my eyeballs in it (but in a good way) :) 

The Reflections Event was an absolute blast! I truly love that event and told all of my students that I will keep going back as long as Karen and Susan will have me! My classes were all so laid back and we actually had some serious relaxation and "get-to-know" you time, all while they were putting together the mini album I created! Thanks for being so fabulous everyone!

I also got to have some serious girls' time with my cute and hilarious friends Suzy Plantamura, Elizabeth Kartchner, Kelly Purkey and Kelly Goree! I could hang out with these girls every day!! Just wish we lived closer. The other teachers – Debee Campos, Danielle Flanders and Katie Watson – were all equally as cute and sweet… we just didn't get to hang out as much because of the ways our schedules matched up. My only regret is that I wish I could have been a student so I could take all of their classes and do all of their projects!!

Heading to Preview Day for Creative Escape tomorrow…

I have been working on my project/presentation for so long now… truly pouring my heart and soul into it! So it will be exciting to teach it for the first time. Preview Day is sort of a practice run where we all teach our classes to the other teachers and the volunteers for the event. And you know what is so fun about it?? I do get to take all the classes from the other teachers!! 

As I have been gathering all of my supplies and packing up my scrapbooking tools, etc to go tomorrow I realized that I have never been a student at an event like this. It will be refreshing to sit on the other side of the table and learn from and be inspired by the seriously talented line-up of teachers!! Now if I can just get to bed so I can wake up in the morning and get there on time! 🙂

And finally I had to pop in and share this Studio Calico news with you… 




 ….Yes, some of my most favorite Studio Calico stamps are being retired!! 

Almost brings a tear to my eye… literally! 

I seriously use the Schooltime ABC Border, this Notepaper stamp, this abc border stamp (that I am in love with), and this pinked circle stamp ALL the time!! 

(Well I was going to share some layouts using these stamps but for some reason they aren't uploading… so you will just have to believe me I guess! 🙂 Or you can check back through prior issues of Creating Keepsakes Magazine to find some samples!)

 I also adore the pinwheel, frame and silhouette ones too! Oh my, I think they are retiring all of my faves! How can this be?? 🙂

If you don't already have these then you should literally run on over here and get them before they are gone! When they are gone, they are gone!! I think I may just have to buy extras in case mine ever wear out. I love them that much!

P.S. While you are there be sure to check out the sneak peek for next month's kits. I am in LOVE! Lots of things to make pages for my boys with just enough pink and girlie touches to do some layouts for Emily too!! It's a perfect mix I think!

P.P.S. I promise I will be back to share my full Studio Calico layouts from the past couple of months. I know I have been slacking in that area… I've just been so busy getting ready for Reflections and Creative Escape! Have a great weekend everyone!

    I really, really enjoyed your class both times at Reflections and I hope you come back again. I am almost done with my Home Sweet Home book and I absolutely LOVE it…thank you for putting together such a wonderful project and for sparking my creative juices again (I felt like I was in a rut for a while). I am so excited to finish this book! Have a great weekend, Maggie! 🙂
