Ranger U

Today was the first day of Ranger U. This experience so far has surpassed anything I could have even imagined. First, let me say the women I have met here are extraordinary. There are five of us who met at the airport (after all of us experienced many travel woes) and have become fast friends. I am so thankful that I am sharing this experience with them. They are so sweet, talented and genuine. I feel so very lucky to have found some new friends that I know will be lifelong!

This is how the morning started...with Tim giving us a little welcome speech and insight into what the next three days are going to be all about. The work that goes into this function is truly remarkable. We even got a complete tour of the pics where allowed but believe me it is amazing. Not a detail has been forgotten.
After the tour...we settled back into the classroom and started the day off with Perfect Pearls. I love perfect pearls and own almost all the colors, but now I have new insight and some new techniques to share. The shimmer is just pure yumminess!
Here is a little peek at the technique tags that we made today using Perfect Pearls. The possibilities...let me just say utterly amazed me!
Just a fun picture of some of the stamps we were using. Ranger has this fun wall of stamps and you can just go "shopping" for whatever your heart desires to create with. I need one of these walls in my scraproom! I have a honey-do for my hubby when I get home! He's going to love this, wink.
I couldn't wait to share some of the fun pictures with you from today...hope you enjoyed. I will be updating tomorrow as well. Claudine Hellmuth is teaching first thing in the morning. We saw a little sneaky peek of some of her samples before we left Ranger...looks like it is going to be a lot of painty fun! After lunch we move into my favorite realm...DISTRESS!


  1. Don't you just love scraping people. They're so genuine (for the most part). I've taken classes with Claudine when she lived in FL and she is just the sweetest. I KNOW you had a great day with Tim today. I LOVE the photos you posted, bet hubby can't wait for that "honey do list". Can't wait to see what you post tomorrow!

  2. I am glad you are enjoying yourself. I wish I was there with you. :)

  3. I can't wait for the classes you will teach us!!! Keep all the posts coming Yvonne, we love it! :)
