Steph and I headed to the airport.
She decided we needed to go in style!
This was my first adventure in a limo.
Somehow I didn't take any pictures (well except of Starbucks) of the trip out.
I guess I was to busy thinking about being there.
I had been looking forward to this trip for a LONG time!
Bright and early Monday morning started off in class with Tim Holtz!
What a great way to start the day, right!
They were still keeping the big secret as to what the new release was though.
No lips let it cross either...uggg....but the excitement continued!
We made two fabulous cards with all things Distress!
Loved it...using them for the Holiday Extravaganza being planned right now for She Scrapbooks!!!
We did four classes that day, but of course no more pictures!
Then went to an amazing dinner that I will talk about in chapter 2.
Let me skip ahead to Wednesday morning.
We were invited to Ranger's VIP morning.
SO FLIPPING EXCITED!
We were able to spend 20 minutes watching Tim, Dyan and Wendy demo the new stuff!
Ask any questions and just have some time with them.
It is so hard to even get to them during show hours.
I like to call it the swarm...they are swarmed from open to close.
Here's me and Dyan...can't wait for her to come back to She!
We are making plans! wink.
Here are some of the displays from the show. LOVED.
Total eye candy!
Finally!!! The introduction of DRY distress glitter.
Oh...you will absolutely LOVE it...
It is VINTAGE Mica and VINTAGE glass glitter all rolled up in one!
I LOVE IT!
Here is a board with all the colors...no justice in the pic...
You really have to see it in person!
Of course I was happy dancing because they did Picked Raspberries!
Last but certainly not least...the new colors of Archival Ink!!
LOVE them as well. These are signature colors for Wendy Vecchi...
She named them all after her love of gardening.
They are amazing...and yes, I will be having them! ALL!!!
Just wait till you see what you can do with her metallic embossing paste
and Archival Ink together! Fabulous!!!
New techniques for Inkology for sure!!!
Will be back with chapter 2 in a bit!
My mind is seriously still on overload! wink.
