Hello my wonderful friends and Happy Monday to you! It's President's Day here in the US so the kids and hubby are home today. I'm not sure what they are up to but I know I have work to do, LOL. We had a bit of a scare here the other night. The winds here got up to 65 mph and wild fires started near Skyline Drive in VA and in multiple places in Maryland. My brother and his family's home was nearby and he evacuated his family but decided to stay (dumb butt brother of mine) to help the firemen. It made me a nervous wreck as the fires were so large and out of control but thankfully while it got close to his house the winds died down and rain moved in. Why do men always have to think they can be a hero? Drives me nuts I tell ya and might make me want to start drinking. My husband would be the same way but I would've bopped him over the head and dragged him outta there that's for sure! We're not used to fires like this out here like those in CA are so it was very unusual and scary for us all. Makes you think every time the wind blows and the ground is dry what can happen. Not to mention I had a house full of 13 yr old boys who were having Nerf fights and playing video games all night---my nerves were very on edge that's for sure. UGH! But its a new day and I've got lots of work planned to do before I leave for San Diego to teach on Wednesday morning.
-NEW LOCATIONS I will be teaching CMC Copic classes at: San Diego this Wednesday, then Florida next week, Phoenix, AZ in April along with Stafford Springs, CT later in April. See all the locations, info and registration info at www.cmcroad.com Come on out cuz' I'd love to meet you!

Congrats and email me your mailing addy so I can get your goodies to you lickety-split!
-Could be a sweet treat in the post below, so read carefully! I will have the winner announced by March 2nd so you have until March 1st to enter!
The first pocket features my all-time favorite "MINI--Secret Tilda" (she's sold out at Magnolia-licious at the moment) hiding a sweet present behind her back. Again I kept all the elements the same thru-out---same papers and colors, punched flowers with pearl centers made with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen in red. The shapes are all by Spellbinders and some were embossed with embossing folders for more texture. The next image is called "MINI-Tilda Brings Flower"--isn't she sweet with her hair buns, I love her!
On the next two pockets I used the sweet "Mini--Princess Tilda" and then "Mini-Jam Tilda" (this one is sold out too, sorry). Aren't these mini's so sweet and so much fun to color! There are 100's of ways to use these Mini's so I hope you give them a try!
