Hello and a happy Friday to you! Yay another week is done and its WEEKEND TIME! Well it will be for me if I get all my work done in a timely manner today so I can enjoy the weekend with my family LOL! I must say I am BEAT as I’m writing this post (the nite before) that I can barely see the laptop—yikes, so I apologize if it sounds wonky or is spelled funny. We had a great turn-out for the new BookEndz Group at the CMC Classroom yesterday for the Kick-Off Party---woweeee! If you didn’t get a chance to stop by you still can and enter the challenges---you have until Aug. 4th to do so and the GRAND PRIZE is a new KINDLE! Also I revealed the book we will be reading which is “Snow Flower & the Secret Fan” by Lisa See---it is a wonderful book about the power of friendship between two women. I enjoyed it soooo very much when I was a the beach and I knew instantly that it would be fantastic for the Book Club! We ended things with a LIVE CHAT last night and those GALS (all 68 of them) were CRAZY LOL—crazier than me, how can that be. If you’ve never been to a chat at the CMC Classroom you need to come to one, always fun, fast paced and informative but you gotta have your fingers ready to fly cuz’ it goes FAST! And when we have a party with prizes its even CRAZIER---I think ‘dem gals were sniffing too many Copics last night I tell ya, whoooo eeeeee LOL! Me I was just having fun and drinking Cherry Coke trying to keep up
Anyone going to the Southern Women’s Craft and CHA Supershow in September in Charlotte, NC? I will be there with my good gal-pal Pat Jaynes on Thursday and Friday so if you will be there give me a holler. I’d love to see/meet you! After that I will be in Kansas City teaching and then onto Ohio, possibly San Jose, San Diego and finishing in Vegas and maybe Texas! Yep I have a very CRAZY FALL schedule ahead of me before I stop traveling in mid-November to take off for the holidays. But you can see the upcoming locations for my Copic Classes at www.cmcroad.com and I will have it updated late next week with all the new spots!
Isn’t she a cutie? I love her and her name is “Purse Peeker”---I love purses and I love shoes so I had to use her FIRST LOL! I paper pieced the purse to match the background papers (ooh I’d love a bag like that) and then colored the purse handle with Copics & used Diamond Glaze on the handle to make it pop more. The papers are NEW and by “Lily Bee Designs"--love gingham and love red and aqua together! The mats around the image are SB’s “Lacey Circles” one of my go-to fave nestabilities. The gingham border was done with my MS border punch and then I matted it on the shimmery white cs to make it pop. Bow was done with Bow Easy and then topped with some matching Prima flowers!
She was colored with Copics R29,R24,R22,R20 / BG04,BG02,BG000 /E11,E00 / E37,E31,E50,YR20. I added Diamond Glaze to her headband and bracelet as well and then some stickles on the coins and rose for bling!
