I had photocopied some of my own backgrounds so the ladies could stamp an image of a face and then add a masonite crown. The crowns were a huge hit.
So thanks to Mike at Coffee Break for designing those elevated box kits, and to Vijay and Kelly for the wooden beads & shapes, and to everyone for coming to play with me again!! You were all fabulous.

Over the years as I continue to travel and teach I'm still fanatical about creating backgrounds, and my classes for those techniques continue to draw a wide variety of students. This year's class in Cincinnati was no different.
I love showing others how to add new things to their creativity like needlepoint rounds and dry wall tape, but some of those old tried & true tools like the Magic Stamp delight as much today as they did a decade ago.
We had a lot of fun in this class, with lots of laughter. No surprise there. If you were in attendance, thank you ever so much for coming to play with me. And if you missed it, look for my name on next year's schedule and sign up to see what all the fuss is about.

Here's a sample of her tags from the demo:
And just so you don't think I spent all my time inside, here are some photos we took last Friday while strolling through Millenium Park in downtown Chicago.
I still haven't unpacked those 6 suitcases. Gotta get a move on. I fly to Nashville on Sunday and then on to Cincinnati a week from tomorrow. YIKES!!

Summer CHA in Chicago has come and gone, and I've survived another whirlwind trip. The temperatures most of the week were in the 80's; a nice respite from the 100+ I left behind in NC.
There was so much more, including my workshop and my mini classes for Clearsnap. I didn't take a single photo, so I should be shot. But they did have someone filming my two mini classes in their booth, along with a quick how-to technique segment between the classes. As soon as I know where you can find them, I'll post and let you know.
I've got six suitcases to unpack so check back later. Lots of show and tell still to come...
