It was awesome to meet up & chat with super talented people. Poor Vicki Boutin, she was so patient with me though….I had a hard smiling properly after smiling all week-end!

The theme of the Crop was the Sixties….the whole peace & lava lamp thing. It was really cute how people decorated there tables.20110414_905

[Karen & Cathie having some fun!]

I had a chance to do some demos at Karen Ellis's Booth for her store The Art House! That is I tried to do a couple demonstrations, but things were super busy at the Canadian Scrapbooker booth! It was amazing how many awesome people were there, but I really wish that I had a twin that could have helped me cause gee whiz was I tired that evening! I was so happy to meet so many wonderful and talented people! Karen's store and the lovely ladies that helped her were awesome!!!!! You really have to check out her blog at The Art House Studio.

On Saturday I taught a class and it was AWESOME!!!!!

These ladies were super talented and so much fun! Not to mention a couple of them actually knew the small village where I grew up in Ontario when I was little. I couldn't believe it!
