Three weeks today!!!

Yuppers--I'll be setting sail for the beautiful Caribbean with all the wonderful croppers on the Crop and Cruise!!  Time has really flown by and we are getting down to the wire in all the last minute preparations!  The cruise has been kinda like a wedding for me--you set the date, buy your dress and secure all the important "people" early and wait.  A few details here and there, but you wait with huge excitement building. THEN---wham!!  tons of details to sort out and finishing touches to put on in the last few weeks!  and then---the honeymoon!!! 
This has been such an incredible journey for me and it is in huge to the amazing team I have had the opportunity to work with--Allison Orthner (boss extraordinaire!), Trisha Ladouceur, Leica Forrest and Jill Hildebrand!  Thanks for all your support and making this experience so much fun--now lets Honeymoon!!  
(I'll try and get some sneak peeks of the projects up soon!)  
oh--an there is still 2 spots left:)  ya know ya wanna!!

So I taught an awesome class today is Coquitlam--It's so nice to see everyone and you all rocked it out today!!  I had so much fun!  
For those not in the class, I showed a sneak peek of my new class (mar/apr schedule) at Clipper Street.  I'll be teaching this class in Coquitlam on Apr 4 and in the Langley store on Mar 23 and Apr 25.  These dates have NOT been posted yet, but you can register now and get in before the rush--all my classes in Jan and Feb have sold out, so don't miss out!  Here's one of the cards (I'll post the other one soon)

This class is called "SUGAR AND SPICE"  and everything nice, that's what these cards are made of!!  This card features BRAND NEW My Minds Eye papers from their Bloom and Grow line!!  Aren't they yummy!

We are also going to be using the gorgeous Glimmer Mists on our Prima flowers--isn't it beautiful! This one is Tiger Lily!  (click on the picture to see a close up of the glimmer!)

Now I promised my students that were in my class today a little giveaway! Leave a comment and answer the question and I'll do a random draw for a special little goody bag for one lucky winner.  I can either send it to the Coquitlam store or the Langley store for you to pickup! I'll draw on Wednesday evening from all comments left--don't forget to leave your name:)  Check back then to see if you are a winner!
Here's the question--What is MY favourite Ice Cream??
Thanks all--I look forward to hearing from you and Good Luck!

Off to San Jose!

Wow has it ever been a crazy past few weeks!  
This has to be a super quick post as we are heading to San Jose first thing in the morning for the big NARCh tournament--that's Roller Hockey!  Aaron is playing in the Bantam division for the West Coast Warriors and we are all super excited to be heading down for some awesome hockey, good weather and even a day of sightseeing;)  and of course...SHOPPING!

Before I go though--I did promise some of my students a picture of a variation of one of the cards I taught!  We had a great class on Monday--have I said how much I love my students?  They really are an extension of my life and family.  Anyway, I taught this fun card using Prima's Viola diecut felt and Kaiser Craft paper.  I love the color combo!

Now the original is just as cool and uses the Basic Grey line, Ambrosia.  LOVE this color combo--yummy!!!  

So which do you like better?

Well I better get packing--still not done and we leave in 7 hours and somewhere I need to sleep too:)  
Also--check out the crop and cruise blog--awesome stuff that will get you soooooo EXCITED!!! Can't wait and I'll fill you in on more delicious details when I get back!!
