It Was A ScrapFest!

I've just returned home from a wonderful weekend in Oshawa, Ontario, teaching classes at ScrapFest.

Here are my layouts from my "Double the Fun" sketch class, sponsored by Fancy Pants Designs...
Featuring the "Swagger" collection
Featuring "What A Wonderful Day" collection
Featuring "Memories Captured" collection
The class photo....
And my lovely assistant, Tara...
Thank you to all....Fancy Pants Designs for sponsoring my class and donating door prizes....everyone who attended...and Tara was awesome and worked so hard cleaning and scraping embossing powder off my ridiculously messy non-stick craft mats!

I also taught a class called "From Simple to Sensational" featuring Kaisercraft papers.  First, we created a simpler, masculine double layout...
...and then a more advanced shabby chic layout with lots of techniques...
Here is a pic of the wonderful ladies in this class and my sweet and helpful Assistant, Cory-Lynn...

I'll tell you all about the third class, along with some exciting news later next week!

All of you scrapbookers in Ontario are so lucky to be able to attend ScrapFest, where you can crop, shop and take classes for two glorious days.
Lisa (above right) and Sandra & Crew organize an amazing event, and it is an instructor's dream to teach classes there. 

My flight partner and fun-loving roommate was Cathie Allan, who wore many hats as instructor, booth worker and Technique Taster teacher / caped crusader.
Cathie can put a smile on anyone's face !

Karen Ellis and her daughter Emily were busy bees setting up and working in the Canadian Scrapbooker booth.  Karen also taught Technique Tasters and thrilled everyone with her artistry and lively lessons.

I didn't get to spend much time at all in the booth because I was mostly in the classroom. But I know that Karen and Cathie definitely had "fun" together! 

It's impossible not to have fun at ScrapFest!  I enjoyed meeting everyone and hope to have the opportunity to attend again next year!
