*What a Weekend*

I survived my first Calgary Classic! For those who asked, the Calgary Classic is a now annual event organized by a couple of ladies (hi Adelee and Christine) from Splitcoast Stampers (go to the Forum, and then find "Get It Together). I think the numbers were a little lower this year than last simply because Stampin' Up Regionals were being held in Edmonton (only 3 hours away) on the same weekend.

I went with six other fantastic ladies -- Crystal, Diane, Linda, Merlie, Shannon and Tracy. (check out the blogs of Merlie, Shannon and Tracy linked in my side bar). We did a lot of laughing and a little creating.

As I've said before, I don't craft well away from home so I was a little worried about the weekend. I gave myself a goal of completing 10 cards.... and I did it!!! I was so thrilled! I also decorated my name tag (it was a contest). Go me!

I look forward to spending a weekend crafting and laughing with friends again!

This card is one of the cards for my November Christmas Card Class at the Scrapbook Pantry. The students will each be going home with this ultra-cute little snowman stamp by Imaginisce.

I had a comment asking about the Ikea storage solution for my Copics. Shannon and I combed through Ikea looking for these awesome square tin containers on Friday but there were none to be found.... we think that they must have been a summer item (planters). Sigh. I'm still on the hunt, but for now I have put 144 of my markers in colour family in numerical order in my two 72 marker cases... and I have a bunch of Es in a basket next to it. Not ideal, but it will work for now.

I am off.... enjoy your day!
