A T!m-tastic Saturday !!!

Wow! what a day we had yesterday at the Frenzy Stamper for their 7th Birthday celebrations. Tim Holtz was teaching an all day workshop, a brand new one especially for Debbie's store. We had a wooden curio cabinet to alter and embellish. This was Tim's sample being shown around by Mario, who did a great job as usual with getting everything we needed and helping out in general.
We got to use the fabulous new Tissue Tape that is just shipping to stores, cannot wait to get my hands on some. Also the Lost & Found paper pad, and Tim very generously let us all share his French ledger papers that he got in Paris last year. You cannot imagine the amount of embellishments we had to choose from, we had a long table set up like a buffet, it was so hard to choose but the beauty was we could keep going back if we changed our minds to swap things out.
There was a lot of people who kept swapping items, me included, but the fun thing was how everyone's project turned out so incredible and all so different.
A really nice lunch was provided for us by one of the ladies at the class and there was even a birthday cake and cookies, what more could  you ask for ? I am hoping Tim will be back next year for Debbies 8th birthday celebrations, hint, hint..

The other fun thing was that I took the class with my
very good friend Lisa, in fact she was the one who saw
the announcement about the class and signed us both up,
so glad that she gets up early :)
Lisa and I met a year ago taking a Tim Holtz class at
another store, it is amazing how art can bring people
together, now we are art class buddies and supply buying enablers!
