connecting with retailers (thank goodness for local scrapbook store owners) and learning and exchanging ideas and brainstorming solutions and really enjoying myself. Nancy and Stephanie are here from FISKARS and Layle from Scenic Route and so many more. Got to do a 2 minute spot with Allison Orthner on local City TV (never quite get those right — oh well!)
After my first class, I was browsing the display tables and chatting with Layle. She told me about taking a fabulous class online with Shimelle and being inspired to create these NEW extremely cool, covered chipboard albums (read all about it here) Anyway, I’m in love. Talk about easy! Simple is working on a special issue "Mini Albums in an Evening" and this album will be featured — because I’m pretty sure you could really create something quite cool in one sitting.
On a bit of a whim, I decided to spend the afternoon with George (Fiskars Craft in Canada) and Nancy and Stephanie — we headed to Banff to take in some quick sites and just explore a little. It’s so refreshing, when I can return home from a venue and talk of seeing something beyond the hotel lobby …
