Getting Inky with Anna Dabrowska

I was so happy to have participated in a Prima Marketing workshop with Anna Dabrowska ,who travelled all the way from Poland, to teach at the Art House Studio in K-W.  We spent several hours getting inky and it was tremendous fun.  Here are some photos from that fabulous day.

The cover I made, with all the mixed media goodness. So many fantastic layers and ink. Love it!

Nadya and I with our inky goodness. Check out Nadya's blog for her beautiful cover.

And my lovely hands afterwards. I took me 2 days with a craft scrubbie to get that stuff off!

This class was so mucih fun. It was interesting to see Anna's process and the ideas we got from just doing that cover alone, was well worth the class. I have 2 pages done for my book which I will post shortly.  I plan on using this album as a document of my mom's life but we'll see. It seems to be speaking to me in that way.

I am so fortunate

To be surrounded by loving people. July I reached my milestone birthday and celebrated it first at the crop at Pointer Scrapbooking.  Lots of lovely cards from the customers and a great cake to share with everyone.

Thanks to Heidi and all the wonderful customers at Pointer's who kicked off my celebrations.

I was then given a great party from my family. And even though the surprise of the party was up(thanks to some forgetful friends), what was a big surprise was the fact that it was 80's themed. Almost everyone showed up in costume - it was awesome!

Love my family and friends!  It has been an awesome birthday!
