Scrabookbook Expo Chicago 2014

Scrapbook Expo - Chicago came into town last weekend. I was especially thrilled because Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey group had a booth. I know most of them but haven't had the pleasure of meeting the others. What a treat!

During this time, Richard Garay, Vice President of Creative Services for Spellbinders Paper Arts, and Kim Hupke, Director of Education, held two types of classes during the two-day event.

Expression Journal consisted of mixed media and such a FUN CLASS! Here is one of the students, Kim, showing off her creation...

Richard in action! I got his sample and it's displayed in my craft studio :) Thank you, Richard!

The other class was a fabulous card making class that got great reviews afterwards from the students! I love that! Here's Richard and the students in a mad creative frenzy :)

This sweet girlie is Lea from our marketing group. We talk in a weekly marketing conference call so it's nice to meet face-to-face instead of just a voice! LOL!!

And of course, I met up with the uber talented Tiffany Johnson of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft, Sizzix and Lawn Fawn designer!

BONUS: I got to meet another talented designer, Latrice Murphy, who happened to be a volunteer in Spellbinders card making class! LOL! I took a picture of her working hard....she got to play with our Tool 'n One which keeps getting sold out!

So we all had dinner together :) SO MUCH FUN~!!

After one day of class set up, two days of two-hour classes x 4, one-hour make'n take, loading & unloading 30+ Grand Calibur Machines and talking/seeing/hugging/laughing with friends at Scrapbook Expo, this girl was POOPED!! But wouldn't trade it for the world....HA!

Thanks for stopping by!
