Hope you all had an awesome day! I can honestly say I had a blast! I LOVE LOVE LOVE to learn new things and today I did!
This post is pretty picture intense so hang in there.....
As you may know, I've been Dylusioning with the Queen of Dylusion, Dyan Reaveley today! The class started at noon and ran until 5...each minute better than the next! Dyan is an amazingly awesome teacher. Sharing so many cool techniques and a ton of laughs along the way! I don't think I have had this much fun in a long time! Can you tell I'm just over the moon? LOL!
When I arrived at the shop, Whimsodoodle, I was like a pig in mud! Good Lawd, Good Lawd, Good Lawd! This place has TONS and Tons of the latest and greatest! So many cool papers, gadgets, Dylusions Stamps, Inks, and Journals...If Ranger made it, they had it! I don't think I have ever walked into a shop and seen a more complete selection of Sizzix/Tim Holtz dies and Dylusions stamps ever! Yep, Let's just say I was walking on the thin line of bankruptcy! LOL! If you ever get a chance to visit St. Petersburg, Florida...Don't walk....Run to this fabulous store!
So anyway you got that I loved the store right? I had spotted the wall of Idea-ology the night before on my rainy night walk and went directly there as I wanted Tim's new lanterns! Now guess what lovely redheaded Brit I ran into???...You guessed it Lady Dy! Poor thing, I hope her foot is OK! :)
Guess what we got? YES!!! Dyan's New Creative Journal! I was so proud of mine that I took a picture of it! LOL Y'all, the paper in this journal is TO DIE FOR! I mean primo excellento! Got me -o? Grab one friends, grab one! Heck grab several. Now I'm not just saying that because I love Dyan, This is journal is plain old awesome! One Of My New Favorite Things!
Now, it didn't stay this pristine for more than five minutes as we started spraying, and folding pages. But you know, that is where my creative journey begins to give this journal some character!
Here is one of the many things we created in it today...
Here are some class pictures.....
Yes, That would be my arm in the bottom left of the photo! LOL!

Can't say I wan't paying attention! After I ripped the wrong part of the page! LOL! Oh well! As Dyan says, there are no mistakes! We were making art! Oh yeah, the stickers I inherited on my shirt were from the Jimmy John's sandwiches we had for lunch. They say....I Love Jimmy! Perfect! LOL!
Can I say...Toupee anyone? :)
