I made it back from the Reflections event in California late Monday evening. Boy, was I exhausted after being gone for 5 days ~ but in a totally good way! Seems like you always need a vacation from your vacation! It was everything I had hoped and more. The event was so much fun, so much work, but I loved every minute of it, and Karen and Susan really put their hearts and souls into making every detail amazing. I had the best teacher assistant, Ly, she was awesome. Our first class was a little hairy, but after that I think we managed to get right on track to how we wanted to present the material and Ly was wonderful - so much help, loved her! I am super shy in real life, I think everyone who met me can attest to that, but I think they had fun with the project and techniques. lol When I created the mini album, I really wanted to teach some new ideas and things that nobody had done before, so one of the things I came up with was a new kind of "crocheted" flowers (lovingly we called them "faux-chet"). I'll be posting how to make these soon. Here is the mini that we made. And you can see ALL of the rest of the inside photos HERE in my 2peas gallery.
Katie Watson. She is the sweetest, most down-to-earth person. Very genuine and the kind of friend who would do anything for you! I'm glad we got to room together and get to know each other. I also was also able to meet Kelly Goree and hang out with her - she's a blast. Here we are checking out Newport Beach one day. (I apologize for the quality of the photo, I took my daughter's camera along on my trip! Katie is on the left, Kelly-center, me -right)
Reflections event, you should. There were 3 pools (2 heated), 16 tennis courts, bikes to rent, golfing, etc. Lots, lots more...
This was a once-in-a-lifetime thing for me...so I was very honored to be asked to participate with all of the other amazing scrapbook designers. Thank you, Reflections!!
