Good Morning !

Well, what a weekend we had... 5 of us friend all donned our Aprons and arrived bright and early at Emperors Palace on Saturday morning to attend the:

The SCRAPBOOKING DIVA'S (Nutty M, Clauds, Sweet M, Megaree and Tertia)

We had the most amazing teachers again this year:

(Candice Greenway, Jeri Tanner (Bo Bunny), Jodi Sanford (Fancy Pants), Debby Schuh (October Afternoon), Tracie Hudson (Sassafras) and Nic Howard (Prima):

Jodi Sanford presented the most gorgeous layout called "OUR STORY"

As the Cape Town girls haven't done the expo yet, I am just posting "sneak peeks". Will post full photos later.

One of my favorite classes with with Traci Hudson. She is an amazing teacher and the technique was so fun: Layout was called "THIS IS HOW WE ROLL".. so fun and cute

And of course.. who doesn't love PRIMA ? Nic shared her techniques with Flowers, rolling, distressing.. how cool !! Loved this layout:

And of course our highlight of the weekend was Madame {C}, otherwise known as Candice Greenway.. imported directly from Cape Town.. LOL

In true style, Candice had LOTS of cupcake, eye candy (woo hoo) and cupcake recipe books for everyone to win. This is my cupcake I won .. .how cute is this !

In true Madame {C} style, her class was awesome. We were taught techniques, design fundamentals and even a crash course on photo editing. No one ever expects to finish a Candice layout, so hence there is no photo... LOL...

Check out her cute table she had layed out... {Check out PARIS the DUMMY !} ... Love it !!

Another lovely layout was with Jeri Tanner of BO BUNNY. What a fun, amazing, lovely lady ! She had us singing and playing all morning ! Really a fun start to our weekend ! Thanks Jeri !

Her layout was just as fun and lovely as she was...

This year, the CONVENTION decided to host a

in aid of:

On Saturday night, all the ladies bought kits and had to complete a single layout in 2 hours. We were only allowed to use the items in the kit and our tools.

About 250+ ladies attende the challenge and the layouts were FABULOUS.. amazing what girls can do in such a short space of time... seriously impressive.

Out of all these entries, they had 2 winners and 5 honorable mentions.
I was fortunate enough to have my layout receive an "HONORABLE MENTION".. I was so excited to be chosen out of so many wonderful layouts.. a real honor..

Ashley Hayden (of SURVIVOR fame) was present to hand out prizes.. unfortunatley us Honorable mentions didn't win anything, but at least we got the recognition.

The two winners of the Challenge were Tracy Schimper and another lady (sorry didn't get her name).. but here is her winning layout.... She really deserved to win ... I just loved how she got all this done is only 2 hours ! Amazing:

All in all, the CONVENTION was another wonderful, successful one and I really want to thank Glenda, the teachers and all the helpers for another AMAZING event !

Now to start saving for Tim Holtz in April....

Have a good week.

Hugs, Mich
