BC’s Creative Expo

Yippie, it’s Thursday! What a busy past weekend I had; been meaning to blog about my experience at the Creative Expo, but was preoccupied for Whimsie Doodle’s Hope Fights Launch (she’s free until tomorrow and after that, all proceeds from sales will go towards breast cancer research).

I just wanted to thank all the ladies I got to meet at the event. This is the second time I’ve been and I can’t even contain my excitement for next year’s event! It was tiring because I was there from 9am to 9pm on October 17, but it was so worth it.

Here are the highlights of my day:

This project was from Trisha Ladouceur’s Tattered Angels class

I was able to grab a photo with Trisha at the end of the day and oh boy, we were both exhausted! Thanks for the good laughs and stories you shared.

My next class was a Vintage Christmas box and cards with Vicki Chrisman and assisting Vicki was Sandy Redburn, the owner of Crafty Secrets. No joke, Vicki talks exactly like she types! She’s so charming and sweet. She’s dedicated as well – she had a post up the day after the Expo! It was nice to meet you, my American Crunchie loving friend. 😉

To end the night, I took a class with Vicki Boutin. I’ve always enjoyed browsing Vicki’s blog and seeing her bright layouts and cards. I also got to meet her sweet mom who helps out each and every show. Thanks for making it through to the last class, Vicki – with a cold and all!

I also dropped a quick hello to my friend Lisa Strahl who happened to be teaching in the room next door.

What I learned from this day was that I just need to get in there with my hands and get messy; the outcome is beautiful. Thanks again to everyone who shared their ideas and laughs.
