Calgary FUN!

Yes, I'm still here....well not really "here". I am still on my "Alberta Run" of copic delight! I have been having a blast meeting so many people and spreading my coloring passion to all in my path. How fun is that?!!!!
Calgary being my old high school stomping grounds was particularly fun. I was able to show my kids around the sites of my childhood.
The weather has been FABULOUS...we had a great time at the Calgary Zoo!
Here are a couple of shots from the certification.....

I was able to meet the extremely talented Amy R. and Julie B! They were so fun to have in the class and filled me in on the big shopping extravaganza event happening in Calgary. They just opened a new "MEGA MALL" out here, yes, calgarians are serious about their shopping...(much to my daughter's delight!). Thanks girls for coming, it was such a treat to meet you!

Another wonderful attendee....the fabulous Laura F! Laura and I both served on the DD together so it was especially wonderful to meet her!

I was so blessed to teach card class at two FABULOUS scrapbook stores. I taught 2 card classes at Scrapbookers Paradise (where the certification was held) and had a fantastic time meeting their staff and customers! Thanks to Leslie and Sandy who made my time so wonderful!

This card is from the great team at Scrapbook Pantry! I had the privilege of teaching 3 classes in their location. Crystal and Shannon were awesome and helped me so much in the setting up and taking down of my classes. Thanks girls! Would you look at the fabulous "FADING AWAY TO WHITE" work done on this card....the gray grounding is wonderful!

I am now sitting in Edmonton. The family taking in the Edmonton mall yesterday. Thunder and Lightning show in the evening....perfect timing as an ACDC concert was being held at Commonwealth stadium. We were LUCKY to find a hotel room! It was a little scary of a hotel but at least it had a bed and we weren't sleeping in the car!
We are hitting the waterpark and more fun as I gear up for Saturday for another certification.

Ahhh, what a ride!

I am so sad I missed your classes. I had no idea you were going to be here teaching. Are you planning on coming back again soon?? I would love to attend your next class!

Am sad that I couldn't get away to come say "HI" and meet some of the fantastic ladies! I hear the classes at the Pantry were *awesome*!

Judging by the FUN time I had in Calgary, I can see myself coming back soon!

Glad to hear that you're having such a great time! Thanks for the Bday wishes-we're without a phone/sending email until Sept 3rd (Telus screw-up:(, so the message was perfect!

It was so fun to meet you and attend your fabulous class! I sure hope you do make it back again...I'd even take your class over! Have fun in Edmonton!

Shannon said...

It was a pleasure to have you at The Pantry with us. I'm so excited to be certified now and figured out a few of the things that weren't working for me. Nancy couldn't get away to say 'Hi' as she was Hailey's babysitter all day Monday for me! Now I need to find some time to color and blog again!

The class was great Sherrie and it was fab to meet you!!

That mall was AWESOME - we only got 4 hours there after the class before it closed - I already told my hubby we'll have to make a trip back next year when they finish phase 2 LOL ;)
