If Only I Had Eight Arms......

Tonight I am completely multitasking. Trying to finish up some pages for a circle journal, get some paper work done for the house, getting ready for the dentist tomorrow (ouch!), experimenting with some Prima Hybrid stuff and writing this blog entry. Phew! All that and I am ready for bed. Sometimes I wonder why there aren't more hours in the day. I feel like I have so much to accomplish and never enough time.

I guess when life gets like that, you just hunker down.

But I gotta tell you. I am very excited to tell you that I am doing more teaching! Yes, I am very excited about it. I am going to be at a retreat hosted by Pages in Time in Stettler, Alberta on April 16th!

I went and visited and got to know the ladies and I am thrilled to be working with them. My class will be playing with clear Pageframes products and showing you great techniques and tricks to get the best results.

And speaking of clear, I am finally posting my wall hanging I did for Trisha Ladouceur's the Winter issue of Canadian Scrapbooker. I am particularly excited to post this because it is very well one of my all time favorite creations! I was completely stretched creatively to do this piece and I love the results.

Large and medium Star and Circular Acetate bases: Picture It Pageframes
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey - Color Me Silly
Transparencies: Hambly Screen Prints, Hi gauge acetate sheet (craft supply)
Stamps: Gelatins - You Spin Me 'Round
Ink: Staz On in Jet Black (Tsukineiko)
Acrylic Paint - Making Memories
Black Grossgrain Ribbon: Burwick Offray
Chipboard Letters: Heidi Swapp - Center of Attention
Chipboard Arrow and Star Photo Corner: Fancy Pants
Rub-ons: Fancy Pants (stripes on word "cool"), Hambly Screen Prints (swirls), K & Co. - Transfers on the Go ("Wild Thing" on medium star)
Adhesive: Small Glue Dots

And yes continuing on...

Again since we are talking about Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine, I am excited to get my hands on the new spring issue! Yay!

First off, I am excited to tell you that I made one of the two takes of the cover! Didn't quite make the final cut but none the less, i say I done not too shabby!

And make sure that you check out the article on scrapbooking your baby by the fabulous Cari Locken (who I will be teaching with in May at Scrapbook Your Heart in Caroline, Alberta) and the stamping article by the most talented stamper extordinaire, Cathie Allen.

So happy and lucky to be in such good company when I end up in Canadian Scrapbooker. Jackie and Katherina, great job!
