My Crafty Dreams...

have come true....That's right, I finally was the opportunity to take a class with Tim!!  Tim...sigh...my crafty crush.  Not only do I love Tim's style but I'm continually amazed by his level of creativity.  And it turns out that he is not only a great instructor but has a fantastic sense of humor.  He had the entire classroom laughing out loud numerous times.  It was such a memorable and fun experience! 
I attended the class with a few ladies that I've become friends with since working at Wholly Scrap!  The craft industry is seriously the most amazing industry out there.  It's such a treat to work with and around such creative and inspiring women (and a few men!)
Here's our classroom (the classes were held at Absolutely Everything), about 85 women attending a five hour class.  I thought I would be exhausted after five hours of creating but I honestly had a hard time leaving.  I was considering trying to sneak out to dinner with Tim and his friends but I was concerned that they would call security on the crazy stalker! LOL!
Here's the almost finished piece.  Each of those squares in a piece of grungeboard that has either been embossed, painted, stamped, sanded, etc.  Tim walked us through a bunch of techniques and I'm pretty sure we used every Ranger product available!  Not only is this a great piece of art but it serves as a reminder of techniques that we can use on future projects.

Ahhh....such a great time...
