Copic Certified!

Very excited about the class I took today!  I took a Copic marker certification class today and loved it.  I was skeptical to begin with because I needed to know what was so special about the Copics...Now I know...They are AWESOME!  They don't leave lines if done correctly and can be used on almost anything!  I am really looking forward to using them in my paper crafting!

I went to the Memories Scrapbooking Expo with Jen and her fam this weekend.  It was fun!  I have never been to this one before and it was worth it!  I spent way too much money but didn't spend the most.  :)  Lots of new toys to play with including the Pixie Plus sewing machine for paper crafters!

I am super excited about this machine as I have ALWAYS wanted to sew on my layouts.  When I first started scrapbooking, I bought a little sewing machine for $10 and it never worked.  I would get half away across the layout and it would come unthreaded.  This one is geared towards crafters like myself.  I'll have fun playing with it this week!

I also got some more Tim Holtz stamps (of course) and lots of cardstock for a bargain!  There were tons of things I wanted to buy but resisted (especially the Slice).

Going to go watch some of my shows now....Taking it easy tonight and then the rest of the week I need to catch up from the week I was sick.  Lots of housework to do and a little time to do it...  Ugh....Anyone have a magic wand that I can wave to get the housework done??  Haha!

No concert, but......

So, I was supposed to go see Rascal Flatts for my 5th time and meet them for my 1st time February 6.  Thanks to mother nature and the LOVELY snowstorm, the concert was CANCELLED.....Yes cancelled....  Big bummer.  However, we got 95% of the money back, excluding the fees, and our meet and greets are now good at any show this year.  Huge Bummer....

However....I just registered for 3 Tim Holtz classes in April!  I am so excited for these classes!  I am a HUGE fan of Tim Holtz and I think I own everything that has his name on it.   Lovin' his new book, Compendium of Curiosities, and I am looking forward to the classes.

Vegas was wonderful.  Definitely somewhere everyone should go at least once in their life!  I love the Luxor, because of the Egyptian theme....We stayed at The Orleans, which I really liked.  It wasn't 'on the strip', but with their free shuttle service to the strip, you can't beat it.  Gambled a lot....didn't come home ahead, but didn't come home broke either.

Next week, I'll be heading to my first NASCAR race at Bristol with the fam.   It's the sis-in-law's bday and she wants us to go.  I think it'll be fun, even though we don't follow NASCAR closely.   Best thing about the whole weekend is I get to stay in Gatlinburg, my favorite vacation spot....

Remember Me is on Friday!!!  I am SO excited for Mr. Pattinson's next film.....Looking forward to seeing him outside the Twilight Saga.  Eclipse trailer is on tomorrow at 9am and that's a HUGE event for the Twi-Hards!  I can honestly say that I am very excited for this as well...Only 111 more days!

Going to bed night.   Goodnight blogging world!
