What Happens in Paris ...

SSSa2411 Stays in Paris! That is the law people! So I can't tell you who said something so completely outrageous that I cried with laughter until my stomach muscles hurt ... or indeed what they said!

I can't tell you who laughed so hard they nearly shot Soda out through their nostrils ...

I can tell you ... I had the BEST time ... that I met some fabulous people and that I enjoyed teaching my classes more than I could ever have imagined. I can also tell you that I think if I had stayed a little while longer ... well my French would probably be amazing ... but I did n't ...

I totally missed a decent internet connection ... which is why I am posting my challenge for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge so late in the day! Without Twitter, Facebook or Blogger ... I felt like my right arm had been severed at the elbow! SSS2411

My flight home was also delayed and my car was a lonely sight ... in  a dark corner of Luton Airport's Mid Term car park in the wee hours of this morning with so much ice and snow on it that it took me hours to de-ice it! I say hours ... I exaggerate ... but you guys already knew that ... Right???

Boy ... was I glad when my head finally touched my lovely soft and puffy ... erm ... rectangular pillows ... but that is a whole nuther story!

Anyways ... back to the job in hand ... the challenge theme this week is Simon Says Stamp and Show "a tag" and this is my tag. It is made with some wonderful Lord Tim of Holtz product and some THE Wendy Vecchi stamps that are all available online at Simon Says Stamp ... the wonderful people that sponsor the challenge site.

The next tag you see on my blog will probably be inspired by Lord Tim of Holtz whose 12 days of Christmas tags will start in the next few days ... I for one CANNOT wait ... you know Tim ... the man that creates an individual pattern on each and every snowflake as it falls from the sky with just a Ranger Craft Sheet and a Pokey Tool!

Oh ... and if you did n't know this already ... you heard it here first ... there is in fact no French translation for the word Pokey!!!

I must away ... I have another class to prepare for tomorrow ... in the not so distant and equally exotic Olney!

Be well people ... Laters!

Hello Linda,
I was very pleased to attend your 2 classes. I have only regret because I had not attended the 3rd one.... You are a great teacher and we won't say to Tim what you said about him.... It is a secret.
Take care !
