Two More Sleeps!


Sorry Anne ... but I can't not count down or talk about meeting Tim ... the man that can speak every language ever written while winning a pasta eating competition and playing Trivial pursuit ... while making an orphanage with just fired brick distress stickles ... now can I?

Mind you ... I am getting less and less sleep as the day draws nearer ... so who knows it may be only one sleep or indeed a quick nap!ZZproject3a210

The beer mat book is one of my submissions for the Zutter DT last month and was such fun to make. I had a load of Graphic 45 scraps left from my screen class kits which were the perfect size to cover beer mats ... added some Grunge paper and lots of stamping with Darkroom door and Wendy Vecchi stamps ... it was great fun.

Righty-ho ... I need to pack my bag ... I am teaching in the morning and the new distress inks have arrived so we shall be playing with those and I shall be picking mine up too ... ain't life great!

OOOO OOOO ... I nearly forgot ... I blogged a card earlier for the Kreative Kaboodles blog ... made from this little lot in around 10 minutes ... all the details are here.

Night all!

Have fun with Tim on Sunday.

Hi Linda , I just wanted to say thanks for the class yesterday, I had a whale of a time and learnt so many new techniques.
Hope you had a great day today with Sir Tim!!

Hi Linda

I just love all of your work. I so want to do what you do but it's so far from what I do, I just haven't got the tiniest clue where to start, so I don't - because I would be so bitterly disappointed with whatever I made.

All I have at the moment are Tim Holtz CD's! Oh and some accent stuff!

The answer would be to find a class/course I guess. Do you know of anything that would help me in my quest?
