We had 2 more retreaters join us on Friday evening. They were mother/daughter. The mother
scrapbooked and the daughter made cards. Now Teresa and I had met the mother. She had nicknamed us Paula Dean (me) and Martha Stewart (Teresa) of scrapbooking. I know...it makes us laugh every time we talk about it. We lived up to our name (according to this duo) during this retreat when we showed some of our tools and what you could do with them. I had brought my sizzix Big Shot die cutting machine along with some dies and embossing folders. I had shown the daughter how to use the embossing folders with paper for cards then Teresa took it to another level and showed how you could cute aluminum with the dies and then emboss. The look on this girl's face was priceless. "Say what?!"
Later that day we took a road trip out to the middle of no where to a small craft store called Country Scents. I'm talking "boonies"! In fact, everyone is instructed to call first before they come!
It was a day full of fun!
Have a good one!
