 So I am late in telling you all about our fun and games at Scrapgrlz last Saturday in San Jose!! Let me tell ya, we had a great time meeting all the girls and getting our hands suuuuper messy!

There's Christine working on two canvases at once, and rockin' em both! What a great student - super open and willing to try all kinds of fun stuff!! Don't you love her choice of colors?

We used all kinds of fun products - Pitt Big Brush pens and Gelattos from Faber-Castell, Inka Gold and Pearl Pens from Viva Decor, Dylusions Sprays from Ranger, Modeling Paste from Golden, and Acrylic Inks from Liquitex. TONS of goodness!!

We played with rubons, tissue, vintage wallpaper, stamps and stencils to create amazing texture and depth to our canvases

There's Lauren working hard on her mermaid canvas. Do you see her hair? Yeah, I want it...

Shell's mum Helen joined in the fun, too! Look at how amazing her canvas turned out!!

I love the texture she added with the heart and how great she blended all the colors!! So cute!

On the way back home we decided the only thing to save our good humor was to first have a drink, then follow it with food loaded with carbie goodness. Enter the cream of mushroom soup at The Buckhorn. It's the best. We were in heaven. Well, I was in heaven. Mom was just plain tipsy after her citrus mojito. Which is, incidentally the best drink EVER if you ask her. And even though we only planned on soup, we ended up with big fat juicy steaks, too, because afterall, it's The Buckhorn, and not eating some sort of meat when you're there is just wrong.

And now for the winner of the Freebie Friday set of scrappy goodies....

Debra Hudson!!
What a great giveaway! Thank you so much for the chance to win! I have had a "crafty" summer so far. I have to have minor back surgery soon so I have been off work for a while. If it wasn't for scrapbooking I would be going crazy! Have a great day and thanks for the wonderful inspiration!
