My Ticket to ATC's

 

DSC_0338 (2) Yeah! It's my favorite teacher again...Carolyn Peeler! First class of the morning and she is so chipper & sweet, she's such a pleasure to be around! Here we are again!

I was fortunate to share a table all to myself with Cami. She's so fun! She said I had lovely accent...do I really? Cami and I  made a good team as  she kept me laughing and I showed her how to make a stitch or two. Fun! I so enjoyed this class that I hated to leave. In this class, we were to decorate a chip board book to house our ATCs (Artist Trading Cards). I didn't finish my project & I'm not even close. I was the only one in the class that made my hinge functional so I was working on the cover for almost the whole 3 hours! Here's just a peek since I am not even close to finishing this project.

And here are some ATC's that I received from some of my classmates.

I can't wait to finish my book to put them in! After a fun filled class, I didn't want to leave but, we had to get ready for the luncheon with Mary Engelbreit. I'm not a huge fan of her but I was delighted to see her and participate in everyone's anticipation of her presence. See these girls how excited?

Pam, ME, and Sandy

There were questions asked to her and she responded with witty answers and comments. She is very down to earth. Afterwards the line was a mile long of Bellas who wanted her signature on books, magazines and posters of her artwork. And of course, a photograph taken with her too! I, on the other hand went straight to my last class of the weekend pondering...do I really go home tomorrow, already? How fast this weekend has flown by.

4 classes down, 1 left. Please stay tuned. I really appreciate you hanging in there with me through my Silver Bella experience.

Can you believe it? I finished my ATC book. And I posted! I do not know who this strange alien creature is who has taken over my body. (I hope she loses some weight though. I wouldn't have any pictures of myself at SB if it weren't for you!) Love that working hinge idea.
