What a fun-filled day!! As you can see, I am posting at 3am!! LOL

First off I have to mention that you can now earn money for your favorite charity on GoodSearch.com. And guess what is my favorite? Scrapbook Royalty!! Just go to Goodsearch.com, which is powered by Yahoo, and type in the charity you want to benefit. Then start searching as you normally would. You can even see how much money has been raised. For more details on how this works, please check out SBR's blog.

GoodSearch: You Search...We Give!

Tonight I went down to The Scrappin' Table to say hello to Stephanie Ackerman!! She was doing a class there and I was unable to take it so I figured I could at least say hello. She is so nice and talented–love her!! I just can't say enough about the great feeling I get from her and how her projects are so fun and heartwarming.

I also saw Robyn, Tiffany, and a few other Table friends! I was there meeting Anne because we were on our way to Scrapbook Oasis for the Candace Carpenter Halloween Layout class. We had signed up long before we knew Stephanie was coming to the Table…arrgghh to have to CHOOSE!!! Anyways, Anne and I carpooled and met PJ down there at Oasis for a night of fun!!

Anne, Candace, and I:

Here's Anne loving the Blackboard + Stickers from Cosmo Cricket:

Ms. PJ, deep in concentration:

Here's my first layout!

Me and Peej, doing the “My Space” pose:

While we were there, I saw Felicia and Cindy from It's About Time!! LOL

Small world–we each traveled over an hour to get to Oasis. I also saw Cartrice, long time scrapper in the IE! We had a blast and made a few new friends along the way too. And Candace was just awesome in every way–very patient, down to earth, and just pleasant as can be. It was really nice taking the spot of “student” tonight in this class.

Alright, if you know me, you know I DON'T usually take classes. It's not a case of thinking I am too good for it I just think if I can figure it out, I will, instead of taking the class. But I am starting to “get it”, that it is more of an experience than just getting the project itself. I really had a great time and look forward to taking more classes. Hopefully it will make my classes better and make my customers' experience in my class better too–that's the goal anyways! And I got some super cute layouts too so that can't hurt either…

Here are the layouts — I put them up on a bookcase to be Halloween decoration until after Oct31 and then I'll put this year's pics on them. They are too cute to just stick in my stack of stuff!! On this first layout I made a Matthew skeleton and a Katie skeleton–they are pretty cute!!! Katie has the bow of course…

TODAY (OMG I don't even know how I will get enough sleep) I am teaching THREE classes at two different locations!! Check it out–there is still a tiny bit of room in each so go ahead and come on down to the class!
