Wow times flies when you're having fun, huh? Well, not so much having fun just on the go. If I could figure out a painless way to blog from my Blackberry I would but alas there are only so many hours in the day and they seem to be slipping through my fingers.

A health update–got some new meds and hopefully I will be on the road to recovery soon. I lost my voice today too. I wish someone would let the germs know they need to *schedule* time for me to be sick–I can't be having it happen when I am teaching and cropping and chatting. Hello germies?! I have stuff planned. Seriously!

Anyways, here's what I have been up to, sinus infection and all:

Thursday – Nap time. All day! I do not like to sleep so for me to sleep all day means it was much needed.

Friday – Did some non-scrappy stuff in the AM (who cares if it ain't scrapping, right?! LOL) and then off to crop at Scrapbook Boulevard!! I got some *work* stuff done (you know for classes, Etsy) and then did a page and a card:





I also got to work on that Wizard of Oz banner I have been trying to do from my “death couch”. I am hoping to have it done this week!! I feel so terrible for taking so long. I wish I weren't sick cuz it is seriously getting old. :(

So after staying up until 130 am doing emails and such (OMG) I got up at 6am for a FULL DAY OF SCRAPPERIE!!

I met Cheryl McAdam at SB Blvd and we trekked 2 hours south to Ever After for back to back GlimmerMist filled classes!!

Elema came by to share all things Scrapbook Royalty. Here we are in our endless quest to get a picture of us together:


We also sold raffle tickets to benefit Komen For the Cure's San Diego chapter — no word on the total yet but I know it was well over $100 raised from the raffle.


The class proceeds are also being donated to Scrapbook Royalty to help us with our operating costs. We had Fairy Fly Bys for everyone who came to the store and a goodie for everyone who took the Princess Crown Book Class from me. Also, everyone in Cheryl's class got a little goodie from me.

Elena and Cheryl met for the first time today — pretties in pink!

Elena loved this layout in the store and I *promised* to post it:

She is the Starbuck's Queen you know!!! Don't know who did the page but everyone was loving it!

My favorite part of the day was meeting Michellene and making her a “winner”. She won the Prima prize in my class, at which time she exclaimed she “never won anything”:


And then she won the BIG raffle basket (Elena is pointing to Michellene as the winner!):




And then she won like 5 more Fairy Fly Bys I was giving way–woohooo!!

It was great to see familar faces in the class as well as to meet new people. All in all, we had a great time! And we made a huge misty, painty mess–don't you love crafting?!

Teah and Joanne came all the way from my neck of the woods (Victorville, Inland Empire) to enjoy Cheryl's and my classes:

Jessica and Carla were loving all the glitter!
I totally do not know how we will get all of this done in time! LOL

Michellene admiring the cute Prima stamps in the kit:

After that I went to lunch with Elena at this place called Habanero's … OMG it was super yummy! And then to the SBR storage building to get some goodies to work on our Royalty On The Road Program for the rest of the year. Are you an instrcutor? Do you want to host an event at a Scrapbook Store, based on a class you design, to benefit your favorite charity? Well, stay tuned because we are wokring on the program and opening it up to instructors everywhere!! So far we have raised over $500 for various charities and $400 for Scrapbook Royalty! If you're interested, please send me an email at [email protected] and I will keep you updated.

Now I am off to play with a goodie that was waiting for me when I got home tonight–a BRAND NEW Polka Dot Whimsy Kit!! Woohoo!

P.S. I got an email shipping notice that my QK Prize goodies are shipping next week….get ready fro some giveaways!!!!!!!
