We got some fun New York papers.

Last Day in Boston
Class started at 8:00 with Tim Holtz so I was a bit of a zombie all day.   Darn that Flat Lisa is always wide awake and ready to go.

Mario didn't know quite what to make of Flat Lisa.

They always have great samples with them.

Here is Tim in full teacher mode.

I'm sorry to say that I actually did not have any time in Dyan's class to take a photo.  We moved at a very fast pace and still did not finish everything she wanted to teach us.

Luckily, I found some other photos to inspire you.  Here is a bit from Graphic 45.
We will be getting a box filled with these great charms next week from Farmhouse.  
I couldn't resist ordering more goodies from Impression Obsession.
These mini flower dies are just too fun to pass up.

We still have a couple of spots left in this great class this weekend.

Here is Flat Lisa with one of the owners of WOW! embossing powders. I told him how Flat Lisa loves her photo taken with men.  I may have placed a rather large order with them.  There will be fun demos and classes to come.

Flat Lisa may have twisted my arm a little I may have added some more goodies to my already pending Bo Bunny order.

Flat Lisa will be so excited that I ordered all these Maryland items for the store.

Oh, did I mention that I got to see and more importantly ORDER Two new Graphic 45 lines!  I can't show you yet but they are sure to please.

I will be teaching this adorable recipe book album from Farmhouse in June.

Dyan Reaveley was enjoying her time with Flat Lisa.

In fact, she thought Flat Lisa would be a nice addition to the Ranger displays.

Flat Lisa talked me into walking across a very dangerous road to get Mexican food for dinner.  It was worth the walk.

Tonight's project was very cool and messy.  The cover started off with a heavy layer of crackle paint.

Flat Lisa was very excited to play in class tonight.

I got a little messy in tonights class.  Played with Tattered Angels sprayed on Canvas and flowers.
