Creative Escape 2010

Another great Creative Escape behind us ...

I'm resting up today from a very busy and fun filled three days.

Thursday was the Technique Boutique. All afternoon the attendees get to visit with the teachers at the trunk show, and go table to table collecting handouts, and making projects that they'll need for some of the classes. These projects are ones that take a little more time or explanation than what regular class time allows.

I worked at the table making organza and tulle flowers for Heidi Swapp's class.

Friday morning we arrived in our classroom for the AV set up at 7 am .... we set up and organized the classroom .... watched as the attendees lined up outside each of the classrooms for when the party began at 8 am sharp! All day Saturday is another round of classes.

This year I had the great pleasure of working with Claudine Hellmuth.

What a sweetheart, she's funny and knows more about paint than anyone I've ever met.

In class, she taught nine painting techniques which were then mounted on a canvas for display.

The Scrapbooks Etc store, on location at the hotel, was constantly packed with people and products to buy.

Everyone seemed very happy with the mix of teachers, classes, food, and hotel ..... if you've never been, you should definitely consider it for next year .... I'll see you there!

Have a great week ....
