I DID it! I'm Certified!

What a wild and wacky weekend I've just had. I headed out for San Antonio on Friday and managed to get myself quite lost trying to find my hotel. The traffic was backed up for miles and it was drizzling and I missed where I was supposed to turn. Thank goodness for loving husbands who will sit on the cell phone and direct you street by street to where you're supposed to go.

So I started off the weekend on a bit of a shaking foot, but the rest was smooth sailing from there. I had dinner with my amazing and awesome daughter, took three fun classes at Stamp Antonio with Sally Lynn McDonald and then on to the Copic Certification Class on Sunday. What an awesome experience, meeting all these super talented gals and being emersed in stamping and crafting for two entire days.

Here is a picture of the room where we took our Certification class:

Here is Sally Lynn signing my certificate:

What a fabulous teacher she was and sooooo funny! I loved every minute of this full weekend and learned so much it will take me months to sort it all out. I will soon have a blog button on my side bar - Woooo Hoooo!
