Scrap for a Cure Weekend Crop and Classes in Coleridge NE

Well were back and rested up. Since Friday was our anniversary we headed to Norfolk Friday since Dan had a three day weekend and took in a movie and went to dinner. We stayed the night there so it would be a shorter drive to Coleridge for the classes in the morning. While I taught ,Dan busied himself driving around seeing the country around there, and then sitting in the car doing cross I guess he didn't want to be my teaching assistant??? lol
The shadowbox die project below was one of the classes. I taught 5.

The girls got creative and had alot of fun with this. We used the "Fairy Creative Scraps" and they picked out the images they wanted for their specific shadowbox.
The actually finished one project in class, to two others to do up at home .. using the rest of their images. They all seemed to really enjoys this time to just "create".

It's so fun to see how everyone personalizes their projects. Beautiful huh?

Some of the girls , of course where long time crafters..but it's so great to see someone like this who was totally new to this type of thing.. and jumped right in. She just got lost in her project and worked on it on her own way after class was over. I could tell she was really just enjoying the process!

Great to see people taking part in such a worthy cause.
"Scrap for a Cure" Fantastic that they put this event together in this tiny little town!!! Good work girls!

He's one of the other classes. I wish you could see that butterfly better. It's a Tattered Angels stamp..but then we used Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist over it and also outlined with my favorite SAKURA "stardust" pen. We used tracing wheels for a faux stitched look and did some fun pen work with a fine tip black sharpie.

Thank you Amy Hall for putting this event together!~!~
And for inviting me to come.

Next week my sister Jan and I will be teaching in Albion NE, so if you live near and want information just shoot me an email at

Jammies and slippers I come. lol

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!~~
