Simon Says Create!

So, it's been a couple weeks now since I got back from Columbus, OH for Simon Says Create.
I have been on a creative high ever since.  I have been super busy with the end of the school year, a swim meet at Colgate University and I just found out I have the dreaded shingles!  I think I caught
it in time because I only have a small patch on my back(that looks like a fish according to my daughter).

Anyway, just a little about the weekend in Ohio at Simon Says Create. What a blast!!  Shopping at my fingertips inbetween classes which was not a good thing for my bank account! Here is a great shot of Emily(I think) drawing Simon in the store on a white board:

The classes and instructors were ALL fabulous!!!   Jennifer McGuire, Shari Carroll, Tim Holtz, Kelly Marie Alvarez(Lawn Fawn), Sandy Allnock and Stephanie Klauck.

Everyone working at the store and all the volunteers were great. I was so impressed by the attitude of every single person I annoyingly bothered with question after question. There were a few items I HAD to have. (I know you know what I'm talking about). These people went above and beyond to track it down in their warehouse, so I could take my precious items home with me, rather than having to wait for them to be shipped.

I want to thank each and everyone of that team for that!!!

The atmosphere was up close and personal.  I had a sooooooo much fun and cannot wait for next year!!!!!!! Here is a link so you can see what it was like: Simon Says Create 2014

One last shot and a HUGE Thank You to all the teachers and the Simon Says Family!!!!
