2nd Day of Scrapfest!

I am back with more about my weekend at Scrapfest!  I want to share with you all about it before I forget the details!  If you haven't had a chance to read about my first day you can click here.  Our second day of Scapfest was on Saturday.  I had a class that morning at 10 am, it was the Tim Hotlz class!  I was so excited!!!  While I was waiting in line my friend Natasha comes and finds me and tells me that she is holding me a spot close to the front!  What a sweetheart!  We were able to get good seats, in the front row!!!  What a great class it was!  Tim is a great teacher and talks a lot sharing really good information about his products!  Here is a picture of him teaching:

 I had a lot of fun taking the class with Natasha!  What a sweetheart she is, she loves to talk, as do I so we got along great!  Here is what we made in the class:

And wow what giveaways!  We got to take home the products we used!  Natasha was so sweet and gave me her 2 Distress Inks as she had the colors already while I hadn't (there were 2 kits of colors)  Ranger also gave us a package of grunge board, and Sizzix gave us 2 Embossing folders that aren't even out yet!!!!

Here is a picture of Natasha and me with Tim Hotlz!!!!!!!

After this Natasha had to go to her next class!  I on the other hand....

On Friday my friend Sophie who I traveled with and I waiting for an hour and a half in the line for GCD to make the cutest necklaces!!!  While waiting I chatted with some Flickr friends Sarah and Jenn!


When it was Sophie and my turn to make the necklaces I realized that the GCD girl Heidi was all by herself at the booth.  I was curious so I asked her why (most booths had several workers)  She shared with us that her helper's daughter had had a really bad asthma attack and she was only a year a half so Heidi told her to stay home.  Totally agree with that!  And that Melody Ross who was also with her was teaching classes.  I felt so bad for Heidi.  Everyone at Scrapfest loved the necklaces so there were long lines and while waiting in line I could hear some people complaining and not having the best attitude.  I asked Heidi if she would like me to help her tommorow (Friday was almost done by this time) and she was so touched and happy by that and said she would love it!  I didn't even think before I asked her, I just thought I could help!  Sophie also wanted to help!  On Saturday while I did my class Sophie helped Melody Ross do the make and take while Heidi taught a class.  When I was done my Tim Holtz class I headed over to the GCD booth and helped out!  For a little bit I was all by myself and ran the GCD booth while Melody Ross went to teach her class and Heidi returned!  It was so fun!  Here is my necklace that I made:
I showed the necklace with the box that it comes in!  The blue part is a piece of chipboard that you mist with water, stamped with an Ornamental stamp like these , it leaves a impression in the chipboard!  And you paint it!  How cool is that?  So I umm well didn't do any make and takes on Saturday, instead I helped out with the GCD Booth?  How cool is that:? It was so fun! Here is a picture of me in action:
And here is a picture of me and Heidi from GCD who really may be the nicest and happiest person ever!  Loved  her! 

Oh and here is a picture of me and Melody Ross!!!  Melody is so sweet!


The Chip Art necklaces were so popular that they ran out while I was there!  Too bad I was having so much fun!

After that Heidi totally spoiled my friends and I!  Look forward to seeing some creations!  For the late afternoon my friends and I went shopping!  :>  I will be back later with the Hero Arts Flickr dinner we had that night...
