This image is not from the class I just took but it is using some of the skills I learned over the weekend. This little stamped image is part of a local store’s Copic challenge. Pretty sweet deal you color the image and just by entering get a marker at 1/2 price. Good deal if you are a collector. Then there will be judging by shoppers in the store and a few prizes awarded. I am not counting on a prize BUT I am thrilled how the image turned out! The major goal for this week is finishing my online class that will be going live November 8th at Get It Scrapped.

Also I have a new tutorial going up at Get It Scrapped as well. It is a simple one but fun for the season, a little pumpkin.

Knowing Debbie it will be up in a few days. Happy Halloween everyone! I’ll make sure to get some shots of my Peacock and Bat up next 🙂

Chicago!

Well we are back from a whirlwind weekend! The Houghton 4 visited Chicago for a few days. I am officially part of the first group to be Certified at the Intermediate level with Copic Markers. I was accepted to the class and it hit during John’s vacation time so we all hopped in the car for a mini vacation.

We had the best time. We will definitely be going back to Chicago. So much to do! We stayed right down town at the hotel my class was being taught at so the girls and John could come back to home base to meet me for lunch and dinner. They toured the town and visited the “Sears” tower now the Willis tower and of course spent some quality time in the American Girl store.

I had an amazing day learning a ton about Copic Markers that I am now dying to put to use! As soon as I get my class all finished up for Get It Scrapped I hope to have some time to really play!
Saturday we all went to the Field Museum. AMAZING! Matt you would have drooled over the dinosaurs! Just amazing.

Just wanted to catch everyone up.
Hugs all!

Halloween is quickly approaching and as I scramble to sew costumes and complete tutorials and classes I had to throw one image together for an ICopic challenge. This is an image from a new friend/artist. Jayleen Weaver, or better known as Gurukitty in several circles is putting a new line of digital stamps out there and they are just too cute for words! She also is an amazing graphic artist and shares great info on Copic techniques on her blog.

Hugs to all! I hope to get some more scrapping in soon AND posting all the doings so we’ll see if I can get a few things checked off.
