Little bit of this and that...

Hey Friends!
Sorry I havent chatted with you in a while. Things have been super busy since Christmas and I finally decided that I need to update this blog of mine. The boys are great! Bryan just turned 11 last week and he is getting ready for Baseball to start...Jack is going on big trip to Colorado with the Younglife group to the Frontier Ranch. He can't wait! And we are planning a much needed vacation in April to Hilton Head. I have never been there so I am really looking forward to it. I just hope the weather is nice for the beach...

So here is where I will be and what I am doing:

I have some classes coming up this Spring  at Auntie Em's Scrapbooking and Beading in Cornwall Ontario!
I will be teaching two layout classes, an Altered Frame and an Album. All four classes will be held April 19th and 20th. This is going to be such a fun weekend and I love seeing all of the girls up there in Canada land...
Here is a photo of the album I will be teaching...



This book is a perfect hybrid of Mixed Media and traditional scrapbooking. There will be loads of techniques and cool ideas with the idea that photos will be added to the pages. This book was a labor of love and has to be one of my very favorite projects to date. And this kit will be loaded....just sayin!

...........................................................................................

Next on the list: Art du Scrapbooking in Terrebonne, Quebec! Stephanie and I have been working together like crazy to plan a fun filled Prima weekend in Quebec. I am teaching there on May 18th and 19th and I am teaching four classes all weekend. I will have a translator there for my french speaking attendees!


We will be creating this cute Tag mini album using the new Lyric collection with chipboard, flowers, metals and more! This is great for a series of little photos...

........................................................................................

Then in June: I am teaching at the Sweet Retreat event in Pittsburgh! I am offering two classes for the attendees and also teaching at the event will be the ever talented Eileen Hull from Sizzix! This is the album we will be creating that weekend....


It's a really sweet project (haha-no pun intended) and I am using some unique embellishments and ideas to make this whole project POP!

............................................................................

So thats what I have planned for now! The other exciting bit of news I have is that I will be returning to Brazil this fall, in November with Craft and Scrap Brasil! Rommel and I are planning this tour as we speak...I have so many ideas in my head for the classes! So be on the lookout for news on that in the future and if you wanted to be included be sure to contact Rommel or myself (I can forward information and inquiries to him directly). Email me cari@primamarketinginc.com

Thanks for visiting--I appreciate it so much! xoxo Cari
