What a Weekend!

What a busy weekend! It was awesome!!!!
Friday was the Paws On Scrapbooking Cyber Crop. We had a great turn out with about 35 active scrappers. Tons of challenges and prizes i haven't finalized yet but will shortly!
I was lucky enough to complete 2 layouts

1 was tanya's Everyday challenge... since I love ice cream and could eat it everyday... a layout would be perfect!
Ice Cream - any flavour [ anytime ]


Another challenge was to use GrungeBoard. I had done a bit of playing around with heat embossing on this grungeboard a few weeks ago, and this was a good challenge to use it!
I also played with the new ROSE MOKA papers. A Canadian Based company and wow.. i must say these papers ROCK!

That was my Friday night, as steve enjoyed some time watching tv and working till 10pm.
Saturday -- I had a headache and didnt do anything . I even went to bed early ... that's hard to believe on a Sat night. Usually I can scrapbook till about 1am.
I didn't sleep well either cause I was too excited about Kathy Thompson's photography workshop on Sunday !

Sunday morning was fantastic! Kathy Thompson... came to QUispamsis to give us a few tips and tricks on Photography and Photoshop! I am sooooooo happy i got to take this workshop! I can say that i am confident to take photos on Manual mode and not AUTO mode !! WOOHOOOO!!!!
I can decifer ISO's and also take pics with somewhat of a blurrred background. I have a lens on my BIRTHDAY wishlist!!!!
thank you Kathy for making this such a fabulous day and really looking forward to working with you again!!!
If you have a chance to take her photo workshops.... DO IT!! well worth it!
I do need some practice with Photoshop .. but i can edit to Black and White, add some vignette, and play with colors! That's a bonus!!!
I will post a few pictures a bit later for you!
chow for now
