I cannot tell you how much fun the first day of Scrapfest was! This was the huge, monster sign that greeted us when we arrived in the rotunda at the mall.
I met up with Linda, Anne, and Anita in the morning and we went directly to the Hero Arts Make-n-take booth.
There sat the Hero Arts artists! It was so fun to actually see them in person!
We were the first ones there and got to do our make-n-take right away, no standing in line! Yay! Here's Anne working hard on her card.
Here's Anita, working on her card.
Then we ran into Jenn and her friend.
And here's Anita, Linda, Anne and I after the Make-n-take.
And here's the card we all made. So cute!
We split up at that time because Anne and I had to head back to the Rotunda for the Tim Holtz class! We were so excited! While we were waiting in line for the class to start, we ran into Sarah! I recognized her right away!
Anne and I got to sit right up front, not 5 feet from Mr. Holtz! We made the most amazing project and laughed through the whole class! He is so cute and very funny! We really did sit this close to him! I did not zoom in at all with the camera.
I turned around and saw Latrice! So fun!
Here I am working on the tiny, little project.
And here is what we made. A teeny, tiny, mini-album! It is so cool!
We were all finished and guess what? We got to take a picture with the one and only himself! He was so nice!
He let everyone keep the supplies we used in class and gave us all a gift!
Look closely. That tiny bottle is a new small size of Glossy Accents that is also refillable. And as you can see, Tim was very generous and gave us each a big pack of Grungeboard and one of his new Christmas embossing folder sets that aren't even in the stores yet! What a guy!
The Hero Arts classes were next on the agenda, but this is getting so long already. I need to go and make dinner, do laundry and be with my family a bit. So I will post the rest of my first day at Scarpfest in the morning. I'm not heading to the mall until afternoon tomorrow. I also promise to take more photos because tomorrow night we are all going to have dinner together! Have a wonderful night and stop by tomorrow for the rest! :)
