More Scrapfest Photos from Day 1!

Happy Saturday!

This post is a continuation of my first day at Scrapfest, so if you haven't seen yesterday's post, click here so you don't miss the fun we all had!

After Anne and I left the Tim Holtz class, we headed right up to the fourth floor for the Hero Arts classes. We took two classes in a row from Jennifer and Shari! We made three cards in each class. The classes were so fast paced. . .45 minutes each, and I've never made cards so fast in my life. It was difficult but very exhilarating! Here's Jennifer and Shari being the goof balls that they are!




And here is Shari. So cute, so fun and just so sweet!




Natasha was there too! She is just a little peanut, so full of energy and almost 8 months pregnant! We saw her shopping at Archiver's too and boy can she shop! Anne and I were getting tired by then, but not Natasha! Isn't she cute?





Here is Jennifer in the middle of teaching the class. I love listening to her voice and she says the funniest things! She calls glue dots "snot dots," and if ya think about it, they really do look like dots of snot! We had a good laugh at that one!




I thought you might like to take a look at my crafting space in the middle of making a card during this fast and furious class.




They gave us lots of free stuff too! With each class, we received a pack of goodies and during the class they did some random giveaways too! Here's what I got from both classes.




The next six photos are of the cards we made. I won't explain each one because these posts get too long. I love them all! I think the one with the beautiful felt leaves is my favorite. It doesn't open. The "togetherness" panel slides out. My other fave is the pretty resist one with the gorgeous blue ribbon and unique opening. Enjoy:











After the Hero classes we went up to Archivers for some shopping. I was disappointed because they did not have the Fabulous Flourish or the Plaid Background! But I did get some great stamps!



That's it from day 1. I hope you enjoyed it! I tried to make it so you'd really get the feel of our day. I'll be leaving again this afternoon to go back. I don't have any classes today but planning on doing some more make-n-takes, shopping again and of course dinner with everyone at 6:00. Can't wait for that! I'll take more photos and share them either tonight or tomorrow.

Have a great day! :)
