I am so anxious to actually meet these wonderful ladies who are just as excited as me to go to Creative Escape.

More CE Prep Goodness !!

Do you know what happens when you take a Hambly pink transparency, some clear acrylic and a graphic print out of a button and a fiskars circle punch and mix them all up ? Yep, you guessed it more adorable charm for the charm swap.

Here is the new charm I made the for 2nd Chance Charm Swap at Creative Escape.

The Creative Escape crew and Heidi Swapp's latest venture, House of Three, posted a fun digital autograph book for us to print out and create a book to have our teachers sign. I whipped up this little book over the weekend. The front cover is actually flocked embossed black pattern paper that is gorgeous IRL but you can't see in the photo too well. I also POPPED the Creative Escape graphic up over the pink Hambly transparency.

On the inside of the book is a page for each Creative Escape teacher to sign. I designed each page to represent the style of that particular teacher. Here is the page I did for the INK GOD, Tim Holtz to sign...So very excited to be taking a class from him !! On the left hand side of the layout, I will put a pic of me and the teacher.

Hope you like what I did. I can hardly wait for Creative Escape...only two more weeks and I will be on that plane heading to Arizona !!!

How Charming !

I posted a few months ago that I had joined the Creative Escape Yahoo Message Board. As part of being on the board, participants get a chance to sign up for some amazing swaps.

One of the several swaps that I did, was the charm swap. We had 75 amazingly talented ladies participate to create all handmade charms. I received my set of the charms this week and have spent the past few hours placing them on a custom beaded necklace to show case all these beauties at CE.

Here's a pic of what I will be wearing in just a couple of weeks at CE.

Isn't it beautiful ? I just love how different each and everyone of these charms turned out.
I loved this so much, I have joined the 2nd Chance Charm Swap so I can add even more to the necklace :) Stay tuned for more charming goodness !
