I'M Back From Provo Craft Training...whew!

The reason I have been MIA is that I was selected to be a Provo Craft Demonstrator at Michaels.  Woohooo!  They selected about 200 of us nationwide to kick off a campaign that starts this coming Sunday, May 2nd.  We are going to be demonstrating.....get this..........

THE BRAND NEW CRICUT CAKE MACHINE !!!

I am so excited for this opportunity!  We get to demo the Cricut Cake the month of May every Sunday afternoon from 1 to 5 pm.  Select Michaels nationwide were chosen to have demonstrators. 

Plus get this....we are getting paid to do this!  Can you imagine, getting to play with one of the newest Cricut machines on the market ?  I am one lucky lady for sure.

To top it all off, they flew all of us to Chicago for a three day training class...all expenses paid!  We were treated like Cricut Royalty :)  We are working for Campaigners which is part of ASM.  They are supporting this huge campaign for Provo Craft.  We had training sessions on many of the Provo Craft products such as the Cricut Expression, the Gypsy, the Yudo, and of course, the Cricut Cake.  I learned so much about each of their products. 

Here are a few pics from the weekend. I will post a few more later this week.

Training Room Full of 200 wild and crazy Cricut Lovers !!

Lots of New Friends Were Made During this Trip.
 Here are a few of us from all over Texas. We even named ourselves the Cricut Mafia !  LOL
After a long day in training we managed to have a little bit of fun !

32 of my new BFF...of course, we had to see a scrapbook store while in Chicago. 
We all piled into a stretch hummer limo and made it to Windy City Scrapbooking.
Thanks to their wonderful team that stayed open late just for us to come to their store. 
We had a blast getting to know each other and of course shopping !

Here is one of my new BFF,Michelle, getting out of our stretch hummer.

As you can see here, Windy City Scrapbooking is an amazing store!
And of course, everywhere I go, I always look for my 2 Peas Message Board Friends.
Here is part of our group that got together and did a swap.

As usual, the 2Peas group was full of creativity and wonderful swap items were given. 
Thanks ladies. I LOVE everything I received from you !

This post is getting too long...so I am cutting myself off.  Check back tomorrow and I will share some info we received from Provo Craft during our training weekend.

I will be at the Michael's at Bissonnet and Weslayan here in Houston. Come by and see me if you are in the area on Sunday afternoon. Would love to see you and show you the Cricut Cake ! If you know anyone who might enjoy this fun new machine, tell them to come on by.
