A few weeks ago two girls from Cafemom that I chat with and swap cards with were talking about a Bella class they attended. I too, love the Bella's and was eager to join them. I had emailed Christa and Carol about the class and quickly called made arragements to join them for a class. The first one was cancelled because the Bella's weren't going to be there on time. Not a big deal as we were all able to reschedule to a few weeks later. The picture of us (L-R)- Me, Christa and Carol.
Well, I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to make the almost 95 mile trip! Yes, it was quite a long, boring drive but well worth it. We met at Red Robin for dinner where Carol greeted Christa and I with goodie bags filled with yummy smelling candles, candle holder and a cute notebook. We chit chatted over dinner and then made our way to the scrapbooking store. I walked in and felt like a kid in a candy store. The store is amazing and so is their classroom area. This picture is not even the whole store... Check it out!
The class was 2 hours long and I even learned a new technique! I had purchased the Koh-I-Noor from GinaK Designs but hadn't had the chance to pick up the mineral spirits to use with them so I have been using my blender pens. I LOOVE how the mineral spirits worked with the pencils we used last night and can't wait to use them with my Koh-I-Noor pencils!!! I have to admit that most of my time was spent coloring. I only managed to put one card completely together. How sad is that? Between talking and enjoying the coloring time flew by! Afterwards I was able to shop and picked up a few goodies for my SCS Secret Sister. I sent her first package out this weekend so she should be getting it soon.
Anyway, I had a blast, the food was yummy and the girls were as fun in person as they are online!
