I'll be seeing you...

It's just a long weekend for me-yippee!

I had ordered the Magnolia Spring Club package and am finally getting around to using another Tilda from the set of images that I received. She's such a cutie and the red was a perfect choice to go with my ladybug (and I had it out from yesterday's card, lol). She is colored with Copics and layered on some gorgeous double sided Crate Paper. I inked around both the main image and the mat with some Distress Ink in Brushed Cordouroy. The ribbon is from PTI and the flowers are from Michaels bridal which I colored with Copics and added flat backed pearl centers. Cute!

So about my weekend...I am leaving this morning (after I get the boys off to school and daycare) for a photography workshop in central New York offered through The Adirondack Photography Institute. The town is called North Bay. The leader, Eric Dresser, is an expert with wildlife photography and I am so excited to use my camera for something other than my cards! Actually it's a different camera, but I am still excited! Most of my workshops over the last 6 years have focused on nature photography of landscapes (both large and intimate portraits) and macro, which I love, but is murder on my back! With Eric we will be concentrating on birds and small mammals, which I have not done before. Not only is the itinerary exciting but I will be child free for 3 whole days! I return on Sunday sometime...maybe in time for dinner (that I will NOT be cooking, yay!). I love the solitude of a long drive too, although getting there is much more fun that driving home.

If you ever get the opportunity to take one of these workshops you will not be sorry! I know several of the instructors/photographers personally and they are not only my friends but the most wonderful artists and beautiful individuals. I would love to go more often but it's so hard with two small boys (besides, it's not free!).

So good bye, arrivederci, adios, bon au revoir, ciao...See ya next week! Have a fantastic weekend!

Great Card! Love your coloring too!!

Oh, I envy you! I'd love to do something like that. I was so into photography for a while, but it was taking all my time and I wasn't digital yet. The expense and the pictures stacking up! Now I have a Canon Rebel digital that works with my L-series lenses, but my new Vista and laptop won't work with my camera. Sheesh! I'm sort of on hold right now...

Oh, and I love your card, too. You do the most awesome work! I just love everything you do!
