Saturday brought us to AMES Prom day. Chloe went with her boyfriend Michael, and they looked adorable! They had a wonderful time, and will have fun memories of the event! Laurel went with her boyfriend and a group of his friends. Her Sr. Prom at Skyline is in a few weeks, so we get to do this for her again...
Of course we are still really missing Tyler, I have made a few layouts from the pictures I took from the last few days he was here. It really is fun, and lets me look at his pictures for a really long time without feeling like an obsessive mom, LOL! I used the Basic Grey Marakech line for this layout, I love the quilty look of it! And the bright colors make me so very happy!!

Spring took a little break this week, so with snow on the ground it is nice to look at the little blooms in this paper!
I also want to wish my dear friend Kim Hughes a very happy birthday today, LOVE ya chica!!!

I love blog hops, they are so fun to follow the links and find what the next person has to share! The CHF Creative Chicks have a blog hop today, and then if you go on to the CHF Creative Blog you can find out who is getting goodies from playing along with the Spring Card Challenge from last week.
The card that I made used images from Sweet Spring and Spring Trees sets from the Kim Hughes collection. Patterned Papers are by Pink Paislee, Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket. I used the new blender pen from Ranger (very cool, but I need to practice!!!) to color and all of the images were stamped with Ranger inks, Peeled Paint Distress inks and Adirondack Ginger.
Leave me a comment about your favorite thing about Spring, and I will randomly pick someone on Monday at noon to get a Spring Trees stamp set.
Hope that you are having a very hoppy Spring!!!

We got started Friday morning with a beautifully organized and clean room, it wasn't that way by the time we were done with it! This is a picture of my work surface. We all introduced ourselves, and then had a tour of the facility, so fascinating! One of the big happy points for me is that most of Ranger's products are manufactured in the USA at the facility in New Jersey!! That is a good thing!!! Tim is the Willy Wonka of the inky world, he knows how to have fun and how to think of fun and clever toys that add new wonder. Suze and Claudine (who I didn't get a picture of except on my phone and that is on my FB page) were delightful and so very knowledgable and inspiring as well. Loved the fact that we learned about all of the product lines at once, it opened up so many possibilites for exploration and fun!
Patti is wonder woman! She knew exactly what was going on at all times, and had the answers for anything! The event was run so smoothly, and everything had been thought of, great planning! Mario was the go to guy! He always had a smile on his face, and I swear, he never held still! He made sure we were fed, had snacks, beverages and empty trash cans! So kind and patient, gotta love him!!!
Lynn Warner and Crystal Rieger were Cindy's partners in crime. (see I told you, super fun tablemates!!!) Crystal is so funny and Lynn is so sweet and generous! My new super FAB BFFs!!!
The darling Donna Salazar was a few seats away but I could catch glimpses of her wicked cool creativity now and then, she has such a playful and free spirit that reflects in her style, LOVE that!!!
Sulie was my other tablemate! What a treasure as a new friend, and a fascinating and talented woman! She is from Vienna, Austria and has a shop there, the only one in town! She just might find me on her doorstop visiting! That is a part of the world that I have always wanted to see, and now having a friend there gives me the excuse I have always needed! Anyone want to go with me and make it a par-TAY?!!!
