chocolatequente day 2


Today was the second and final day of the event. It has been such a treat to be with all these wonderful people. There were 5 classes taught. They were all so different. Pete Hughes from Sizzix taught how to make some incredible paper flowers. They looked like silk flowers. Aimee Filimoehala from Graphic 45 made some detailed drawers with a teeny intricate album. Patricia made a crate full of items using the Maggie Holmes collection. Teresa taught an elaborate album using products she designs. The projects were very detailed and time intensive, but everyone managed to finish. Here is one of our classes of the day. This class got very creative and customized their albums.

Here is my mom and I with Patricia's youngest son, Felipe. He was quite the charmer. He passed candy to everyone during the classes.

Here are all the teachers from the event.

Today was the first day of the event. The project is a mini album built on the clipboard from the new Maggie Holmes line from Crate Paper. We taught 3 classes. I was surprised at how many "scrapbooking words" I knew in Spanish. The paper, alphabet, and journaling cards are from the Love You More line my mom designed for Pebbles. The Thickers were made from my own handwriting. They have my name on them and everything. This is our first class. All the women from Spain were in this group.

This is another one of our classes. I totally forgot to take a picture of the third class.

L: This is Afonso. He is only 7-years-old, but he does all the classes himself. // R: European hot chocolate is nothing like what we have in the States. It is so good that the event is named after it. (Chocolatequente)

This whole adjusting to a new time zone thing is kicking my butt. It doesn't help that we stay up until at least 2:00am talking.
