TV: House

On Mother's Day I spent time at my brother's.  He introduced me to the TV show House.  I've been missing out!  This show is hilarious!  

Hugh Laurie is a comic genius.  He plays the role of a pompous, overbearing, know-it-all.  And yet, the show has heart.  There are little twists and turns.  Wrong guesses.  Mind games.  There are also touching moments and personal battles.  

I have had plenty of opportunity to sit around lately, so I've been able to watch the DVD series back to back.  If you happen to have some time to sit around I would definitely recommend giving House a try!

Have a whimsically wonderful day.

Camp Croppin' 2011

April 15 and 16th was Camp Croppin' 2011, hosted by Scrapbooker's Paradise in Calgary, Alberta.  What a fabulous event!  The ladies that organize this event outdid themselves again!  The keynote speaker was Katharina Doyle, co-founder of Canadian Scrapbooker magazine.  She spoke to us about the importance of teamwork.  Allison Orthner described the four different kinds of scrapbooker, and then led us through a fast-paced teamwork exercise... we made a beautiful scrapbook page in 5 minutes!

I did make and takes with Tattered Angels, Stampendous, and American Craft.

I did a classes with Stampendous, Bo Bunny, American Craft and Prima.

I made a whole mini-album in 2 hours!

The ideas I gathered will definitely influence the classes I host in my workshop!  I can't wait to get scrapping!

Hooray for fabulous prizes!
