Best day EVER!!

I had the best day ever at the Memories Scrapbook Expo in Columbus! I have always wanted to go but never had the chance to and my dad surprised me by taking me there and I got to meet Tim Holtz all thanks to my dad! I was at a booth looking through some items for sale while my dad went to the bathroom and passed Tim who was on his way out and he asked Tim if he would go over and say hi to me. As I was looking at the things for sale I hear someone come up behind and say my name and I turn around and it was none other than Tim Holtz! I was beyond excited and still am. He was so sweet and let me take a picture with him!!

I also had to get a picture with Mario, Tim’s Sidekick.
(Mario and me)
                                                       (me, Ted, and my dad)

I had made a card for Ted Cutts owner of Stampers Anonymous for his birthday and was waiting for the right time to give it to him because he was busy running the booth. So as I was watching Tim do some demoing Ted walks by collecting some things for a customer and when he was done my dad put his hand on his back and started talking with him.  Ted is an awesome, down to earth guy and we talked with him for about 15 mins.

He loved the card I made for him (which was similar to the one I made for my dad on his birthday because my dad suggested I make him one like that since it was his favorite card from me.) After I gave him the card, Ted asked me if I got to meet Tim and this was after Tim and I got a picture taken together and said yes I did and then he asked me if I got his autograph and I said no and he asked me if I had anything I would like to have him sign so I got out the Stampers Anonymous catalog I received earlier that day when I purchased some things. So Ted interrupt Tim’s demoing and asked him to sign it for me! How cool is that!?!?!

Ted tells Tim to make it out to Brandy and Tim is looking around asking who it was for and I raise my hand and he says “oh yeah we met earlier” I am still in awe this happened to me all thanks to my dad! I think I am going to take him with me to places more often :-) For this being my first time ever at a scrapbook convention I would say it turned out pretty well!!!

Birthday card

I made this card for my niece Abby's 4th birthday.

Easter Tag

I made this tag for the color palette challenge on the Ranger blog. I used Tim Holtz distress inks for the background (which I love how it turned out and hated to cover it up), distress crackle paint, stickles clear rock candy (for the flowers), Tim Holtz tattered florals die, mini leaf die, tag and bookplate die, Claudine Hellmuth Multi Medium, sticky back canvas, Tim holtz stamp, Easter images and words from the seasonal paper pad, and metal flower embellishment from Tim Holtz.

Tattered Florals challenge

I made this using the Tim Holtz pocket die, Tattered Florals die, and Flourishes die for the Tattered Florals challenge. I cut the flower from sticky back canvas and then inked them with distress ink. After they were dried I stamped them with a Tim Holtz reflections script stamp and then put a layer of Claudine Hellmuth Multi Medium to seal them.

Here is my attempt of the March tag. I am not super happy with how it turned out but I gave it a shot.
