And I'm back.... ooooohhhh and winners to announce!

What a week, last week was!
So much more than I was expecting, in so many levels!

Amazing time and moments for sure to remember!
I had the best time ever with Jenn. I think that in the day to day store activities, yes you get to build a relationship but these 3 days made truly an impact on ours! Thank you (I would use a better word than that if I could) JENN for this amazing experience you gave me the possibility to live. Good driving times, good chats and they were nonstop!

We had a fabulous time with Jenn's mom in Bobcaygeon on Tuesday night, the perfect "pit stop" to start our journey to Toronto! She's such a wonderful women - thanks for the short but amazing little visit!

First photo is after our first day in Toronto after our Copic class. What a fabulous product it is! WOW! I just can't wait to give it a try and the store should start having them really soon! And i will add to my side banner soon my "Copic certification mark"!

Thursday was an AMAZING - FABULOUS - WOW day!
Because 2 of us was representing the store, Jenn and I were sharing the 8 class presented! The 4 that I got were Scrap Rats (program offered by OPW), Prism Cardstock & the Marvy punches, Daisy Buckets and We R Memory Keepers! WOW tones of good and new products to bring back home, new techniques and wonderful classes completed! (During that time Jenn took Making Memories, Ellison, Core'dinations and Spellbinders)During the full day of classes between our breaks at lease 15 make and takes were offered by all the companies presented! This was my mission to do them all and to play even more with the products.... FUN FUN FUN!

At Lunch and at the Diner Banquet - Stacy Julian - was the guest speaker and this was the best part of the 3 days in TORONTO! SHE IS AMAZING! (yes that's the word you will read the most in my post). To think about your personal "Bucket", "Creative Curve", the "Sparkles" in our lives...just to name a few! She is a eloquent speaker, knows what she is talking about, funny and dynamic! I was blessed to have some time with her to view my layouts and to have her valuable feedback! Thank you Stacy and I hope our paths will join soon again! Both Jenn and I miss you all ready!

I would have loved to have a picture with Cassandra Cooper (Owner of Daisy Buckets) to share.... She is truly fabulous girl! Loved her class and their journey as a company! She came with her Husband and daughter to enjoy some extra time in the region and the time in the parking lot talking for almost 1 hour was also again one of my favorite moment of my trip! I will be in touch with you really soon! I just have to add WOW on the paper ribbon trees and the big boards - soon to follow with my own creations - this is Cassandra's!

And the "boys" that's how we called them.... but we should maybe more refer to "Men" than "boys"! Yes President Jayson and top International Sales rep KC were in Toronto to represent My Minds Eye products! Jenn and I both won their prize pack and I just can't wait to play with their paper lines, stamps and die cuts!

And now to the fun part.... yes.... we have 3 lucky winners! I made a few of you wait for this and i thought of pulling an additional name! Yes! that's right, If I could I would have pull all of your names... Tara-Lynn, Icecheeks and Renee (Closet Artist) please email me (see my profile for email) and send me a few digital pics to select from (I want at lease that you have a surprise when you will receive your layout) and patience I will get back to you to have you address and or make arrangement to drop you off your winning layout! Thanks to all that have participated and potentially will do this giveaway soon again!

Hugs and have a wonderful week!
