Chipboard and Old Lace

Hello Friends,

Yesterday was my big workshop at Archiver's in Buford, Georgia which is about 1.5 hours from home.  I met some really nice ladies in the class and a couple of them were on their way to scrapbook retreats for the weekend....what fun!!  Two friends had rented a house in the North Georgia mountains....
If anybody lives near an Archivers, I really recommend this workshop.
After my lunch at Moe's Southwestern Grill, I headed back east to the Lavonia Antique Market to look for anything vintage I could use on cards or albums...and lo and behold I found a whole box of vintage trim...you gotta check it out on the video.
By the way...William "Yammer" Binks though I couldn't tape this video without his supervision.  Do you think my yelling at him to get down worked??  Yeah..right!! 

Gotta go see what I can get into today....I need to rearrange my studio......but what I need to do and what I want to do are well......diametrically opposed!!!!

Micki, this is AWESOME!!! I just love your videos, and I enjoy your kitty coming in to say hello, you know they always have to be around to supervise! :) What would we do without them? he-he-he
WOW, your album looks great, you did awesome!!! I have one glimmer mist in blue, but I haven't used it that much, but I think you inspired me to play with it again. Thank you! And what a super great deal on the gorgeous ribbon - it's going to look so wonderful on your cards! Can't wait to see what you make with them!
Hugs!
Annie

Hi Micki! Welcome to our blog group and I'll get you on mine in just a minute or so - but I have to say I am so jealous of your found treasures - all that wonderful vintage trim (not that I don't have enough already - but I'm always up for more - LOL!)And, I love your cats - I have 3 of my own and yes they are always in my work space and way - but I love them so.
