What a great day!

Hello friends!! Here's a collage style card as an homage to TIM (Tim Holtz)! I may have to get grungier because it was a fun day yesterday! Sharon (Buffalo Stamps and Stuff) and her "people" organized a wonderful day complete with personal shoppers! Lisa, Tracy and I took the Generation Grunge class from the man himself! My card uses Artichoke card stock, then a layer of Riding Hood Red. The "white" panel is Vintage Cream and is embossed with one of the (many) Tim Holtz products I bought yesterday-an embossing folder! I found the dotted paper on my desk from another project and the card came together. It also uses Papertrey Ink's Vintage Picnic set.
I think one reason the card came together is that I looked at the Featured Stamper challenge on SCS this morning and saw a card I liked! I'm going to upload my card as a CASE over there.

And here's TIM! He was a great teacher, but we
WORKED! I thought I would never get all that sanding done!

Wish I knew what he was discussing here! He was very entertaining!

And, finally a couple of photos of my Generation Grunge Journal. We used the same elements, but the journals I was able to see were all very different!

That's it. I must try to get a Mo card done tonight and, of course, my Maggies have felt neglected since last weekend!
Thanks for coming by to look!
Hugs, Cheryl

Your journal was so pretty! I loved the colors you chose! It was a fun day, but I was beat at the end of the day! Your card is very pretty too! I haven't even opened anything I bought yet! Too tired! LOL!! Great pics of Tim. I think he was saying "keep sanding" in the second pic! Hahaha!

How very exciting and fun, Cheryl. Your journal is AMAZING and I heard just how much sanding you had to do to accomplish that little work of art! What a wonderful experience.
