Congrats, Carol!!  I'll try to email you, or you can email me at

This week's blog candy is the Bo Bunny Crush Collection Pack. So be sure to become a follower and then leave a comment on each post this week.

One of the highlights of our CHA trip was, of course, getting to see Tim Holtz again. We are big Tim fans around here. So we've got a little demo video to share with you, and a few more pics....

Here's the Monique Griffith Design Team with Tim. Left to right, it's Becca, Wendy, Tim, Monique and Susan.

Tim sandwich!!

Tim signs my book. So glad we finally remembered to bring them with us for his autograph.

I was walking around and ran into Mario (Tim's friend and helper). So we chatted for a while and got a pic. He's just as sweet as Tim is!

A sampling of the masterpieces in Tim's booth. *Sigh* I have much to learn.

I LOVED this book! Tim, if it ever goes missing, you might want to track me down, though I will certainly deny it.

And how beautiful is this? "Sew" colorful, rich and girly all at the same time!

Thanks for stopping by. I'm going to try to post again later today so I can show you how much fun we had at the Provo Craft Gala. That was a night to remember!!

Tim's projects are so beautiful! I don't think that's something that can be learned. He must've been born with it inside.
