Road Trip - May 18-19th
Tim, myself and Kate looking on in the background.
The "Magic Man" himself, Mario. He has a special place in my heart...
The "Master" himself, Tim Holtz.
All Things Tim Group
Myself, Mario and the talented Marjie whom I fell in love with. Glad we sat together. Btw, I failed to mention that this photo belongs to Marjie.
A sample t-shirt of what my buddies and I wore. The images were put together by my sister, Annie and I added our names (Donna, Ivette, Jocelyne and Maria) on the lower right titled, "Road Trip". The girls and I were complimented on them. Some asked where can they be purchased. ; )
One of my unforgettable moments with Tim. Just to watch him point all the techniques and products that I had on my 3 page layout Halloween "Masterpiece" I created over a couple of months. It all began when I got my hands on Tim's first series of the Fall Distress Inks. These were white pages before I went to town on them with these inks. Gotta love them Distress Inks.
This was one of the goals I set out to accomplish this year. Having Tim look at my work.
My friend Donna and one of my other buddies took this photo. Tim observed all the techniques I used and actually found all my hidden secrets, i.e. masked police shield, small house and 2 skeletons. All stamps on this layout were Tim's works of art which are manufactured by the wonderful, Ted Cutts, owner of Stampers Anonymous. ; ) What an amazing moment for me... and my friend caught it all on camera. I felt honored. Only a Tim lover would and could appreciate this and understand it.
Here is my buddy Donna, Mario, Kate (owner of AE) and Tim Holtz checking out my "Masterpiece". Here he pointed to the "Mud Puddles" I used for the creek under the bridge. My friend Donna really makes it extra special with the smile she has on her face. I love my friends. I am so proud of this piece of art work. It is the best piece I've created yet.
On the left wearing the white blouse is fellow ATTer Terrie looking on with others as Tim demonstrated the new Eclipse machine.
Mario in the upper right background with Kate #2. Kate's staff was remarkable and I know it was very tiring standing up and running back and forth. They really had it together, I was highly impressed.
Look at Tim's expression. He was in such a great mood... everyone was! The energy level in that room was captivating, thrilling and unforgettable. It was awesome to see my friends Donna and Maria meet Tim and Mario for the first time. The girls have grown to love Tim's work and products. When I introduced Mario to them he hugged them both. I took that as a pre-Timitizing moment... lol. I LOVE Mario!
Below are ATTers, lower left corner is Marjie, Julie, Karen (standing next to Julie wearing white) whom was a helper for AE and on the right is Rene, whe was nice. She laughed at all my kidding around. We were fortunate to have had a nice and friendly table. What an amazing time this weekend was. Spending all these hours creating with Tim Holtz, Mario and friends! REALLY.... can it get any better than that? Not!!!
My friend Maria run the tonic package that was raffled off by Tim. Actually, three out of the four of us won a raffle. But, in my book, we are all winners! Maria was also pre-Timitized by me, Tim officially Timitized her too! Gotta love it! I'm so proud of her.
Now here is my friend Jocelyne who almost hit the ceiling when they called out her raffle number. I think she won the Distress Stains and re-inkers, not 100% sure on that one. All of Tim's giveaways were awesome. The one thing I didn't have that he was giving away was the one thing I wanted. His Tim canvas messenger bag. As he read out the numbers I said, 6 and that was the last digit number I needed. I was thrilled!
My dear friend Donna whom I've pre-Timitized was now officially Timitized by the Master himself. A proud moment for her and me. Just looking at her face you can tell how happy she was.
At the ATT dinner in Suprinos restaurant. Far right is our wonderful Patti, what a sweetheart! Marjie who sat next to me for the weekend, we had some good laughs. Yes Marjie, I love to laugh and make others laugh. Libby is sitting next to Marjie (thanks Patti).
From left to right, Heidi, Kathy, Kathie, Stacy Cook and my friend Maria.
Here are some pins I made, I was able to share some of them with my friends and our table.
These were bottle caps, I printed some of Tim's pics I had from previous classes, punched them out with my 1" MS circle punch. Used my copic markers to give it a vintage feel, added a pin to the back and they were good to go.
These pins were made out of shrink plastic which I purchased at Mike's, used my copic pens to add color, highlights and shade to give it dimension.
My Mario... yes, he's all mine... Mine, mine, mine!
He was signing my apron for me.
Me at the dinner table with friends and ATTers
Don't know who this lady is but I think she gave Tim this vintage looking case with something neat inside of it because he just lit up like a xmas tree.
