Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I had a magic time at Bonzers and met everyone I could of wished to meet and squidged all those I promised to squidge. My classes went well (only one woman walked out cos she was an advanced scrap-a-roo and my classes were beginners). To be honest I didnt really want to teach beginner classes BUT it was lovely to be able to share ideas with newbies and have fun giggling and munching throughout the classes. And yes - to confirm to 3 of my emails this avvo, I fainted. I'd had 4 hours sleep that night, 5 hours the night before and was running around like a mad scrapper high on diamond glaze. Id been teaching twice that morning and subsequently went shopping in the sweltering shopping hall for some goodies for the "changing pages" challenge when I mentioned to Anna that I felt a bit funny. Next thing I know...... swooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon. Thanks for catching me Anna and Jo (NOT!!) as I lay on the floor wondering if I had fainted or just collapsed or died. Oooooo the shame of everyone staring - it made me cry and I begged Anna to tell everyone to go away cos they were staring (naturally ... I do!) That was worse than fainting (never fainted before - its quite exciting in hindsight!). Fortunately for me - Lemon was my wee angel and the one I absolutley insist on bringing me "round"in future. 5 minutes later Im getting my blood sugar and pressure checked. I was fine. Well, I must have been cos I was teaching 20 minutes later with 3 classes back to back. I loved it.
I finally met Annie who I have to say is just gorgeous. She was sharing a room with Mad Mandi whose classes were complete fabulousness. We all stepped in for Claire Camerons classes at very short notice and both Annie and I were given the extra SEI classes. Almost everyone had a real grumble about it because there was no technique but I thought it was FABBO. Basically it was a fully prepared kit to build an entire 8x8 album in an hour - achievable cos I did one that very morning, in 35 minutes! However, I think either Mandy or Annie or Anna or Suzanne has it so own up dudes ... I gave it to you by mistake!
I also got to meet Jane Dean for the very first time. We crossed on the stairs and I instantly recognised her! That cheered me up as I was feeling a wee bit rough. We walked to Dyans class and everyone was staring at Jane - this woman is plastered all over Scrapbook Inspirations - her work is scrummylish. It was like walking with royalty!
I never took any pics of my classes and I really wished I had. Anna has the best photos so Im waiting for copies to put on here. I wanted to meet absolutely everyone but time was insufficient. If i didnt recognise you can I just say that I was in a daze and feeling a little unwell. I was bloated, a bit nauseous but I had a bloody good time! Who needs to sleep anyway? I can do that when Im 6 feet under xxxxx
