Let's Talk Tuesday: Embossing Folders Scrapinar

A few months ago I set a goal to be a teacher in the scrapbooking industry. I've been working (mostly behind the scenes) on this goal. Today I'm one step closer to that goal. Tonight I will be teaching a scrapinar with Lain Ehmann from Layoutaday.com on embossing folders. I've been working on this project for a very long time.

I took an entire Saturday and devoted it filming for this project. My hubby helped me set everything up, he helped me film, and he did most of the video editing. I love that guy! He's always supportive of my shenanigans. I know he never thought that he'd be editing videos and helping with scrapbooking projects. He does it like a pro though. Did I mention that I love that guy?!?! 

I thought that I'd give you a little peek at what went on behind the scenes. My entire living room was converted to, well, a giant mess with one spot that was clean and well lit for filming.
Here's a sneak peek of a project I'll be showing you tonight at the scrapinar:
 You must preregister for this event. There's still time! Go here and follow the easy steps to get registered. Make sure to say "hello" tonight. I'm so nervous!!! I'd love to see some friendly blogging faces in the crowd tonight. 
See you tonight!

The First Day of School & Bella Blvd

Hello, it's Monday and for us that means the first day of school (for my little girlie, the boy starts tomorrow). I was caught off guard when I got a lump in my throat when I kissed her on the cheek as she ran into her class. She's been so excited for this day and so have I. I didn't think I would have even a moment of sadness. The truth is, I'm going to miss having her around all day. She's such a sweet, happy, easygoing, little girlie. She's also a great helper! I've found myself looking at the clock wondering what she's doing and waiting for the time when I get to go get her. I can't wait to hear about her day, it's her first day in a new school and I know she'll have great stories to tell me at the end of her school day! Tomorrow her big brother will be joining her at school. I will finally have 2 kiddos in the same school! That, my friends, is cause for celebration!
On to scrapbooking news...I have a layout on the Bella Blvd blog today. I'm not sure how it happened but I totally missed this assignment. I didn't write it on my schedule, nothing. I just completely over looked it. I was mortified when I got the email asking where my project was...yikes! So, needless to say I finished this project within a few hours. It's a good thing I love Bella's products and they're so easy to work with. Have I mentioned before that I LOVE Bella Blvd? I especially love their Halloween lines, probably because I love Halloween ;)
 In my world this is one of the very few acceptable uses for the color purple on a scrapbook page. I don't love purple but it somehow works for Halloween.
 The new chipboard is adorable!! I love chipboard!

Have a great Monday! Come back tomorrow for #letstalktuesday.
