DINA!!! ...DINA!!! ...DINA!!

Hello all my D&F friends .....

I don't have much to show you this week! ...NOT!! .. OMG brain overload!
I just spend the last 3 days ... yes 3! .... attending the bestest, most yumminess, totally awesome (yes I said totally) WORKSHOP EVER!!!! ------ DINA WAKLEY -------

I booked into to this event about a year ago, & let me tell you it cost some $$$ to do all 6 classes over 3 days!..... BUT! so very worth every cent & more!
What do I say about Dina! ... there are really no words on how much of a fantastic teacher she is! She is so much FUN & kept it going all weekend! ... OH MY GOD .. I am still coming down from the high!
Friday - Like usual I was LATE! ... I am always late, so I ended up front & centre! ... teacher pet .. lol but in my opinion the best spot! I got to have heaps of little chats with Dina, lots of cheekiness  & laughs. Dina know how to kept her audience engaged which makes the class so magical. Not only that I have learnt so much, my brain has yet to slow down from all the ideas.
I started scrapbooking nearly 14 years ago, started with Creative Memories, to Design Teams, published in a lot of magazines to it completely taking over my life --- Then I got sick, I was sick for a long time --- Scrapping no more until I started back up a couple of years ago. But I never really felt like I was back in the "groove". I have had this little part of me that was still so tight I just couldn't let go, If I did everything would crumble. Until now ...

After the first 3 hours class on Friday, the way she taught, she was fast, fun & pushed us. I stood up & felt the biggest relief , like I have never felt. I really felt happy. You know.
I honestly believe that my art is free.

Just some of the Art we made!
There was so much!!!

Faces Class!!
SO scary .. we had to draw a "loose face ", by
holing just the end of the pencil & using our 
arm to guide... 

A couple of silly shot ... LOVE THEM!!!!!

Two pages I done today!!! 
I think a lot of my work will have a lot of 
"DINA" in them... only until
I get right back into my groove ...

& I won a PRIZE!!!!!

Sorry that was a HUGE post!!

Until next time!

See you
