Vicki Boutin Rocks!

Regs and I went to Vicki Boutin's Scenic Route Mini book class at the Scrapping Turtle on Saturday! Super fun! Not only was the book gorgeous we walked away with lots of extra chipboard embellishments, die cut stickers, paper, it was awesome! Vicki is super kewl and gives a great class, we had lots of time to chat and we even learned some major new techniques! Can you stop the tissue paper... btw this looks like a coaster book but it is so not... it is 6" diameter and it was precovered with the gragh paper and super cheap and available in all different shapes.

I always see on other peoples blog where they post pics of them and the kewl people from scrap world! Here is mine...
