Frenzied Fun Times!

Frenzied Fun Times!
So last Thursday night I taught my first class at the
faboo "Frenzy Stamper" store in the hub of Old Town Scottsdale.
I love this store and I love its owner.
The thing I love most is the eye candy in this store.
As soon as you walk in it spins you around.
Gets your creative energy jumping like pop rocks.
You know... "pop rocks" the candy that explodes in your mouth.
According to American Folklore the candy that supposedly
ruined the life of the kid that played Mikey in the "Life" cereal commercials.
Debbie the owner has the best damn selection of stamps on
this side of the Grand Canyon- hands down.
When I get a craving for darker stamps and gothic imagery-
This store can satisfy on those darker desires (
also the not so dark images).
As a matter of fact... last week... she got in my favorite stamp
in the whole damn world " the laughing demon".
I remember hunting long and hard a few years ago for this stamp.
I also love this classroom.
Great size and layout.
Plus all the stamps, stamps, and stamps.
Did I mention her stamps?

It was a damn fine class. A great group of ladies!
The projects turned out fantastic.
Great layouts, good storytelling, and strong colors.
"Thanks" for allowing me to teach at your store Debbie!
"Thank you" ladies for allowing me to share with you all.
