Scrappy hour at Green Tangerines!

Bona, Marie and I hit up Scrappy Hour at Green Tangerines this weekend and boy was it a blast! And let me tell you... when Bona and I discovered what we could do with the Accu-Cut die cutting machine in the store, we were like 2 kids in a candy store! LOL! When Marie arrived, we couldn't wait to share with her what we did!

The core of the time spent at scrappy hour was working on the Challenge LO I gave the girls (oh, and die cutting with the Accu-cut! hahaha!) The challenge was to create an 8x8 lay-out using only the elements I provided in a box. The ladies chose BoBunny for their designer paper. They had such a blast and oh you should have seen Bona's serious scrapper look!! hehehe! She got down and dirty with the distressed embossing powder and inks. Marie's style flaired out when she bust out with the perfect pearls and faux gold techniques! Go Marie! :-)

Below are some of the pix and videos of our scrappy adventure this weekend. We had such a good time and I'm excited to share that with you! Enjoy! hugs, Arlene

Here's what I cut out using the Accu-cut die cutting machine at GT.

Getting set up... hilarious, Bona thought I was taking a pic so she was making sure she was facing at a good angle. lol! Luv ya Bon! hehe! Candid and uncut! Enjoy! :-)

Can you say movie star? lol! Can you say paparazzi? lol!! Again, candid and uncut. So funny! hehe! But don't forget to pick up on the Shimmerz technique, good stuff! :-)
