Day 280 – Spraguefest 2011

October 7, 2011

Tony and I arrived last night and walked a little bit on the Las Vegas Strip.  We are staying at the Flamingo hotel and I took this photo of the neon sign outside.  This has to be one of the best pictures I have ever taken.  I can thank Candice Stringham and the things I learned in her classes at    We got to meet Jessica tonight and Candice, and Carina Gardner and others at the reception.  It was so nice meeting some of the community of people that I’ve been talking to over the last 2 years.


Day 275 – ATC

October 2, 2011

I’m getting ready to go to Las Vegas this week on Thursday for the 4th Annual Spraguefest.  What’s a Spraguefest you ask?  It’s a gathering of the Jessica Sprague community.  Jessica Sprague has an online website where you can take fantastic classes online…and the community is friendly and very supportive.  Jessica teaches digi scrapbooking, photo editing, hybrid classes and teaches classes on Photoshop.  This will be my first Spraguefest…and Tony is going with me.  We are going to be trading Artist Trading Cards (ATC) and I made two versions to share with the other crafters there.  I did not make the background papers….they are from a group of papers that were supplied for one of the classes were are doing in Vegas, but I did make the halftone brush that’s in the background upper left corner.  On the back of each ATC I have put my name, user ID for the Jessica Sprague website, blog address and email contacts.  CLICK TO ENLARGE PHOTO
