Prima Shuffle Album w/Marion (Photo Heavy)

{Warning: 'Big Time' photo heavy.. don't know what to say other than .. too fun!!!}

 Today's post is a PHOTO blog of a Scrapbooking Hop + Prima Class from this weekend at a fun scrapbooking store called "Remember When" in Valenica, CA. {I love getting out and exploring new scrapbook stores and this one didn't disappoint! If your in the area .. its a "must check it out"!}

And BONUS: Marion at a Piece of Craft (LiveWithPrima) was there the whole weekend doing mini albums and technique classes! I was fortunate enough and grab a spot on Saturday for the Prima Shuffle Album! :) Here's how that went:

A picture of Marion's Prima Shuffle Album
and Marion was the sweetest ever!! Thanks Marion for the great class !! I Love Prima :)

We received a super prettyShuffle Mini Album kit filled with the latest Prima flowers, papers, chipboard pieces, bling, stamps, flourishes, etc. !! Here's some of the flowers.. I love prima flowers. Yikes!!

The Prima papers were *GORGEOUS* and lots of fibers to play with!

I finally got my shuffle album bound .. I fell a bit behind the class ..shhh.. secret: I got a little too eager to get a little shopping done!

AND when I returned this is what I had missed....

Whoa! this is a pict of the *AFTERMATH*... everyone glimmer misted, painted, chalked their white Prima flowers up! LOVE IT! Tattered Angels gave us some CRAZY BEAUTIFUL NEW COLORS!! It was like a glimmer mist ***FRENZY*** I wish I would have got a pick of the ladies in action at this table!! 

I don't know who's mini's these were.. but I loved the Prima ribbon pom pom's hanging out the edges!!

again.. don't know who's flowers...but so super *PRETTY*!  {Background.. Marion's mic!}

BONUS: I ran into some scrappy YouTube Gals!! :) YES, they are just as amazing and super sweet in person!! HI - Tracy (L), Karla (R) ;) 

... yikes!! More gorgeous flowers laying around waiting for some more sparkle! ...
ACTUALLY .. She was drying them when I took this pict.. she just eyeballed me and didn't flinch! lol

Hey! I caught Tracy taking a pict of me! *SNAP* I took one too! :) and then I noticed her super cute apron!! HELLO!! I had to take a closer look!! Heck yes, I took a pict for you all to see .. 

She DID!!Yep, she MADE THIS SUPER CUTE APRON with her own hands.. isn't is stunning gorgeous!!?? Love it!! :)
