Glenda's Random Amusing Challenge #32 and the last of A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA

Hope everyone had a fabulous A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA. It was my first time teaching for this fabulous event - looking forward to more next year! Note to self... try not to travel for my day job right before A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA, makes things a little hectic. My normally organized self (no comments from Victoria Reeve allowed!) was feeling a little disorganized at my classes yesterday but I think everyone had fun! I taught two classes at Crafty Capers - Wonderful Winter Wishes and A Muse Interactive. After some confusion as to when the class actually started... the day went well! In the first class I had Bianca, Alli, Kim, Sheila, Michelle, Harpreet, Lucille, Kathy and Lorri. Unfortunately, we had a a few "escapees" before this photo was taken so in this photo is Lucille (first time - thanks for coming!), Kathy (a regular and my saviour -you're the best), Harpreet (first time - thanks for coming!), Michelle (another regular - great to see you), Alli and Kim (both first-timers and celebrities - more in a moment!)

Found out that Alli and Kim are both celebrities! Alli Miles is an illustrator for Paper Trey Ink. Kim Teasdale is a member of the Splitcoast Stampers Dirty Dozen and member of the Clear Dollar Stamps Design Team. Hope you had fun ladies - it was great to have you there. Here's Alli and I together. Thanks for the tips on fixing my punch Alli!

In the second class, where we made some fun interactive cards, were Alli (missing from the photo), Loretta, Sue, Kathy, Joanne, Lorri (thanks for your help!) and Victoria (owner of Crafty Capers, recovering from surgery - get better soon!). All of these ladies have been in my classes before (except Victoria) so thanks for coming again - hope you enjoyed it! Crafty Capers is moving to a new location soon - be sure to check it out!

Now on to the Random Amusing Challenge for the week. With the fabulous new A Muse holiday stamps you've scooped up, make a brown and blue holiday card. My example is a card we did yesterday as well as Tuesday at Scrappers' Anonymous. You can use whatever stamps you want, just try to have a little something from A Muse if you can. If you upload to Splitcoast Stampers, use the keyword GRAC32. Thanks to Kerry for playing along last week. Hope you get a chance to play along with the challenge - I know everyone's been busy with summer and A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA (players have been dwindling - that's ok - I'll deal with it somehow Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net) so am going to run this challenge for two weeks.

I actually have some time off so looking forward to relaxing a bit over the next two weeks. Got a new camera so am looking forward to playing with it (as I was yesterday!). Hope your summer is fabulous! Enjoy your new A Muse stamps! Hope you can be creative this week... in some small way. Glenda

Card details:
