Tootfest 2007!!!!

We had a fabulous time this weekend at Tootfest 2007!!! We all beat the weather odds and made it to the hotel.......which was fabulous mostly for the big table in our room. We were all able to gather around and create! Pictured above is Beth working on a journal cover. She showed a really cool way to cover the journal with precisely measured scraps of paper. Totally great!
Jane made this wonderful collage and then covered it with beeswax per the wonderful Kim!
Here are some of the most wonderful projects done by Trish (AKA Trixie). These are gorgeous!
Here is a picture of our table in use!!
Here Kim and I are going through our many vintage pictures that give us inspiration!

We had a perfect weekend of bonding, eating good food, drinking good drinks, making cool art, shopping for antiques and supplies, and just generally girlfriending!!!! Perfect weekend!!! I am ready to do it again!!!!!!
