Lots & Lots of Fun Stuff Here...

Warning: I have a lot to blog about today! 
Most of you know about grab one of my new a badges for your blog & several of us here at Nikki Sivils will be picking blogs randomly to give a prize too if they have one of the new badges posted! (Same thing with Facebook, use it as your profile picture and we'll be picking winners randomly.) We'll be picking winners until I leave for CHA! I'll email you through your blog or leave you a message on FB! I've picked 6 ladies so far and mailed their packages to them last week! So keep a watch out for me... 
Here are the badges again...






Yesterday was "Nikki Sivils Day" at my local scrapbook store, Scrapbook Generation, they host this event twice a year before CHA and this is where I debut two of my paper lines that will be released after CHA! I host 4 mini classes where anyone can come by take the mini class and play with my 2 new paper lines! We have so much fun and its all free! I had Heather (my graphic bee) along with Katrina Hunt and Karen Taylor, my local DT gals, with me all day helping out with the mini classes!
Here are the complete collections of the 2 papers that debuted yesterday...
Max & Mollie 
It's Raining, It's Pouring

Here are some pictures of our fun day yesterday...

This sweet cutie-pie was my youngest crafter ever! Her grandma helped her with her card but she picked out all the goodies to put on it!
Playing with my paper....
We had a dessert buffet that ran all day long! 
Heather and I
Heather, Katrina and I
Karen and I
My LSS is the home of Allison Davis sketch books! (This is the only picture I had of the big sign for her sketches.)
They also moved into a huge new store just days before hosting my day.
Its such an awesome store, if you are ever in Springfield Mo you have to make this one of your "must see" stops! 

I'm teaching at a store in LA, Pages of the Heart, a couple of days before CHA, all the information is below. If you live in the area I'd love to have you in my class! I'll be using my brand new paper line
Its Raining, It's Pouring for the class project, a 2 page layout and a card. 
The layout was designed by Liz Qualman one of my DT Diva's! 

That's it for today! 
I'm off now to work on CHA goodies! 
Have a great Sunday! -Nikki
