Nick having fun with the camera!!

Just wanted to let you know about my day this past Thursday. Dan Coffey from Pie Town Productions, cameraman, from Rate My Space (the television show on HGTV)flew out from California to shoot my Scrapbooking Studio for their show!!!! How exciting it was, he was absolutely wonderful and cute as a button. The shoot went well, Dan thought it went excellant. He estimated to be here from 10 am until 4 0r 5 pm, and we were done at 1pm. He said it was one of the easiest shoots he had done and actually enjoyed his visit here to Florida. What a nice guy, Nick, (my son,pictured) of course was fascinated with the whole shoot and was in awe of Dans camera the whole time. Dan was tickled about Nicks interest and enthusiasm and asked Nick if he wanted to play with the camera, of course Nick was so excited, Dan gave him a blank dvd tape to keep, gave him a few pointers on the cameras operation and Nick went to town!!! Nick has his certification in TV production and has used this type of camera before, but this one was the creme de la creme of cameras. He was in awe!!! We played it back on our HD TV and what a great picture!!! So with all this done, Dan said the episode will air some time in May on HGTV, as the construction in the homeowners room is currently under way, and after it airs the Producers will send me my very own copy...What a fun day, I hope my hair looked XXXOOO

Sugar & Spice

Lets see if there are any techniques I can share about this LO. To make the butterfies, I used Martha Stewarts butterfly stamp and with some Perfect Medium, stamped it on transparancy. I then embossed it with black embossing powder. If you are quick and careful,your transparancy wont warp. Then using Tim Holtz gold alcohol ink, I covered the back of the butterfly, then embellished it with Scribbles dimensional paint or liquid pearls. I bent the wings up a little before adhering to LO. The possibilities are endless!!
