Tim Holtz "Artful Flight" Class - Sydney 2012

Well, Mandy & I have just experienced something that we never thought possible - we met Tim Holtz! We attended the Artful Flight class that was instructed by the man himself! A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

In the lead-up to the class Mandy & I decided to ink, spray, stamp & embellish the heck out of some white aprons which we wore on the day. Tim was so impressed by them both, so much so that he asked Mandy if they could take a photo to show Dyan Reavely as Mandy's apron was sprayed with her Dylusions! How A-M-A-Z-I-N-G was that!!! You can see both aprons in the pics below.

After a few days of rain and cold weather, the sun finally shone on our day!!! We set off early to ensure we knew where we were going so we didn't miss out!

Shasz (daughter number 2) drove, whilst Mandy & I took multiple pics on our phones of the scenery and the sign posts giving us the kilometres remaining to get to our destination. We posted these pics on Twitter where our online craft friends were sharing our adventure with us all the way! Yes, a few of them stayed up till the wee hours of the night to ensure they didn't miss out on any surprises we might have tweeted. They even made sure that all our tweets were saved and emailed to me so that I can use them to tell the story in a mini album! How cool is that!

Well, there was a surprise, I asked Tim if he could possibly say Hi to our twitter friends who were following our adventure and he didn't hesitate. He is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! He is a genuine, down-to-earth guy. Our expectations were met and then some!

So here are a few pics of our A-M-A-Z-I-N-G day with the master himself!
