What a PICKLEICIOUS Weekend!!!

This was the weekend that 5 Rusty Pickle Chefs and Mr. Pickle himself (owner, Lance Anderson) took over Ever After Scrapbook for a weekend of classes, Make and Takes, the Saturday night crop and a TON of fun!!! I was one of the Chefs in attendance at the SOLD OUT crop on Saturday night and I created and taught my VERY FIRST MAKE AND TAKE!!! You can see a picture of it here... using cardboard boxes from Costco, I made these table decor items for your annual Santa Picture. I also taught the scrappers how to easily turn my make and take into a mini album to house ALL of their annual pictures! Great way to watch the kids (and Santa) grow up!!! :-)

I had a great time chating with the Chefs (Ann, Candice, Kristan, and Casey), telling stories, sharing secrets and getting to know them all better! Links to each of the talented ladies' blogs are listed on the panel to the right. I also had the opportunity to crash Lance's class on Sunday and watch the pro teach. As a new teacher, it was great to pick up some tips from Lance and learn how to handle different situations as they come up in a class!! (Thanks, Lance!)

Thanks to Candice for organizing such a great weekend and to Camille (owner of Ever After) for the wonderful goodie bags that she gave to each Chef for participating in the event!! What a GREAT way to start December and the holiday season!!!
