Meeting Amy

Well hello
Happy Sunday to you all and happy NSD or interNSD if you are a scrapbooker.

If you follow my Instagram you will know that Traceyand I had the pleasure of meeting Amy Tan on Tuesday and I may or may not have got a little bit excited. Okay, no, little bit, very excited. Amy and Shimelle are my scrapping inspiration. (Who are yours?) so there was no way I was going to miss this event. I was like a fourteen year old meeting Justin Beiber without the screaming.
So here is my LO



Amy was wonderful and so down to earth, having her photo taken a gazillion times was no trouble. There was also a make and take but as their was only three of us in the second group (yahoo for us)we got to sit up close and personal with Amy where we could chat so I didn't do much making and taking. Geez I sound like a stalker.

I was embarrassed/angry/appalled that Spotlight had a famous (hugely famous in America) artist visiting their store and there we sat IN THE AISLE in the aisle, I kid you not. What happened to a nice little room or even a corner decorated with Amy Tangerine merchandise and don't get me started on the merchandise I was ready to buy the whole entire line of Yes Please which has been out for months and na nothing, zip, nilch, zero not here yet.
No worries I will wait until it comes here.

So there we have it, Amy made my routine week into a very happy excited over the top week and in case you haven't guessed it I am still EXCITED.

Ah Spotlight...that is very embarrassing, but not unexpected. I guess in the end it didn't really matter...you got to meet Amy!

Are you sure you didn't let out a scream or two... I too enjoyed meeting her so much but loved the fact that I got to share this with you. You really were so excited and it was so fun to be included. Love the layout and totally agree about the whole Spotlight thing.
My idols, without a doubt Ali Edwards, Elizabeth Kartchner, Marcy Penner and Amy Tan.
Love me :-)

LOOOOOOVE THIS LAYOUT!!! I'm sooooo happy that you got to meet Amy Tan, I know you have loved her!! How exciting to actually meet her and talk and get pictures. She is a sweetie!

I almost got to meet Rachael Ray, waited in line for over an hour to be told time was up for her and she could only see the next 2 people ahead of me. WHAT??!! Was so sad after all that wait I didn't get to talk to her.

I would rather meet one of our celebrity scrapbookers then any movie star. There would be screaming and jumping coming from me too.

Too bad about Spotlight, they should have rolled out the red carpet and a nice comfy chair for her. So happy for you Linda and for Tracey!

I do love your layout!
