Woo hoo I am certified...!!!!!!!

I am so happy to say that I am now a Copic Certified Designer. Yay....!!!!
As my fellow teammate said - this would not have been possible if it weren't for Sammi and her great store Mad for Markers. So a big big "Thank You" goes to Sammi - you have made
it possible for me to accomplish one of my dreams since I started using markers.

Today was such a fun day. Marianne Walker is the funniest person and gosh a little crazy LOL.
She is certainly a great teacher and I have a lot of things I need to practice practice.
Unfortunately one of the drawbacks is I now want an air compressor which
costs about $450. Ouch...!!! I think it might be so worth it so now have to save
all my pennies so I can get one. Yay...!!!! Hehehe.

Thought I would show you a few pictures taken today.
Emma, Mandi and Debra.
It was so nice to meet all of these lovelies.
I made a few new friends today too. It was so nice to be in a room full of
all lovers of Copics and people who have so much in common with myself.

Emma, Debra & myself.
Yuck I hate photos of myself. LOL.

Marianne demonstrating light source/ shadow colouring.

It was a fabulous day today and I would also like to thank Lori Craig and Copic Australia
who bought these wonderful trainers here from the US just to teach us plebs. LOL.
"Crikey Stars....!!!!!"
Had to be there today to know what that means.
