One of the things I love about papercrafting is the opportunity to share with those with the same passion … Every encounter is an amazing opportunity to learn new things and to meet beautiful talented people.
Today I’m sharing a 3 minutes video clip with my memories of ” The Coloring Challenge Road Trip” held in Edinburgh 2 days ago ( August 7 -2017).
I didn’t want to disturb anyone in the event so I just tried to preserve some memories in short videos. I have put some of them together to remember and to share a little bit with you. Testimonies are confidential except those I got permission to share.
And forgive my grammar as my hubby didn’t have a minute to proofread my post :(English is not my first language (I’m Spanish Speaker)
Edinburgh was hot, my hair was curling up. I was looking as if a tornado just passed over me as I haven’t sleep well due to motherhood and I got the cold but nobody could stopped me to go and gather together with such talented bundle of people … I’m so grateful.
In the picture: Cal Shrive and her little daughter Charlotte, Lucy Angelis ( believe it or not Lucy came from Minnesota !!) Kathy Racoosin, Katya , Morag Drummon and Debby Hughes.
We all agree that stamping and coloring make us happier and it have helped us to go through maternity, illness, loneliness, housewifery. For many of us is also a wee home based business, some of us do it just for fun.. But we all just love it!
There is something magic about stamping as it is great cure for the soul.
We had an amazing day sharing with Kathy and Debby, which are in my opinion two of the best stampers in the word. Their work is AMAZING!!! and pictures in their blog could never tell how beautiful their creations are. I’m so lucky to have seen them in flesh.

Interested. check out more info here! I hope is ok to share this info here but I just feel that my american and canadian friends could have a chance to join her in her Coloring Challenge Road trip and meet her! WOW she is a great host, she is very generous, full of positive vibes… she is simply an amazing human bean.
I analysed all my options. I counted the pennies…. Not trains, not plane offered return tickets the same day fromInverness to Edinburgh! Nooo… I wasn’t keen to drive neither as it will take me 4 hours drivingeach way and I was very short of sleep as Imentioned before.
I also traveled with the fear of being coughing during the whole event as I did .lol
Anyway.. my solution was then using for very first time the Megabus. Leaving at 6:40am returning home at midnight. For very first time I used the transportation system and I can’t complain about it. I picked up my car from the bus station parking and arrived home at 11:45pm
I hope you enjoy the little story and the video . I also hope you find it inspiring crafting is for everyone. Beat the fear ti share your creations and lets share on social network
Sending love and hugs…
