Ranger U....WOW!!!!

 
WOW...just WOW!!!! It all happened so fast. There really needs to be one or two more days added to the curriculum because there is so much to learn and do, and so little time. I liken it to going to Disney World the first time and trying to see and do it all in under a day...it just can't be done, and some parts were just as loud as being on a roller coaster! What a time though! My poor hands feel as if they have a hangover, and they secretly love it! I met some wonderful people as well, and the Ranger staff made us feel like royalty...a total class act!  Let's see if I can remember them all...Tammy, Patti, Rhonda, Christie, Lisa, Carolyn, Noell, Wendy, Mackie, Sue, Tina, Charlotte, Barbara, Tara, Aurea, Krista, Dene, Betty, Christy, Lynn, and the sweet girl from Michael's Craft store, whose name I shall shout out at 3 am after I can't sleep. I even had dinner with her...sorry. I was not fortunate enough to meet the other two...they escaped my path. I guess someone told them I might talk to them.
My little work area and notebook.
Table mates  Sue and Tina, both from New Jersey.
Table mate and new bestie Charlotte from Australia.
Crikey! She was so much fun to hang with!!!
My row of peeps!!!
The whole group.
I'm the one in the very back under the 'a'.
84 techniques made...phew!!!
The new Spring Limited Distress Inks that I got off straight from the conveyor belt after being completed! Now how's that for fresh ink?!? The warehouse/factory tour was my favorite...I was in awe of those machines...wow!!!
I made several of these and attached them to bags of Texas Trash to give away. I am submitting this to Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stamper challenge for "reds". Hels, a former grad, has spurred me on so much during this endeavor of Ranger U! Thank you Hels!!! And so many other blog land babes have as well! Huge thanks being sent to all of you as well!!!
I am also submitting this to Blogger's Challenge for "create your own background". 

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
