Wow! What a whirlwind trip. I’m finally home from an 11 day adventure with some of the most special people in my life – My Splitcoast family. My paper crafting friends. My pride and joy, DH and the girls. It was an incredible time. I’m going to make you suffer with a few of my favorite pictures…and then at the bottom, yep, it’s true, I have a Copic giveaway to celebrate something fun.
I love working with these people. LOVE. Each one loves what they do, and they give it 125% everyday whether it’s customer service emails, projects for clients, projects for the site, our Splitcoast Fan Club, our amazing membership. Really just about anything that involves the incredible Splitcoast community. I don’t even have to name them. I know you know them. I just wanted to get that out there.
Here are most of us playing at Disneyland the weekend after CHA. We were so tired, but had so much fun. Glad our families were able to join us – my hubby is in the gray t-shirt on the right and my darling girls are in the white sweatshirts on the right. Jenn’s sweet, sweet daughter is right between them in the Mickey ears. Daven’s three princess girls are on the left, with Jenn’s prince charming son. Though, we missed Beate (and her family) after we’d sent her home Wednesday morning, we had a blast. I’m grateful for our trip.
So, I’ve made you endure gushing about my family… LOL! Here’s what you probably came by for today.
Didn’t Sharon and Sally Lynn do a great job putting this picture together?

Copic Marker was excited to add Jennie Black to the Copic Certification Instruction team last week. She was surprised and delighted, and the Southwest Region of the US will be well served. It was so fun that the entire team was there at the CHA show. These girls and the Copic staff are so fun to be with. Adore them.
To welcome Jennie’s sparkling personality onto the team we are offering a prize today of a Glitter 12pc set, retail value of over $30. Just leave a comment on my blog and when you’re done, go leave a comment on the other instructor blogs for a chance to win a prize from some of them as well (note: Some posted Tuesday, others are posting today. Read each blog closely to see when prizes are being offered) I will randomly choose a winner from my blog on Friday at 10 am central.
Also on the Copic note, I recently worked with Sharon to come up the colors for our teaching kits. The colors are great starting points. There’s a good variety of colors, in 2 and 3-color blending groups that should just about cover most anything a beginner would need to color. Hope this helps some of you considering the Copic plunge.
