{She} is inspired

Spent the weekend attending Ranger University with Tim Holtz and Robin Beam.  WOW!!!

Thanks a million to my roomie, Ellen, for putting up with me.  I tend to get CHARGED up on adreneline.  Well duh!

Also met  J’Lo, (still jaw-droppingly inspired by you), Judi (wowzers to you, on your business!!), Kriss (a scrapbooker after my own heart), Lynn (hope you are feeling better soon!), Liz (quiet one, with a LOUD, UNDENIABLE TALENT, Mary Ruth (adorable!),  and — finally face-to-face, rather than just on e-mail.  Oh and one mustn’t forget to mention the ‘Artgirlz‘ – personality PLUS!  I love your joie de vivre.

I didn’t get to spend a lot of time with everyone, but hope to get to know all of you better as we fire up our own Tim Holtz-inspired ‘Journeys’.

On final thing – the following applies to ALL OF YOU, RangerU-ettes.  (sorry, Will!)
