creating with the canucks!

You don’t know what Canuck means?!

Well, that’s okay because I didn’t know what it meant until earlier this year. When I first met Arantza, more commonly known as Kiki, she would throw around the word Canuck in conversation. She would say it, and her friends would say it. To be quite honest, it baffled me every time I would hear it. Eventually, Kiki enlightened me on the term. It’s just an informal way of saying Canadian. Pretty inventive name, eh? πŸ˜‰

…so why am I talking about Canada?! I’m talking about Canada because I was invited to go to ScrapFest next month!

We just finalized the plans this week, and I’m so thrilled! Want to know what’s going to be the best part about this trip?! I get to spend time with my friend, Kiki!Β  …and yes, this is the Kiki from Kiki Art. She’s so fun to be around, and we are going to have a blast! πŸ™‚

…so if any of my Canadian friends are going to this event, please let me know! I’d LOVE for you to stop by the booth. It would be fun to meet up, eh?! πŸ˜‰

Now, I have to finish a couple of projects I started yesterday. I blame LOST for distracting me from creating!

PS: How awesome is it that I get to travel for scrapbooking?! Seriously, it’s a dream come true! A lot of people can’t say this, but I honestly LOVE LOVE LOVE my job. πŸ™‚
