Spellbinders 2008 Design Team Retreat-Part 3

Ok are you ready to hear about the HUGE surprise the DT had when we were on our retreat?? I'm sure by now most of you have heard about Copic markers, they are one of the hottest things on the market right now for paper crafting. As part of our training we were lucky to have been given the opportunity for a spectacular training session with Marianne Walker!! Marianne is a wonderful graphic artist and product specialist for Copic. She spent Friday and Saturday training us on the Copic markers and airbrush system. It was so fantastic and she showed a variety of techniques that can be achieved with the Copic markers. Marianne was so wonderful and had such patience with all of us and our questions!! Copic and Marianne were extremely generous with the products that the Design Team was given!! Copic markers and Spellbinders are the perfect combination since the Spellbinders dies can also be used as stencils they work great with the Copic markers & Airbrush System! Also a HUGE THANKS to Marianne for our training!! I am now a Copic Certified Designer!!

I have received several emails over the past few days requesting to see more pictures of all the new and fun goodies we were given so I made a slide show if you would like to see more.

One of the best parts about this whole adventure, besides all the sweet goodies, it getting to meet so many wonderful and very talented people!! Here are some more pictures from our retreat if you would like to take a closer look. Thanks again to Stacey & Jeff Caron for such an extraordinary time!!!
