I am now Copic Certified!! YAY!!!

The very first Aussie Certification course took place today!! YAY!!! HUGE THANKS to those who made it happen and particularly to Jacqui and Jonny from XPress GraphX - Copic Australia!!

It was great!! I will keep this brief as I am really exhausted... but wanted to post up some piccies before I go to bed.. am in Adelaide again for the rest of my holiday.. so I apologise if I have not emailed you back or been around your blogs... that's Monday's job!! :D

I was so excited when I heard Marianne Walker was coming out to do Certification and there was no way I was going to miss that!! :D

It was lovely to meet the gorgeous Michey - a fellow blogger who lives 5 mins away from me I found out today!! We're going to have to have a colouring date!!! we also got to meet Sue W which was great and Kerrie (but I did not manage to get a photo of those two lovely ladies).

Another highlight was meeting the delightful Jodie Turner - Jodie from Oz... and seeing her work first hand - she is just lovely - and so talented!!

and of course, I also got to meet the very lovely Kylie Kueter - I'm thrilled to have her on my Design Team for Mad for Markers and am very much looking forward to seeing more of her wonderful creations. Kylie, Jodie and I all sat on the same table which was great.. along with Chris from Copic (Xpress GraphX) and two other lovely ladies!

Here is Jodie and Kylie (at the end of the day)...

It was also awesome to meet Lori Craig (who came out to help run the course)! Both Lori and Marianne were really delightful :D....

although Marianne is a little crazy :D hehe... colouring her wedding ring green....

and streaking her hair too...

A whole world of Copic ideas opened up to me today. lol!! Anyway.. will maybe give you other info later but right now... I'm off to bed.... to dream of compressers....... oh, just before I go.. here is Marianne signing my certificate! YAY!!! :D
