It has been awhile since I embossed anything, so I pulled out the craft heater, black embossing powder, and the Hero Alphabet to create my title. I also used the Art Philosophy cartridge and Dimensional Elements Numbers to create the date. I really appreciate that CTMH prints the size to set the Cricut directly on the packaging for the dimensional elements (and stamp sets). It makes it so easy to cut the perfect size every time!
I’m applying to teach at Convention this year, and I almost didn’t want to send this layout because I wanted to keep looking at it. I will get it back, but, if I don’t get selected, I won’t see it again until July! I wish these photos were better. Oh well.
“Every time I look at this photo from the 2011 Emerald City Comicon, I’m struck by the similarities in our features. This could be a photo of us posing with our favorite uncles. Yet, here we are with Jonathan Frakes & Brent Spiner. I’ve met them both at previous cons, but this was the first time I paid for a photo…it was totally worth it. After the picture was shot, I turned to Brent and said, “The first time we met, you shook my hand; may I have a hug this time?” He responded, “I thought that’s what we just did.” I grinned and said I wanted a real one and moved in for a full frontal hug. He looked at Neal over my shoulder and said, “She gets what she wants, doesn’t she?” Yes, I do!“
