modern and rustic!

I got an e-mail, asking, if I’d like to teach a few intro classes at the ever so fabulous Minneapolis Photo Center! I thought, nah, I don’t have anything to say. After much hemming and hawing, I committed to doing it! After all…it was 6 months away and I was sure something magical would come into my brain before the date arrived! :) And, I do have to say, it was a complete hit! :)

The vendors met up and we wanted to put something SMASHING together for these classes! Led by designer-extrodionaire Bethany, together Shauna, Melissa and Abby bounced ideas while I just sat there and smiled, knowing that their talents were going to ROCK THE HOUSE! :) We pulled in the modern black and white scheme against the exposed brick and hardwood floor to create a modern event with a rustic flair and a punch of poppy orange! I think they knocked it out of the park!!!! :)
