It's Hot and It Is Humid but no Irene Here Just Dirt

Yesterday, I took a class at Tina's home. It was a fun lots to try, experiment and learn class. Tina created a 8x12 album with lots of different techniques for us to try. Her goal was to show us that there is a million things you can do and use that you already have lying around. And yes I have lots of millions of things lying around my house.
Tina always goes way out to ensure not only do we learn but we are treated to her famous decor or themed events and yummy food. Her choice was perfect for the muggy muggy hot day. We were transformed into an island paradise with the most scrumptious food to sustain us as we created. The day was relaxed and we all enjoyed trying stamp carving (I am horrible at it) painting with different objects and lots and lots of visiting. I did manage to complete my cover and a few of the pages but will post pics of my album when it is completed.
To round off our day we were again treated to another round of wind dust and NO RAIN, although I hear some were lucky enough to get a few drops.
Busy week coming up so without going on about that here are a few of the many pics from the day
We arrived to a tropical themed paradise

Looking highly likely that we are in for another dust storm or maybe said with fingers crossed some rain. Not to promising on the rain but one can hope
