Copic Certification in Australia

Me & Marianne, looks like Marianne is still a little jet lagged
I'm a little late posting my exciting news, last Thursday I was one of the lucky one's to take part in the very first Copic Certification Course in Australia with the Copic gurus of the world, Marianne Walker & Lori Craig. XPress GraphX - Copic Australia flew the girls all the way from the USA to run two Certification training sessions, one in Sydney on May 6 and the other in Melbourne May 8. They are only here for a very short time, and will be training our very own Debra James as a Regional Trainer for Western Australia & some other Ladies for other parts of Australia to run all future Certification Training in Australia.

Marianne Walker (I Like Markers), Jonny (XPress GraphX) and Lori Craig (Splitcoast Stampers) 

The other highlight of my day was to meet the gorgeous Kylie a fellow Design Team member for Tickled Pink Stamps, her creations are amazing and Sammi from Mad for Markers, a Copic on-line store,  in person today! Thanks Kylie and Sammi, you made my day so much fun and even more special.

I thought I would share a few photos of the day, apologies for the quality & I certainly wasn't looking my best with only 4 hours sleep, it was a huge day after my early start getting up 4.30am , but anyways the photos are a bit fun.

Sammi, Kylie & Me

 Marianne, why not colour your hair with Copics!!!!!!!!!

and here Marianne is colouring her hair a nice shade of hot pink

Marianne is so talented, a little crazy, which made for a very fun day.

I'm with Debbie and Barb. I don't think you needed any lesson at all (shouldn't you be teaching them instead...hmmm?). Anyway congrats on the certification. Looks like you had lots of fun. Can't wait to see what you will come out with next. I'm sure your work will me more amazing than ever.
