Scrappin' in a Snowstorm

by Shelly March. 08, 2008 346 views

Well, we made it to our scrapbook weekend. Blizzard and all. Actually, it was really a good place to be, because once we were all there, we didn't go out. We just watched the weather from the window. It was such a fun weekend … we got a lot of work done in our albums, we ate well, we laughed so hard – we cried!! We learned new techniques – Kim sewed, I learned about acrylic stamps and we all painted - a lot. We had “circle hour” - everyone created a layout involving circles in some way. Sat evening, after the sun came out - Kim drove us all in her hummer to Outback for dinner … a nice break. Thanks first of all, to our husbands and families for surviving the weekend without us and supporting our hobby. Thanks to my dear friends and “scrappin' buddies' for making time in their lives for all of us to spend together doing something that we all share a passion for. I love each of you.
Make sure that each of you continues ”cuttin' pictures" … keep that momentum rolling!!

I know this may look bad, but …. We took full advantage of the happy hour included with our room and, being scrapbookers, we had to make sure we had fun pictures to work with. :) That's my story and I'm sticking to it! :) The last picture is of our cocktails at Outback …… Mmmm, good stuff. :)

This was our set-up …….. a girl has to have choices, now doesn't she?!? I counted up my pages ….. 15 completed pages with 2 more that I didn't quite get finished, but only have to put on the finishing touches. A lot of fun and scrapbooking was had by all. Thanks again girls ….. can't wait until we can get together again!! Bonnie, you're my hotel queen - can you book all my hotel stays in the future? You really know how to negotiate!! Thanks for all your work.
