Crop Weekend .... Gratitude #12 Guilt-free relaxation

The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.
~Bertrand Russell

My gals and I had our annual scrapbook crop this weekend. Fri, Sat and part of Sun - we sit down and scrapbook and do little else. Except eat. And get the sillies. Some people may consider it a waste of time. I consider it a blessing to spend these wonderful hours with treasured friends while we work on our scrapbooks. A hobby for which we all have a passion.

My gratitude for the week #12 is the oppertunity for this guilt-free relaxation. And guilt-free is the key word in that statement. My hubby and kids hold the fort down at home while I'm away enjoying myself ….. and when I return, all is well with the world, they're happy to see me and they're anxious to see what I got done in the scrapbook. If I returned home to guilt and stress it would certainly take away some of the fun of the weekend. Thanks Scott, Garrett, Carter, Jackson and Alayna ……. I appreciate your time and work to keep things up around the house this weekend and I love you for making it possible for me to get away.

A toast to friendship, basic grey paper and glimmer mist!

Bonnie works on a layout …… looks like she has some cricut letters on this one and is that a xyron machine in her lap? Oh no …

Kim puts some finishing touches on her double layout.

Karen and I collapse after a rousing leapfrog adventure and turtle races down the hotel hallway. She kicked my butt in the turtle race, man I must have weak arms.

Awesome time for you all. You are so lucky to have such great friends and family to be able to do this. And what is a turtle race? haha

I am sad I missed it. Not sure when I will feel up to doing that again, but I know my mom would want me to. I guess I better get caught up on weeks worth of my blog that I keep avoiding too.

Was that fun or what??? I got so many pages done - unusual for me - but the ideas just kept flowing. Great time, great friends, great food - just a wonderful, relaxing time - thanks for letting me be a part of it!!
