I'm back!

Well, I am back and somewhat rested! The crop went well, and I broke my record AND my self-proclaimed scrapbookers block. We got a little mixed up on the way there and almost missed dinner....gasp! But they found some extra plated for us and we scarfed that food down like there was no tomorrow. Chicken and gravy, rolls, wild rice, and steamed veggies...chocolate mousse for dessert. Mmmmm...

After dinner, we headed over to the scrapbooking area to get unloaded and get to work. There were a good amount of people there, but we managed to find a table next to two very nice ladies. Deetra was off and moving right out of the gates. I don't even think I had picked out the paper for my first page before she announced that she had finished her first. But that's ok...as I've said before, I know that I am a bit slower at this scrapbooking thing than most...but I am just taking my time and trying to enjoy it!

It took me a while to get going, but once I did...I was doing great! I finally got Noah's album started (poor kid...almost 3 and not one page in his book!)...not in order, though! Don't go gettin' ahead of yourself and thinking that! No, I didn't start with his birth or anything like that. Just some random pictures of he and Sheri playing piano last year. Although, at one point in the evening I did do his 2nd birthday...so there's a milestone captured! HA!!!

Around 12:30 or so, Deetra was getting tired (and who could blame her, the way she was turning out pages? I was just startin' to get into my groove!) Anyway, we headed over to get some shut-eye. However, that was a laughing matter, literally! There was a girl in our room who had gone over to sleep earlier and she was snoring to beat the band! Deetra's mom kept giggling, which made us giggle. Then I couldn't focus on anything BUT her snoring. I was wide awake!!! Well, shit. I finally just decided to get up and go back over to the crop. I was just laying there awake anyway...might as well be productive! So I went back over, did a couple of pages, and came back around 3:30 am.

Saturday was productive as well, though I must say I wasn't very impressed with breakfast. I'm not sure the eggs WERE eggs...(if you're pickin' up what I'm layin' down...) The pancakes were just alright, but the spiced apples were good. Lunch was broccoli cheese soup, bosco bread sticks and salad, and some big apple filled pastry thing for dessert. Let's just say we did NOT go hungry!

Anyway, I won't post all the loveliness here (just in case some of you aren't interested), but if you want to see the pages, just click here. Happy now, Logzie??? ;0)

Lots of good stuff. You really cranked out lots of pages. Like the friends page a lot. Laughed when I saw the Broadway at the Beach pictures. I've only seen in massive rain. So that's what it really looks like!

Rock on sister!!!! I wish I could've been there with you guys. I did two pages last night...I know what your thinking...you slacker! Remember, it's my creative outlet, not my full time job. Anyway, I love your hair short and sassy. Talk to you soon...Amy
