I'm home!

Hi honey, I'm home!

Oh my gosh - we had the most fantastical amaze-a-lazy time this weekend.  We went to a friend of my up-line's lake house in East Texas for FREE (always a great price) and had so much fun!

Jenifer and Becky scrapped their little hearts out.  Both DOUBLED their goals in number of pages completed and they did some fabulous pages!  And yes, they did follow my "Get a Ton Done" advice and it worked for them.  Whew, I was gonna feel really bad if I had given bad advice. 

Eileen colored images and glittered and did "finishing touches" on our projects (her special talent is adding that perfect touch of glitz).  But most importantly Eileen COOKED.  Oh my gawd did we eat well!!! - we planned on staying in our pj's on Saturday and I was so glad because there was more room with the elastic waist pj's than in my jeans!

Awesome food and we found an awesome radio station out there in the boonies for our background music.  We had PERFECT weather for our departure on Friday morning - rain on Saturday (perfect for staying in and scrapping) - and SNOW on Sunday for our trip home.  Packing up the vehicles in blowing snow was NOT perfect, but the roads were just wet and it was beautiful so I can't even complain about that.

I got so much punching done!  That is right punch fans, I did not scrapbook - I did punch art ALL weekend (when I wasn't playing cards or drinking margaritas) - I have TONS of cute stuff to show you over the next few weeks.

Here is where they worked -

And here is where I worked...

Creativity sometimes requires a mess!

I'll show you a new project tomorrow. It fulfills a request I received and was voted "favorite punch art "of the weekend.
