Well, I left on Friday morning (cough) OK, it was just after noon... and to think we were suppose to leave at 10am! LOL!
We decided we would leave on Thursday night next year. :)
BOY did we LAUGHED!!!
WOW what a great time!!
(just so ya know-these are coming straight from my camera! I have too much to do to edit!)
So... it started with packing the SUV... (Thanks Angie!)
On the way up we stopped at The Goose Barn in Rockford.
It was this totally cute barn filled with stamps and some scrapbooking supplies:
It was totally adorable... there was even a barn cat!
And ants. (yes, that is an ant by the ant stamp. I made him pose. No one is safe from my camera) :)
When we got there, we went for $5 appetizers during happy hour!
The laugh attacks started here...
Then we went to the house to set up...
One LONG Ikea table, then another table at it's end, then ANOTHER one end to end to that!
I got 4 pages done all weekend. :)
In my defense... we DID go into Lake Geneva for 6 hours on Saturday. Breakfast then window shopping. :) And more laughing of course.
Went to my favorite store... I could live in this much color. I could. If I win the lottery, I am buying one of everything in this store! :)
Jim Gaffigan is SO worth watching!! If you can get a hold of his show, GET IT!
HOT POCKETS.... that is all I have to say about that. :)
Well Anne, Kelly... your off your thrones. Alicia Ellison is now the funniest person I know! :)
I canNOT believe the expressions I got out of that crazy lady! :)
But of all the expressions/gags, THIS is my favorite!!
And this is what was waiting for me when I got home!
AND my husband cleaned the basement and pulled up the sod for landscaping where I asked! Big weekend for me! :)
OK, after all that-my layouts...
The challenge: Use one piece of cardstock and one piece of patterned paper. Any embellishment has to be from the paper. So of COURSE I used Sassafrass Lass. :)
I need to journal still though...
Layout using the Melissa Frances Papers and stickers for Scrapaganza and Pink Sketches.
Gotta love your edge distresser! :)
So yes, I shamelessly stole this picture of Annie... I couldn't find my pictures and only had a few with me, and I just loved this picture of our little friend. :)
And this one... yes, I went home after I took this, printed it off at the house, and scrapped it! :)
This one is a cheater... it was almost done when I got there. :)
Well, that's it! :)
Oh, and I will leave you with this... my pot of gold! :)
