What A Great Day

I met Leah and we drove over to the VBC for the Simply Southern Scrapbooking Convention. It was very exciting to be doing something like this and we really had a good time. We kept laughing at ourselves in the first class because it felt as though we had never scrapbooked before in our lives. We had a hard time trying to keep up, I think it was mainly because we weren't used to being instructed on what to do. We tried to follow directions to the T, forgetting that we could actually be creative. Anyway, the first class, we made a cute accordion album. I need to get it finished with pictures added in before I can post it on here for you to see. Here's a picture of Leah, me, and our instructor, Angelia Wigginton.We had a break before our next class, so we met our hubbies and went out to eat for lunch. That was enjoyable too. And let me just throw in that I had the BEST salad with Ranch dressing while we were there. I think I finally satisfied my craving.

We got back in time to explore the exhibit hall for a little while to see what all they had to offer. Would you believe that I only spent $2 on some chipboard letters? The next class was a lot of fun too. It was making a transparency album. I really learned some cool techniques that I plan to try out soon. We felt pretty rushed trying to get it all in within the hour allotted, so again, I have to finish the album before I can post it. Here is another picture of us with the instructor, Michelle Cochran-Wells.Later that night, we headed over to WH for our monthly craft night. Annessa got to tag along. We decided to wear funny hats since it was October. Here's a picture of us with our funny hats on:I didn't get any scrapping done. Can you believe that?! I instead made one of those flannel blankets that you tie the edges. I also talked quite a bit. But it was a lot of fun to catch up with everyone. By 11 PM, Annessa was begging to go home, so we did.

I have been scrapping this week. I think I'm finally back to my ole scrappin' self now. Here's a couple that I have done so far. You can see more over in my gallery at Scrap in Style TV.This one I did for the Scrapjacked challenge-Dina Wakley. I love how she did those circles with the patterned paper and had to totally lift that. The PP was from the October kit from Sweet Pea Scraps.And this one I did for the Unpubbed challenge. Leah was the famer over there. How cool is that?! Go Leah! I used more of my August kit from Sweet Pea Scraps here. I love that kit!
