Glad to be feeling better....

Flowers/Plant from Mays Business School

Light Pink Roses from James

I had day surgery on Friday (female stuff). I felt pretty puny all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Today I still had some soreness and just don't quite have my energy back so I stayed home one more day to rest. The flowers definitely helped brighten my weekend. :) James totally surprised me with the roses on Saturday. Mays Business School had the other arrangement delivered Friday after I got home. That was SO thoughtful of, I don't even work there!

Scrapbook Pages

Here are a few scrapbook pages I completed at the LASSIE Retreat...These were all done with a package of Basic Grey paper that I just love. The Riding Hood Red In-Color paper and ribbon from last year went perfectly with this layout.

Can't Wait for the Weekend

I can't wait for Friday. I am going on the LASSIE Retreat (LASSIE = Ladies' Auxilary of Scrapbooking Sister in Ecstasy). It is at a retreat center in Saledo. I still haven't decided what all I am going to work on yet but rest assured that I will be taking enough stuff to where I can easily change my mind if necessary. Check for pics next week!

And the winner is.......EMILY!!!

I know, I know, Emily wasn't the first one to notice my blog was back in business....but she was the first to comment on my blog candy invitation so to be totally fair...she wins! I know she already keeps the new IB&C at her bedside but now she will have one at the office too :)

Scrapbooking and more scrapbooking....

I am really getting into the scrapbooking thing. I always stuck to cards b/c I liked the instant gratification and I loved the thought of sending someone a homemade card (still do!!!)...BUT the idea of scrapbooking was so overwhelming. I still love cards and my Stamp Camps have always focused on cards (thus far) but....I have conquered my fears and now I LOVE scrapbooking!!! I have also learned I am much more creative if I scrapbook without pictures and add them later. Here is what I have been up to lately....
