I'm Back

I'm back!! We had such a great time on our Disney Vacation. I must have gained at least two pounds which wasn't really needed from all the great food at Disney. We celebrated a couple mile stones when we were there. Erin rode her very first roller coaster! She picked Thunder Mountain in the Magic Kingdom to be her first. We also celebrated our anniversary out there. (Yup twenty-one years with my best friend). I hated to leave Disney it was so much fun, but we plan on returning again just not in August!


We came home from Disney on Friday night so that I could attend the Scrap Book Expo in St. Charles, Illinois. I got in late Friday because our plane was delayed. By the time we got home and all settled in it was 3:00 a.m. in the morning. (Yikes) I got up really early and flew out the door headed to the Expo for some classes, shopping and cropping. What a great day it was! (I just wish I had gotten more sleep).

This was the free gifts that I received for attending the Expo and the Crop. The first is a pack of black and white elegant paper and the second pack is from Cosmo Cricket. Which had some cute back to school papers in it.

I took three classes that day and the picture above was the left over papers from the SEI class I took. They were so generous with their supplies, plus they gave us a 40% discount coupon to shop at the exhibit.

My second class was also held by SEI and the picture above is the left over supplies I had. I could make another six pages with the left overs. (as I mentioned they were very generous with their supplies) They also had a lot of prizes they handed out and a few give aways. I was amazed on how much product they handed out to us for free.

The above picture is a sheet of stickers they gave out at the SEI class. I was just so amazed I'm definitely attending their classes next year.

In the this picture above is a stamp set from Cosmo Cricket it was one of the door prizes hand out at the crop along with that pack of paper I showed earlier.

Here are a few of the pages I made in class and at the crop.

Wow, now that I have time to sit here and think back I had one busy, hectic, fun filled summers this year. Now it is time to get the kids ready to go back to school. I welcome a schedule again but I'm not to thrilled about making lunches again. Hopefully once we all get back on a schedule I will have more time to devote to crafting. I have a few projects that I've been thinking about doing. Until next time thanks for stopping by!
