Home Again!

Hi all!

I'm finally home (and re-settling back in) from a long weekend up on the Jersey Shore! I had some fabulous students attend the classes I taught at Scrapbook Cafe and I enjoyed every minute of it! Thank you so much to all of you, especially Angela, for having me up there and making me feel so welcome!

The extended part came because I also got to visit with my best friend, Ann Marie, and her adorable daughter, Lydian! It was a much needed girl's weekend even if one of the girls was only 16m old!

To say I was in heaven would be an understatement and I won't begin to bore you with even a portion of the 1000 or so pictures I took of the baby girl! (I'll just share one or two - ha!) She was a real trooper as her mama and I drove all over the Jersey shore (including Atlantic City - a definite, um, adventure!), outlet shopping, eating out and everything in between. I even did a couple of mini sessions - one on the beach with her mama and one with a couple of fun, green balloons. Thank you so much, girls, for having me and I love you both! Can't wait to see you again very soon!
But as much fun as I had, I was so glad to get back to my boys. Turner, especially seemed to miss his mama as he kept telling me over and over again as he climbed in bed with me in the morning. So sweet!
Hope you all had a fantastic St. Patty's Day and managed to not get pinched...unless you wanted it!

OH! And ETA: Today is the last day to enter BasicGrey's FABULOUS FABRIC Contest! See my post below for all the details! Good luck! :)

Here's to a glorious Wednesday! It's 75 and sunny here in Kentucky. Happy Hump Day!

I am glad you had a wonderful time teaching and visiting with a good friend. A borrowed "girl" picture to scrap. I had a great time in your class even though "something" was trying to interfere with it. I think one time when I was in a rush to leave the room I "bumped" into you and I don't remember if I apologized or excused myself. I want to make sure you know I am not normally "rude" and I do apologize. I also think you shared some tips about pictures and sizes of pictures or the pieces of paer. I would be greatly appreciative if you could post those tips again.
