HOTS retreat!

A fun weekend in Temple at the HOTS retreat!! Janet and I left early Friday morning and stopped at Waco. We love my GPS!! Spent time at Crop, Paper, Scissors, making some fun purchases and then had lunch at Jason's Deli! Checked in to the Hilton in Temple and headed for the retreat!! We were so lucky to have Kathy and Liz at our table...never a dull moment!! Janet worked on her Christmas explosion box, Liz cranked out vacation layouts, Kathy did adorable layouts of her cute boys and I worked on my circle album!! Sunday Liz, Kathy, and I entered some of our work in the contest for best layouts and mini albums! Kathy won honorable mention,Liz won first place for mixed media, and I won first place in mini albums! We had a lot of fun but very little sleep this weekend!!

I Finally Had the MoJo

to scrap some layouts! My mojo seems to have gone on hiatus since July but hopefully a little has come back! These are a few I did last week and the circles are the front and inside cover for a mini album for a special person on her birthday!
My friend Janet and I are going to a HOTS retreat next weekend...this should be a blast, then the next weekend we are off on another adventure! We are shopping our way to Dallas and then taking a class at Recollections and going to their crop Friday night! Can't wait for these to fun adventures and meeting new sb friends!

One Excited

16 year old! T never reads my blog but for some reason she read the post about getting her drivers license. She had a sneaking suspicion that something was going on when we met at my LSS. We had parked her new car, complete with painted windows and a bow, in the parking lot and when T and dh came up we sent her out to the car with a set of keys...she found the car and you can tell by the picture she was a little excited!! After we went to eat she was off to show her friends her new car. I do believe she thought about sleeping in the car last night!

A License

to drive! T has been waiting since July 12 for the "real" drivers license!! Yesterday was the day! She rushed home from school (probably the fastest she has come home after school EVER) and we mad a mad dash to the drivers license bureau! Ten minutes later, fingerprinted, mug shot taken,$5, we walked out officially a licensed driver! She finally gets to drive without us old folks in the car!! This morning she was up way early, dressed and out of the house by 7:30. Off she drove in the Avalanche....independence at last! There is a sequel she knows nothing about to follow Friday!

Lot of Work

My scrapbook room was out of control! It had taken over two closets, 6 rolling carts and any other space I could stick my goodies! I spent the last week cleaning and purging! What a job!! My dh installed wire shelving from floor to ceiling in one closet while I emptied closets! The result went from a big huge mess to an organized closed and only one rolling cart!! I am having a huge scrapbook garage sale in the next few weeks and rid the guest bedroom of stacks and stacks of sb goodies!!
