Retreat Weekend

What a fun sleepless weekend in a town full of history! MD Resort is a beautiful bed and breakfast in Aurora Texas, 13 miles from the county seat, Decatur, Texas. This town is small, quaint and full of history! Janet and I took a quick walking tour of this county seat and these are some of the fun sights on our walk!
The retreat was great fun, lots of fun ladies and good food! Patsy of Scrappers Hideaway has great retreats for those of you in the central Texas area! We made 2 shopping stops, the Scrap Pad in Colleyville, lots of fun and a huge store, and the smaller but very friendly store in Decatur! We also walked the grounds of the resort, visting the buffalo, donkeys, and horses just waiting for our attention! Yes, in the picture of the resort there are people in the pool and it is October! Gotta love the Fall in Central Texas!

Crop Night at Archivers

Janet and I met Kathy and Liz at Archivers yesterday for a long day of scrapping and fun! I actually did a few layouts before I left and we worked on our pumpkin albums that we bought at Recollections on our last road trip! Janet actually glued again:) and she ordered an ATG gun!! We are trying to get some projects finished before we go to Paty's Scrappers Hideaway Retreat next weekend!!
Club Soccer is coming to an end and we finally won a game today! One more game and this long season will be over and school soccer will start!!

The Tat and Skydive

I am not a big fan of tatoos, smalls ones are ok. My son & dil have small ones in places that won't sag :). T friend turned 18 last week and to celebrate went skydiving and got a tattoo! Luckily, T can't do either for 2 more years! As far as getting a tat, I think when they come at her with the needles she will change her mind! Skydiving may happen, and that will be ok. She is taking aviation in school and will be flying her first plane next week!

Pumpkin Patch

We really don't have a pumpkin patch here, nor do we have a lot of fall colors, so this is the nearest thing we have. A local church brings in a truckload of pumpkins and T and her friend were "forced" to go there today to take pictures! There were a little embarrassed being the oldest "kids" there but cooperated for a few minutes!

Invisibly Spooky Album Give Away

I made this cute little acrylic mini album for SBF and since I have at least a million mini albums, we decided to share. We will give this away Nov.1 after the Invisibly Spooky Album class. It has Rusty Pickle paper and Wonderful We R Memory Keepers rubons! I hope that the lucky winner will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it!!

Road Trip

My friend and I took another road trip this weekend...we stopped in Killeen at I Scrapbook (after a slight delay, which we won't go into here, lets just say we weren't paying attention to the GPS)fun, fun store!! Next stop was Waxahachie, late but we got there. Met my dil for a quick lunch and shopped at the Crafty Scrapper for a few hours (yes hours). Then on to Arlington! We cropped at Recollections Friday night until midnight and then took a beautiful album class from 10-5 Sat. We stayed to crop again Saturday night until midnight and during the course of the day did some serious shopping!! Janet actually glued things down and went through several rolls of adhesive (I keep trying to get her to get the ATG), so I had to take a picutre of the adhesive event!! The picture of our back seat is just what we couldn't get into our suitcases!! A super fun shopping and scrapping weekend!!
