a day with the girls

i got *so* much done yesterday. i was in the mountains for about five hours and finished what i could on five pages. there were somethings i couldn’t do there, such as journaling and a few embellishments i didn’t take along.
the women i scrapped with are hard core! i thought i was cool with my little tote and my pages and such, but they have every tool and gadget imaginable! they showed up with *huge* totes full of things! i was impressed. i know i will learn things from them. when i finished my pages i watched them work on theirs, which was fun. it’s neat to see how other people do their pages.

i decided not to spend the night, mainly because i had finished all the pages i had to do. i also was still getting to know the other women a little bit. another reason i chose not to stay the night was because i get sleepy *very* early thanks to my arthritis. it’s a good thing i didn’t stay. i passed out around 9 p.m. while we were watching my super ex-girlfriend, so i probably wouldn’t have been much fun up in the mountains!
when i got home, joe had takeout from the local diner, which we love, including a *huge* slice of incredibly rich chocolate cake. we didn’t touch it last night, but we may tonight. it looks *yummy*!

here are my pages, minus the journaling:

this one is on our recent trip to visit joe’s grandmother in south carolina. she lives in a small, southern town, so we took some pictures in the downtown area while we were there. i used one of the county courthouse and one of a soda shoppe, because you don’t see those that often.

today was another fabulous day. joe went out and got donuts for breakfast, and we pretty much lounged around all day, watching some tv shows we taped and finishing the movie we started last night. around 5:30 p.m., we headed out to pick up our kiwanis club’s banner from our president for the governor’s rally joe is going to tomorrow night, and then hit taco bell for dinner. then, it was back to lounging around. it was a really nice way to end the weekend.

    i was thinking about comparing this year’s valentine’s page to last year’s. it’s like a completely different person made them!

    Cady, I love your pages!!! They are so pretty. I’m so glad you had fun on your girly-scrapping-retreat! It’s always so much fun to meet people who enjoy doing the same things you do.
