Exhausted and Exhilarated...

all at the same time!!! Just got back to the 'hood after a wonderful experience in Hotlanta, aka "Wishful Thinking", the ScrapEtc event for 2009. It was 3 days of inspiration, full of laughter, a few tears, a little stress and little sleep, with all kinds of great ladies from around the country. It is amazing to me that 100 women (most of whom we don't know) can get together and have such a great time all because we share a passion for scrapbooking. I could probably post a book about this past weekend there was so much going on, but I will spare you the novel and hit the high points along with a few pictures....oh and the hubby's joined us but other than the Braves game, sleeping and an occasional meal they were on their own (that is another post)!!

So here goes....left Wed. for Atlanta, stopped at a couple of scrapbook stores along the way,
rode the Marta (an experience all its own!!)

went to a Braves game (1st ever)

....then Thur. started the fun, here is a very short synopsis

....2 days of classes with 6 teachers and a whole bunch of fun in between!!! Elizabeth Kartchner, Melodee Langworthy, Jenni Bowlin, Gretchen McElven, Margie Romney-Aslett and Jessica Sprague, what a line up....I learned so much and am so ready to get in my scrap room and create....I wonder if David will let me quit my job and just scrapbook all day long??? LOL!!!

my camera battery died during my last 2 I have to get those pics with Margie and Jessica from my mom-in-law who went with me. I am so lucky to have a MIL that loves to do this with me, so many of the girls were jealous that I get along so good with my MIL!! Oh and I bough a SLICE, which is about the coolest thing since sliced bread...a portable die-cut machine...LOVE IT!!!
