Back to reality and a NEW blog banner!

Hi everyone! Whew, what a whirlwind week. I Spent the majority of it reading the Twilight books -made it thru Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and 1/2 way thru Breaking Dawn and saw the movie 2 times!! Ahhh, Edward...

Yesterday, I spend 11 hours at the Portland Expo for a Creative Memories Celebrate! which is an all day CROP from 9am to 8pm! Oh, it was fun, this is my 3rd year going. There are over 1000 women all in one giant room working on scrapbooks. I finished 10 pages (with about 6 I am happy with). My GF did 30!! She scraps a bit different than me, so I am happy to have completed 10.

To give you an idea of size, here is a picture taken from the isle looking to the left. There another section of seating to my right too!! I told you it was BIG!!
So, I am off to pick up the boys from my mom's and have several cards I have to get made, so back to reality for me. But, what a lovely break! Thanks Stephanie Meyer!! And THANKS to Jodi for finally convincing me to read these books and now she has another person to share her Edward obsession with.

And lastly..... did you notice my NEW BLOG BANNER AND SIGGY? For those of you with the Google Reader, click in and check it out. I LOVE it!! The talented Jami (sgtStamper) made it for me. I soooo love it! I saw what she did with Amy and Tosh's banner and HAD to contact her about doing one for me. She is fast, amazingly talented and SUPER sweet! Thanks Jami, hugs to you!

Be back later. I may be coarsed into posting a pic or two of some scrapbook pages I did yesterday!
