Girl's Weekend

I got to take a long vacation this past week - which is why my blog was soooo quiet. I met up with my very great friend from California to go to CKU in Provo, Utah. (CKU is the ultimate scrapbook convention - in case you haven't heard!) My girlfriend has recently started a new scrapbooking manufacturing business (Across the St.) and so we also got to promote her new product the lazy scrapper. We had sooo much fun. We met some really neat gals and gleaned some really groovy tricks and tips. I am very much inspired. I have to give a big shout out to Sixbit for letting me go at such an incredibly busy time. I also give a big shout out to Sixbit's mom and dad for picking up my slack!

My favorite project of the weekend was this book that we made. It is totally awesome. It is meant to be a self reflection activity. Christy Tomlinson of Chatterbox was the teacher and she told us to look through magazines to find phrases that describe ourselves. Ooops I forgot to mention that the title say "A woman has 3 hearts..." and then on the stems it says "One she shares with the world" then "one she shares with her family" and then "one she shares with only herself". I just gotta say I love this because it is an inward reflection of who you are and it gets you thinking... Anyway, then you journal about each phrase and why it means whatever it means.

I cannot believe you put those photos up of me! I have no makeup on and dark circles from next to no sleep. All throughout CKU I kept saying that I didn't remember the last one and now I know why...these things are great but you hardly sleep at all. Oh my heck! I'm just so darned tired.

What-ev! I was ecstatic to spend time with my good ol' "bug" friend. Can't wait to get together again for CHA in July. We'll have SO much fun...
Seer-EEEE-us-Leee!

Mar - you are too funny. Your pics are great! Are you not gonna say anything about my cute little layout?

Thanks J and K for missing me. I missed you guys too - and K, I thought about you alot while I was gone - you would have loved CKU. There were plenty of nonscrapbooking projects that you would have loved!!! I will give you a mini class on the things I learned.

Did you discuss all of the recent break-throughs in the new stamping technologies?

Pinky said...
