I spent over an hour working on this last night, giving up at around 12:30 am. After all the frustration of my pics not posting, I now discover that NONE of it was saved/posted. Another learning experience I guess. haha
I was lucky enough to have my best bud, my niece Sarah, join me again for an overnight SCRAPBOOKING PARTE'! A bonus this year was the 1st overnight & crafting visit of my sister-in-law, Deb.
For the past few years, Michael & Wesley have been going to stay with Grandma Stream, leaving the house free for my girls' weekend. The only male lucky enough to hang with us was our cat Rusty. Myself, Sarah, Deb, Dakota, Smoke & our kitten Squirrel all enjoyed our 'girl time', without the loud, masculine influences (& interruptions) of Michael & Wesley!
We started out our weekend with a trip into town to develop Sarah's film (from a disposable camera) from her son Brandon's horrible accident last Halloween. She thought that she would be able to look at and work with the photos by now....after trying to scrap them, she realized that she wasn't quite ready yet.
During our wait for the film to be developed, we enjoyed an inexpensive treat of lunch at Mancino's. From there we checked out Dollar General for some decorative boxes that Sarah & Deb had been seeing, as well as a trip into Peeble's for nice work shirts for Sarah's new teaching position. We then visited Grandma Veerman & Aunt Annetta, discussing our girly plans for future play dates, including a possible overnighter at Grandma Veerman's beautiful, large home, before returning to my home to start crafting.
