OMG ! I am actually G-O-I-N-G !!!!

Quick, Pinch me someone ... I think I must be dreaming !

I got "THE GOLDEN EMAIL" to register for Creative Escape sponsored by Bazzill and Heidi Swapp ( in August 2009 being held at the fabulous Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa....

and I GET TO GO !!!! Because my DH is the BESTEST GUY in the world and encouraged me to sign up!

This is an ultra exclusive scrap event that you can only get in by "lottery" pick since so many people want to go. AND I GOT PICKED !!! YIPEEEEEE ! I registered way back in Sept 08 and they don't even start drawing names until end of March 09. Crazy, right? I have tried for the past 3 years to go and never been picked. 2009 is MY YEAR !!!

Creative Escape is the most AMAZING SCRAP EVENT IN THE WORLD .... 8 of the most amazing creative art teachers help us stretch our creativity in 8 different workshops with the latest and greatest products PLUS you get pampered like you wouldn't believe in a wonderful
4 star resort.

I am floating on air and dreaming of all the creativity that will be flowing around me with other scrappers attending this event ! It will be heaven....or atleast my idea of heaven.

It's been a very busy and exciting weekend for me.

CKC was in Houston this week and I volunteered on Thursday night at the CK Bookstore Booth. Had fun and the time went by quickly. I got a $30 voucher and entrance into the vendor faire for Friday and Saturday so that was great for the budget.

I registered to take a CK Class called Peek Into My Week...great class, very cute mini book project. I will post pics when I get a chance.

I was planning on shopping at vendor fair Friday AM when a friend of mine asked if I wanted to work with SEI for the morning at their booth. I did that from 9 am - Noon, earned $30 and bought some great product for dirt cheap....another great thing that was easy on the budget.

Friday night I spent time with a few of my scrap friends. And enjoyed all my new scrap treasurers.

Saturday was my in-laws 50 th Anniversary and the whole family got dressed up and went out to eat at a very nice steak restaurant, "Brenners on the Bayou". The food was delicious and we all had a wonderful time.

My in-laws are so cute together and kissed each other after a little speech my father-in-law made about marrying my mother-in-law was the best thing he ever did. Awwwww !

Of course, our resident 6 year old (aka Bianca) found all of that to be TOO MUSHY and asked that they "cut that out at the table since people were trying to eat"! That was so FUNNY!!

Saturday night my Bianca spent the night and we scrapped until Midnight ! I finally had to make her go to bed .... that girl is a scrapping fool ! Wonder where she gets that from ? LOL

My oldest daughter who lives in Dallas came down for the anniversary party and brought my "granddog" with her. I may have mentioned he is a just under 200 lbs and is the sweetest thing ever !

Sunday we made a big brunch for everyone and stuffed ourselves with sour dough pancakes ! So Delicious !!

Later in the day "Aunt Crystal" and Bianca made homemade dog treats for their dogs.

Bianca picked out the cutter shapes...hearts, stars, angels, bats and a Cat Head......... who knew those were destined to be dog treat shapes ?

Winston closely watched the if he knew those treats were going to be for him !

Once they were baked and he got to sample them, the CAT HEAD appeared to be his favorite...go figure !!

I just love having the whole family back at home. This weekend was very special to all of us and we are grateful to have been able to all be together once again.

Hoppy Easter !!!!

Just wanted to pop in to say we hope you had a "Hoppy Easter" ! I lost my camera bag that has my camera cord in it so I haven't been able to download pics from this year's Easter, however, I came across this "cute little bunny" picture taken last Easter that should bring a smile to your face.

I will post some pics of my latest scrapbook projects once I find a replacement camera cord...I hope you can order just a cord :)
