"I'd like to state for the record..." ..."That the rest is still Unwritten!"

Hey there...

Yes - it is true... I am home safe and sound... and much to my dh's dismay - I am seated at the Computer...already?! He has the day off - so I am sure he was hoping we would do something TOGETHER...(since we didn't see each other much over the weekend somehow) but he doesn't understand that I have been away from this computer for days?! and before that... WEEKS?!

So ...'for the record'... I had a BLAST in Boise! I got to meet some of my friend Darcie's scrapbook pals and they are so fun! I loved hangin' out with you all and laughing and joking around... I even managed to do 6 layouts in the midst of all of that... (and yes - I am caught up again?!) ...also 'for the record'... I only saw Corinna put TWO pictures on a layout... and apparently they were the same two pictures that she always uses?! Apparently she used up all her other pictures on one other layout?! Oh yes - and that Fabric book was Beautiful!

Well - I was 'caught up' - but not for long... I have to upload my pictures from our trip... then I will have a few pages to do at least!? I'll see if I can limit it to 4 layouts... six at the MOST?! My - how my albums get TOO BIG?! It is the downfall of being so good at taking pictures and never getting scrappers block?! LOL! (Just kidding!) I worked on my daughters' school album - now her Elementary years are scrapped and put away! (Sniff, sniff!) and we are ready for Middle School!? OK - well -- not 'ready' - but... !??!

Some random thoughts/memories of the weekend...

Lemon Chicken! YUM!!! (You really should think about making it just for DAN sometime, Darcie!) LOL!

Krispy Kreme... "Chocolate, Strawberry, or White"... I will forever refer to whole milk now as White! (Who knew the employees at Krispy Kreme would be prejudice?!)

ChatterBox Papers... To see - in a real Scrapbook Store - all those papers lined up... sigh... Gorgeous! I HAD to buy at least SOME?!

Spray from the Fountain at 'the beach' at Lucky Peak... kids playing in the water... dh's sleeping in a chair... and scrapbooks at our feet, sitting in the sun, slamming back some Arizona Tea! Aahh - nice!

Speaking of that... Big Ass Iced Teas & Big Ass Zucchini's!? Apparently - in Boise... everything is "Big Ass"?! (Watch it now... LOL!)

Speaking of that... I will just say Ta Ta's and Doorknockers... ('nuff said!) ...you girls... you ARE a bad influence?!

and speaking of THAT... Halter tops at the Smoothie place?! Yikes?! Let's just say What Not To Wear should have had hidden camera's!

Brain Regan... (aka must-have-empty-bladder...) "Who has the AUDACITY..." (to steal Darcie's Brads)

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Darcie's Fabric Brads! (tee hee!)

Oh... and here ya go Darc'... this one is just for you:

"I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined
I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with eyes wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten"

Thanks again for a GREAT weekend!!!
Happy Scrappin'! (and hurry up and upload those pictures, girl!? I got pages to scrap!?)

Corinna said...

Ok.... I want to state for the record.... they were NOT the same two I scrap all the time! They were the other two I scrap all the time!!! ROTFLMBO.
It was really grea tto meet you in person Karrilee!!! I love the BR DVD..... think I just might have to order it! Sounds like you had a great time.... can't wait for you to plan another trip this way.... we have a standing scrap date... K Now go and hurry..... get those photos scrapped... you know you want to. I can honestly say I have never met anyone that was "really" caught up! You rock!!! and the LO's you did.... they were fabulous! Ummm... for me to "catch" up I would have to scrap every day ... 24/7 for like an year.... and really as fun as that sounds.... AND YES I KNOW I HAVE ENOUGH Patterned paper to do that.... but... the thought actually sends me into some sort of panic. ... think my kids will notice that the the same picture is in half of thier layouts??? LOL... glad you made it home safely! HUGS TO YOU!!!
