Lots of pictures to share!

Last weekend I went to visit my friend Nikki, and participate in the Nikki Sivils World Premier day at Scrapbook Generations! Nikki is just the sweetest girl and so talented too! She invited me to come and stay in her home for the weekend. Both she and her husband were so sweet and were wonderful hosts - I had the best time while I was there! I arrived on Friday, and that evening we went to the store to set up the tables for the make & takes. Then Nikki took me to a Chinese restaurant for dinner. Everyone said I had to try the chinese because there is no other chinese like Springfield, MO's chinese. LOL We had the General Chicken. It was fried chicken in a sweet sauce - it was pretty tasty! Then that evening, we just sat and talked and watched t.v. and of course, played with her doggies - she has 3, Bella, Savanna and Alfred. I missed my little Lexi, but loved meeting her dogs! Here are a few pics of Alfred, Savanna and Bella!

Saturday was the big day, so Nikki left early, and I went in a bit later. Before I went to the store, I hit up their Hobby Lobby - it was way nicer than ours! I was so impressed with it. I made a couple of more stops and then went to the store. The first thing I saw when I walked in the door was this:

I was in Heaven! :) They had lots of snacks to dip in it - fruit, cookies, pretzels . . . the strawberries were the best! Nikki, Heather and Katrina were hard at work doing make & takes, or "mini classes" as they like to call them at the store. ;)

The lady in green was so funny! She was telling us how her daughter was getting married and she needed the scrapbooking events to help keep her sanity. LOL

Lots of people participated in the mini classes, but one of my favorite was Nikki's little brother. He is just the cutest thing. He resisted making the card at first, but Nikki talked him into it and he did a great job on it!

Here are a few pictures of the display at the store with Nikki's products! People were buying them like crazy!

In other news, I have been working on getting an album together to put my 365 photos for this year in! I already had a pink American Crafts 3 ring binder that I thought I would use, so on my way home from Nikki's house, I stopped at Archivers and bought some photo page protectors. Then on Monday, I worked on getting the album together. I printed out all the pictures so far, and made some journaling cards to document what each photo is about. Here are a few pictures of my album so far:

Well - thats all I have for now! Hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday!

Talk to you soon!

Hi Kim!

So what project did you make? So cool that you got to stay with her.

I love her puppies, what kind is Savanna?

Love these pics! That Alfred looks like my kind of dog! Still wish I could have gone to Springfield too.
