A Great Day With Great Friends



What a fun weekend!!  My friend, Cheryl, came to visit from Charlotte, NC and we joined a group of our friends for a delicious supper at the new Monterey Mexican Restaurant.  Cheryl and I shared a Fajita for Two.  Yum!  After this we headed to Beverly’s house where we all sat with our computers, watching TV, and visiting.  Needless to say, I fell asleep in the chair, and woke up there the next morning all covered up.  My friends take such good care of me.

Saturday we were off to Georgia for the stamp convention.  It wasn’t a large show but still a lot to see.  I picked up a few new embossing folders (someday I will have to count how many of these I have – or not), two new stamps, and more cardstock.  I also found some lovely paper at Marco’s that I think will be perfect for those wedding items I am working on for my daughter.

The delight of the convention was getting to meet my fellow Sparkle N Sprinkle designers, AnneTemple and Brigita (Gita) Skopas.  We had lunch together and I really enjoyed visiting with them.  I think I talked their heads off.  I sure hope we can spend more time together in the future. 

After the show we headed to Archiver’s.  On the way there we spotted a Hallmark Outlet and decided to peek in.  How disappointing to find out that it had nothing to do with cards and ornaments.  It was like a junky outlet store, though I did get a great deal on a K-cup holder.  Then on to Archiver’s, where I found a great holder for my Spectrum Noir markers.

We did some additional shopping and, of course, had a great dinner together before we headed home.  Here’s to a great end to a fantastic day with the best friends a woman could ever have!!

Just a reminder - I posted the promised tutorial for my frog card on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today, as promised.  Check it out.

Thanks for stopping by.

It was so fun meeting you and Brigita! I had a blast talking to you (and no, you didn't talk my ear off)! I look forward to seeing you in July for the Scrapbook Expo, if not before.

I'm so glad you were all able to get together. Wish you were all closer to me :) Hopefully, I'll be in your area at some point and can meet with you too. Sounds like you had lots of fun!!!

What a wonderful weekend that sounds like - shopping, friends (new and old), and good food! How fun that must have been!! I've only gotten the chance to meet a "cyber friend" once, but it's SO nice to put a real person to all the online contact you have isn't it?!!

TFS your fun weekend with us!!
