A Fun Weekend With The Girls!

I spent the weekend with the girls from The Scrapbooking Factory at the Hilton Hill Country Hotel & Spa. We had an awesome time!  I didn’t go until Saturday morning and it was raining so hard, the drive was very scary. As I was poking down 1604 at 35 MPH, the Bexar County Sherriff’s Dept. went flying by me pulling a boat behind their SUV. High water rescues are an all too common occurrence in these parts. I hear we got somewhere in the neighborhood of 6” of rain on Saturday alone.  Once I got settled and hugged and talked to everyone, I was a busy girl! Unfortunately none of my creations can be posted yet because they are for gifts. I am amazed by all of the great things these women whip out at warp speed! I wish I had photographed more of the beautiful creations. We took a break to play LCR or Triple Nipple some call it.  Dee-Dee took away all the loot! It was very fun!

(below) Benita and Di (2 super creative girls) were using the sewing machine to create awesome layouts.
Cheryl and I stayed up working until after 1:00 am and then crashed until 7:30. We got a super room rate and it was so much nicer than driving all the way across town on 1604 in the middle of the night and dodging drunks. You can see my messy work space and a few photos from the hotel. I couldn't resist adding a couple of pictures to show what a beautiful day Sunday turned out to be. We are entering the yellow phase of wildflower season and I always think of "following the yellow brick road" when I drive down the highway and they are lined with the Brown Eyed Susans and Butter Cups. 
I am so thankful for the great weekend with friends (especially you, Cheryl!) and look forward to next month. If you would like to join us, contact Jane at The Scrapbooking Factory for a spot! 

Good night! 



Time with friends

Getting my mojo back!

A great husband!
