Spring Fever

Another two weeks without a post. Must be Spring Fever! So much has been happening the past few weeks I haven't really done any scrapping. I went to CHA in St Louis last weekend.

I registered on line for three classes on Friday, but the first one was at 8:30am so I went down the night before (and used one of the many free hotel nights I've earned from work). The first class was called Sketchabilities and was sponsored by Keller's Kreations. I'd never heard of Keller's before, but she has some cute projects. The class lasted an hour and we were given four two-page layouts. I didn't really get them done because you need to have your photos for the layouts to work. I really liked the idea behind the layouts. She uses a lot of circles.

The second class was called Stand up and Be Noticed (or something like that) and was sponsored by SEI. I belong to Club SEI so I was really looking forward to this class. The class kit was an acrylic album with embellies in browns, pinks and peaches. The hardest part was connecting the 5 panels took 20 minutes! This class was also an hour so I didn't get the entire project finished. I think out of the 10 sides to the album, I finished 4 or 5. As a bonus, we were given an extra 6x6 paper pad of the paper line and I won the final prize drawing for the class and won an entire scrapbook kit that included a 12x12 album and papers and embellies for 20 pages.

The final class was called Everything Pops and was also by SEI. The kit for this class was actually the July kit from Club SEI. Since I just joined the club in February, I hadn't seen this one. There were a ton of projects included. The class was packed and the teacher had trouble keeping everyone going. I accomplished very little in the class, but we were given instructions so I can complete everything.

Overall, I'm glad I went, I had a good time and I'd do it again.

I was really getting behind on Project 365 so it was my intention to catch up with March and April on Sunday morning. I downloaded the photos that I needed and went online to Walgreens. Usually the photos are available to pickup within an hour, but they weren't going to be ready till Monday at 8:15...PM! That wasn't going to work, so I didn't do any work on Project 365.

This weekend has been about Spring cleaning and packing. I'm only half-heartedly packing because I have not idea when, if or where I'll be moving.

Well, that's all for now. No photos because nothing's finished! Oh yeah, I was going to work on the CHA projects last night after the Cardinals baseball game, but the game wouldn't end! Cardinals - Mets, 20 innings, 7 hours, lost 2-1. Bummer.
