Home again, Home again (and I always must add, jiggity jig)

Back home, that is, from the wonderful Twelve Fridays Weekend Celebration in the Smoky Mountains.

I drove up, and it was cold and drizzly, and pulled into our beautiful resort. This was what was waiting as I walked into the scrapping lodge.

There were lots of fun, bright, springy decorations and small touches that just made it lovely, like the tote bags with all of our supplies in them (including an American Crafts album that we ended up FILLING with layouts from the classes), the little jars decorated with our initials and full of candy, the embroidered shirts for the teachers, and the DELICIOUS food from Heather. Man, I wish she could come be my full time cook. hehe

I had so much fun - it was really low-key and we had ample time in the evenings to chill out in the theater rooms (even if "Australia" was way longer than we thought it was going to be, it didn't matter because we were all kicked back in these cushy recliners) or to go shopping in the outlets - or scrap. I mostly just took advantage of the really comfy beds. :)

These are some of the albums the ladies decorated (and filled with layouts).

Here are the layouts I taught- I hope it's okay to go ahead and post them!

All in all, a fabulous event. Kudos to the whole team- Heather, Heidi, Amy, Mandy, and Nic- I had a blast spending the weekend with all of you and can't wait for next year!
