Ever After Bus Tour and AUSSIES!

WOOOOO HOOOOO! One of our "Aussie daughters" has come back for a visit! Our 2006 exchange student, Stephanie, is here for a 2-week visit, and her mom, Toni, was here several days last week. It was so much fun getting to know Toni while she was here! I had forgotten that Steph is a scrapper... and her mom is TOTALLY into scrapping! I felt like I had met my long lost sister when we were at the Wild Animal Park and I made a comment about something the girls were doing... Toni turned around and said, "That would be a great title for a layout!" Here is a picture of Toni and Steph feeding the Lorakeets... and Anna... watching, but staying away from, the Lorakeets...

Saturday, Steph and I went on a 10-hour bus tour of scrapbook stores in Southern California! What a BLAST! We travelled on a FAB bus with about 30 other ladies... played games... won prizes... created fun Make and Takes at each of the 3 stores we visitied... had a wonderful lunch and lots of snacks... oh yeah, and we SHOPPED! I bought stuff to make some fun Christmas gifts and Steph bought things to add to her travel journal. Ever After does a bus tour twice a year, so I will surely plan to be on the next one!!!

Back to work on my new Scrap Studio!!! The desk is now in and complete... the under desk shelving is in... all that is left is the wall shelves and moving in! I can hardly wait to get to work... and to get everything ready to open my Etsy shop next week... more info coming on that soon... Make it a GREAT day!
