SWHS Musical

Tomorrow night is opening night for Beauty and the Beast at SWHS!!!
Every year I look forward to the musicals but this year it's gonna be different because Courtney is going to be up on stage and I am soooo excited for her.  She has practiced so hard and this week the whole cast has put in some very long hours but I know that it is going to be a show worth seeing. 

Courtney has two parts, she plays the role of a villager and also a feather duster.  I can't wait to see her.  Auditions were back in November, if that tells you anything about how long they have been working on this.

Good Luck, Baby Girl!!!

A Few of My Scrapbook Pages

I thought that I would share a few of my scrapbook pages from the retreat.  They're still lacking the journaling, I save that until I get home.  All four layouts are pretty simple and I didn't realize until now how many layouts I did on the white page itself, which makes for a lighter book.

These spreads are from our 2010 Western Caribbean Cruise.  I started this album in 2010, sad, I know but now I am finish with the album after I journal.

I love this spread.....15  (4x3) pictures, what a way to summarize a trip!
 This spread is another favorite (I think it has something to do with the colors) take one large circle and cut it in half then add a rectangle across the two pages with ribbon. 
I will pour out my thoughts to you,
I will make known to you My teachings.
Proverbs 1:23

Scrapbook Retreat

We were all surprised to wake up on Saturday morning to this.  Yes, to our surprise it had snowed during the night and everything was covered with snow Saturday morning.
The snow made for some gorgeous pictures, something wonderful to scrapbook of course.

Alicia and I out in the snow.  I love this girl and yes, we have our pajama bottoms on. (I did change out of them for the group picture before lunch)
 This is the only time in four days that I left the lodge.  This year our group stayed in
the basement so we had no reason to leave the lodge especially with the weather being soooo cold.
Alicia, me (Carla), and Megan warming up in front of the fireplace after being outside for our group picture
Early morning view from the lodge.
Our group, most of which have been attending since we started the retreat 8 years ago.
The snow on the ground had started to melt by this time but it was still snowing and the trees were still covered.
Friday night was Pajama night, along with ice cream....YUM!!
I had to get a picture of this mother, daughter pair....Alicia and Brenda in their matching PJ's

This little guy hung out on the dumpster behind the lodge all Thursday night. I guess he was waiting for some garbage. Everyone kept and eye on him and I am sure that he kept an eye on all of us.  He never moved but was gone by morning.
It was a WONDERFUL weekend!!!! This was our 8th year and by far the BEST yet.  I accomplished everything that I wanted to, which was a first, meet new friends, visited with old friends and ate way too much food!!!

 Keep asking, and it will be given to you. Keep searching, and you will find. Keep knocking, and the door will be opened for you.
