Put a Fork in me. I'm done.

That's how I felt today during our last class at the Scrapbook Expo
today. I didn't get to bed until eleven thirty last night and woke up
at five and couldn't go back to sleep. Ugh. I was tired, but excited
about the day's activities. Lisa came down for the weekend to join me
in a fun filled day of scrapbook classes. Our first class was at nine
o'clock, so we had to be there bright and early. The title of the class
was Shabby Chic Girls, and I knew I was going to love it(which I did).
We made an adorable accordion album that fits inside a box that we
decorated with pink floral paper and ribbons. It turned out beautiful.
I have put it in Sophie's room with the other scrapbooks I have started
for her and can't wait until I can put pictures in it. We had a bit of
a gap between classes(two hours), so we shopped a little and had lunch.
It was hot today. I had worn a sweater(it is still winter, right?) and
a pair of jeans and I was positively sweltering. Thank goodness the
buildings were air conditioned. The second class didn't have a theme,
but we completed four pages that were very pretty, with lots of
ribbons, and tags, and embellishments. We had another two hour gap until our next class, so we decided to go outside and lay on the grass in the shade. I was exhausted at this point. So exhausted, in fact, that when some nice lady came up to us and oferred us tickets to that night's crop(a forty-five dollar value!), we politely turned
her down. There was no way I was going to be able to stay there and
crop for another four hours, until ten thirty that night! After a nice little rest we were off to our last class of the day. I was a little disappointed in this class, as it was very basic, but I was so tired by then I could hardly see straight so maybe that was a good thing. Finally, after eight hours and many beautiful
projects later, we headed home. I walked in the door and collapsed on
the couch, and that's where I have been ever since. Until now, when I
am getting off of the couch to head to bed. I know it's early, but like
I said, I'm tired.
Lisa has all the pics, so I'm not sure if I'll get them up here or if
I'll have to wait until she gets home and puts them up on her site.
Good night.
