Holy crap! I haven't blogged since April 18! I've done a lot since then, so excuse me if I ramble! More than usual that is!

Last Wednesday - Saturday, I was at Mega Meet in Novi, Michigan. I helped Kelli with her classes, and helped set up and tear down their space. Other than that I was on my own to take classes and shop shop shop. I actually started a list of everything I bought but it got to out of control! And I had to put everything away without taking pictures so I'd have some space. Suffice it to say I got lots of cool stuff. There were lots of bargains at the Advantus booth. Like Heidi Swapp bling for $1.49 and lots of other HS stuff for $.99. Also AMM totes: Thursday I got one for Karen for $7.99. Great bargain, as they retailed for $15.99 (I think. And I think they're discontinued, hence the bargain price.) When I packed it up Friday night, i decided it was pretty cool and that I wanted one, so I got another one. This time it was $5.99! Also went to the Lifetime Moments warehouse sale and got 2 12x12 zip locks full of stuff for a little over $18! That was fun. Found the Scrapbook Zone selling new Prima stuff, so stocked up there. Also found the Crafty Secrets stuff I've been lusting after every time I read Vicki Chrisman's blog. So bought a stash of that. The rest was random stuff: glitter, glue dots in a dispenser; lace; paper; etc etc etc.

I took 5 classes. Went to 3 of them and finished one project so far! LOL! This one was done by the Heidi from Twelve Fridays. I didn't go to the class. it was at 9 AM Saturday morning. I had an opportunity to sleep in, so I didn't go to the class. And I didn't sleep in either. But it was nice to just laze around my hotel room without having to rush about. Here is that project. Isn't it cute?

I have a layout and a canvas triptych to finish. There were from Quick Quotes. I loved those 2 classes and will definitely be taking more next time. There are several layouts from a Bazzil/Basic Grey class that I have to do. I didn't go to that class, either. Something in the free hotel breakfast did not agree with me (or Mark or Becki, for that matter), so I sat outside the class with my feet up. And there was the acrylic Mickey Mouse album class. I did that one when I thought I was feeling better and total messed up the cover page. I punched a hole in the wrong place and smeared my stamping! So I'm in search of a single 6" acrylic circle to re-do it. It's an adorable album when it's done correctly!

Gina met me at the Meet on Friday and we shopped a bit, went to the warehouse sale together, then ended up at Gus O'Connor Irish pub eating boxty, fish & chips, and drinking beer. It was such a nice evening. She's so easy to talk to and so fun! We missed our other Mega Meet friend, Carolyn, though! She and her son have been so sick!

Since I last blogged, I've also been to a getaway at Sugar Creek, a 12 hour crop at Cord, bought a new car, and participated in The Great Race at Scrapbook Heaven.

Here are some layouts from the 3 scrapping events. I didn't scan them all but it's a sampler. I haven't taken a picture of the car yet, so that will be in another post. This is getting boring to me, so I can imagine how you must feel.
