Legend has it.................
One day John Wayne comes sauntering along onto his front porch to
enjoy some summertime country hospitality with his neighbour Joe.
Joe asks John were the missus is. Oh ,(in his deep John Wayne voice),
she's out the back with Elle May doing that there scrapbookin' stuff. The neighbours continue to rock back and forth in their porch rocking chairs while they wittle away on a stick. Joe waits a few minutes and shyly says " Yeah, I heard the boys wanted to try their hand at getting crafty too." John continues to wittle and rock then says most matterfactly "I found some coloured paper and glue one night, after dark, and I made a picture. After that I was hooked. I've got a secret scrapbook goin' on out in the barn that I'm making for my love for her birthday."
Joe smiles. "She'll sure be surprised." "I was thinkin'" ponders John,
Do you think the girls will let us join in with them?" "Well, sure, lets go on out back and find out" states Joe as he stands up and dusts off his cowboy boots. If only there had been Scrapfest back then, they could have all scrapped to their heart's content and did, you know it, the happy dance!!!

I was just sitting here, having a cup of tea with nothing to do so I went back and started to read some of the posts that I have missed along the way. I can't believe it was all started by April with 133 days to go. And now we are only 4 days away? Seriously.... where did the time go?

Thanks to all of you for posting, for those of you who come here and read (but may not post). We look forward to seeing you all soon at ScrapFest in Kitchener. I will be putting on my cowgirl boots and my cowgirl hat and will be doing a little happy dance at the Crop!

Ok, back to getting ready. Truly won't be long now. Thanks again for keeping the excitement going these past 133 days!

Three days!!!
I am so looking forward to taking my class on Saturday with Trisha.
It's the "It's A Guy Thing Layout Workshop". I figure I am a perfect fit as I have a house full of guys. Three sons and a hubby. Our sons are in their twenties so I'm thinking this class will be perfect for the "older"
guys. Sometimes it's hard to scrap them without going all cutsie, like I did when they were younger. There are still a few spots if anyone would like to join in.

So now with Scrapfest being so close, I'm making sure that all cans are not in the "drop down on my foot zone". Making sure I have no injuries at work, and most importantly, making sure that all footstools are out of harms way when it's time to do the happy dance. Come dance with me

I can't believe it's almost here. I'm bringing along a couple of newbies and looking forward to introducing them to all the fun we have at Scrapfest. As well, my daughter has just brought home her Girl Guide cookies (mint and original) so I'm bringing a couple of cases in case anyone is interested. I know I'll be sharing some at my table to snack on while we talk and scrap. Only 4 more sleeps!!!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Dawn, way to go getting your stuff together mine is all over the place but I'd like to say nicely organized in my head.

You asked what I'm bringing so here it goes.
1. happy feet to happy dance Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
2. photos and albums in a bag (I always bring a few in case I just am not inspired to work on it and leave the extras in the van). I've got dance, school and some professional photos to work on
3. my large rolling cart - filled with paper, pages, page protectors, glitter, stickles, emblishments etc.
4. my tool bag - trimmers, scissors, punches etc.
5. spending money... Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing
6. costumes and table decorations

Now that I've got that down for some reason I know my van will be full. In honesty I always bring far to much as I tend to shop and chat and not get much done.

Now to warm up to get all this packed. I'll do the "wash board" bend your knees, bring your arms up to your chest, as you straighten the knees bring the arm straight down...yep, this cowgirl is ready to go Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
