Las Vegas

Our time in LV went by so fast... I wish I was still there! The first night (Sunday) Tracy and I just had an early dinner and caught up on some sleep. My cousin Jade flew in on Monday to keep me company (or in trouble) LOL. On Monday, Tracy and his 2 coworkers finished the conference around dinner time we all meet up at the convention center for FREE beer/wine/food, got bored and decided to hit the road, the most interesting drive ever, Jade and I thought we were going to die! Anyways, we ended up at the top of the Eiffel Tower! It was so cool to see the Bellagio water show from that high up, we just caught the last showing at midnight. Also, Tom (Tracy's boss) got upgraded at Manadalay Bay because he checked in so late and ended up with a suite... with an awesome view of the strip, the best part was he could push a button and the blinds went up (like in the movies!) it was so cool, we hung out up there for a while :) Next I will post a blog on my sushi experience and then our Private show with Cheap Trick.....

Oh boy, Utah was awesome... it snowed and it was gorgeous!!! Here are a few pics from last weekend at the CTMH Album Retreat, I was trying to post them earlier, but there was no internet access in Utah and its $13 a day here in Las Vegas where I am staying (The Hotel at Mandalay Bay). The Retreat was awesome, we got a 12x12 linen album (in a NEW color!) made 10 double layouts plus a title page, a mini book using the True Fit Folio's, got like 8 stamp sets and all the leftover flowers, ribbon, chipboard, etc that we didn't use on our pages, so worth it! Also the food was yummy the entire time :)

Leaving town...

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

I am leaving town tomorrow for almost 12 days!!! I have never been gone that long :) I am excited but a little stressed (hence the migraine/headache). First i am heading to Park City, Utah for the CTMH Album Retreat from Thursday - Sunday where it is going to be in the 30's and will probably get snow... then on Sunday afternoon I am flying to Las Vegas to meet up with my husband who has to be there for a convention. My cousin, Jade is flying in from Atlanta on Monday to keep me company (or in trouble, lol) We are seeing KA on Tuesday!!! Then she'll leave on Thursday and my in-laws fly in, which they will rent a car and we will drive to 29 Palms, CA to visit my husbands uncle/wife that I have never met before :) We will be there from Thursday night thru Sunday, then drive back for one more night in Vegas before our flight on Monday afternooon.... woo hoo... sounds pretty tireing huh? The only thing I am worried about is what to pack for temps from the 30's to the 80's :) Pray I don't go over the 50lb limit!!! I have internet access the entire trip, that i know of, so I will try to blog from the road...... xooxx

The first day we did like 18 make n takes, day 2 we did 5 classes and the last day we did an album track, "Snapshot of Me" with Becky Higgins.
