First off Inspiration Unlimited....can you say AMAZING!! I've been to bigger scrapbooking events and I've been to smaller ones, but lets just say this one is just the right size.
The teachers: Janna Wilson, Layle Koncar and Teresa Collins, our cruise director Ginger Nelson really know how to throw a party. Not to mention our add on instructors Stephanie Ackerman and Tammy Mitchell.
It was a weekend full of inspiration and full of laughs a little bit of gambling mixed in with a little drinking...can't ask for anything better then that. :) Below is a slide show of some of my photos of the event.
The projects were awesome and totally gave me some new ideas. I haven't put pictures in all my projects yet so here are a few.This book here was a mini class with Teresa. I love it! I looked for various photos of Mark and I and went at it. As much as he complains and bitches and gets on my nerves I know he likes to be scrapbooked into my projects.
The following layouts are the classes Janna gave us. She is so creative!!
I actually messed up on this layout. I'm a dummy and I just started cutting and cutting away and in the end I couldn't go with the original layout. My fault for going ahead and not reading the directions. Either way I like it and the flowers... who knew a heart punch could have so many uses??
When we started putting this layout together I called to Ginger and said..DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE?? She was like HUH?? i said DISNEY!! Look at it!! OH YEAH. I was a little hyper got excited and a new Disney layout was born. :)
and this one totally called vintage to me. I found a picture of my mom and my aunt and threw it on here. i am loving this flower technique!
This one here was Layle project. I haven't added pictures to it yet, hopefully soon. I'm thinking my next free weekend is maybe..in two weeks.
Tissue flowers!! This belongs to the book Teresa taught us. So much prettier in real life. I haven't put pictures in that book yet either. It's a friendship book..and to be honest I have so many friends that I want to add to it... now to chose all my photos. :)
If you want to join in the fun next year I totally suggest signing up as soon as the event opens up. Right now it's only open to those that attended this year. It will open up next month to everyone. Keep an eye out on Teresa's blog for the date. If you go to her blog you can also see the list of the new instructors for next year. And we will also be at a nicer resort Green Valley in Henderson. SO EXCITED..I'm going to try and go a bit early and enjoy some R&R before the event.
Besides that I've been really busy. yeah I know the story of my life. I have the Long Beach Half Marathon coming up on Sunday (10/11) and then I have the Camp Pendleton Mud Run the following Saturday. hhuummm but you know what I love it. It's an addiction. A bad addiction. I've signed up for too many marathons lately. Not sure what got into me. Think I am sick in the head. LOL. So far this is my schedule.
Long Beach Half Marathon (10/11)
Cam Pendleton Mud Run (10/17)
Santa Barbara half Marathon (11/7)
Las Veas Half Marathon (12/6)
13.1 Marathon - Los Angeles (Brand New) (1/10/2010)
That is all I have signed up/paid for.
BUT.... that isn't all.
I still need to sign up for Surf City Half and that one is in February (2010). hummmmm and some of my friends are going to do the Los Angeles Marathon in March. Do I really want to run 26.2 miles - this one isn't a half. I've done it twice. I know I can do it. Humm I have to think about it.
and with that I am off. Oh...did i mention I am going to DISNEYLAND on Monday!! Yep after I run a half marathon on Sunday I will head on out to Disneyland on Monday. Like I said..I am crazy in the head. :) I can't wait!!
