Meeting IRL

Yesterday, I drove an hour and a half to meet some online friends that I have never met IRL. We were supposed to meet last year but my darling husband booked a trip with two other families for the same weekend. I was bummed.

So, when Nancy aka Yankee Scrapper e mailed me about this year's meet, I was all over it. There were 11 of us in total. Patti H was supposed to join us but her hubby needed her. I got to meet Nancy, Nora, Gina and baby Sophia, Donna, Lorna, Jenn, Jen, Lin, Eileen, and Kristin.

We ate, laughed, ate, talked, ate and even scrapped a little. LOL!

Eileen made us a delicious lasagna. There were salads, and all sorts of treats. I even taught the girls that the real name for Twizzlers is red vines. LOL!!!!!

I also discovered a Basic Grey line I had never seen before...called Perhaps. I instantly fell in love and created 3 layouts. I even did 12x12! :O I don't know what came over me. LOL!!!

I being the really large doofus that I am forgot my camera but the girls promised to share. This is a group shot I got off of SJ. I can't wait to see more. :)

Here's to meeting friends IRL! It's FABULOUS! :)

Oh my gosh! Lucky!!!! How fun that you got to meet everyone! I'm completely jealous! Can't wait to see those 12x12 layouts (hee hee... I never thought that was possible!)

Looks like you had a wonderful time. I always enjoy meeting online friends, IRL.

And please don't tell me that you are converting to the 12x12 side. The rectangle scrappers need you!
