Where we’ll stop nobody knows…
Warning: This is sort of a LONG POST
I’m back (to state the obvious) from my trip to Salt Lake/Provo. I have so much to share.
First of all…
Let’s back up slightly.
Before I left town, my cute little friend, Courtney came over to get some help on a layout.
This is Courtney:
Told you she’s cute!
Courtney really likes the new Graphic 45 “A Proper Gentleman” paper, so that’s the paper we used for her layout.
Here’s a peek at her finished project:
The cute men in the overalls are Courtney’s husband, Travis and his Grandfather Orville.
Here’s one of the little details that I helped her with:
Courtney is such a talented little thing. She offered to help me sew a purse (I’m not that great a sewing). If you want to see some of Courtney’s many, many creations – here’s a link to Courtney’s Blog.
Now, back to my Utah trip.
During the drive there, I took a few photos from the car window:
I’ve always wanted to take photos while driving in the car. This time I actually had my camera handy.
Before you get the wrong idea, I wasn’t actually behind the wheel while taking the above photos. Silly you for thinking that. I was in the passenger seat while my mom was driving about 80 miles per hour (while many, many people passed us going goodness knows how fast).
Eh hem. Anyhoo…
Saturday I spent 9 hours in a line in front of this building:
But that’s another story for another time.
On Saturday night my Grandparents took my mom and I to see Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” at BYU in Provo. I really enjoyed it! Oh boy those kids can act!
My Mom and I spent all day Sunday with my Grandparents. It was so fun to be able to spend some quality time visiting with them. I always feel like I learn so much from Grandma and Grandpa every time we’re together.
…And it’s just an “added plus” that my Grandmother is a fabulous cook!
My Mom and I did sneak out for a minute on Sunday to take some photos of her old stomping grounds (from College days). I think Mom had fun:
She looks pretty happy, right?
On our way home to Idaho, Mom and I made a couple stops before I had to get back to work (thanks for letting me be a little late for work Dad).
We also stopped HERE, which is a blast and a half – a “must visit” if you’re ever in Clearfield, Utah!
I’m home now and all is well and crazy-busy as usual.
A couple of shameless plugs:
I’m also finished creating the Graphic 45 “Beach” Layout Class that I’ll be teaching at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique in California next month. Can’t wait! Can’t wait! I’ll share a peek or two of the project after I snap some photos tomorrow.
I seriously can’t wait. PSB is my favorite place on earth!
