Halloween Party 2011

We had our Halloween party last night and I hope that everyone had a good time. We played Bunco and if you can believe it, I had 5 Buncos. WTF I hardly ever get Bunco's at the monthly Bunco group that I am in. LOL There were prizes for best costume male, female and most creative. Prizes for Most Bunco's (I won that) Most Wins and 2nd Most Wins. Plus a booby prize for most losses. Here are a few pictures from last nights party Jordan as a pirate he won Best Male Costume
Todd as a tatooed biker and me as Olive Oyl
Raelynn as Minnie Mouse and Gary as a Oakland Raiders fan
Julie as a QVC return she won best female costume
Peggy made this unique costume a childrens book. She won for most original costumer
There were others that wore costumes but we didn't get pictures of them before they took them off. It was a fun time and will probably do it again next year.

Annual Scrapbooking Weekend

I have spent Friday evening through most of today at a scrapbooking retreat with my sister and her friend Jennifer. I have not had an opportunity to scrapbook since the retreat we did last year. We had to find a new place to have our retreat. The Bed and Breakfast that we did last year and really liked, closed down so we tried a retreat held at a hotel. It for the most part has been very pleasant. I took a 2 page class on Saturday and got 29 pages done. I still have to title some of the pages and journal them, but for they most part they are assembled. I am very pleased by this accomplishment because I really didn't have a chance to coordinate pictures with paper and embellishments. I brought what I thought I would need. I actually finished scrapbooking around 9:00pm Saturday night. I still had pictures that could be scrapbooked, but I didn't bring or have the right paper to go with the pictures. I brought along the gifts I am making to give to my stamp campers at my Christmas card camp that I did work on on Sunday morning, but I had to stop working on that also because I didn't bring everything I needed for that either. LOL So we scrapbook pictures correct? So what did we do, forget to take pictures of this event. Some scrapbookers we are. LOL The retreat reminded me of an Archivers crop and I think we decided that we would so this retreat again in the future, maybe again next year.
