What a great weekend!

My great niece, Kaela, and her parents, Jen and Tony, arrived around noon on Friday and, if Kaela was not in the pool, she was scrapping with either her mom or me or both on the card table E and I set up for her in my workroom. While I taught my class "Things that Touch my Heart" at Ruban Rouge to 14 very funny and wonderful students, our company went exploring in Tampa. By the time I got home, Rob had arrived followed a bit later by Kristen and Chris. Kaela entertained us all with her pool antics and, I don't know about her, but we were all ready for a nap! lol

We had all gone in on her 6th. birthday present (upcoming next week)and she really loved her scrap tote "just like Aunt Julie's". E fixed us great burgers and brats on the grill followed by the richest chocolate cheesecake! Talk about a sugar high.

This morning, after a great breakfast, again by our resident chef, E, we all went to Kristen and Chris' so Jenny and Tony could see their house. The Perez family proceeded on to Disney to celebrate Kaela's birthday and then, in a few days, they will return to Ft. Myers so Kaela can start school. Seems like just yesterday she was born and now she is in school...egads.

I got great news while I was teaching my class. I had been invited to a site on-line by my friend, Tam. Since my term as DT at Little Scrap Box is almost up (also can't believe it has been almost a year there), I gave a shot at the DT at Creative Scrap Shack. It is is great place to play with tons of talented women. Most importantly, the gals who hang out at the Shack have the very best sense of humor. And the great news you ask....I am now one of the DT members at the Shack ( Thanks to Carman, the owner and all the DT members...this is going to be fun!

Congratulations on your new DT assignment, I hope this doesn't mean you are going to desert us at the Box :(
Sounds like you had a fun filled weekend.
