Scrapaway 2007...


What a wonderful weekend! I have looked forward to scrapaway all year. On Thursday we caravaned to Utah and made it there safe and sound (despite a little car trouble -- Lyman is so beautiful!). Enjoyed a yummy pork salad at Cafe Rio and visited Temple Square. I had the opportunity to stay with my dear friend Libby on Thursday night and we talked 'til we dropped. On Friday we hit a great scrapbook store and then I got to meet my family that was in town at one of my favorite restaurants, The Brick Oven. I got to do a little shopping at the BYU bookstore -- BYU t-shirts for the kids :) -- before we headed up the canyon to Heber.

The farmhouse we stayed in was perfect! A huge loft work area, comfortable beds (not that I spent much time there), and Marci provided us with incredible meals. It was so great to have hours at a time to focus on my projects. It was also fantastic to get in some much needed "therapy" with friends. I was so blessed to be joined by such incredible friends that are so fun to be with and to talk to. We also got to listen to conference and have our spiritual cups filled as well.

I got a big chunk of Peyton's baby book done and I also started a 8x8 album of all our family portraits. I thought that would be a fun way to catch a glimpse of how our family has and is changing over the years. As usual, I never get as much done as I would like. Pesky things like eating and sleeping (and being super sick one night, but that is another story) took up some time too. :) I already am counting down the days until next year. I am so grateful for my loving husband who encouraged me to go while he took care of our kids. Thank you Ken!!!

Hope you like some of the pages/layouts I did...
