It's a long one

Just a warning if you are not a scrapper you may want to visit another day. :)
I am back and somewhat feeling amongst the living. It has been quite a few weeks around here. Scrapfest was everything I thought it was going to be and then more! Loved every minute of it! For my new friends that I met while I was there... Welcome! I will be posting farther down in this post exactly what you are looking for. I want to welcome you and hope that you just don't come to visit once. I try to post inspiration of what we are doing at mambi as much as I can. I also like to give you little snippets of my life. Sometimes great and fun sometimes cranky and not fun! Just real i guess.
Didn't really get to see much of Minneapolis. Just the mall. And to say it is huge is an understatement. You can get lost in that darn mall. Maybe even spend the night and no one would know. I did buy a pair of shoes. Funny thing is I am sure I could have gotten them at my local mall. A pair of converse tennis. I would post pictures but true to form brought my camera but with no battery in it. I know I know LAME!
The family did well without me. In fact not sure if they missed me. The kids are older so really it is just carpooling and making sure they are fed at the time they are hungry. Of course they will let you know when they are hungry. Jaxon will not miss a meal. Be it that he is the pickiest person on this planet he will not miss a meal. Always asking what is for dinner...not that he will eat it. I call him the beige eating child. Everything he likes with the exception of pizza sauce is beige.
Now on to the make and takes at Scrapfest.

I am posting all products used on each make and take. I do have project sheets for each one. I just can't figure out how to link them on the blog. Sooooo, if you need the directions email me and I will email you with the attachment.
I don't know what is going on with blogger. The last few times I've wanted to post pictures it won't let me. So glad i got to the make and take before it wigged out on me. I have been thinking about switching to typepad. Anyone have an opinion with typepad?
I gotta jet. Lots of projects need to be tended to. I feel like a chicken without it's head again.
See you tomorrow!

Yes...TYPEPAD ROCKS!!! It's really easy to use and I don't have many problems unless I'm trying to post from my iphone. And that's just cuz I don't know exactly what I'm doing there.

By the way, you were awesome at Scrapfest! Thank you!

Glad you made it back safely, and that your kiddos survived!

I have typepad and I love it. However, I have never used Blogger, so I can't really compare.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
