Broke Scrapper

Creative Memories Party

I am awake, showered and dressed at 8:40 a.m. on a Saturday after being up (and posting on LiveJournal) until 2.  It's amazing. 

Yesterday, Wayne and I busted butt all day cleaning house and getting ready for an influx of my friends for a Creative Memories Scrapbooking party.  All of the girls who came are seasoned scrappers so scrapping wasn't really new to them but the whole CM line was.  Hell, it's pretty new to me.  I've only ever really purchased their tools and stuff at crops and things rather than at parties.  

As usual, I made an insane amount and variety of food:  Cheesy Artichoke Squares, Teriyaki Meatballs, Chex Treats, a veggie platter, Cream Puffs and Chocolate, Cheese Souffle Puffs, Toritlla Chips with Guacamole and Queso.  I made a pitcher of sangria, which was not as good as it usually is-- I used a different kind of wine.  Shrug. oh well, I know better for next time.

We sat in the kitchen for Joanne's mini-demo and q&a, then I set up the tables in the living room and we scrapped for a little while.  I was really happy with the whole event.  Yay.
