I stayed for about 2 hours and between catching up with Janie, her daughter Lisa and Teresa, I got 6 cards completed. They are made with Anna Griffin 3-D Christmas stickers. Bazzil white and red cardstock, red metalic paper, I'm not sure who from and some stips of gold metalic stickers. I also used white and gold pens to create some of the swirls, dots, etc.
Hope you like them! Tomorrow I'm back at the crop by 10AM for a cupcake album class, followed by all day cropping and then back home, once I feel tired, so I can try to get a good nights sleep and go in again on Sunday for a few hours! There are some very awesome scrappers in this group of ladies, and some very interesting ladies indeed!

As promised here is my book from the Bahamas.
One of the things that is truly special in the Bahamas is the Bahamians. They are a kind, free spirited, jovial people at least nearly all those I met were. Despite the fact that they drive on a different side of the road, speak with a cadense unique to them, have a Queen and a Prime Minister and not a President, they are not so very different from Americans and have even more in common with Canadians. But their sunny Island smile is very special and something that lights up almost every moment of your stay in beautiful Nassau.
Thanks again Keshia for having me.

I did find out a few things! There are may may ways to eat conch and I tried at least a few of them. Bahamians are totally crazy drivers! Not only do they drive on the wrong side of the road, they often do it in American cars, so they are also driving in the wrong side of the car! Local restaurants there don't often bother to debone the meat! Watch out for bones in everything from soup to curried mutton. By the way for those who don't know, mutton according to the Mirriam-Webster dictionary is defined as follows:
Middle English motoun, mutton, sheep, from Anglo-French mutun ram, sheep, mutton, of Celtic origin; akin to Old Irish molt wether
- Date: 13th century
Mutton tastes really good, especially if the fat is removed.
Keshia and her husband Michael were on the same flight as I was from Nassau to Ft. Lauderdale. Since almost everything sold in the Bahamas is imported, my friends were on a shopping trip to bring back tables and chairs for The Scrapbook Cottage's scrapbook class/scraproom. Can you believe that it is cheaper for them to pay for return tickets to the the US, shop there and ship things back than to order the same items online and have them shipped? Unbelievable!
I am also hoping that Keshia had a chance to go to CKC Ft. Lauderdale and will let us know, via her blog, how she found it! As big or smaller than last year?
I've been settling back in, enjoying being with my DH, watching Disney movies, from the Parent Trap to Santa Clause 3 to Ratatouille. I went out too, it was nice to be able to hop in the car and just go where I wanted. Strange the things one can miss!
I did complete a small We R Memory Keepers 2 ring album while in the Bahamas to put my trip pictures. I'll try to complete it tomorrow and share. I also worked on a 4th of July acrylic album today, which I'm also hoping to finish tomorrow!
So what have my friends been up to, I wonder!
