I know it has been a whole month since I last posted. It has been a busy October for me.
I went on a fabulous long weekend with my scrapbooking girl friends to Rocky Point. We didn’t do any scrapbooking, we walked along the shore, wandered through the estuary, made a quick run into town, played games and enjoyed each other’s company.
Then, I was excited to learn that I was selected as one of the new Scrapaneers Peers! I’m not sure if you’ve checked it out yet, but there are lots of fun classes at Scrapaneers.com. You’ll find me over there.
For work, I went to Baltimore to interview young college women at the Society of Women Engineers career fair. It was a blast meeting some employees that work for one of the other businesses within my company. It was a bit tiring to spend an entire day interviewing candidates one after the other, but it was extremely rewarding to be part of the effort.
Lastly, we’re taking some steps to refinance our house and take advantage of some lower interest rates. It’s a wonder I had time to get any scrapbooking done at all. But, I did manage to eek out a couple with the Simple Scrapper November templates.
This first one just documents one of my favorite local restaurants. It’s close to home, they have some great traditional Italian dishes and some interesting twists on some pasta dishes too.
This one is based on one of November’s Story Starters and I used some new techniques from Amanda Taylor’s Art of Journaling Workshop. I really enjoyed her style of teaching.
