Good Morning Chicks
This is Kerry. Well, I have been on the road for 2 weeks now, the beginning of the trip was at my parents house in the Tri Cities Washington and then on to Boise to help my sister celebrate her birthday with some serious scrapbooking and scrapbook shopping.
Okay, so we have been to Craft Warehouse, Hobby Lobby (brand new store), Archivers and a local scrapbook store called Paper Cottage. Plus other trips to Red Robin, Qdoba, Walmart (like 4 times) etc.
I was scouting out projects and supplies for our Christmas Drop In Workshop plus our Project A Week projects and 2 Pages a Week, plus our Winter Workshop Weekend. I think Darcie and I will have some awesome stuff to bring your way. But, I have to say the inspiration as far as project samples, page ideas, etc was seriously lacking. Western Washington has soooooo much more to offer at their local stores we are very lucky to have all of those wonderful scrapbook stores.
When I am home in my own scrapbook room, at my own desk tomorrow morning I will post some sneak previews of the projects for our Christmas Workshops.
Here is a bit of a rundown of our plans

Okay, enough for now. We need to get all of our stuff packed up and on the road. It is a long trip back to Sammamish today. I actually FINISHED putting photos in a mini book for my much neglected husband. He is going to be so shocked.
