This was a really good weekend for me. Friday my mom and sister and I went to a scrapbook convention. We weren’t expecting much as it used to be very large but they’ve lost a lot of vendors but, of course, I still found some stuff I just couldn’t live without. I didn’t spend nearly as much as I normally do and that’s always a good thing. I did find some great paper and embellishments. Here is a layout I did yesterday with some of my new paper and flowers.
My mom came in town for the convention and we got to spend a lot of time together. She lives a couple hours away so it’s nice to catch up during her visits. She’s an avid scrapbooker too. One of my sisters scrapbooks as well. Apparently it’s contagious 🙂
We also made a final decision about our digital camera dilema. We got one (which is why you’re getting the picture above). We decided on the Canon Powershot S3 IS:
It’s got all the functions (and then some) Hubby will ever use and it’s got some cool functions I can really use for scrapbooking. It has a “color exchange” option so if someone is wearing an obnoxious hot pink shirt which is just ruining your Christmas layout, I can exchange the pink color in the photo for say, brown . How cool is that? It also has a”color highlight” feature that lets you take a photo in black and white and one other color. So let’s say you’re doing my Christmas shots and you can just show the red colored items to highlight the Christmas presents. Cool, huh?
I also got to see my Godson/Nephew a bunch this weekend. He’s 21 months old and too cute for words. I was reading the paper yesterday and saw ads for Halloween costumes already and I can’t wait to see him in something cute. He was Eeyore last year. I’ll have to post one of those pics later – too cute!
Hubby and I also got to spend a lot of time together this weekend. We grilled steaks last night for dinner and they were so good. Hubby is the grill master! I was feeling all domestic so I even made dessert. So what that they were just Rice Krispie squares – the easiest dessert on the planet – but they were homemade so it counts!
So, how was your weekend? What did you do?
