What a week

I've been out of town for a couple of weeks now and am finally adjusting back to my normal life and central standard time. :)

Two big events this week though I just have to share.

The first was my celeb chat at EBBCreations.com. EBB was one of the first design teams I had the privilege to serve on so it was very sweet for me to be invited as a guest chatter. The chat started nicely and we talked about my book and doodling and THEN, they told me to check out the photo gallery. So I did. I couldn't believe it. What an amazing bunch of women. They had used an old doodled layout of mine as inspiration and created their own layouts based on mine. I'm putting them here to share. It was quite a moment and very touching. Thanks EBB friends. You made my night for sure.

The second big event was my book signing last night at Scrapbook Mania. What a wonderful reception I got from such terrific people. Thanks to everyone who came out, and hung out with me for a while. Scrapbooking is truly full of some of the sweetest kindest people in the world. Thanks to India and Nonna, too for pulling the signing together.

Well, I was the last to arrive at your signing, but the first to comment on your post! Yay! I'm just so very glad I didn't miss getting to be there for at least a few minutes last night. The book is beautiful, and you should be so, so proud. Thanks for letting me share in that a little bit.
Have a wonderful reunion with "C"!

YAY, Maelynn! We are just so excited for your book (I am, especially since I have it autographed now). It was really fun to be able to surprise you. Glad you liked it, and enjoyed the chat... even if we do tend to get off topic.
