A beautiful wedding weekend

Wowzers!  What a great weekend!  It must have been because I fell asleep on the couch last night while reading my book and did not wake up until this morning!  Yikes!  I never even slept in my bed.  I must have been totally wiped out.

Remember the wedding invitations I helped the bride and her bridesmaids make?  Well, she got married on Saturday.  Here are the invites we made.
And here is a picture of the lovely bride that I stole borrowed off facebook (hopefully it turns out and not all blurry).
It was a beautiful day.  As far as I could tell, everything turned out great (and if it didn't, nobody even knew).  I got to spend a lot of time with my girlfriends from work (we all work with the bride's Mom).  We even got rooms and stayed right there so we didn't have to drive (it was about 1 1/2 hours away from home).  I think that ended up being a great idea!  It was around 3:30 am when we finally hit the hay Saturday night...or would that be Sunday morning!  Oh well, a great time was had by all.

I told you I made a wedding album for the are pictures of the pages I made for them.  Now all Amy has to do is add the photos.  I tried to keep it all 4x6 or 5x7 photos to make it really easy for her.
That is all for today.  Stay tuned tomorrow for some BIG news!  I'm sure you will like it-heck, hopefully I will even end up with some new team members!  I would love that!

Studio J Vegas album

So now that we just got back from a Vegas trip, I have a whole Studio J album from our last Vegas trip to show you.  I worked on this for really only about 2 weeks (not steady, but here and there).  I will break it up into a few days worth of pictures so as not to overwhelm you.  The first layout is split up in my album so that the left page starts my album out and the right page is the last page of my album to finish it up.

*Remember, you can always click on the photos to view them larger to see the details :)

I will never give up my traditional scrapbooking as I love to work with the paper and embellishments too much, but Studio J is a perfect way to do some quick  catching up, gift albums, or when you need to make more than one copy of a layout.

Click here if you want to try it out for yourself.  It is even FREE to try out!  Let me know how you like it...

The rest of our Vegas weekend

OK, here we are for the rest of our Vegas weekend.

Saturday, we took a drive out to Red Rock Canyon.  We were there last year when we went out to Vegas, but it is so beautiful, we had to go again (and hey, it's only about a 1/2 hour out of town, so what the's better than wasting our time gambling money away :)  This time out there, we had decided we were going to climb to the top of a mountain!
We made it to the top!  It was pretty tricky in a few places (alright, actually scary once or twice) but we did it!  A few times we would stop and look up, look down, and make a decision.  One time we were going to quit because we didn't know if we could do it.  After looking up and seeing how close we were, we had to go for it!  See all those cars down there?  Ours was parked waaaay down there, too!
Here is the view off the other side.  We could see the whole strip (really it's there...look close).  It sure doesn't look very big from up there.  Here it is zoomed in for you.
See what looks like a profile of a face right about in the middle?  We were on top of that.
Here is another picture of the same place only taken from the ground so you can see what we had to climb.  It was work (we were exhausted), but it was so worth it!  I am so glad that I lost the weight I have or I would never have been able to accomplish this!
Sunday, I really have no pictures to show you.  We got up, had to be checked out of our room by 11:00, put our suitcases in the car, and proceeded to the Sports Book to watch the Packer/Bear game.  I even placed a bet on the game (we were in Vegas, you know).  I knew we weren't going to be able to see the whole game as we had to head to the airport.  We did get to watch the first 3 quarters.  Yeah, my Packers were ahead!  We cut it as close as we could before we had to leave.  We got to the airport just in the nick of time (I think there were only about 5 people that boarded the plane after us!)  The game was over by that point, but YEAH, THE PACKERS ARE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL!

A funny from we were getting our seats in the Sports Book getting ready to watch the game, Dale saw a couple and said to me, "That looks like your cousin Jason."  Yeah, right, like we'd actually run into someone we knew out there!  Well, sure enough, it was my cousin and his wife.  They were even staying in the same hotel as us!  It just goes to show you that it really is a Small World!

Goodbye, Las Vegas.  I am sure we'll be back to visit you again...
