Off to Creative Escape . . .

It is 4am and mom, dad and I are off to Arizona for the last Creative Escape. This time taking my parents van. Dad just got his truck back from Mississippi and it is running great but he thinks it needs new tires before we take it for another road trip.

In route we stopped at one of mom's favorite places, Wildseed Farms, to stretch our legs. OH MY, this is a very dangerous place. So many fun and pretty things to temp you to open your pocket book. I did find something I could not live without. Bluebonnet seeds. Dad is going to turn the back field into an ideal bluebonnet field for pictures. Yeah for dad. I know the rain has been bad this year but hopefully dad and his dedication to Scrapp'n Savvy will help us keep that fun Texas tradition alive for 2012.

Mom and I both have a hard time with sitting without something to do so yes as soon as the sun was up we were Scrapp'n! Mom made some beautiful layouts for Millie "Q" and I made a Bobunny mini book for a store sample so much fun! Don't you love how mom used her space? Sticking stuff to the window was an awesome idea. She is the best!

Well the music stopped playing when we arrived in Lordsburg New Mexico. The blue van died! Ugh! The alternator went out and there was no place in Lordsburg to fix it. The auto mechanic gave the battery a good charge and said IF you don't run the AC or anything but the engine you MIGHT make it to Deming Arizona 80 miles away. So with a prayer in our hearts we headed for Deming. The blue van died as we pulled into the Auto place. What a blessing. They had us up and going in two hours! YEAH for Mills Auto place!

Arrived at Bazzill just in time to play. Bazzill puts on a to-do-lah for the store owner who attend Creative Escape. Mom and I made some fun projects using all the new Bazzill lines . . .so much fun!

Plus I was given more give-aways for the Scrapp'n Sampler!

Happy Scrapp'n
