Good Friends Good Times

I recently had the opportunity to travel to Arizona to take a class "Nuances de Printemps" hosted by Carol Wingert. My FAB friend Maija invited Kim and I to stay at her lovely home. She really is the Hostess with the Mostess....I also met Miss Earlene and Miss Annette. We started off our day with a little shopping (well..maybe alot of shopping)

and a coffee stop at Dutch Brothers..we hit this spot twice a day to keep our mojo going..
The a stop at Melrose, last time I was in town they were closed so I so SOOooooo happy to get a chance to visit this hot spot, and it was totally worth the wait..AWESOME store.

here is a pic of Miss Annette, Maija and Kim shopping. Then on to Sirens and Saints, cute boutique clothing store. Weird thing about this is that we heard the next day after we were there that a drunk driver wiped out this shop the very next night..so very sad!
I told you we did alot of shopping...this is the back of Maija's car..good thing she has an SUV!Then back to Maija's house where she hosted alittle get together with a few local gals. We had a wonderful meal and then Earlene and Annette brought these lovely deserts and let us all take home our little plate display.Annette, Kim Hesson, Kim Caldwell and Sherry..sorry I did not pics of all the gals but then after TWO of Maija's Pomegranate Martinis..well you know how it is...no more PICS got taken...he..he
The next day we went to Carol's home and it was the most beautiful setting outdoors and the weather was just perfect. Our kit came in this cute tin lunch bucket and was just packed full of supplies.
Carol is such a wonderful teacher, so patient and full of ideas to share.Here is picture of my cover, I added a little blue bird to my book...I had been waiting for the perfect project to use this on!
Inside more pages, but still need to add a few finishing touches, the button pack I won in a drawing and just had to use it my book, Thanks Carol!
More pages inside.........

This was such a wonderful and relaxing event, I hope I can come again soon to Arizona to visit.....
