My Name is Michelle....and I'm a Scrapbooker

I just got back from a full scrapbook weekend, courtesy of Scrapbook Dreams. The dream camp was held at the Carmel Mission Inn in Carmel, CA. Cropping started at 2pm on Friday, and ended roughly at 3pm on Sunday. It was a flurry of activity from the beginning. I brought only my regular crop bag and my Cricut, but other people literally brought small stores. I shouldn't necessarily complain about that though since I ended up borrowing correctly-colored paper from a few people (thanks Mary!).

All meals except for dinner on Saturday night were provided, so we could crop to our heart's content, and eat to our heart's content with all the junk food around. Saturday night we went to the Rio Grill (right across the street from the hotel), and had the most amazing dinner. I had herb-crusted chicken stuffed with goat cheese in a tomato basil cream sauce. I highly recommend this place to anyone going to Carmel.

I got a bunch of layouts done, here's one of my favorites:

The layout actually came about from playing Iron Scrapbooker.  The same concept as Iron Chef, but with scrapbook supplies.  On this layout, the 2 quotes, and the little tags are leftover from the contest.  They had given us this weird green paper, some mesh, a snowflake frame, and 2 shamrocks as well which I used at the time, but as soon as judging was done I ripped those pieces off and fixed my layout.
