A Weekend At Kellie's

Last weekend I had a rare chance to scrapbook with my buddies. We usually go to the Little Red River Retreat and scrapbook together, but the past 2 years I've not been able to go with them...and I've missed it! So, last weekend was our chance to hang out and scrapbook.

I mainly worked on Mallorye & Matt's album telling the story of their relationship from beginning to now...I'm hoping to keep it up and be able to present them a current scrapbook on their wedding day :)

The essential mess....cell phone, Dr. Pepper, tons of paper & glue...and in the background you can see the other project I was working on...I'm making my 2nd set of wedding invitations (150). The 1st set was for Brittany & JR and was more of a vintage look...these are for her sister Katie & fiance Jon and is more modern look with a splash of funk. And yes, these sisters are marrying in just a few months of each other...Brittany's is Friday, March 12th and Katie's is May 22nd.

My friend Kellie, who was kind enough to open her home to us and offer up a bed! This lady is super fun, incredibly talented, creative, godly, and just one of the best friends you could ask for. She's working on her calendars that she gives as gifts at Christmas....they are amazing!...and she pours a ton of love into them..

This is Michelle {who will probably kill me that I put this on here} who came to scrap, but ended up not feeling so this was her position most of the weekend.

Kelli's main squeeze, Terry. He tried to tune us out...I think tried being the key word here. I give him kudos for allowing us to invade his home and weekend.

And no weekend at Kel's is complete without Maggie. Isn't she just the most adorable thing?! She's getting a bit older {notice her gray whiskers} and was having a rough weekend, but she's still as feisty as ever.
It was nice to just relax and be creative. I'm looking forward to our next scrapbooking date :)
