San Diego Scrapping!

This weekend I flew to San Diego (DelMar fairgrounds actually) to attend Scrapbook Expo with Christy and Mary NR. The hotel was not the smae one we had last year and it was horrible, never stay at the Hampton inn by the fairgrounds! It is a nightmare for parking and other stuff!
But we figured we are here just to sleep so deal with it!
Went scrapping friday and saturday then flew home sunday, I was sick with a sore throat the whole time..will have to see a doctor as it has gone to my ear so I will need antibiotics for that mess!
But I did try to have as much fun as possible...we had wonderful dinners each night, Milton's, Miltons, and The Fish Market. That was yummy, clam chowder, steamed artichoke and bay shrimp cocktail!
They had some make and takes where you can paint a canvas with water colors and the money goes to charity, this year it was for CHOC the childrens hospital in OC. I made one for my craft room, one for my kitchen and brought home a blank to make for a gift!
Thanks to my sister and to Mary for travelling with me and going to these scrapbook functions, I hope they have as much fun as I do! We sure missed Mary F and Marlene!
Well I hope we all can be reunited in November for Ontario expo!
Mary and Christy.
 Me!
 Mary bought me this wine glass, uh, that was made for me!
 For my kitchen!
For my craft room!
