After Earleen's Friday luncheon and class with Denise , Saturday morning arrived sunny with beautiful blue skies. It was a good omen. I was very lucky to be attending my 2nd Heirloom event. I picked up Colleen and after a Starbuck's stop we made our way to Annette's for Carol's "Maison de Joie" event. Annette had her home decorated so beautifully. The Christmas spirit was definitely present. Colleen and I did a little shopping from Carol's table as we waited for the other guests to arrive. When everyone had joined the party we were served a wonderful breakfast. It was so nice that we were able to eat outdoors in Annette's resort like yard and pool area.
Following breakfast the fun began as we created our covers to our albums. There was lots of chattering, catching up and laughter throughout the morning. Colleen and I sat with Teah and Karen. So good to see them and hear of their adventures and shopping while in Az.
After another wonderful lunch again eaten outdoors it was time to tackle the inside of our books. Each page is full of details and although I am not done (about 1/2 of the way) I love my album. It was so hard to say goodbye to a wonderful group of ladies. A very meaningful creative experience filled with wonderful ladies. Can't wait for the spring event.
A special thank you to Annette for being a great hostess, Carol for a wonderful class, Ashley, Annette and Earleen for the fab lo calorie food hee hee.
Below are just a few of the many pics I took. The group pic I borrowed from Carol's blog
