Creative Block Day 2 & 3

Back again with the round up of Creative Block. On day 2 I didn't take many photos at all, just way too busy scrapping, shopping and socialising. My three favourite 'S' words.

So here is a tiny snippet of Day 2:

Here's Tracey doing a make 'n' take.
Me in the We Are Memory Keepers class.
And lunch time (more food)
Aisles and aisles of shopping to do
More and more aisles
And we finished off the day with a cocktail party on the roof of a hotel. It was great to chat and have a drink with everybody. (sorry bad photo but only one to add)
By Day 3 we were getting totally tired but we fronted up to another early breakfast. Here is the healthy starters.
And then tired 'ole me with the unhealthy version to finish.

Pancakes with choc chips, berries, maple syrup and cream. I had this EVERY morning.

Fancy Pants class today with the lovely Kathy.
And I met Jane Clark (from Stamping, Cardmaking and Papercraft) and Sherry Mendoza (from Scrapbooking Memories) the night before at the cocktail party. So Jane saved me a spot in the Fancy Pants class with them on this day. They are lovely and I had a great time in this class (thanks girls!).
Then we rallied round at the end of the day for last minute shopping (as if we hadn't done enough!), last minute make 'n' takes and photos with some great people we met from the States. Here I am with Rich (sizzix demo extroirdinaire and Super Grover impersonator), Shane from EK Success and Mindy from Core'dinations.
Tracey and I with Julianna from Sizzix (Super Grovers wife). She is just gorgeous and I can't wait to see her again in Chicago.
And both of us with Mindy (Core'dinations)
We headed out for dinner that night with Tracey's Auntie and Uncle and cousin. A delicious meal at Bow Thai. (I have discovered Coconut rice and love it!)
And then we lined up (yes, lined up) for dessert at this fabulous place that pretty much just does desserts.
It was delicious.
Phew, it was an exhausting but totally exhilarating three days and I loved every minute of it. Here is what we faced on the Sunday morning. Trying to squeeze everything into our suitcases. We managed ok and headed home.
Can't wait for July and Chicago!!!!
