There's so much that I would like to share with you.

The flight:
We left Nassau and had a 2hour flight to The ATL, there we caught our next flight(which I will never do again) to California. I took us 5 hours to get there from Atlanta. I got tired of sleeping! I'm not a music nor television person, so I was bored out of my mind. There was nothing of the sort related to crafts(what a flight) lol.
On the side of .....she had no problems sleeping the whole time!

This is Sasha, she had it really good!!!!!

Here's a picture of interest TO ME.

This is Texas, both of my baby brothers are there in college. One in El Paso, the other in Houston.....wonder what they were wasting my mom's(& my) money on?

Day 1
Went to our hotel, the funny thing is we got a prepaid transportation service and they dropped us off at the wrong hotel. We are trying to check in at the HILTON (beautiful place) and not understanding why we are not on the list.
In the end, they realized we had the wrong Hilton. We were booked at the Hilton Marriott which was a block down. Now keep in mind it's cold, the front desk clerk said it's easy to walk. Well it's a good thing I'ma Bahamian.....Walk where? With Luggage? NO WAY! we decided to catch a taxi, and it took 3 L-O-N-G minutes.
In taxi time maybe short, in our walking time with luggage and the cold factor, 30MINS.

Day 2
We were the first persons on the line for a 7AM class.(smile)
On time well that was because California is 3 hours behind us, so 7am was actually my 10am, at home i'm on a roll by then(smile).

Technique Tuesday.....
We sure learned new techniques.
Here's what we did, and a sneak peek of what we've ordered!

After class we went on a rampage ordering this,that,them,those,and everything!
Lots of new embellishments, albums, papers, new toys to come in this and next month.

Day 3
Now this you have to hear.
We've entered the building, ohhhing and ahhhing about everything. A couple of minutes of this and an alarm goes off. I'm looking at Sasha, and she's looking at doesn't take us long to run to the exit door sprinting like the 100 meters dash. The
funny part about that is everyone was still standing wondering whats happening and looking at us like why are we running instead of doing what we were doing,which was getting the hell away from the building. It was a fire alarm, we were outside as they announced "PLEASE EXIT NOW". We started going back to our room and were stopped by a group of ladies asking us why we were leaving. My response was " I want to be the one to tell the story, if something was to explode, standing outside the building won't keep us safe". She replied, "That's smart, where you from?"
My Answer...."A smart country, The Bahamas!"
Here's the picture.

Here are some pictures of us having fun. Shhhhhh I know , we should have been

This is me sitting on a TOSH, a cushion designed to keep your hip comfy.

This is Sasha pretending to be interested in what I was saying.

I WIN..... I WIN.......I WISH!
I thought I was going to win this bike.....just my luck they didn't call my ticket number.

Once upon a time there was a princess named Keshia, she went to a far far away place and found a new friend who was also a princess. Look for the princess line coming soon at The Scrapbook Cottage.

Here's Sasha with the crew from Star Wars. Doesn't she fit right in?

Blog Candy- a scrapbooking term used on a blogspot for a gift/prize.

How are you liking this weather? It's a bit chilly if you ask me, but hey, that doesn't stop us from shopping or scrapping which are two of my favourite activities.
It's 2:35pm and it's 70 degrees outside but to me it feels like 60 degrees.
i'm a bit happy for this weather it gives me a chance to pull out my boots and turtleneck sweater tonight.
