I spent the weekend in Nashville at the oh-so-fun SISiversary event.
It is always so fun to actually put faces to avatars and meet (in real life) so many people who share my love for scrapbooking!!
I took about 200 pictures while I was there and I thought I would share a few of my favorites!

JJ and team pulled off a great weekend! Here are Jo-Anne, Diane, and Traci actually getting some scrapbooking done.

This is the fabulous Paintinkchick whose name I know but cannot spell (but it starts with an "S")! Forgive me...I am from Mississippi originally & you know where MS is on the literacy chart!

Heather and Angie were working hard during Kerry Lynn's class.

I was so glad to see this girl there! Anybody named Gretchen is tops in my book!
I busted Courtney sitting down on the job!
Gigi and Stacey are so cute!

There were definitely good times had by all this weekend.
Sasha, Jayne, Kerry Lynn, and Diana here are proof of that!
Ashley's class was awsome!
Check out these cute Fashionista shirts from Amy Tangerine.
Rebecca and Stacey wear them well!

Here are Kimmie and Debbie enjoying Sarah's class.

Speaking of Sarah...her class was the coolest!

Queen Diane and Traci did finally look up from their hard work long enough for me to get this picture of them.

Here is the fabulous Amy Tan (maker of the previously mentioned cute shirts)!

And last but not least, here are some of my favorites: Amber & Sasha!

I will require a few days to recover from the weekend.
Little sleep + lots of socializing + laughing like crazy + long talks = tired Gretchen
But it is always worth it!
Hope your weekend was great too!
