A couple of weeks ago my mom and I went to a small bed and breakfast out in the desert for a scrapbooking retreat. We stayed at the Roughley Manor in Twentynine Palms, CA:
It’s in the middle of nothing in the desert, can’t imagine why anyone would want to live there. Apparently the original owner suffered from the effects of mustard gassing from World War I and doctors thought the dry desert air would help his lungs, so I guess that’s why!
We stayed in the original house, and here’s a picture of our bed. Isn’t that crocheted canopy just gorgeous?
I was able to finish my wedding album (I was pathetically close to finishing the last time I worked on it, only 5 or so pages left). My mom reminded me that I had started working on an album of pictures from my senior year of high school, so I tackled that again. It feels appropriate since 2013 will mark ten years since I graduated high school. Can’t believe it’s been that long! :blush: I was able to get 30 or so pages done. Here are a couple of them:
This is a layout of pictures from my senior year’s winter formal dance. This was the first date my husband and I went on. A couple of days later (after I broke up with the guy I was currently seeing, long story!) we became an ‘exclusive’ couple and have been together ever since.
In high school I participated in marching band, this set of pictures is from the last competition of our senior year. I loved scrapbooking these pictures, it brought back so many good memories.
I’m trying to make an effort to actually finish this scrapbook in a decent amount of time, unlike my wedding albums which took 2+ years. Wish me luck!
