A day with JULIE

I can't believe it has taken me this long to post about my wonderful scrap day with the infamous Julie. She lives about 1.5 hours from me, so we decided to get together at my house for a mini crop.

I was so totally nervous before she got here. Not about meeting her, but that she was probably going to find out that I am a clutterbug. My scraproom was a disaster area, and even though we weren't scrapping in there, I still wanted it to be clean. And by disaster area, I mean DISASTER AREA.
This room gradually became the "catch-all" for EVERYTHING. And it totally overwhelmed me. So, I started cleaning in there bright and early Saturday morning. At about 11 or so, there was a knock on the door and I knew I was caught. Yeah, I can be a slob. Now you know my secret.

I answered the door and there she was, petting my cat (of There was no weirdness, no quiet times from the moment she walked in. It was as if I had known her all my life. She's fun, and so down-to-earth. Which is a good thing, because my house was Grand Central Station for some reason that day.

We pulled our stuff out on the dining table and AJ decided to join us for a bit. She created two layouts with the stuff Julie brought her. She was definitely a busy body - changing clothes about 4 times, singing, dancing, being the normal AJ.

We had a great day and towards the end, I had to get Jules to autograph my copy of Memory Makers where she was currently published. I will treasure it

Of course before she left, we had to get some pics:Julie has more since my battery died. :(

All in all, it was a great day, I am so glad to have met her 'IRL' and I can't wait to do it again!
