Digiscrap-apalooza Recap

I've been promising a re-cap for a couple weeks now. So here I am, finally! I got a few pages scrapped and I'm ready to show them to you all.

Here's a re-cap sort of page I made that showcases some of the photos I took. It includes a pic of me and Chari (from Persnickety Prints), Me and Tiff (CT member and friend!), the Purple Team. We had teams in Vegas and had some fun games to play against the other teams. I was on the lovely purple team. Although we didn't win anything we still had a blast.....all 16 of us fitting into a bathroom stall....oh what memories we made!  Then there is a pic of Helen (CT member and friend) and Britannee. Then there is Kami and me and then me with my Scrap Orchard T-shirt and get-up.....yup, I was all important with my walkie, I think I only used it once! LOL! My job was giving away all the wonderful prizes! Yah, I think I had the best job at the convention! Then the very last pic is me and my team minus a few members. Missed you girls.....maybe I'll see you next year ;-)

And guess what? There is a free template and challenge over at Scrap Orchard with this template!
*template & challenge are expired
And this template was inspired by something I saw in Vegas.  Well, rather it was something I saw outside of Vegas. My hubby and I stayed a few extra days seeing the sites around Vegas and I saw this at Red Rock Canyon and I just knew it would be awesome as a template. So I snapped a pic so that I would remember it and then when we got home I made the template for the template challenge. 

And here is a picture slide-show of pics that everyone took while they were at Vegas. Lots of fun!

Here's a page I made with pics from the few extra days my hubby and I spent in Vegas. We rented a Mustang (yah, that was a lot of fun....a lot different then driving a mini-van!) and drove out to Red Rock Canyon and then the next day we went to the Grand Canyon. It was amazing! So glad we took the time to go out there. We were more amazed by the natural beauty surrounding Vegas then we were by Vegas itself......God makes pretty amazing things! We had a great time spending a few days just to ourselves without the kids. But we were so glad to get home to them.

Template is from the Variety Set being given away in the Scrap Orchard Newsletter (available in the store soon).

I know I usually do a giveaway and sneak peek on Tuesdays. But guess what?!? I don't have any new products coming out this week. Don't worry, I'm gearing up for May. I have a LOT of fun stuff planned for you all. Although I have no new products coming out I will have a new video tutorial for you all on Thursday along with a freebie to go along with it. So you want to make sure you come by on Thursday! See you then!

Great template Liz Thank you very much. I also got your templates from the newsletter. They are fantastic. The 5th template (center on in preview) never came out in a newsletter. Was it suppose too? I would really like it.
