Silver Bella

I'm back! Well actually, I've been back for two days now, but you leave three boys home alone for a weekend and you're bound to have to clean up when you get home. But that's okay. Despite the mess, I missed them and was very happy to see them (mess and all) once I got home.

Now that I have all of my domestic ducks in row, I can share my glittery Silver Bella experience with you. However, it may be short. Once I started uploading my photos, I realized that I really didn't take that many. Ooops.

The Silver Bella experience =

Very cool SHOPPING...



There are some really great antiques shops in downtown Omaha!

Getting together with FRIENDS...





So many people I didn't get pictures with or of... bummer... there's always next year though!

Fun GROUP ACTIVITIES...







All of these were lots of fun! And of course, I only got like two Prom pictures, but there are tons being posted everywhere, so...

Amazing SWAPS...



Tons of amazing work and again, hardly any pictures.

And last, but the farthest from the least, outstanding CLASSES & INSTRUCTORS...





I haven't finished up all of the projects, but as I do, I will share.

So there you have it. It was GREAT and I already can't wait for next year!

And for my "mediocre friends" here in town (you know who you are!) THANK YOU so much for all of the phone calls and text messages you sent me while I was gone! I loved getting them and I really missed y'all! I can't wait to see you... soon!!!

And a last little side note... I've updated my shop. There are new cards (Autumn... I know, I'm SO behind!) And I'll be listing things all week.

Y'all have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

You gals look like you had entirely TOO much fun. Seriously, I'm so glad you guys got to go. A perpetual slumber party that lasts for days! And you come home with goodies and all that inspiration just spilling out of you, I'm sure.

Yea! Your home and you have pictures!! Silver Bella looks like SO much fun. Maybe that's something I should put on my list of things to do in 2009. I'm such a novice though, but I just KNOW I'd have a great time! Wish we had something like that here in Texas. Welcome home :D

Shannon (Faith and Chocolate) said...

Great pics, Alisa! I hope you don't mind I snitched a couple (ones that I didn't take because of two or three cameras already taking them!) ;)
It was sooo much fun with you and Joanna... I can't wait to get together with you girls again, sometime! What fun... can't wait for next year! Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving with your family! Keep in touch!
