Scrapping at the Cabin

Last weekend was My Scrappin Sistas "Scrappin' @ the Cabin November Birthday Bash." Four of 6 of us have birthdays in Nov. (I may have mentioned this in a previous post-sorry if I did). I loveeeee this weekend and look forward to it all year long. This year was no exception. Here are a few pics from the weekend:
 first night dinner and snacks. The za was really good and so was my homemade snack crack in my new-to -me vintage Pyrex dish. :)
 Setting up shop:
 Waiting on one table to arrive.
 Found this sturdy lovely for $5 at antique/thrift store. Other than the knob slightly cracked its sturdy and very useful. I love the color and I love that it is the exact same kettle that my mom used to cook with and my dad used to make old fashioned on-the-stovetop popcorn with at our lake cabins growing up. Great memories. I had forgotten we even had a kettle like that until I saw this one in the store and it triggered the memory. :)

 Sweet B2 getting her cooking skills on. Semi-homemade minestrone for the rest of the Sistas to eat upon their arrival.

And the rest of the Sistas arrival: 


 Favors (ala Lexi):



 Catching up chatter:
Opening gifts: 
 Some outtakes of the Sistas with the self timer.

 Some confusion over which hand held the "5" and which hand the "0" as someone in the group was celebrating her Big 5-0. Can you guess who?

The birthday girl is riding on her gift from the makeshift "Scooter Store." ;)
Gorgeous lakefront skies:

In full scrapping mode:
 the mess that is creativity in action:
 A birthday cake candle blowing out break:

Sweet P's fabulous spaghetti fix ins. Complete with cheesy bread. D-lish. (We also had fabulous lasagna homemade by Lex. Definitely will be getting her recipe. Yumola!

 Some DD peaks: (Inside front cover).
 Jules at my vintage Royal. Yes, we use every square inch of the cabin when we scrap! ;)
 Fondue fixins.
 Chocolate fondue that is!

Julie smiling after something spilled on her seat and she declared herself a "Human Mop."
 Home to find a clean house and lovely lights.
I realize that, yes, I really had more than a few pics to post but this celebration only happens once a year and so, therefore, I conclude,  a photo-laden post is completely acceptable.
Back later with Thanksgiving Weekend Lens and sneaks of the fabulous Freehand Scraps December kit. You won't want to miss out on this one! It's adorable!! Speaking of not missing out, head on over to Freehand Scraps and grab yourself a kit or two @40% off before they are all sold out. Grab bags at more than 50% off too.
