Mirrors on the What?!?

This past weekend, my friend, Karen, and I went to a scrapbook convention. YES, they have those... :)

We had a blast. We got to see Stacy Julian ~ a celebrity in the scrapbook world, I don't know why I didn't get her picture ~ and we both took our first ever scrapbook classes. We spent 2 days and too much money on wonderful new scrappy goodies. And we got to meet up with some CKMBers IRL [Creating Keepsakes Message Boarders In Real Life]

Rosi (Lil Rosi), Me, Cassie (CDScraps)

Me, Cassie, Kristen (kck182)

The funniest thing that happened while we were there was when we checked in at the hotel. They directed us to our room, saying we took the elevator to the 14th floor and then had to walk up to the 15th floor - we were in a "secluded" part of the hotel.

Well, Karen and I didn't think twice about this but we about died when we got to the 15th floor ~ a.k.a. The Fantasy Suite Floor. (!!!!) What the heck!?! Each door had a title on it ~ like "King for a Night" or "Jungle Room" or "Hollywood." Ours was "Titanic."

We were making so much noise laughing about this in the hallway that another scrapbooker opened her door and said, "Do you believe this?" So, we got to see Pompeii and she came to see the Titanic. She said she expected to see mirrors on the ceiling in her room. Imagine our surprise when we went back to ours and found just that! We even had a hot tub in the middle of the room ~ can you say EWWWWWW?

The best part of our fantasy suite was the fact that there were NO windows and it was still pitch black in our room at 7:15 a.m. Ahhhhhh, sleeping in! Now if that's not a fantasy, I don't know what is...
