We went to the MGM hotel to see the lions. I got my picture taken with Coco the 7 week old lion cub. She was sooooo soft and friendly (well to the trainer!).
Next stop...M&M World. We had so much fun taking pictures with all of the M&M statues. We each took turns posing with all of the different colors. We watched the movie...I lost my M in Vegas! It was 3D and cute. When we finished our shopping (and picture taking!), we went to Bridget's house were we got to meet her boys. They are even cuter in person! She made us lunch...which was awesome pasta! Thanks for sharing your home and family with us for the day!
This is the Cleveland Clinic where they do research for Alzheimer's. This building has a facade that resembles what happens to the brain when you develop Alzheimer's.
We ate dinner at the Bellagio Buffet and walked to the Conservatory. All of the flowers were just beautiful. They change the displays for the different seasons.
We stopped at a little ice cream shop and shared this wonderful brownie sundae! It was a great way to end an awesome day spent with my digital scrapbooking friends!
Our class began this morning at 9 a.m. Carina Gardner taught us how to mix colors. We painted a color wheel while she talked about color and how to use it in design. We had a short break and Heidi Swapp taught us how to construct a mini album using hybrid scrapbook paper. We used the bind it all to put it together.
We rode the city bus to the Neon Boneyard. The Boneyard is where all of the old neon signs are stored from various Las Vegas casinos. I had heard of the boneyard, but it was awesome to be able to walk around and photography the many old signs. We learned about the history of Las Vegas from a very knowledgable volunteer tour guide!
After dinner, we went to the Elton John concert at Ceasar's Palace! It was an awesome concert and I could have listened to him play all night long! Pam and Kelly were just as excited about the concert as I was. This concert was Elton John's 3000th public concert. We all got light sticks with a tag!

I will be leaving on friday to fly to Vegas for Spraguefest. One of the things we were invited to do...exchange Artist Trading Cards. I had to make 75 ATC's to take with me. Mine are very simple...that is why I am going to Spraguefest...to learn more about digital scrapbooking and digital photography! They are done now and in the pile of stuff to go in my suitcase! Next week, I hope to post of picture of all the cards I get in return!
Our garage is full of "stuff" for the bathroom remodel. We spent the greater part of the day, with my dad's truck, running around and picking up the rest of the items we needed. I hope Ryan will be calling soon to get this job done. He promised to have it done before Thanksgiving!
John and Stacie had their 5th Annual McCormack Invitational today. The tournament was all about playing the game "bags". Jim, Nate, Stacie and I played a shortened version. (My first 2 throws ended up in the bushes! Oops! :)) Anyway, Jim and I won our game...much to the kids dismay! The food was good and their friends had a great time.
