Rocky Mountain Memories ~ Estes Park, Colorado

Rocky Mountain Memories

All of last week I was in Estes Park, Col­orado with mom and dad. We had a fab­u­lous time explor­ing every inch of Estes Park and Rocky Moun­tain Nation­al Park. I loved being able to com­bine work with play espe­cial­ly with mom and dad. They are a blast to trav­el with and guar­an­tees lot of laugh until you cry moments. Through­out the week, I will be shar­ing loads of pho­tos tak­en dur­ing our adven­ture.

First I have to tell you about the fun I had teach­ing class­es at Rocky Moun­tain Mem­o­ries April 25th & 26th. Cheryl Grigs­by is liv­ing my dream. Seri­ous­ly I’m not kid­ding, she has a scrap­book store, an adorable rental cab­in and a home in Estes Park. Oh how this Texas girl wants to move to Estes Park so bad­ly. I tru­ly belong there.

Rocky Mountain Memories

Cheryl has her shop, Rocky Moun­tain Mem­o­ries filled with all the lat­est and great­est prod­ucts as well as loads of nature themed EVERYTHING… pat­terned papers, embell­ish­ments, stamps etc. her stamp col­lec­tion is filled with the best bird and nature stamps I’ve ever seen.

Art Journal Class

Fri­day after­noon, I taught an altered art jour­nal class. This class was super fun. Every­one was hand­ed the same items to col­lage with and every sin­gle art jour­nal end­ed up being unique to each per­sons style. All were dif­fer­ent and all were beau­ti­ful. We laughed and chat­ted and just had a won­der­ful cre­ative after­noon togeth­er.

Trouble meets Trouble

After class, we ate din­ner at Mama Rose’s Ital­ian Restau­rant. This place has awe­some food and the best sal­ad I’ve ever eat­en. We loved this restau­rant so much that mom, dad and I broke our trav­el­ing eat out rule… nev­er eat din­ner at the same place twice. We ate at Mama Rose’s three times. The pho­to above I titled “When Trou­ble meets Trou­ble” Stacey is a hoot so she and dad got along just fine.

Card Class

Sat­ur­day morn­ing, I taught a mini col­lage card class and shared lots of tech­niques that can be used in future projects like tags, mini albums, lay­outs etc. It was a fun filled day and I was so sad when it end­ed. All of Cheryl’s cus­tomers were so warm and wel­com­ing. They made me feel right at home.

Now I’m back to real­i­ty… laun­dry, clean­ing and lots of work to catch up on. But I have some awe­some mem­o­ries to reflect upon.
