Bags are unpacked... finally!
Hooray! I think I may be at home for a while... Got back from Nashville late Thursday and back to work on Friday. Thankfully this week will be my short week (I have Friday off) so maybe I can recover a little bit...
Had a wonderful time and got a chance to truly experience the Music City. The photo above is one I snapped from my hotel room of the Tennessee State Capital. We stayed in an awesome place downtown with close proximity to all the hot spots! While we were there Lady Antebellum was filming their latest music video a block away. My traveling companions actually got to see the filming. I was a little under the weather that night and decided to stay in my room! :-(
Some of the folks at this training were actually extras in the video. I can't wait to see the final product. Also Queen Elizabeth was staying in our hotel. Never got to see HRH but thought it was cool that she was in the area...
But my favorite excursion was to The Grand Ole Opry. It was even more special seeing that it had only been open for a week after being refurbished. If you remember, Nashville was flooded earlier this year and after seeing the devastating photos, it was amazing to see them back open in such a short time. The stage was under 4 feet of water! WOW! On the night I was there Josh Turner was performing. He started out with "Long Black Train"... one of my all time favs...
Well on to crafting...
This card is actually a repeat image from last week. I love using pumpkins in my fall cards and this one will be a Copic class project I am teaching Monday night. The card design is a little smaller than what I usually go with... 4 X 5 1/2 inch....
