Memories of the Manor...

What can I say? My weeked stay at Memories Manor was amazing thanks to the hardwork and kindness of our hosts - Deanna and Jan - and of course their sister Mariah! Thank you ladies!!!

As soon as I left, I knew what I'd miss the most.... our hosts coming in to ask me to join them in the dining room because my lunch or dinner or snack was ready! The food was amazing!!!! And they even emailed us the recipes so we could enjoy them again and again. The only thing they wouldn't share was the salad dressing recipe - it's a family secret. I tried to find a loophole, because this was some delicious salad dressing, but it's like trying to crack the Caramilk secret!

On Saturday, Karan, Terry and I took some great outdoor photos of us enjoying the fall weather! I'd love to share the photos with you, but you'll have to wait a couple more days as they'll be part of my November 1 reveal for my guest appearance on the Two Scrapbook Friends Design team. Until then, here are a few shots of the manor itself! The scrapbooking parlour is a dream! Enjoy!

P.S. A plan to head back to the manor will soon be in the works! So if you're interested in coming along, let me know!

My scrap area for the weekend - 6ft table, executive chair and bright desk lamp - my seat was the further one to the left in this photo.... with my own personal napping window bench (did I mention I stayed up to 5 a.m. the first night and 3 a.m. the second night scrapping?!?!?!?)

Sinclair - my angel room for the weekend!

My favourite bathroom - I totally want to recreate this bathroom in my own home someday.... but I'll add a jacuzzi tub of course!

Sonia and Shawn's Big Day!

One of my best friends got married a few weeks ago and what a beautiful day it was! The sky was blue, we had tons of fun and best of all it turned out just as the happy couple had dreamed! The ceremony and reception took place on a boat on the Toronto Harbour - a beautiful back drop for their beautiful day! Here are a few highlights from the day... can't wait to add some of these to my scrapbook!

The Bridezilla and her Bridesmaidzillas... lol!
