Beer on the brain

In just three more days, I'm hitting the road for Beerfest in Atlantic City with a bunch of my friends and I really can't wait to get away! I'm just so tired of work right now. We'll be launching the new typefaces while I'm away and I'm so glad I won't have to deal with it!

So I went cropping on Saturday and by some miracle, I was actually in the mood to scrap! Maybe my creativity is coming back to me!

The crop was celebrating its second anniversary so we had a special treat. One of the scrapper's daughter works for Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken - which you may know from Cake Boss - and she made this cake for us. And it was really good, too,

This crop had a strange six-degrees of Jersey reality shows. First there was the cake. Then I scrapped this layout from Uncle Rob's surprise party. The party was at the Brownstone, which is owned by one of the families on the Real Housewives of NJ.

Then I scrapped these silly photos from last year's Beer Fest. When I was taking these photos at the Tropicana, I had to scoot out of the way to make room for Jersey Shore's The Situation and his entourage.

Crazy huh? I don't even watch any of these shows but they seem to have taken over NJ! Well, I also did two other pages (and have one more 2-pager I need to finish up) that have nothing to do with TV shows.

March Madness

March has been a strange month. I saw a bunch of old friends – sadly at two wakes. My family celebrated my Uncle Rob’s 50th birthday. The Rover did a lot of celebrating - the 15th anniversary and two St. Patrick’s Day parties. The font conversion project at work seems to have taken over my whole life. At least the weather’s finally getting nicer and the sunshine seems to last a bit longer.

Here’s what march has looked like!
