Making the Best of It

Needless to say, we were all very disappointed that the Syracuse Regional Conference was cancelled due to a winter storm.  Some of us had the idea that we would leave early and get to Syracuse before the storm hit so that we'd be prepared to get there easily the next morning.  Little did we know, Stampin' Up! staff couldn't get in due to flight cancellations, and the OnCenter wouldn't permit anyone into the building!  We're so hoping that Stampin' Up! will come back again–I hope we didn't scare you away for good!

If we had to be stranded in a hotel room, this was the room to be in!  We rented a suite at the Craftsmen Inn, and it was just wonderful.  Here's a picture of the comfy beds:

And our little living room with Aly relaxing a bit.  (This is before we knew that everything was cancelled — see how happy she looks!)

We had a banana split and cocktails party in the evening, and those who arrived early in the day joined us.  We put the ice cream outside to stay cold then headed across the street for dinner.  When we came back, there was a mound of snow on top of the ice cream, and Aly had to dig it out!

Courtney's keeping up with news from home:

We played some fun games, and Aly had prizes to give away.

I got a large size candy bar wrapped with beautiful designer paper from Kaleidoscope designer series paper and decorated with the Big Shot and Lattice die.

A received a cute coaster and address book set with ice cream cones on them, and this tag holding them together.  It's from the Summer Mini Catalog that's not even out yet!  Look forward to this darling stamp set which features building ice cream cones with 2-step stamping.

And here's what I returned home to!  I must say, though, I live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth!
