    It was been an incredibly crazy past month or so. My daughter finished up her cheer season (with post season basketball games too), we had the cheer banquet (and I coordinated and made about 1/2 of the senior's cheer memory books ranging from 50-110 pages each...TG for digi and templates). She also managed to attend 3 speech and debate tournaments in 3 consecutive weekends and qualify for both the State and National Competitions. Oh and pulled off Prom after one of them. It's been an insanely fun and busy time. I can't believe I just a little more than a year of all of this until my baby graduates from high school!!! Gaack!!

    I think I might have the opportunity to travel with the team to SLC for the National tournament 6/12-6/17. I know Utah is essentially the HQ for Scrapbooking USA. If I do go and have the opportunity, I would love to be able to meet up with any of my scrap friends. Even if it is something as simple as lunch or a coffee date.

    Who's out there??? I know parts of the tournament are downtown at the convention center and some of the big hotels. My daughter will be competing at Jordon HS in Sandy on Monday and Tuesday for sure.

    I don't know 100% if I can go, but would love to know who is nearby and if I can attend, I know who to reach out to and see if we can coordinate anything!!

    No way! I have been watching her grow up in your scrap pages for years, I can NOT believe she is almost done with high school!!!
    I second Cynthia (@MrsPeel), I am so SO jealous that you might be catching up with some of our scrapping friends!! Have so much fun!!

    @enjoyyourpix I remember once scrolling through my Facebook and you had posted a photo of Courtney and I smiled and thought how grown up she was and kept scrolling. Then about a minute later I went back to look at the photo again because I realised she looked so familiar but I had no idea where I knew her from. Then I was on Scrap Orchard a little while later and she popped up again! I will add that this was when I was either very pregnant or had just had the baby, so my brain was a little mushy. I was so confused, but I did eventually realise that we were indeed friends on Facebook and that is how her picture came up on my feed. When I told my hubby that Scrap Orchard and my Facebook were so intertwined he was happy that I had such a wonderful group of never-met-you-friends to talk and share with.
    And now we have even MORE friends to get to know! :beat

    I'm in Utah - SLC area. I know Grace @zanthia122 is a little south, but not too far off! I'm trying to think of who else comes to Digi Night Out @keepscrappin?

    There is nothing more fun than meeting on line friends because you already know each other so so well. Such fun!

    Okay! It looks like the trip is a GO!! The team is sending 10 kids but they are going to be spread out across 5 different sites so I think the goal is to have an adult at each venue. I will keep those of you interested in meeting up updated and we can figure out how to make this work!! I'm so excited!!

    Courtney is definitely turning into a teenager. She's acting bent out of shape that I'm going. I asked the teacher/coach to remind her that he is asking me to attend because he needs the help and NOT because I want to tag along. Seriously, the LAST thing I want to do is hang out with teenagers who don't want me around!!! LOL.

    Hey there!! Okay, so we are here now! I'm at the Fairfield Inn in Draper. It's just south of the aquarium on the 15. I'm chaperoning at the hotel today and there is a team dinner at 7.

    I didn't coordinate this well. I've not really had any info about the schedule. I know we go to Jordan High School all day for Mon-Tue. Message me here or on FB if you still have any interest in meeting IRL. No stress! I wish I could drive up around to where ever you are but 2 of the other chaperones dropped out and we had issues with Budget regarding our cars so there are no extra car spots in any of the car. :(. :beat

    Sorry just saw this! I can't drive by myself all the way up there (just passed my road test and I haven't gone on the freeway yet!), but I hope you're enjoying your time here in Utah!!
