I didn't even photograph the upstairs, where we had 1o people sleeping on 3 beds, 2 air mattresses and a couch.
We had our first weekend crop in Gatlinburg in November 2005. It was so much fun that we decided it needed to be a quarterly event (when possible). We typically go to a lake house in Guntersville, Alabama, but it was BOOKED on the weekend that most people were available. So, I offered to host at my house, which was nice because I didn't have to pack up all my stuff and go anywhere.
We always joke about that first crop ... there was a lot of scrapbooking and not a lot of sleeping (and a lot of driving -- it took us almost 8 hours to get to Gatlinburg from Nashville due to traffic). We have digressed over the past couple of years with a lot less scrapbooking and a lot more plain old fun girl-time. I can't wait for the next crop!!
Here are some more friends.

A special thanks to our host Heather. She always brings extra supplies (she sells Creative Memories) and keeps us well fed. As you can see if the photo above, I was working on Claire's baby book. Yep, that is me on my way to the hospital to be induced (in 2006). I am WAY behind. Maybe I will finish this book before she heads off to Kindergarten!
