Meeting and Antiquing with Carolyn Peeler ...

I traveled approximately 8,005 air miles from Singapore to Vancouver and waited for a moment like this - waited to take a picture with Senior Creative Director from Melissa Frances



Meeting this beautiful, cute and talented Lady was one of my HIGHLIGHT this trip.
She just KNOWS exactly where to bring me.
When i knew i was going to meet her in real life, my vacation-excitement meter shot up several knots! :)
Thank you again,Carolyn.
Thank you for all your sharin' too ! Always yearned to go antiquing and BUY stuff! so i simply cannot express how grateful i am !:)

I already feel like my trip is so fruitful. U know how you feel after eating a good warm meal, feeling so satisfied? that's the way I am feelin'. :)

unfortunately, my camera wasn't too nice to me and acted wonky...
just am glad i managed to take some pictures along the way :)







We had a whirlwind trip from Vancouver - Portland - Seattle - Vancouver.
Lots to see, lots to eat, loads of photos (crazy i think i'd taken over 2000 picutres!) yikes i'm in for trouble sorting...

Lastly, i shall leave you with a layout i created using The Color Room's Palette #25. The colors are stunning and have such zing!





catch you again, and thanks for popping by! :)

Hello, Emeline!

I just happened upon your blog when I hit "next blog" from one that I already follow. I am a quilter (sort of), so I don't know very much about scrapbooking, but I found your post so comletely charming, and I think you are AMAZINGLY talented! I'm following!

Emeline, It was my pleasure to spend time with you and your husband. You were both so warm and genuine. I loved learning about you, your home and your life.
