I'm back from Alaska and my SB convention. I will save the adventures of our journey about Alaska for another post when I have time to upload photos. For now, my June DT reveal.
Ciao, my friends.

Here's to a good night's sleep!

on vacation...

Over and out...I will see you all after June to see the beautiful state of Alaska.

last minute

Tomorrow we head out to Alaska. I am excited, but yet know that today is my "last minute" day to finalize everything. Why is there always so much to do to get ready for a vacation? I guess I put that kind of pressure on myself.

On my list today: manicure and pedicure, clean and organize my purse, boy's list, cosmetic bag, clean the refrigerator, and scrapbook, LOL. Actually, I am in pretty good shape, so hopefully tonight I can relax a little bit.

Enjoy this rainy day.
Here's to fresh strawberry shortcake and bright pink nails.

creative Friday

Friday was a blast! Aymee and her mom, Carol came to my house and we cropped all day and night. It was so nice to finally meet Carol. Carol is Aymee's mom and from Alabama and a fellow educator. I am so glad she is my friend. What a great person! Hi Carol! Hi Aymee! Thanks Aymee for sharing your mom for the day. I was able to complete two LO's and two cards. Actually, Carol and I made the same two cards. Thanks for the perfect ribbon.

This first LO is of Aiden. I fianlly learned how to make paper pleats, thanks to Aymee. I am sure I will be using this technique on many more of my LO's. And, all paper was from my stash. I just love that I am using up all my scraps of paper.

This LO is of Chris and Jules. I think this might be the only picture I have of the three of us. There are two tags that I have hidden relationship to the two of them. Again, I used my stash for this LO.

I just love using my Cricut!

Well, we packed and repacked last night for our upcoming trip this Wednesday to Alaska. It is so difficult to pack for a place that has extreme climate temperatures and to also pack for land and a cruise. Well, after discussing it again this morning, we are going to repack and downsize AGAIN tonight. I really do not like getting ready for an extended vacation. There is so much to do, but I know it will be all worth it.

Here's to Alaska, good times, lots of moose, bears and beautiful scenery!

sing it...

"School's out for summer!" Yes, my summer vacation officially started today at noon...and yes, I was singing that Alice Cooper tune the entire ride home from school today.

Here's to not having the alarm clock set for 5:30AM for the next 88 days.
