Lots to share...and a RAK winner!

Yes...I am back to the real world. My trip with my hubby to Florida was all I imagined and so much more. The weather was lovely, 78-80 degrees all week and sunny of course. I even got a touch of sunburn as I relaxed by the pool and beach all week. We had some amazing meals, of course I ate seafood as much as I could. I figured if I was on vacation I was going to eat what I wanted to.

I popped around The Grand Floridian and Polynesian. They are my 2 favorite Disney resorts and I so enjoyed lazing about with a book and the sun and sand at my feet. My view from the beach at the Grand Floridian was amazing...

I spend a day at the spa getting a massage, manicure and pedicure and must say it was well worth the money.

This is my favorite picture I took that week. It is an evening shot at Disney's Beach Club Resort. I took it after dinner one night, YUM! A big shout out to Karen Russell for helping me improve my photography at her class last fall. Never would have gotten this shot without her!

Now I return to volunteering at school, soccer practice, and laundry. It was nice while it lasted though.

On to the scrappy news...the winner of my Pay it forward RAK is Erin Gudge.

Congrats girl! This cute little RAK will be mailed to you next week as soon as you send my your address. My email is Thanks for Paying it Forward!

Here is a little sneak peak of April's Altered Kit at
Serendipity Scrapbooks. You don't want to miss this one. It may very well be my favorite kit of all time. Check back on April 1st to see the rest.

LOTS to show and tell...and a RAK!!!

Well I have disappeared for a few weeks again but I am back with lots to share. The big news is this week is my son Jack's birthday! He will be seven on Monday and I just can't believe it myself. Here he is looking so cute!

He had more good news when he was chosen as one of 20 students from our school district out of over 4000+ to have his artwork on display at a local gallery. It included ages K-12 and we are so very proud of him.

Here he is with his winning art work:

For those of you who have wished my Mom well thank you so much, she is on the mend and feeling much better.

I have lots of fun DT layouts to share from the March kits at Serendipity Scrapbooks. As usually Kristen's kits are amazing so don't miss them.

I loved working on this months CT projects at TTS and had such fun with the Daisy D Maybe baby line and Sugared Alphabets from Doodlebug, be sure to check these out at the store at 35% they are a real deal! Coming up on March 14-15 is a crop at TTS. So for lots of fun challenges and prizes stop on by.

I want to thanks to Chris for the cutest pay it forward RAK ever. With lots of little goodies I am now ready to offer one of my own. So if you would like to win a RAK and will be willing to then pay it forward, let me know in your comments and I will pick one random winner. This RAK is really cute and includes a new red AMM storage bag filled with lots of goodies.

On Monday I am off to Orlando, FL for a mini vacation with my hubby. It is a business trip for him with conferences during the day but I am tagging along this time and really can't wait. I will make the most of my free time visiting LSS Stores and have scheduled an Aromatheraphy Massage, Manicure, and Pedicure at the Grand Floridian Spa. I will return with lots of pictures, pretty toes and nails, and probably about 5 extra pounds. So off I go and see you soon.
