Back from the Beach...and the wait goes on.

We are back from the beach! Good news, bad news...we no longer have sand in our ears but now it is back to the real world and school is right around the corner, ACK! Our weather was fantastic and it was great spending time with family, chatting, mini golfing, shopping, and catching up on my reading (Twilight) in the sand with the waves crashing around my feet. The boys wore themselves out boogie boarding and had a great time playing with their cousin. Here are a few pictures from our trip.






I finished my Chatterbox goodies and will share them when I can. I am happy with what I created and now the wait goes on till the announcement of the final team comes out. If nothing else I am very proud to have made the short list and came out with some great projects. Lets just hope they like them too, lol!

I have not had much time to scrap but I did sneak in a quick layout using these MAA acrylic gears, these are too fun and perfect for kids layouts.


JustRite Stampers has been extremely generous to the MAA DT and I soon will have a bunch of goodies to share using their products. I just can't wait to play with these fun stamps. I mean how cool are these.

Last but not least I got this cool blog award from my cyber buddies Scrap Chris and Marci.

Thanks girls, you are too sweet. I am not good at picking just a few people so consider yourself awarded and here are the rules to play.

1- we have to pass it forward to 5 people;
2- Four of them should be frequently visiting your blog
3- One of them should live in 'the other corner' of the world...hehehehe
4- you should return to the one who send you the award...

Happy Scrapping!
