My package....that was sent to Reminisce on January 12....NEXT DAY...was found TODAY!!! It was found in the Land of Misfit least that's what I call the place! So, tomorrow it should be back home!!!

The sad part is my creations didn't get to be used as a selling tool for Reminisce at CHA ANAHEIM....after almost killing myself to get the projects done!!! enough of my whining.... at least there is summer CHA CHICAGO!!! I may just bring the projects myself to make sure they get there!!!

This layout of Lysie and Emily is a combo collection layout.....a little bit of "UNWRITTEN"and "LUCKY ME"! and their amazing.....Glitter Factory!! I wish I could show you a close up of the flower....cause it is WAY COOL.....but I don't have a picture of it!! When my box arrives...I take a closeup of it!!!

Just had to share this....

So after spending a week basking by a pool...I went through a whole bottle of 30 spf!!! OH but SO worth it!!! I am rested and regenerated....with TONS OF PICTS to scrap....but I just had to post this one picture!!

We spent a lot of mornings getting up and going to check out the sunrise....which were amazing...but the last morning it was packing frenzy...our bags had to be outside the door by 7:15 I had done most of my packing the day I wandered out onto our porch and there it was....the most colorful sunset ever....Deb was still packing so I grabbed my camera and ran out the door.....and this is what I saw...

What a way to end a FABULOUS trip!!!

I'm sure you will be seeing may more pict popping up in my layouts....
but this one ROCKS THEM ALL!!!
