Sneak Peek - CKC mini Album & Canvas!!!

Hi Everyone - I've been having scrap withdrawal since I was on vacation, and then playing catch up with life, over the last 3 weeks, but I am so looking forward to the last weekend of July where I will be assisting my favorite Local Scrapbook Store - SCRAP-A-DOODLE DOO  while vending at the VENDOR FAIR at the CKC in Valley Forge, PA!!

I added the finishing touches on this ADORABLE mini album using THE HEART OF TEXAS Chipboard album and these awesome papers by Mollie & Mac.

Here is a SNEAK PEAK of the adorable Mini OVATION VINTAGE ALBUM that I have designed for them to sell!

It features beautiful papers in Navy, Cream and Burgundy, Ribbons, pearlized buttons and complete instructions for assembly.

Scrap-a-Doodle Doo will have LOTS of kits and great deals at the event - so mark your calendar - and try to attend this FUN SCRAPBOOKING EVENT!!

Please stop by "THE DOO" booth and say HI if you make it!  WAIT until you see the COOL purple shopping bags we will have!!

It's the perfect album to store and share fun family memories - it would make a GREAT gift too!

OH - here is a BONUS PEEK for you too!

This CANVAS kit will also be available for sale, and includes complete instructions too!


Vacation FUN!!

Well - we are back from vacation -and it doesn't seem like it has ONLY been just 1 week - as this past week has been a CRAZY ONE!  Between catching up on work - passing the torch for the volunteer program I have been co-chair of for the last 8 years, and life in general all helped the week to just FLY on by!

I am now busy helping our Local Scrapbook Store  SCRAP-A-DOODLE DOO in our final preparations to attend and vend at the CREATING KEEPSAKES SCRAPBOOK CONVENTION from July 27th to the 30th, and finishing up projects and kits that we will be selling  ( SEEK PEEK POST  to follow!)  I am so looking forward to this event!  I've never been to the CKC and we have LOTS of great kits and items we will be selling - I hope to see some of you there!

I wanted to share a little bit of our vacation with you - as we had a great time, and are so blessed to have been able to take this fun adventure together as a family.

WEEK #1 was spent with THOUSANDS of other TEAMSTERS in Beautiful Las Vegas!!  Phil spent the day at The Paris Hotel, while Nick, Jake and I spent our days relaxing at The Venetian and doing a little sightseeing on our own. It was OVER 100 degrees every day - some days as high as 109!!  But they say it is a dry heat --RIGHT!  It's dry because it is so hot - the sweat dries on your skin before you can even feel it!  LOL!  We did have fun! Even got to hear a speech by Jimmy Hoffa and our Vice President Joe Biden - Here are just a few of the pictures:

On our way back from seeing The Beatles LOVE!  It was AWESOME!

Me at the Flamingo

I saw John Bon Jovi there!!

BRUCE and I had a BLAST!

Jack Sparrow was SO MUCH FUN!!

Jake and Nick got to meet Larry King too!

But our ALL TIME favorite Vegas Celebrity was ELVIS - selling COLD WATER for just $1.00!

Week #2 - we flew from Vegas to LAX and rented a car to drive to Del Mar - It was our first time in California - but hopefully not our last!  Of course we had to drive down Rodeo Drive, had lunch on the Sunset Strip, and made sure we saw and took a photo of this:

I really would love to come back to California for a future vacation!

We rented a BEAUTIFUL HOME in Del Mar for the week - I could have spent every minute there - but we did go out and see the sights - San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, San Diego Wild Safari Park - and the San Diego County Fair -  ALL of these locations deserve their own BLOG entry - so for now - I will just share photos of the the LOVELY HOME we rented through VACATION RENTALS BY OWNERS - Just click on  HOUSE IN DEL MAR / SAN DIEGO You should check it out!!  It was AWESOME!

Take care,
