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!|

|"OUR" backyard for the week at least - it was AMAZING! |
I kept whining to Phil that I want one just like this!
|MY HAPPY PLACE!|
