Happy Sunday!!

We had an absolutely gorgeous weekend!! WOW!! The sun was out and shining, except for Saturday with a little bit of wind, it made it cold, but today was amazing!! Friday night we had a Retirement Party for Jared's dad. He retired after working for 35years. Can you believe it?! It was at a restaurant, good times. All the family was there, and they had made these really cool posters of Jared's dad in movies, like he was Braveheart, with his face on Mel Gibson;s body, it was pretty cool!! My fave was him as part of the Beatles...Jared's dad told us some stories of all the years at work. It was good!!

Saturday, I had a scrap date with Connie. I went to her place and we scrapped all day pretty much. She mad me lunch..pizza and Caesar salad!! Very good!! Tons of fun chatting and creating!! I made a card and a little notebook for my sister. She leaves on Thursday for the Dominican Republic with her boyfriend..super lucky!! Jared had to work and he was in a football tournament so, I didn't see him at all, pretty much all weekend which totally sucks!!

And today..woke up late...and met my parents in Steveston. It was so nice to walk and hang out with my parents!! We went for coffee to Steveston coffee and then walked around in all the little shops. Bought some fruit and veggies. It was fun, I always enjoy it. Then came home and did my CJ entry for Alice's album..which was all about things that make us happy...


I got my Story of Own March kit this past Monday, and I couldn't wait to scrap so I did quite a few over the week..and it was so easy with everything there. I think this was my fave kit so far with all the yummy goodies, the papers and I just LOVED the color. And who could not love the extras were called "Laverne and Shirley"? The name said it all..loved that show!! I got so many pages out of this kit and cards..and I'm not done yet want to make a mini album but here's what I came up with....





And the cards...I love the little turtle stamp that was in the kit..he so super cute!!


More turtle cards will be made for sure!!

I hope everyone had a good weekend!! I better go and clean-up my mess in the kitchen before I watch tv. It's a new Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters...can't wait!! Have a good week..it's a short one!! YAY!!

You and I should have a scrapday some time! ARTistry totally got me back into the scrapping mood! And it's not like we live far from eachother either! Actually, it's sort of funny we've never met!

Love the new layouts, as well as the adorable cards! I may have to start getting kits too...
