snow. again?

We are back from the Caribbean - greeted by more snow. Why again do I live in Cleveland? The cruise was awesome. Probably the best vacation of my life. The boys had so much fun with my parents and Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Phil. The best part??? When we arrived in Ft. Lauderdale to transfer our luggage to to the ship, we were presented with a HUGE surprise. Steve's younger brother Curtis and his girl Melissa surprised us and went on the trip as well. Talk about fun! I don't know how he and my father were able to keep it a secret for the last 5 months. I took over 400 pictures and will busy the next few days editing in Lightroom. Prepare to see lots of beach pages.

Check out the KI Blog today for a really cool thing that happened to me...

Here are my January layouts for Work In Progress. Trish's kit had lots of October Afternoon and new "mirror" mini album from Heidi Swapp.






I also wanted to share the mini monsters I made the boys for Christmas. My mom is still belly laughing that I was actually able to sew something besides paper. They turned out pretty cute and the boys love them.
(Note: remind children not to leave toys on floor where little puggies can chew them. The red monster has a few minor wounds but Frank was REALLY sorry about it afterwards.)


Stay warm.
