I'm Baaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!!!!!



We are back safely from a wonderful week of vacation in Florida!! The drive down and back was lots of fun with several stops at interesting points (well, interesting to certain parties)in Tennessee, Kentucky and Georgia!

One day was spent at a State Park in Florida looking at the amazing foliage and hunting for alligators and birds and lizards!! We actually found some too....I was not too thrilled about the 'gator, myself!! We drove to the gulf coast and went to the pier at St. Petersburg and also St. Pete's Beach and saw some dolphins playing in the surf around sunset! It was so cool and I was more excited about the cute little dolphins that that 'gator, fer sure!! We also spent a day at Universal Studios riding Revenge of The Mummy and watching Shrek 4-D and then another day at Islands of Adventure riding The Hulk and Dueling Dragons!! I thought I'd be too old to handle the thrill rides but I'm happy to report that I am NOT too old!! In fact, we rode The Mummy 4 times, the Dueling Dragons twice and The Hulk twice!! Yeehaw!!

And of course, EVERY day included shopping of some sort!!! I visited AC Moore, Michaels, Joann's and Hobby Lobby! That was the most fun for me and I came back with lots of stampin' goodies!!

My day today consisted of mounds and mounds of laundry, grocery shopping, organizing my treasures, opening tons of mail and going through about a thousand digital photographs!!! I am going to need to scrap several books of this trip!!! I can't wait to get started!!!

So today I am posting an altered board book that I made a couple of weeks ago. It features pictures from a special evening for my Dad!! He was inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame in our hometown, for being on the Championship Soccer team in 1975!! It was a very special night with our whole family and lots of friends that we hadn't seen in years. I used distressed patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket which I distressed a little more using sandpaper around the edges. I also used ribbon and lots of metal embellishments. I have put it in a place of honour on our buffet and hutch in the livingroom. This was very fun and easy to do. I actually made it in less than an hour!! You can get the premade 'naked' board books in different sizes at your local scrapbooking store!!

MAN, it's good to be home!!!!
