This past This past weekend we had a wonderful weekend away up to the cities w/ most of our large bible study group! We stayed @ a waterpark holiday inn and it was so much fun. We all took our children along and they had a blast! It was so good for our family to get away from our 'crazy' and busy life here and try to unwind...although when u take your children w/ you i'm not sure u really get to unwind...especially when your baby doen't sleep well out of his own crib...grrr... never the less....still good to be gone.
now home again and this week we jump right back into crazy! ;) we are hoping to move this week Friday evening into our new house. really looking forward to it all, except diving into my scary stamp room downstairs. to move all that????? eeek!!! and that's just it... I HAVE to move it all for fear of anyone seeing it ...*wink*. oh well it will get done...it always does right?
on to some eye candy.... Jesse's sister opened her home to us this weekend for one of the nights, so i wanted to leave her a little surprise in the bedroom after we were gone. It was also her birthday this past week.
i've had this stamp set for quite some time but it's not one that i grab for super quick! i guess that's bc in the past i didn't really know what to do with it? I really like a lot of the words that are used though and am going to try to use it more and more!
i made this wine bottle topper in a snap. i punched a 1 1/4" hole in top to slip over the neck. Scored a nice crease and then embellished just the bottom portion. hard to see but i did use the crimper again on the topper too. the polka dot piece i ran through to make it pop!
