We are having a great time up north at my Mom & Dad’s lake place (a.k.a. the cabin). Yesterday was forecasted to be mostly cloudy, but it turned out to be pretty sunny and very warm – the perfect day to be outside! Uncle Don took Luke and cousin Robbie fishing after breakfast.
Then the sun peeked out around 1:30 PM, and we all rushed down to the lake to seize that opportunity to get in the water. Surprisingly the lake wasn’t the typical ice-cold temp that it usually is at this time of year, AND the sky stayed mostly sunny longer than we thought it would. We stayed down on the dock until it was time to make dinner – for about 4 hours with the sun on our skin to prove it.
After dinner Robbie and Luke helped little cousin Yvette (who is dressed in her Moana costume – too cute!), and they all went on a treasure hunt that Grandma had set up. She also planted a bag of treats for ALL the grandkids at the end of the hunt. So we even have some goodies to bring home to my other son, Nick who is staying home with Daddy.
I hope you have been able to take time to relax, spend time with loved ones, and spend time thinking about the loved ones of your past this weekend, too. We are heading back home today, but not sure what time. The forecast is looking like it’s gonna be another beautiful day.
Before I say goodbye, I want to remind you all that the 2017-18 Catalog is coming to a close on May 31st – in just 3 days.

Here are a few more card ideas using some of the products in the Share What You Love suite. Three of these are swap cards from those creative demos in my swap group (names are in the watermarks of the photos) and the last one I made when I was playing around with color and needed a quick card for some of those achievers in my team.
Isn’t this a great way to show off both sides of the designer paper AND make the most of those 12″ x 12″ sheets?! You can get six 4″ x 5-1/4″ pieces of designer paper from one sheet if you want to make several cards in this style.
Wink of Stella! So hard to photograph, but it gives cards that beautiful subtle sparkle.
Here is another sample with that Wink of Stella in the center of the embossed flower.
I LOVE this embossing folder!
