Vacation Layouts

I'm Back! We had a wonderful time on Ocracoke Island and went with our Wonderful Friends from Virginia. We had not seen them in about 4 years and it was nice to get together and talk about our children and what they were up to. They are such good friends that when we returned on Thursday, we started renovating our kitchen. All we did was mention what we were thinking about doing with the cabinets and they said "Let's do it" and we did. That is what you call friends. We worked for two solid days moving cabinets and painting, adding lights under the counter and just were amazed at what we accomplished. I just love it and love them.


I did a few layouts from our trip below and actually got the layout sketch from Triple the Sketch Friday and it worked wonderfully for the trip. Isn't it great when a plan comes together. I also had to add 3 embellishments and I added the small shells I picked up on the beach in Ocracoke along with the silver '09 and attached them by using silver brads. So there are the 3 embellishments. I just love the way it turned out. Of course I had to do a second page to match the first and you will also see it below. Thanks so much for looking and I am so glad to be back to stampin and blogging!
