Happy 23rd Anniversary!!

Today Bob and I celebrate 23 years of marriage!!! We have been greatly blessed!! What do you think about my wedding hat??? My parents are also in this photo. If you have seen previous posts you will know that they celebrated 50 years on July 15th.

The next pictures are from our cruise vacation. If you ever get the chance to zip line in a rain forest DO IT!!!

The "free" rappelling was out of my comfort zone but INCREDIBLE!!! You just walked off that platform you see over Bob.

Rappelling beside a waterfall is a little daunting. I had never done something like this!! 

Bob looked like a pro!

The last picture includes are handsome boys.We will cherish these memories forever!!! I can't wait till we celebrate 50!!!

July Diva Dare

I'm playing along with the Verve July Diva Dare. 

"This month we dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - Sentimental About Paper!  It's time to dig into all that gorgeous patterned paper you've been hoarding saving (we know you have some!!)!  Showcase all those amazing sentiment stamps (no images) to create a new and never before seen project!  Paired with pretty patterned paper, Verve's famous sentiments will take center stage!" 

I had been hoarding saving this wonderful paper from My Mind's Eye - Whirlybird "Best Friends" Tweet Tweet paper. I thought the sentiment from Verve's Bountiful Blessings was perfect for the BIG bird!

50th Wedding Anniversary

Today my parents celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary. The traditional anniversary gift is gold, but have you seen the price of GOLD!!! I'd decided to create a book that captures their 50 years together. I thought I would share a few pages. 

My brother and I have been blessed with wonderful parents. We are thankful for the example they have been in our own marriages. Our children could not ask for better grandparents. They are loved and spoiled!

We are all cruising together this week to celebrate! I'm sure we will have stories to tell. The quote below states: Love at first sight is easy to understand; it's when two people have been looking at each other for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle. Amy Bloom

Let freedom ring!!!

Happy 4th of July to ALL!!!! I snapped the photo below earlier in the week at the local city hall. The flags were so pretty. I hope you are enjoying a day with family and friends.

Today is also my oldest son's 20th birthday. The Papertrey Forum was talking about Erin Lincoln's Dot Spot fireworks card here (scroll down the post). I used that as inspiration for Reed's card.

Be safe!!!!
