I’m back!

Ha…I bet you didn't even know I was gone, did you?  Did you miss me?  I was able to preload my cards for the week.  Hope you enjoyed the Tour de Freaks and our showcase of retired products!  If you missed it, scroll back to my last post and take the tour…it stays up indefinitely!

 

But…this is where I was last week…in Destin, Florida.  LOVELY weather (except for a couple thunderstorms at night) and not too much of a crowd until Friday when people started coming in for the weekend.  We used to go to Destin for every Spring Break when the kids were younger.  It was nice going when it wasn't crowded and you didn't need to wait in line for dinner, or get stuck in traffic on the way!

 

 

Normally when we go, we stay in the Sandestin complex.  Since we booked at the last minute, we couldn't find any one bedrooms available in Sandestin.  So, we ended up staying downtown Destin and the Sundestin Condo complex.  This is the view from our 12th floor condo.  GORGEOUS!  I could get used to that view every day!  Every morning we walked along the shoreline a couple miles.

 

 

We saw a couple dolphins playing one morning…they put on quite a show!  This fisherman never looked up and saw how close he was to them!

 

 

Here I am standing on the balcony looking east.  The sand is SO white and soft and cool…and the water so green and blue!  Beautiful part of the world!

 

Hope you enjoyed the peak into my vacation!  Now back to the REAL world and my stamping business!  I have a LOT going on over the next few weeks and have depleted my stockpile of cards to show on my blog!  Better get working, huh?  lol!

Did you wonder where I've been?  Every spring and fall I attend a long weekend stamping/scrapbooking retreat.  Many of the same ladies come year after year and we've gotten to be good friends and enjoy catching up on what has happened over the previous months…weddings, new babies, new jobs…just LIFE in general!  Here is a group shot of us.  LOTS of creative talent in this group.  We spend all four days, three nights working on whatever projects we like.

 

 

I did get a lot done and will be posting my creations over the next few weeks.  Today I need to catch up and get my Alabama buddy to the airport to go back home.  I've enjoyed my visit with Linda SO much!
