Vegas Baby!

Hi everyone! My kids and I are just wrapping up a week in Las Vegas. My dad has a timeshare here in a fabulous resort just a few blocks from the strip. We have been having a blast!

We’ve seen the free shows at the Bellagio, Treasure Island and the Mirage. Last night we went to the Chris Angel/Cirque du Soleil show at the Luxor and it was fantastical. The kids went on the roller coaster at New York, New York. We also went to the Shark Reef in Mandalay Bay.

We had a moment of panic when we lost Dad in the Luxor just moments before the show. He has mild Alzheimer’s and really can’t be left alone in unfamiliar places at all. Not even for a second. Luckily security located him within minutes. The whole episode gave me flashbacks to the Phoenix incident – lost Dad for 2 days.

So today is about relaxing and packing. and migrating back to real life!


Just before vacation, I created these cute cards using the Love Birds Simply Scrappin’ Kit. The kits are wonderful for scrapbooking and awesome for card making as well.

These cards are part of the 15 Lovely Cards class I’ll be having on Tuesday.

The colors featured in this kit are Blushing Bride, So Safron, Certainly Celery and Early Espresso. I added various embellishments and ribbons. Lots of sentiments are used so the card set can be used throughout the year.

After class this set will be available for purchase at Arts and Scraps.

Have a great day!!!
