Hi There!



Guess where we just came home from?  A gorgeous week in Ocean Isle, North Carolina!  Lots of relaxation at the beach (with some awesome waves!) and at the pool too...more pictures to come, but I thought you'd like these two of my happy little guys. How about Collin's volcano and Marcel's big muscles?
I was itching to get inky last night (yes...after 11 hours in the car) and my mum certainly helped out.  We came home to a stocked kitchen.  She is simply the best and it certainly saved us from having to go out to the grocery lsast night.  So...I decided to have a go at the current Verve Get Your Diva On Challenge. The challenge was to have a tag on your card. Hope you have a fabulous Sunday!  We're off to the Cincinnati Reds game this afternoon.

  1. I always liked red and turquoise together and would never have thought too add a splash of lavender. It looks awesome!

    Great shots of the boys - looks like they had a blast! :)

  10. And to think, I struggled with a 4 hour car journey the other day! LOL! Looks like you had a wonderful time by the sea! Our trip was sunny for the first half but very soggy for the last half (basically cracked open the bottles of wine and scrabble ;D) but still had fun!
    Can't believe you've already managed to get inky! Love the different DPs on this sweet card and yhour scattered gems - you've certainly not lost your mojo on the beach! :D
