Another Day in Paradise!

If you are here for the Robert's Imaginisce Giveaway... click HERE!

I hope everyone is staying in and warm from this nasty winter storm that has hit many states! We even got nailed with it here in Dallas! It has been an icy mess! So.... my husband and I decided to get out and go somewhere warm! I will be gone for the weekend but I will be back Monday to announce the winner of the Robert's give away... be sure to come back to see if you are the winner!!

Before I get to my LO, I have to do a Happy Birthday shout out to my daughter Courtney!! She is 21 years old today!!

Today is Thursday which means that we have a new challenge for you at Sketches in Thyme! I pulled out some pictures from our vacation in Maui a few years ago to make this LO...



I really liked the photos and since the papers are already so busy, I decided to keep the embellishments to a minimum! Here is the sketch we are working with this week. It is from Sketchabilities. I liked the clean lines of this sketch so this time I didn't wander too far from it! Jump on over to the Sketches in Thyme blog to see all the amazing projects my dt sisters created!

I have been lucky enough to receive a few awards that I thought I would share with you!
My Cheer Camp LO was selected at Club CK to be highlighted this week!

So now I get this cute little blinkie!!

I also have received two blog awards. The first one is from Janice at Cricutology. She as passed on the Stylish Blogger award to me!

 If you have not been to Cricutology, you need to check it out! She does the best tutorial videos! I have learned a lot of nice tips from her!

Apparently I also have Attitude because my good friend, Sandy passed this award on to me!



Sandy has a blog called Details by Sandy and the title of her blog could not be more perfect! She is the queen of details and embellishments! She has this amazing ability to layer embellishments and her LOs are absolutely stunning!! You need to stop by Sandy's blog and check out her work!! Thank you Sandy for passing this Attitude award on to me!

Since I have received both of these awards before, I am going to make up my own rules!! heehee!! I am passing this award on to all my wonderful followers who have not received them yet! Feel free to pick them up and take them home!!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will be back Monday to catch up on all the blogs and announce the winner of my big giveaway!!

I really like how you balanced the patterned paper with solids (a struggle for me). It's a beautiful page.

Congratulations on being featured. I can see how your page was an obvious choice -- so cute and fun!
