True Love

Hi! I'm back. Back from the most wonderful vacation ever! Charleston, South Carolina is an amazing place to visit and I look forward to sharing our pictures over the next few posts.

Before we left, I nearly finished this scrapbook page. I just added a few buttons.

From our recent photo shoot, here's a picture of my honey and I. I'm a really lucky girl to have this man in my life!

I don't know if you recognize this older patterned paper with all the circles? It's from Cosmo Cricket's Joy Ride collection and I paired it with Jillibean's bicycle paper from their Blossom Soup line. And a very old Scenic Route striped paper. All these papers were in my scraps bin....yippee!

I cut out the colored portion of each circle and then hand stitched the circle frames. I love the look of all the circles and stitching!

These circles also made for a cool photo frame.

The finishing touches include an assortment of buttons and a few scattered butterflies. This was page was a lot of fun! I'm going to browse my tons of old patterned papers to see if I can find some more cool designs to make stitchy pages with!

Well, I thought I'd leave you with a list of things I learned on vacation...

Time travels at the speed of light while you are on vacation! Thank goodness for photos or I might just think it was all a dream!

Speaking of dreams...I learned that our dreams may not be our own! Compliments of the movie Inception, staring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Godiva Milk Chocolate Liqueur is incredibly delicious! We will be purchasing a bottle as soon as possible! Served over ice is perfection on hot summer days!

Even with a heat index of 114 degrees, I can eat an ice cream cone without wasting a single drop! It would be a crime to let a drop of Haagen Dazs go to waste! ;)

You can never have too many $5 dollar bills on vacation because iced Latte's and ice cream cones all cost $4 and change!

Choosing a place to dine in Charleston is most difficult since there are more than 100 restaurants with world class chefs within walking distance of your hotel!

No matter how wonderful vacation is.....there's no place like home! :) Kathy

Charleston is a lovely place; we've been there just once and it was too brief a time, just a few days. LOVE your layout with all the stitching, Kathy - what a treasure!

Sounds heavenly. Since we are on the west coast...we are heading down the Washington, Oregon coast next weekend in the 63 Volkswagen van for a little R and R. I hope we have as much fun as you did on your vacation.
