May 19 2011
So like usual, I always have lots of things to do before I go on a trip. This trip is extremely special because it's the Alaska Stampin'up! Cruise. I love Stampin'up! events as it keeps me rejuvenated. And May is a great time just before our 2010-2011 catalog comes to an end.
I only slept a few ours and packed last minute once again. It wasn't the packing that kept me awake, it's the laundry. My dad & step mom Karen are staying and sitting the kids at home so they are comfy in their own things. I wanted laundry to be all done so he wouldn't need to bother. They plan on enlarging the garden while we are gone. See it's the first year that we decide to do a real garden. Tony and the girls planted pumpkins and cucumbers. But my dad is going to add extra veggies, like onions and tomato plants …. So the girls are really excited and I am reassured that they will have a great time while we are gone on this fabulous trip. I hope there is internet connection so I can keep you posted. Right now, I'm sitting at the Vancouver airport awaiting our next flight to Seattle. There is a 3hrs time difference, so we had breakfast for the second time around!
I wanted to share today my Nautical Banner. If you love parties or have children, I suggest investing in the Pennant Die. You can view more matching projects HERE.
|Pennant Stampin' Up! Bigz Xl Die #113483|
You can use the Pennant die to create two sizes of festive pennants from any piece of card stock or Designer Series paper. This design is a Shelli original.
Keep in mind you need your Big shot #113439 and the extended cutting pads #113478. I truly thing it was a great investment since I don't need to buy a banner for every occasion.
