Classic photo, I know! We went to a logging show on vacation, it was really entertaining. Dante was given a section of tree/log to take home, that was fun to pack...

On to the winner of my gently read book and some scrappy stuff is:

Let's Talk Food

A couple weeks back we went to a restaurant off my wish list. Yep, I have a list of places that I really want to try! There are a variety of places, some a little fancy- but most are great hole in the wall types that catch my eye.
One of my all time favorite dishes is a chile relleno meal that is at a drive through Mexican restaurant. And, they are open 24 hours a day.  I will admit to ordering that dish pretty close to breakfast time!
On vacation, I read Kitchen Confidential, Anthony Bourdain's book. Since it was given to me, I would love to pass it along to someone that is interested! Just leave me a comment on this post (and I am curious what your favorite food is!) I will pick a winner next Wednesday. And if you like, I will add a couple scrappy goodies to the package:)

The Latest....

The whole family did an Alaskan cruise for a week. It was beautiful and so peaceful!

Saw lots of wildlife...

And kisses:)
I spent almost 7 days with no internet or phone, and I have to say it was a nice technology break. I really am going to try to get on some type of schedule for my scrapping and computer things that I like to do. I roll much better with a calender, just need to dig out under all the dirty laundry that is everywhere!

A Crafty Go Lucky Sketch

Out of all the Easter pictures that I have from this year, this one really made me grin. The eggs are cut from a Sizzix die, and the sentiment was just calling my name for the layout!

A Royal Breakast

 Design your own wedding dress out of frosting.

 Crowns were involved.

 Fruit pies, and handmade scones (not by me!) Best scones I have ever had.

And, curd.

We did not get up to watch the wedding live, but rather skimmed through all the best parts on dvr. I'll take any reason to wear fancy shoes in the AM :)

Scrapbook Sussies May Kit

 We (or actually Phil) spotted Dora on the way out of Easter brunch. Audrey was so excited, and the May Sussies kit was a perfect fit for these photos.

 We dyed Easter eggs that afternoon, they had such fun!
A couple of months ago there was a walk-a-thon at Dante's school. I wanted to showcase a couple different parts of that morning. Love the hot air balloons.

 Here is a photo of the kit...Going to work on some Mother's Day goodies with it next!
