Hi!!!! Happy Sunday.
The summer is slowly coming to an end. I can smell autumn in the air... really!!! =) The past week I've been on vacation. The hubby and I take our anniversary week off work every year. Been doing it for 12 yrs now. It's a tradition. =) This time around we had lots of plans. Goes against the grain of relaxing during vacation, but its fun to get out and about once in a while.
Spent a few days at my mom's early in the week. I got to scrapbook with my mom while my hubby played 27 holes of golf with my step dad. Here are the layouts I can show.. my DT layout for Sept will have to wait. =)
My cousins at Disneyland. Used up more of my Yankee Doodles We R line.
My cousins.. used a Studio Calico kit, Paper Moon. and used my iRock for the first time. sketch from August Pagemaps.
and after a fun couple days at my mom's, we headed home to regroup before heading down to KY, IN, and OH for 2 days. Met up with my cousin and his wife. The hotel we stayed at was about a half way point for both of us. They live in TN. The location we were at is very unique because you can cross into 3 states with only a couple miles to drive. So, we hit up the Hollywood Casino in Indiana, and caught a Cincinnati Reds game. And did I mention the casino???? ha! it's hard for me to forget since I lost a bit of money playing my favorite game... blackjack. I did learn something though. Never play a table with an automatic card shuffler and never play the sucker bets if the table adds them. I learn something new every time I play.
Here are a couple fun pictures... this weekend I used my Instagram iphone app. I was mixing it up. =)
my hubby on the left with my cousin. heading into the casino.
Hollywood on the Roof. it's a live band act each night at the casino. this particular night it was an Elvis impersonator and a Blues Brother duo. followed up by a Rod Stewart act. All were really good. If you look close, Elvis is in the red shirt. lol.. =)
Reds memorabilia... I didn't get sucked in.
Sitting in our seats... =) It was perfect. Out of the sun and we had a good view of the field and the river in the background there.
So, I'm kinda back in action. I need to catch up, unpack, and get ready for the birthday celebration month over at Scrapbookers Anonymous. We are celebrating all month long for our 1 year birthday!!! yippie!!! I'll be back with my new September DT layout and the challenge details on the 1st.
See you soon.. =)
