I'm back (and burnt!) :-)

Got back from the beach, and we had such a great time! My only complaint is that the trip wasn't long enough ;-) Saturday was our only full day there, so the girls and I hit the beach and stayed the entire day. It was THE perfect beach day! The temp was in the 80's, the water was cold at first touch but warmed up, and the company was perfect :-) I wasn't planning to get my pregnant self all the way out past the breaking waves, but I couldn't resist... and i'm so glad I did! That night, the girls and I saw SITC2. I wasn't expecting a quality movie, and it definitely wasn't, but it was entertaining.

Here's a layout I made shortly before I left - just for fun! Haven't done one of those in awhile! The papers are mostly Crate Paper, the letters are Sass, Doodlebug and Heidi Swapp, and the frame is MM. I also had fun with my new Martha Stewart border punch.
Chloe started camp today at her dance school. It's princess camp every morning this week. Noah is going this week, Tues-Fri mornings, so we got to have a mommy/son date this morning, which was long overdue. We went bowling, and I have to say, I think I did better with my 7 month pregnant belly than I normally do lol. We then played some arcade games and hit the store before picking up Chloe.... great morning!

Oh, btw, we're having a blog hop this Friday morning at AMM - it should be lots of fun!

I'm pretty exhausted these days, so i'm going to go relax a bit before we start bedtime for the kids. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Oooh, the beach! I want to go, I want to go! Would sure love to put my tootsies in the sand and bob in the waves for a bit. Sounds delicious!
Love your beautiful page, Staci! The way you used the die-cut paper is fabulous, and I love the titlework. Love the masking and the tape measures bits, too.
