My Vacation - Cabo San Lucas

Pueblo Bonito Resort Sunset Beach - Cabo San Lucas What a fabulous vacation I had!!! My hubby and I went to Cabo San Lucas for 7 days..... away from work, household stuff, children... all of it. Just us in paradise!!! It had been a while since we had "alone time" like this. In a nut shell, we spent a day in the spa getting a couple's massage, visited the famous Arches, swam in the many pools, relaxed on comfortable luxurious Gazebo's with beds on a secluded beach, sailed on a Sunset Cruise, had some delicious meals, spent happy hour at Nikki Beach, and partied at Cabo Wabo and The Giggling Marlins. What a week we had!!! This was one of my best vacations (next to my honeymoon in Hawaii)! Here are some of my favorite photos I took:

Crop at Pinecone Press

I was so happy I was able to attend the crop on Friday at Pinecone Press. I had a really nice time. Even though it was really crowded and we have very limited space, it didn't matter because I got to spend the day with the girls and my paper(lol) and we had a ball!! :) Here are the layouts I did:
Creative Scrappers Sketch Challenge
Paper Secrets Stash Challenge - I used Die Cut, Stickles and Clip.

This layout I made for my 10 year old Daughters album. I used a PageMaps Sketch.


This layout was not done at the crop. It was done yesterday in the middle of me unloading from the crop! If you know me, then you know that I don't like to keep scraps. But when I was unloading, I couldn't help to use these scraps! They are actually the back side of another paper I used in one of the above layouts ( I think the Vacation one). I was too cute to throw away. I didn't have any pictures ready, but since I was working on my daughters album, I knew I had something to go with it. So I just threw something together in about 30-40 mins and got this!
