Sassy Cheryl's ~ Show Me # 35

I have so much to show you this week....My husband had to work all week, so no excursion days....

I started and completed our 30th wedding anniversary cruise from 2009! It was our cruise to Bermuda from Charleston, SC

On Sunday I wanted to go house hunting, but my Realtor didn't have houses ready for me to to make me feel better, I also took a ride out to the local scrapbook store to take a look at their QK (Lifestyle Crafts) Tropical release....I had already received the ones I ordered. I thought I could see the ones I didn't have "in person". You will see the adorable palm trees I got, and have already used below.

I made the coconut card at their "make & take"....The drink umbrella is one of the new dies. The coconut is just made by a circle, that is cut off. Let me correct that.....I tried to make the "make & take" card there.....I needed "my tools" My atg gun, and my pop dots, and my I re-did it at home.... AND MADE IT BETTER!!

Below this coconut card is my recipe swap.....Not due until the middle of August.....but all done. I originally was going to use the houses that I have been coloring off and on for weeks now....but didn't. Instead I used them on my Cruise layout.

The last Picture is of Cinnamon. He just loves to watch out the window. We have a sliding glass door that looks over the golf course. He likes to watch the mowers, the big white birds, and any lizard that is brave enough to climb up to the third floor balcony! I do keep the blinds closed to keep some of the heat out of the condo, but that is no problem for Cinnamon!

This weekend we are taking an excursion to Naples, Fl. We have visited Naples many times, as my husband's mom lived there for years.

Sassy Cheryl's Show Me #34

Good Morning- Happy Show Me! I am have been enjoying the Bugaboo Challenge this week. The theme is Christmas in July. I just need to be careful...I can't get burned out so early. Christmas is not my favorite Holiday...(Retail killed that for me!)....but is fun to get those snowman out, especially with the hot weather.

Watching HGTV, and coloring.....and hoping I will find a house here in South Florida. I just wish the people here would have listened to HGTV, and cleaned, uncluttered, and made their home presentable for the camera....Really different than are just not neat, and clean....they don't even clean them up for the pictures!
Just below are my house images again...I am hoping to get the change of address cards done soon. I signed up for a recipe swap....crazy huh....but I think I will use this paper and the house images...hmm I need 3 embellishments...and I have to do 7 of them....

Maintenance people for this condo gave us a 2 day window to upgrade the shower shower head ...they have come and it is done.....

Sassy Cheryl's Show Me #33

Little late with the show me this week....Awesome week~ A few wonderful days spent with our son, Brendan.
This is all the stuff I have been working on....coloring , and I started to make a card for the Cottage Cutz challenge. I hope to start the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge card today.

Brendan arrived safely from PuntaCana, Dominican Republic. He traveled with PB Dye (famous golf course designer)...who lives here in the West Palm Beach area, part time. Brendan bought a car, (he didn't want to pay that baggage fee again and buy a car in SC). He drove to South Carolina, with His car FULL with his 5 plus over-sized bags. He is visiting friends in the North Myrtle Beach area for a few days before he starts his new position at Wild Dunes, at Isle of Palms, SC. His first stop was to see Sarah...He said he needed a real haircut!Thank You Sarah...I know Brendan missed you. I miss Sarah too, my hair stylist and scrapbook buddy. I miss Sharon also, especially with free days to scrapbook and no body to scrapbook with me except my kitty! BTW- Cinnamon was glad to see Brendan....
Brendan brought me this wonderful bird book, and all these Pesos~ 1 Dominican Peso = 0.0264 US Dollars! Keeping my scrapbooking in mind....
definitely a scrapbook item... just can't use them all!! But I will find something for them! I got to speak to Jennifer on the phone...she helped Brendan ease the stress of car buying out of town. Thank You Jennifer.
