Much Needed Update!

Hello everyone! Work has been so crazy this passed week since we got back from vacation. I still need to go through and organize my pictures. I really didn't take as many as I would have liked, but I was too busy enjoying myself! I discovered a new favorite artist in one of the galleries down there, too. Her name is Suzy Pena- her website is Her work is absolutley amazing. I think she does it all on photoshop. I got a couple small things (I'll post those later), but I'm definitely going to save up for a big one.

We got to do all kinds of fun stuff. We went out on a big catamaran for a snorkeling trip. I've never snorkeled before, so that was sooo cool! Poor Chad, there was a whole SCHOOL of Tarpon just taunting him. He'll get a big one soon...! For me, the highlight was that we got to see a stage production of Rocky Horror! OMG it was SO AWESOME! Chad and I were 'Virgins' to the show, so we didn't dress up. Seriously, Key West has got to be one of the best places to see that. They're so laid back and NOT uptight about stuff like that. It completely amazed me how those guys could dance in those platform spike heels.

Okay, so I FINALLY got to scrap again yesterday! It's been almost a month since I've done a layout. Melissa (BellesMommy) organized Pub Day over at 2 Peas. It was an awesome all day crop with lots of challenges and RAKs. I've never done an online crop before, and I gotta say, it was SO much fun! I hope they do it often! I didn't get to participate in National Scrapbooking Day, so this was great for me. So, here's the layouts. I'm SO happy with them, I just can't stop looking at them!

This one was for the "Don't be Serious, Have fun with Yourself" challenge. These photos are from my senior year of High School- I was 16 in the top, and 17 in the bottom, but they were just perfect for this. I used alot of stuff from my Jenni Bowlin May kit here. I've only stitched on one page before, so I decided to give it a go again....I'm flippin' obsessed! Alot of my pages will probably be stitched now. One of the best comments I got was "This is an nice FreeStyle page you've got here!" How cool is that!? Okay, so here it is:

The next one was the "Defining Words" challenge. You take a photo of yourself or someone you love, and think of words that describe them. I've been wanting to scrap this photo, so I used it. Plus with Father's Day coming up, I've got Daddy on the brain. More stitching on this one...told you I was obsessed! Everything but the black MM stickers are from the Jenni Bowiln April kit.

I can only scrap until about 3pm today, though, because our friends (the ones whose daughter's wedding I photographed) are taking us out to dinner as a thank you. We're going to Buca di Beppo. World's best tiramisu, here I come! Yum!
