Cutie Pie is the perfect name for this little cake(pie) slice box made with the Cutie Pie Thinlit die. I am sure this one will get used a lot. The tag was stamped with the coordinating Sweet Stack stamp set. Thanks for stopping by!

Of course, Dalton has to make a silly face!
Disney world was awesome and the little kids wanted to live there!
Swimming was a big part of every day.
My Sadie is growing up much too fast, she is now as tall as Shelby and she is only 11.
My favorite picture from the trip, Ava was a little afraid to step into the waves but Dalton assured her he would take care of her.
My precious "littles", hopefully next time the "bigs" can go as well. Thanks for stopping by!

Today is my baby boy Dalton's birthday, can't believe he is 6 years old already. since we would be at the beach for his birthday, I made him a nautical themed birthday card.
I couldn't find a photo of him younger than two at the beach, I know I have some since he was only 6 weeks old the first time we took him.
Here is a picture of him yesterday jumping in the pool. He is very close to swimming but I am making him wear floaties still since I don't want to have to stay in the water all the time. I love this boy so much and he loves me back. I love my girls just as much but the relationship with him is different, I don't know what it is but it is special.

Yesterday was a beach /pool day and it was probably the best day yet. The kids have got to experience so many new things over the past three weeks and their expectations are high. When I said we were were going to rest for a couple days and then go at it again, they were a little disappointed at first. So, we packed up some beach toys, snacks, and lots of sun screen and walked down to the beach. I noticed there were a lot of crab holes around and after we got settled in, this little guy showed up. He was very friendly and even playful with the kids. He would come out and sit and stare at us for a while and then scurry back inside his hole only to reappear a few minutes later. He did this for over an hour and kept us all entertained.

Another card for $5.00 Friday classes. Thanks for stopping by!
Today's fun....today will be a beach day. Shelby and I were out on the beach at 5:30 this morning to watch yet another beautiful sunrise. There were sand dollars everywhere, we picked up a small sand bucket full in a matter of minutes. Yesterday we went to Universal Studios and I think this old woman overdid it a bit, my knee is very swollen and painful today. This has to be the best vacation we have ever had!

We spent yesterday at the beach and pool. The kids play hard at whatever we are doing and were ready for bed by 7:00 and were asleep in less than 5 minutes. For the littles, it usually takes 2-3 times up for a drink of water or to go to the bathroom, or to hunt for their bedtime snuggly, but last night they were asleep before I finished one bedtime story. Today's fun spot will be Sea World!
Sea World never dissappoints...the kids loved it.

I have a shaker card for you today. I used the new Envelope Paper to make the bag which was cut out with the Treat Bag Die. The star is part of the You're so Sweet stamp set. Thanks for stopping by!
Today we went to Legoland and the kids had a blast. They were amazed at the lego creations.
And by the independence they had, Ava was very excited to get to drive the car while Sadie and Dalton sat in the back seat. Ava told Shelby she now had her driving license and could drive her car when we get home.

involving the Berry Basket so we made this one using the Coaster Board and added a Watermelon Wonder bow to it. She also wanted to make a tag to go in it using a sentiment she had seen on Pinterest..."We had a berry good year but orange you glad it is summer". So we used the PL blank grid cards and she added the handwritten sentiment and we punched it to make a tag out of it.
Then we filled it with orange and berry items.
and a few strawberries.
and a flowerpot card.
The best part of this was that we made it together. We made two of everything because she didn't want to leave the teachers aide out. I am so proud of her, she has had a really good year. She made Honor Roll 3 times and then had two B's which knocked her off the 4th time. Her teacher gave her class a list of 25 things to choose from and had them to vote for who they thought would be most likely to become those things on the list. She was voted Most Artisitc and Most Likely to Become a Doctor. We got the artistic part but don't know where the doctor part came from!
Don't forget about FREE shipping and Free taxes while I am gone!

While I had the daisy die cuts out, I made this little flower pot as part of the end of the year teacher gifts for the kids to give to their teachers. Don't you just love this ribbon...it was tied onto some tape I ordered online the other day. I put it next to a piece of the Watermelon Wonder ribbon and it is the same exact shade. But alas...I used every inch of it to make four of these flower pots. This is just part of the gifts, I will show you the rest tomorrow!
We are still in Kentucky, I got to visit with some of my family yesterday. I hadn't seen one of my sisters nor my brother in 3 years so we had a lot of catching up to do. They live in the mountainous region of Kentucky and yesterday on the way to their house we saw a black bear sitting in the middle of the road. The kids went crazy with excitement and wanted to get out and pet it. Of course we didn't let them but we did stop the car and watch him for about twenty minutes. He had a sprite bottle that someone had thrown out and was trying to get into it. He finally managed and he turned it up and drank it. We had some crackers and the kids wanted to throw them out for him, it startled him and he ran off but not far. He sat and starred at us for a while. As we were on our way back he was out again and all the crackers had been eaten. We took some pictures and I hope to share them soon, the mountains make it hard to have Internet service and I haven't been able to have it long enough for my pictures to download.

Today's card was made with the stamp set, You've Got This. I colored my flowers with Blendabilities. I am continuing to use my blendabilities as I have had no problems at all with them but they are no longer available for purchase from Stampin' Up! The sentiment is stamped in Delightful Dijon ink, I am really liking this color.
Update: We made it to Kentucky in a little less than 8 hours and the littles did very well, I think the anticipation was enough to keep them excited and content. The first thing they did was jump in the pool for an hour and then to the room for another hour in the Cuzzi(Jacuzzi). They went to sleep easy enough but were up at 5:30 wanting to go swim again. Today we will visit family and friends, go to a local festival, take flowers to the family cemetaries, and I'm sure more swimming.

As soon as I saw the retiring list, I hurried and got this cute baby set because I do a lot of custom work and knew this would be good to have for that. Sure enough, I got a big order from a lady just yesterday wanting to replenish her supply of baby cards. She has been a repeat customer now for three years! She doesn't mind if the DSP is retired or if the stamp set is retired and always lets me make whatever I choose. Thanks Glenda P. for being so easy to please!
