Treasures in the Mail!!

I haven't purchased much in the last bit but I have made a few Peachy Cheap buys!
I went over 9 months of not buying a thing from them - 
then BOOM - 4 purchases in a few weeks - 

Got two envelopes last week - 



I have a new LOVE for Simple Stories so the first was a MUST
- then the Brads another must
not pictured is the set of 5 packages of their enamel dots ! 

I could just hum they make me so happy!

now i need more paper to go with them - 
<<insert evil laugh here ! !!!!>>

Niagara Falls

Hy daughter had National Cheer Competition in Niagara Falls, ON
a few weeks ago - 
I can not tell you the fun I had!

Sometime travelling with other moms can be stressful
but me ans my side kick seamed to be in sync....

If you ever find yourself in Niagara head to Canyon Creel Chophouse 
Call or reserve online in advance
or like us go WAY early ans get a table with a falls view!!
(WE HIGHLY endorse this place! went twice!)


Our room had a great view of the American falls and you could see some of ours as well!
love that they were lit at night, couldn't see super well but still awesome!

We got to go to the Butterfly Conservatory - It was amazing!







On the way back we stopped and went down to the river 
- it was an amazing green colour.
This is just down from the Whirlpool - you can see it 
at the far top of the river.


Last day of competition was a stupid snow storm!
Really!!



The Snow didn't Hold us back - 
we walked a few blocks to Margaritaville 
and had Drinks!!


Mary-Jane, it have been almost 3 weeks already from out trip,
can we go again next week-end.
You pick the place, I am game ....

Friday Fun Day

Friday was a PA day here - so the kids didn't have school.
We headed to the park with Alex's buddy Kaya -
We flew a Kite and played & had a great view! 





After I go to go and spend a few hours with my Scrappy friends - 
I didn't create anything but did get a bunch of layouts in order!

This comes from one of my friends being a organizing / cleaning fiend! LOL
More on that in an upcoming post - trust me you want to see what she has going on!

Throwback Thursday #5

I didnt complete all of the Throw Back Thursdays, 
but this one looked harder, 
a bit of a challenge & it was to get it to look right and not dated! lol 
Check it out here:

Here is the layout 


and here is what I came up with

This is our Backyard Rink 

It isn't huge but they love to play out there & 
my husband takes great care of it!




Before my daughter was a gymnast - she was a hockey player - 
she still loves to play.

Another Day Another Sketch

Enjoying a quiet day at home,
I completes the next sketch at Sketch N Scrap

The background was a little loud 
which I usually don't do, but hey, why not shake it up.


Here is my my layout


last January was one of my daughters last gymnastic competitions,
she was level: Junior Olympian 6
hence the title.

Have a great Sunday all!
