Happy Sunday Everyone!
A bit rainy this morning here in Akron, OH but I think the sun will come out and it's going to be a BEAUTIFUL DAY! I'm so confident in that fact that I just invited the young couple from across the street over to grill out this evening. Ribs and locally grown corn-on-the-cob ... doesn't get much better then that!
But before the food prep begins, I wanted to share a little creation I made for the current Sassy Studio Designs challenge (vacation or travel) as well as the Corrosive Challenge (Birthday card with a number on it). These two have teamed up for a fun 80's Hop today so I'm going to join in on that fun time too!
How about this cute 'Disney Fan' image from SSD ... every kids first thought of a vacation destination is DISNEY!! I've only been there once myself (many years ago) but had a FABULOUS time! We even did a hot air balloon ride over Cinderella's castle ... very scary for someone who's afraid of heights like myself but still an awesome adventure!!
Here are a few additional qualifying challenges:
2 Sisters Challenge - Anything Goes
Di's Digi Designs - Stitching (faux or real)
Send A Smile 4 Kids - Anything Goes 4 Kids
My Creative Moments/Word Play Saturday - Birthday
2 Creative Chicks - Anything Goes 4 Kids
ABC Challenge Blog - "S is for Stitching" - real or faux
Card A Day Blog - August themed (birthday)

Digi Galore - Birthday Hop
Okay that's it for me today! Now it's time for me to 'Get Hopping'!
I hope you're having a fabulous day/weekend!
Unfortunately I must end on a sad note today!!
I received a call from my mother late in the evening yesterday with the sad news that she had lost yet another one of her 8 sisters. Yep, there were NINE girls in my mother's family (and 3 boys) and now there are only two of them left (my mom who is 83 and my Aunt MaryJane in TX who is the baby at 79). Aunt Ruth would have been 94 in September and she will truly be missed as are all my aunts/uncle before her. But I know that the love of her life (Uncle Lawrence) was waiting for her with opened arms when she entered into the Kingdom of Heaven!
R.I.P. Aunt Ruth!
