War :)

Hi everyone :) 

Thanks for all the love on our weekend in Las Vegas photos :)

Today I wanted to share a couple of layouts I made for some challenges :)

The first one is for Crate's latest challenge which is to incorporate red into your page :)

 Used a lot of my older Crate papers and embellies :)

 Brookie loves to play the card game War ... and one night she convinced the boys to play with her :)


And since I had my Crate paper's all ready out -- I used some more on my next layout -- which is for the Chic Tags challenge --- to use some bling on your layout :)

So along with some Crate ... I of course incorporated some Chic Tags and some bling brads I had :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Our weekend :)

Hi everyone :)

For those that has me as a friend on Facebook :) You will know that we were in Las Vegas this weekend for Brian's 40th birthday! :) It was Me, Brian, Brookie and my in-laws (Adam was in Daytona, Florida with his Dad for the Daytona 500 NASCAR race... and thanks to all that sent texts, emails and messages about Adam on Saturday with the horrible wreck at the race that injured fans in the stands ... thank goodness he was NOT there Saturday.....) .... anyhoo ... we were in Las Vegas and had a BLAST!!! :)

I won a little over $600.00... Brian and the in-laws -- welllllll they don't want me to talk about it *wink* --- let's just say I was the only winner in the group :)

I wanted to share some pics from our weekend :)

I got Brian an "Over the Hill" balloon bouquet :)

The New York, New York casino :)

Brookie and Brian on a ride at Circus, Circus :)

Brian and Brookie in front of the New York, New York casino :)

In front of the M&M factory :)

 In our hotel :) 


 At the MGM Grand :)

Inside the Bellagio -- which is MY FAVE place to visit ... because of their beautiful garden -- every season is a different theme in the garden ... and this year it was "The Year of the Snake" :)

I love love love to go there first thing in the morning -- because you get to see the employees inspecting the garden's art for flowers that need to be replaced -- yes the children's outfits are made from FLOWERS! :)


The background of this ... all FLOWERS :) 



They had incense burning and had people throwing coins for good luck :)

Brookie throwing her coin in :)

We then went to Sam's Town that is off the main strip -- and they have an area that has "animals" and beautiful landscaping ... just pretty to walk around .... and I took Adam here YEARS AGO ...and I know I have a picture of me and him right in front of this same bear ... I am going to have to find it and do a side by side with this one :)


And Brookie went bowling in their bowling alley :)

All in all it was an AMAZING weekend :)

I will be catching up with all of you tomorrow -- we just got back a couple of hours ago -- and I have been sitting hear editing our photos and watching the Oscars :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
