Sneak #3 + #4 ~ It's Vacation Time!


Oh can you believe the summer is almost here!  I can't wait!!  I was at my daughter's NJHS induction ceremony tonight, so happy for her as they passed on the lit candle to her and thought wow, the year is over.  Let the fun summer begin!  We have a few sporatic plans, like camp for 2 of the girls for a couple of weeks, VBS {as always!}, Disney in June and lots of beach, down time, relaxing! :)


But how about a quick trip to the Carribbean! One of the best vacations dh and I had was our trip to Atlantis in the Bahamas - highly recommended, I must say!  Although we didn't get to parasail, we pretty much did one of everything else there was to do at the resort and in the area.  But Riley and Sophie aren't short of fun or adventure - as you can see with this postcard from the islands card I created ... I had so much fun with this one!  These two stamps from Riley and Company are called Sophie as Carmen Miranda and Parachute Riley.  My card is pretty simple - I tried to work it in a different layout but really wanted to keep this background textured travel paper as the backdrop, so I just let it be :)   Riley is zipping in with a paper-pieced parachute while Carmen - I mean, Sophie - practices her dance routine on the sandy shores :)   Inside, I carried over the theme with a stamped sentiment to let everyone remember to balance the joys and wonders of every day with the busy-ness of life :)






And since today is Tuesday, you know what that means - time to get your vacation on!  This week's challenge at the Twisted Tuesday Blog is all about


VACATIONS!!  

And this week, the challenge will run for the next 2 weeks rather than one, so we're super duper excited to see what you post!  You can find the challenge blog here! :)

Thanks for stopping by today! I'm super excited to show off 2 more of the upcoming stamp releases - we go live at 10 PM on May 24th, this Thursday!  You won't want to miss it!  You can see what other samples the DT have created by checking out the links in my sidebar - right over there! ---->



Blessings!
