A Relaxing Week

We just got back from a wonderful relaxing week at a cottage. The weather was absolutely fabulous and it was a fun time. It was also great to spend a whole week with my grandson who is such a joy to be around. Always happy and giving a big smile, he is just a sweetheart.

We went with a group of people (we had 3 cottages) and we shared one with my daughter, her husband and my grandson. A really nice cottage and great overall place. We actually are booking it again next year.

On the last night there we had the most amazing sunset. It truly was probably the nicest I've ever seen. Of course everyone had to get pictures with it as a backdrop and that's exactly what it looked like .. a backdrop.

So we made some memories and had some fun. That's what life is all about.

We are going to a cottage for a week (yes, they have internet access, yes, I'm bringing my laptop!). A nice relaxing week away from work ... and my daughter and husband and my grandson will be there too ... all week. A whole week with my grandson, I am sooooooo excited~!

Soooo... To celebrate my vacation I thought I would do a post and give away something that I gave away at the beginning of the year .... and was quite popular ... and you might of missed it. So if you did, here it is again.

You think you will remember ... but ha! that doesn't happen~! So here's your chance to make sure you know the date of those pages you've worked so hard to create.

I ask ONE FAVOUR -----> PRETTY PLEASE ------> Just a click on the link below because for every click I get a point and I have a chance to win an Apple iPad 2!. That's it ... just click on the link. So I am giving you this freebie in exchange for a click on the My Memories Designer contest link below That's fair isn't it? lol

Happy July ~

I know ... I know. But I'm not going to apologize this time because you know how it is.

My grandson is now over 5 months old and growing like a weed. He is so

Having a grandson has changed my life and even though we don't live in the same city we try our best to see him as much as possible. He lives 2 hrs away which isn't too bad but I do wish we were closer.

Looks like summer is finally here with the beautiful weather we are getting so far in July. Hopefully it stays around until December!

I have put some new items into LLL Creations Dollar Mart and I hope you will go check them out.

Natures Treasures - alot of cute elements that can be used in so many layouts. Get it here.

And also ... Sea Shells by the Sea Shore - most of these I collected from various tropical trips ... I love shells!! They really make a layout look great! Get it here.

So come on over and see everything I have available at LLL Creations Dollar Mart.

And I would love to give you a freebie this week - so here it is:
