I'm baaack!

Well, hello there all!  I am still alive and kickin'!  Last week I was gone on vacation to Cabo with my husband.  Over all we had a nice time but there was a hurricane that affected the area so we were inside for almost two days of the four full days we were there.  Oh, well though, right?  I've got one photo for you of that on the bottom.  Before you scroll down though check out this neat Hot Chocolate Holder from The Cutting Cafe. 
This is one of the easiest files I've ever used.  I'm so glad I have a cutting machine but even if I didn't this would be a cinch to put together.  I've used some older SU! patterned paper with my new Big Shot snowflake die.  Very fun!

Above you can see that the holder is life a folder that holds two packages of hot chocolate mix.  The set also comes with some cute sentiments so I made a fun little note card to put inside too.  These will make excellent little gifts for friends and if you have a couple made up ahead of time you'll never have to worry about that person that you "missed."

And here is the photo of Todd and I at the restaurant at our resort.  You can see that we were right on the beach.  The first day that we could we were outside at the pool.  We were only out there for about an hour, I had reapplied my sunscreen two times in that hour and I still got sunburned.  I'm wondering if there are people that sunscreen just doesn't work for as I always burn.  Anyway, we went on an outdoor adventure that included zip lining, repelling, rock climbing.  It was super fun!  I'll have some more photos in a couple of days for ya too.  There are also a couple on Facebook if we are friends over there. 

Well, there you have it for today!  I am starting to work on some projects to donate to our PEO auction so you'll start seeing Christmas projects here very soon!

Have a wonderful Monday everyone!
