The Carolinas AND a Totally Stampalicious Reminder

I have had some posts recently, but I have actually been away for almost two weeks.  After a stressful September and early October, a vacation that had been put on hold was reactivated again at the very last miniute.  The Carolinas were our destination to see family and to relax  Here are just a few pictures to share......


Yep, that's right....that is our Angel enjoying the Grand Strand at North Myrtle Beach.  What a wonderful traveler she was....all sorts of new adventures for the girl.


This was my view each morning from my bedroom.  Nothing is better than waking up to the sound of the ocean.


.....and last, but not least, time spent with my nephew and his wife in their new home was very special.  We celebrated his birthday with a fabulous dinner and great chatter.

I am not even going to try to catch up on all the wonderful postings in blogland.......when I have the time I will peruse the work of my blogging friends, but just won't have time to truly catch up and comment. 

AND.......please be sure to check out the Totally Stampalicious Monday Challenge.  I do not have a card since we just returned today (Sunday) and I just didn't have the time to 'create' anything today.  A routine should be back in place by Wednesday.  And...while I was gone, Totally Stampalicious had a release.....lots of wonderful new sets, especially fun for holiday cards/packaging.  Be sure to check out the new sets HERE.

My disappointment on this trip was that I was unable to connect with two SCS/blog friends I had hoped to meet face-to-face, but it just didn't work out.....however I know it will during another visit to North Carolina in the future.

Great pictures for sharing, Joanne. I can hear those ocean sounds now. Wonderful family you have. Oh, I can't believe how big Angel has gotten.I was thinking she was still a little pup. She's beautiful.
