Put a smile on your face...

I know its been a long while since I was here... I am sorry. I have thought about you while I was gone. .... that counts right? I left with the group {see below}} for a week of.. vacation...? I cannot classify it was vacation when there was 4 am wak up calls for the boys. They spent the first part of the week at Camp Perry, Ohio.

The ones that belong to me are  1SGT -Standing in rear; Son - first guy on the left with short; and Daughter is the third on the post, with black tee shirt. They were allowed to take a friend each... FOUR TEENAGERS... OH MY PATIENCE!!!!

The girls and I spend those days visiting some of the local sites... my favorite was the islands of Lake Erie...
I was so excited to learn that this was the southern most point of Canada - Pelee Island, Ontario... I told the girls that if they didn't behave they were off to Canada!!!

Put in Bay Island.. which I am not sure why someone recommended this for us.. its a small island with 57 liquor licenses on it... and some other stuff.. but like the two 14 yos cared about the bars and taverns.

Then the rest of the our week we were at Cedar Point, Sandusky, Ohio... .which I haven't laughed so much in my life... Roller Coaster Capital of the World... its was "crazy madness" {{teen age language}}


 and my favorite of the week... The Top Thrill Dragster! 


I did manage a few projects - we had a few hours of rain, twice... so I made some jewlery and some simple cards.. I will show those later this week.

In the meantime, I do have a card for you!!!!!!  Its based of the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge  and the Creative Sketches layout sketch


I smile when I see these Manly Mustaches. They do make me laugh. I have so many things I want to do with these.. aren't they fun?

I hope that todays post made up for some of my absence... I will have more later this week... I PROMISE!!!

Have a great day!

Hug the ones you love!

Thank you for stopping by!
