A week in my life...

I've been MIA (missing in action). Sorry about that, but it was a busy week!

I wasn't feeling very well on Monday and then on Tuesday I had both a wedding and a funeral after a long workday. Richard and I were the official photographers at my cousin Millie's wedding. It was actually a renewal of vows, but they went all out and decorated the pool/terrace area beautifully and had a gorgeous, yummy cake. They even had Mr. Paella come over and cook under the chickee hut. Very cool. If you're wondering why it was on a Tuesday, that's because it's their anniversary date. It was a perfect evening and their three sons were there, including David, who is just 7 months old and simply adorable. Here are a couple of pics of my beautiful cousin and her husband Carlos.





Afterward, we went to a funeral to pay our respects to Richard's best friend, Jorge, and his family. His grandfather passed away. He had been ill for a while and was well into his 80's so at least he lived a long life. The funeral home was filled with tons of floral arrangements and many people came to celebrate his life.

Last night, I was supposed to go to Barb's house after work to see my scrappy pals, but I got home late and was too exhausted. I miss all of them since I haven't seen them in a while. I hope we can plan another get together soon.

Today, I decided to finish some holiday layouts and make a mess in my scrappy room (mission accomplished!). I created a few layouts... here's a peek at a couple of them:

This is Richard's favorite. I bought this kit a long time ago at a convention and I never used it. The design is a bit different from what I normally create, but I love how it turned out. That Santa was a pain to piece together, but he's so darn cute!!! Love it.





And here's a layout of us with our BFF's. I should have used a different color for the letters because it blends into the design, but oh well!



And finally, I'm working on a very simple little 6x6 album for my mother-in-law. I used some of my stash to embellish the cover and I cut some holiday papers to create pages. Now I'm just waiting for the photos and it will be complete. I think she'll be very happy to have these photos of the family...



Well, I'm off to bed now. I'll clean up the mess I made in my scrap room tomorrow! Peace to all and happy scrappin!

Hey you! Busy week you had! Love the lo's--and I'm jealous you squeezed time in for them. I vow to do that myself...

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
