All Things Grow With Love

Hello!  I hope your having a great weekend! :>  I am a bit late with my Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge post as I was away for a few days!  We went on a little vacation to a close city in the US with our kids and with some friends of ours who also took there kids.  We had such a fun time by the pool, eating out and spending time together!  And I did get some shopping in there!  With a few new crafty items! :>  We ended up joining Chad's family at the next city (an hours drive) so we enjoyed spending time with the cousins, and I got more shopping done!

This week our sponsor is Annabelle Stamps!  They have such a great selection of stamps to work with!  They were so generous to us and provided us with stamps, I totally loved and All Things Grow With Love and got this one:

I have so many ideas and can't wait to play with this set again!  With being busy packing (why is it even a small trip results in so much to get ready?) I only had the chance to make one card!  

This week our challenge is Free For All!  How could you not join us and play along?

I loved stamping these leaves over and over in various shades of green!  :>

It's always fun to travel but with little kids it is quite exhausting so we are looking forward to a relaxing day today.  Well I still have to go grocery shopping as our fridge is empty!  This was our first time traveling since Carter has been sleeping in a bed so it was interesting!   Ariel usually falls asleep right away at night and Carter usually takes a bit to fall asleep.  Even though they were both exhausted it took them a little while fall asleep!  We had them sleep in separate beds but the third night they slept together.  That was so hard!  Because they were so exhausted they were even more worked up! And they woke up earlier than ever it was cute to hear them giggling when they woke up!  On the drive home Carter slept for 2 and a half hours of the 3 and a half hour drive home!  Ariel slept too, it was funny them conked out!

Here is a cute photo from the weekend,  at the restaurants we had the kids sit at there own table, we learned that Carter still needs to sit in a high chair otherwise he is roaming the whole restaurant! (Well at least the first night they sat us upstairs alone!)
When we met up with Chad's family we visited a sports store that has a ferris wheel inside:

I am feeling quite inspired which is really good since I have a lot of crafty deadlines.  But the list is a bit stressful.  Currently working on Ariel's birthday invites, I was going to go the easy route of a printed invitation or store bought but inspiration has struck at least I am halfway done!

I hope that you will join us this week!  You have until Friday October 28th 11:59 pst to play!  Please do check out the Wee Memories Blog for more deets and to be inspired by my fellow talented DT!!!
