Vegas Baby!!!

Sorry I haven't posted in a couple of weeks. I've been in Las Vegas for my Spring Break. My parents bought a house there last year, so now my hubby and I head out west a couple of times a year since we have a free place to stay. We had a great time.... 13 casinos in 7 days! Pretty amazing for someone who doesn't gamble!

Here's a few pics from our trip...

This is a picture of my family in the gardens at the Bellagio. My brother, Mark, is on the left, then my mom and dad, and then me!

We went hiking in the Valley of Fire state park which is North of Las Vegas. My crazy husband, Jeff, seems to think he's invincible whenever there are rocks to climb. He climbs as high as he can get... without gear. For this reason, I refuse to go back to the Grand Canyon with him. He scared me half to death on that trip!!!

Um.... yeah... that's Jeff way up there. Can you understand why I won't go back to the Grand Canyon now??? :)

Awww! Aren't we cute? This is still in the Valley of Fire.

This is an honest to goodness picture. It looks like a postcard of the strip. We went to the top of "THE hotel" which is part of Mandolay Bay. There's a nightclub on the top floor (60th floor... yikes). Pretty awesome view... even though I was hugging the wall! :)

Okay.. enough vacation. I did do some stamping today. I participated in the color challenge on SCS. Today's colors were Bordering Blue, So Saffron, Pink Pirouette, and Chocolate Chip was an optional color. When I laid the colors out, I immediately thought of making a baby boy card. Most of my friends are currently expecting girls right now, but it never hurts to have a few baby cards on hand.

Here's my card...

Stamps: Nursery Necessities
Paper: Bordering Blue, So Saffron, White, Sweet Slumber DSP
Ink: SU Markers in Bordering Blue, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Classic Square Nestabilities, 5/8 inch So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon, Blue SU buttons, linen thread, dimensionals

That's all for today!!! I'm hoping to post tomorrow, but I'm a little behind on grading papers since I didn't even crack my school bag while I was in Nevada last week.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful day!!! :)
