Sketch Challenge #186
Hello everyone !!!! I know I have not posted in a long,
long, long time but there is a reason. There is even a term for it and it is called procrastination! That's me waiting till the last minute to do everything all at the same time. I really didn't mean to but there were so many little stuff
that keeps me from doing the big stuff- like my swaps.
Anyway, in the next few days I will be posting cards from my convention swaps, so stay tuned.

I got to play today with H & M Stamps and I could not resist coloring this bear pink. I used the Jumbo SA wheel and the Absolutely Fabulous sayings from Stampin' UP!

Stamps: Cozy On Up
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White

I'm Back !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Needless to say, I had a wonderful time in New York. Seeing my "old" classmates was really the highlight of my vacation. The dinner-dance at Leonard's, the picnic at Liberty Park not to mention our trip to Manhattan , Chinatown and the hours we stayed up late catching up with everyone were just too memorable to forget.
I really did not have much time to visit all the attractions in New York, but I was able to visit my sister in law in New Jersey and had a nice time at the Borgata in Atlantic City. My last stop was in LA where I stayed at my friend's place in San Pedro before I returned to home sweet home.
There is one thing that I wanted share with you after my trip and it is about friends.
I have not seen or talk them in so many years, but the minute we saw each other, it's like old times again. Pretty amazing , huh!
Anyway, till the next reunion....2010 !
