WSC - Close as a Memory


Sorry for not posting in awhile but life somehow seems to come first at times. The kids were home for a three day weekend and Megan and I took some time to shop for a prom dress and accessories on Friday & Saturday. I'm happy to say that we found a BEAUTIFUL dress at Bloomingdale's in the Mall of America. Of course it was one of the first dresses we found, but had to make sure there wasn't anything better out there! After a full day of searching (remember the snowdaze dress search) we made a second trip back to the MOA to pay for it and get the alterations done. I must say, even though it was a full day of shopping, it was a fun day, with lots of laughs, (you wouldn't believe some of those dresses out there). It's always fun spending the day with Megan, I cherish those days as I know they are going to be harder to do the older she gets. I will be sure to share Prom pictures with you!


Well on to my card for Beate's weekend sketch challenge. I was finally able to find some time last night (late last night) to stamp. This is what I came up with. I love those jumbo eyelets but sometimes I have a hard time making sure they are straight when lining three of them up. This time was no exception!
Thanks for stopping by!
