Happy Monday!

To start off this week I was able to do the Monday Mojo challenge again. I have a new pack of decorative paper that I've had for a while and finally decided it was time to use it. This card was super easy to make since it only has one stamp. The swirl Cuttlebug folder was used to emboss the cream panel then mauve pigment ink was sponged over it. The Happy Birthday stamp is by Stampendous as are the circle stickers. Stream Adirondack ink was used for the sentiment, then the edges were sponged with mauve.

Now on to the weekend. We went to the USC vs Washington football game and it was our homecoming, my husband and I are both alumnus. It was so much fun and the kids had a great time too. Everyone but me won a USC shirt but I did win a luggage name tag, woo hoo!. Here we are Melanie, me and Greg in front of Tommy Trojan.


Here I am with my handsome hubby Paul. These pictures were taken before it started to rain, last year when we went it also rained. It hardly ever rains here and now its rained on us two years in a row but this time it didn't last long thank goodness!

Now here is a picture of my new tile, we are very pleased with how it turned out. I find it very hard to envision how home improvements will look when done. Now next week I will have to seal the grout, I'm not looking forward to that it will take forever.

Have a great week and thank you for stopping by :)
